~ Buttercream and Roses ~

It's me again :) I rarely do 2 posts within a few days of each other, but I'm heading out for a mini vacation so I wanted to leave you with a little more sweetness before I go! I'm staying at a friends house for 4 days and while I will still be working on miniatures , I'll be doing it without interruptions and normal life chores getting in the way :) Kinda like a writer who goes off to create in peace... I also consider these 4 days similar to the movie "The Holiday" , but my girlfriend isn't staying at my home lol, she's off to the mountains for a bit. It's similar for me to the movie because it's such a sweet little Cottage! I light a fire each morning at 7am to accompany fresh biscuits and jam, and then in the evening it gets lit again for ambiance ,wine and friends. I'm looking forward to it! I'm bringing my Ipad with me, but I haven't figured out how to use it to blog , yet :)

So onto some sweetness...This little bakery table is in my Etsy shop {as of writing this} and it was such a joy to make. I did the quilted top with cottage patterns and decoupaged it to give it a wonderful "quilt" look. I use quilts on my real life tables all the time, it's my favorite choice for a tablecloth {!!} , so I wanted to do one in mini..... I titled this table "Buttercream and Roses" and it's signed and titled on the back.

It's filled with sweets of all kinds and cottage accents that speak to the cottage sweet style I so love!

I'm leaving you with a darling little cupcake to enjoy....You have a choice of chocolate or vanilla with delicious buttercream frosting! :)

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead and a fabulously sweet weekend too! I'm off to pretend I'm Cameron Diaz :)
