{Mini Shabby Chic Kitchen Cabinet}

In a couple of days my 8 year old daughter will be out of school and I will be busy trying to find things for her to do so that she won't be sitting in front of the tv all day. She likes to make minis with me, but that only lasts a few minutes. So I've spent every day this week making minis and this is what I came up with...


Cute little basket with blueberry muffins

Strawberry Cake 

5-layer chocolate cake, petifores, whoopie pies,
and a cute little jar of pink sugar

{My Trip To Seattle}

My husband and I took a trip to Seattle last week and
I wanted to share a few cool sites...

This is me in front of the ORIGINAL Starbucks.
I was so excited to see it and I don't even drink coffee!

This is me touching a BIG crab from the Pike's Place
Public Market. This is the place where they throw
fish like you see in the movies.

Creepy fish!

Tons of beautiful flowers for sale.
I wish I could buy these at home for $10 a bunch.

This is the famous house from the movie
 Sleepless In Seattle.
It recently sold for 2 million!

Of course...the Space Needle!

The syline view from the water. We were on the
Duck Tour and the bus drove right into the water!

It wouldn't be a real trip without one of these
goofy pictures you take of yourself.

And you know me...I was going to find some minis.
I spent way too much at a little shop in
Kirkland, Washington. I'm sure you'll see these soon
filled with things made by me.
