On the third day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

The Sweetest Christmas Decorations EVER!

By on Thursday, December 24th, 2009

You all are never going to believe these sweet decorations I found on Bakerella today.  I want her to come decorate my house next year.  These are just a few of the photos so head over to Bakerella to see the others.  I am absolutely speechless…





My Cupcake Collection

By on Thursday, December 24th, 2009

Over the past few years, I have been on a cupcake collecting mission. I love cupcake clothes, books, stickers, bags; pretty much anything that has a cupcake on it begs to be in my collection.  My friends and family have graciously helped me by giving me numerous treasures or calling me to tell me where they have seen cupcake items.   I also loved making my own cupcake crafts and buying other handmade cupcake items from Etsy

Recently my sister-in-law asked to borrow some of my cupcake collection to display in her library’s children’s section.  Here’s the display:


She added some great literature to the display to encourage others to read about cupcakes.  She is helping to build the next generation of cupcake lovers!  So if you live in New Jersey, stop by the Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan and say hello to all my cupcake stuff and my sis-in-law.  My collection will be there through the end of  January.  I am happy to share my cupcake collection with others but boy, do I miss them!

Day 10 & 11 of Christmas Cupcakes!

By on Thursday, December 24th, 2009

Ahhh … finally home with my family in good ol’ New Hampshire. After a long day of traveling yesterday I was ready to get back to my parents house and settle in with a cup of hot chocolate, or maybe eggnog or even hot mulled apple cider, that would be perfect! But what if you could have any of these in the form of the Cupcake? Well no need for you to look up the recipe, I have done that for you.
