~ The Summer Bakery ~



Hello sweet friends! First I want to thank you all for such lovely and appreciated comments on my last post about the Tuscan Kitchen! That meant so much to me! I hope you all are enjoying a beautiful summer and had a great 4th of July too!

After the Tuscan kitchen was complete, it was time to get to work on some items for my Etsy shop again. I had so much fun creating new miniatures this week so I wanted to share some with you today. It's more of a pictorial because I have a busy couple of days ahead working on an article for a miniature magazine which I'm so thrilled about! I'm also being featured in a couple other magazines this summer that have me over-the-moon happy :) Stay tuned!

Well here goes the pictorial of a Summer Bakery scene I created for a photo-shoot, so grab some iced tea, or whatever your fancy and come along for a tour of my sweets!....





A pretty new bakery counter filled with fresh baked cupcakes, all different kinds of frosting's and lots of other yummies!


Key lime parfaits too :)




Can you see yourself sitting in this little Cupcake Cafe? :)












There's lots of sweets to chose from!
what's your favorite?


You can sit right by the window and enjoy the passer-by's, that's my favorite place to be in a sit down bakery :)
And I've made it nice and pretty for you with cottage accents and pillows too :) These beautiful pillows were bought at this sweet little shop: JillysLittleGifts
I love them!


There's cakes and jams, and so many items to choose from...






I also had a little fun with the black and white aspect of photoshop for an upcoming book idea I have....another stay tuned! No lol, it won't be in black and white but some vintage inspired ideas might be incorporated...


My brain is over loaded with ideas {anyone in the creative field knows how this feels lol} and there aren't enough hours in the day to do them all, so I'm doing one thing at a time and I have my "Summer list" in hand :)

"Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will." ~ George Bernard Shaw.....So true!

Here a few more minis I created this week....






I also found a little time to do some miniature canning of fruits and veggies for Bel Sole, the Tuscan kitchen...


Well that's about it for now, I hope you enjoyed my little tour and thank you for always coming on my creative walk with me! The support I get from friends and followers is what keeps me passionate and excited to come up with new and fun things, so Thank YOU!!


I hope this summer is being good to you all! I'll leave you with a little peek at where I spend my hours off.... Long Island is surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in the world and to me, going there is my second favorite place outside of the studio! It's rejuvenating! And I collected some Sea Shells for you :)

Wishing you a beautiful and blessed week ahead!

Lots of love,

Cynthia xo

PS: The Bakery counter featured in some of the scenes will be available later today in my Etsy shop. The taller Etagere is already sold and on it's way to a lovely new home :)
