~ Playtime... in pictures ~


Grab some tea, a glass of wine or whatever you love and come relax for a bit.... I won't talk your ear off this time. :) I'm going to be very quiet while we stroll through my world in pictures this week... The photo tour starts with a new bakery counter I made and takes you through my week of baking and also my new precious and well loved things I've bought and done to my miniature cottage, Summer Rose..... Enjoy...



















Breathe and relax more ... that was easy, wasn't it? Where did it take you? To a bakery in Nantucket on a summers day where bare feet are allowed? A shabby chic bakery in East Hampton? Or a tiny little corner bakery near your home with fresh baked bread daily? I hope all of the above :)

Now onto Summer Rose updates....

New Roses for the porch :)




A new bread tin I've wanted for so long... and cookbooks, made my me.


I made a pretty sink skirt... I love ruffles!


I had fun rearranging furniture...


Making shelves...


Buying beautiful new items so Summer Rose is ready for Spring makes me happy :) I love canning and so I had to have these! {Source at end of post}


Notice the charming pink pie dishes on the stove? I had to have them too :)



And that , my dear friends, was my week. Now it's time for me to go get some tea and relax, just like you :) I'll grab my ipad, get in my comfy chair by the window, make a grocery list for what to have in the house for when it snows tomorrow, and then dream about Spring :) Unfortunately yes, reality here is 3 inches of snow tomorrow. Not that bad I guess , at all.....

Wishing you blessings and sweetness, always!

And as usual, I made you a sweet treat this week... You get to lick the bowl :)


Hugs and love,

Cynthia xo

Note: The beautiful canned goods were purchased here: Lug Art Petit

I just love your minis... Do you make most of them? You certainly have the talent for the "cottage" look and feel. When I get to my mini house... I'm going to try and turn it into more of the cottage look.... I'm getting such inspiration from you. May I ask where you find the cute cottage items? Store? Online? etc...

Thanks for sharing... I look forward to your next post...and you can babble if you want.

Have a fantastic weekend...

Your cottage is one of my favourite little property! I love the sink skirt. There is such a pleasant and dreamy ambience in that little cottage. I always love visiting!
