~Pink Strawberry Cupcakes~

Oh my, how delicious these pink strawberry cupcakes look! if only they were real, actually I'm glad they are not since I don't think cupcakes are on my "diet". I just had to have them when I saw them on Jennifer's blog; For the Love of a Teddy Bear. She makes these lovely cupcakes herself and sells them in her ETSY Store (needfulpink).
They arrived today on my doorstep, it was like opening a present with anticipation. So of course I had to take their sweet yummy picture. They posed quite well don't you think. Smile for the camera cupcake!

Gary and I made the plate stands with the domes. To my surprise, Jennifer added these very sweet scented strawberry's (I love RED).
Look what just happen to get into the picture, just the most beautiful mosaic lamp in the world (I think) made by Penny from The Comforts of Home. Jennifer sent along the kindest thank you card I just had to share it with you.
Thank you Jennifer for being such a wonderful blog friend and for your talent. I have said before that I adore anything had made, it means so much to me. The time and effort and love that goes into every ones craft is so special.
When I look at homemade crafts I have purchased for my home I have such a warm feeling, since I know the person who made it.

Enjoy your day,

Oh Elizabeth! I'm so glad you like them...They look so beautiful on the cake plate you and gary made!!...I also forgot to tell you, to dust them off I just use a dry soft bristle tooth brush it works really well.... I had to change my background because one of my bloggers had said she couldn't read my blog,that only the pictures showed up for her. I must have done something wrong when I put the last background up but I don't know what??? I made the banner with a picture from home....Thank you for all the kind words your so sweet! Have a great weekend, Love and Hugs, Jennifer

They are gorgeous, honey. I have some faux food also but I was just wondering why the craze these past few years for all this? Hmmmm, makes me wonder but I'm delighted for it!

Hi Again, I forgot to tell you, the wax strawberries are candle tarts and you can use them in an electric or tealight tart warmer...they make your whole home smell so yummy and one lasts a pretty long time depending on how long you melt it...Have a great day Elizabeth, Hugs Jennifer

The lamp is adorable!!
