It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...

Today My friend Charlotte and I drove up to Pottery World in Rocklin Ca. for a little Christmas inspiration.
And there was a ton of it! It was so nice browsing all of their wonderfully decorated areas. There was a theme for everyone. There was whimsical and sophisticated. I gravitate more towards the whimsical, but enjoy looking at it all.

There was even an area that was very naturey, if that's a word???

The Polar Bears in the White area.

This was the Candy Cane area. Very Whimsical!

We loved the Snowman hat for the tree-topper. Charlotte purchased one for her Snowman Tree. I'm so glad you got that Charlotte!

There were Santa Clauses and Elves everywhere. Pottery World definitely took a lot of time and thought in their displays...very talented decorators!

Entrance into Winter Wonderland.

And my personal favorite Santa for the kitchen.

Thanks Charlotte, I had so much fun!!!

I'm Back

It has been SO long since I have created a post. I have seriously neglected my blog. There has been so much change in my life lately that it's taken some time to adjust. But with the holidays coming up I'm feeling some inspiration.

This last weekend I did the desserts for a baby shower. The color scheme was one of my favorites...brown and pink. It was so much fun working with these colors!

Chocolate and Strawberry Cupcakes

The dessert table arranged by my very talented and good friend Andrea
(I did not make the professional cake on the right)

Sugar Cookies, Cake Pops, Mini Lemon Cheese Cakes (plain and with raspberries and raspberry sauce) Andrea created the lovely flower arrangements.

Thanks for the kick in the pants Charlotte and Sue! ;)
And be sure to check out Sue's inspiring post at Rue Mouffetard on my favorite...White Kitchens!
