Friendship Cards in Our Tutus

My friend Margie and I decided one day that we needed a tutu.   So we made one - and then of course, we had to model them.   We laughed for hours - we laughed as we made them, and then we hollered and laughed during the photo shoot.   It was one of those crazy times when things clicked and suddenly we were having the time of our lives.   I hope you have a precious fun friend like Margie!

I immediately took a few of the photos out to Zazzle and made some cards.  I gave a few cards to my sister last week - and she loved them!  Next time you and your BFF have one of these silly fun days, get someone to take your photo and make some fun cards at Zazzle.  It does help you to treasure the day, no doubt!  And looks like people enjoy cards with silly little old ladies having fun!

Delightful Turtle Accent Lamp


This is an absolutely beautiful turtle accent lamp and would certainly be appreciated by mom, grandmom, or the newly married couple on your list.   The bronze-ton legs and head support over 100 colorful pieces of cut glass in treasured Tiffany-style.  This elegant conversation piece is only 4 inches high and 8 inches wide, so it is easy to find the perfect spot for it.

This gorgeous accent lamp uses only a 15 watt bulb, so it is definitely more for appearance than for lighting, but it's pure beauty will make everyone gasp.

Cute Cake Stands

I do love whimsy and these unique cake stands are certainly that! This particular one features a lady with big green eyes, colorful jewelry and a hat resembling a lamp shade adorned with a big red bow.  Oh, and she's wearing a little black dress.
There are two other cake stands in this set and they can be stacked together to form an incredibly cute cupcake stand.  Cupcakes are very popular these days and this is a fun, fun way to display them. 
These cake stands are available individually but together they are smashing!  Desserts served on these cake stands will get noticed!  Very cute for a shower, ladies' tea, luncheon, or any other get together.  They are wonderful gifts as well.  Think of your favorite baker, a new bride, or anyone who loves to bake cakes and entertain.
These are not only functional cake stands but they are also kitschy, whimsical, fun pieces of art.
