Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice..That's what little boys are made of..
and now I know this to be true.
Because of..the Alphabet Boys♥
This is Philomena..she flew here from Texas..arrived safe and sound and ready to brave our cold winters..she has a special spot on my windowsill..that way the sun can warm her.
She was not frazzled.. nor tired,nor jet lagged..
She traveled lighly..no extra baggage..unless cuteness would have counted.
She is tiny enough that she could have lots of room in her first class seat.
She enjoyed the best French Cheese and a spot of wine.
She read her favorite books..and requested Ratatouille as her movie.
I am going to take such good care of her..
I loved baking those shortbreads with her..the recipe was courtesy of here..we loved munching on them w/ tea and honey..
I took out cups a lovely client gave me..they were his mother's..how sweet was that? He and his wife came for dinner and he noticed I loved old things..and old china..the next time I saw him..he insisted I have them..as they did not use them.his lovely wife agreed.
Years ago.Seems like 100 actually..and other times..like yesterday.
Many people have collections..I seem to have comfortably ...serendipitously... and happily.. fallen into the cookie stamp/cutter collection category withouth knowing what hit me.
A new stamp..is always thrilling.
Damn it feels good to be a baker stamp..is comfy w/ sharing the spotlight w/ Philomena.
Generous of heart:)
Like Custard Cream..and the French ones..and the Home Made..And Love You..and Linzers..Starbucks..Ricardo,Christmas and Valentines ones..Easter and Halloween..Minions ..Star Wars have been relegated to the Littles..the list goes on and on...Brigitte..remember?
Je te remercie Sarah:)
Un coup de coeur pour moi.
You may remember Philo in our gardens too:)Philo was in a clients garden..when she moved..Philo came home w/ me.
Is it just me or has winter..flown by..well .. is flying by..?
I think I talk more in winter..because we partially hibernate.
I bought Calendula seeds..I forgot last year and they didn't self seed..
I missed them..you only really miss something when it's gone~
I was reminded all summer~
