...oh how I wish I had a plate full of Holly's pretty wee cupcakes with their perfect 'granny knicker pink' coloured icing ~ ever so 'granny chic!' I've been noticing a few yummy cupcake pictures popping up around the blog-o-sphere lately, such as here and here. the more colourful and 'sugary' looking they are the more I want them! it's been such a long time since I've made cakes of any kind ~ carrot cake, banana bread, chocolate brownie cake or even the good old lemon drizzle ~ I really must try harder and set aside some quality cake time... ;) always, remember to pop on over to 'all colours in...' if you need to kick start your Monday morning with a burst of beautiful colour!

...before I go I must say a huge thank you to the 'jippety jappety happy' Mitsy, of ArtMind, for her wee post this morning... :)

...and lastly a huge Congratulations to my dear blogging buddy miss Leanda who tied the knot with her man this weekend ~ Congratulations my gorgeous friend!



  1. Somehow 'granny knicker pink' has a much lovelier ring to it than 'old man undies beige'...!

  2. how very true Tania ~ i don't think a cupcake topped with 'old man undies beige' icing is nearly so appealling... ;)

    Emma, looks like you're going very vintage too this week - perhaps I should take a break and send 'em over to your place this week.

  6. Hi Emma I've just been taking a look at your good news about 'Artful Blogging' how great is that. Your pretty pictures certainly deserve a place in there. I know I'm a bit behind with the news, having trouble keeping up with all the blogs, there's so much to read.

  7. Wow. I just opened my fresh off the press copy of Artful Blogging. You the first place I'm stopping. Any fellow crocheter is a friend of mine. Love your yummiel palette of color. Congrats on the article. Your photos are stunning. Stop by for some lemonade anytime. I'll be out in the garden.
