Loving The Blues... Tiffany Blue And Wedgewood Blue

Lately I have had an attraction to two classic shades of blue, Tiffany blue and Wedgewood blue. These beautiful, pale blue cookies make an elegant background for a simple monogram.


How Could She Be 18?

This past week marked a real milestone in our lives.
My beautiful daughter turned 18!
She has been a blessing, and we have celebrated each year of her life in a special way.

Over the past 18 years, I have saved quotes, verses, and little notes that I have written to her about... LIFE. I bound them up in a special book entitled "notes to elle". 

We love you Gabrielle!

Congratulazioni! An Italian Wedding...

...And a chance to use my new plaque cookie cutter, adorned with cherry blossoms and later personalized for the new husband and wife!

It Was A Minnie Affair

The special guest turned one!

Better Late Than Never!

There was a lot of working, creating, cooking, baking and entertaining, but very little blogging! Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season and have a wonderful 2013!

Christmas cookies this year consisted of pastel snowflakes... Enjoy!
