They're Here.........

Do you all remember my "8" Things Tag post from last week and how I mentioned that one of the things I was looking forward to was the arrival of some new treasures that I purchased from Etsy?

Well after just short wait, they arrived this past weekend and I'm thrilled to bits and am so excited to show you what I found.

If you have ever had the chance to visit visit Rhea at Miss Rhea's Sweet and Shabby Roses , you will know that she is a sweet lady and a wonderful artist who creates the most beautiful faux pastries and other items in the softest shades of pink, blue and aqua. I purchased two different items on this most recent shopping trip.

The first thing I purchased was a set of three gorgeous fabric eggs embellished with pretty trims and paper roses. They came in several different colors and I chose the baby blue ones. The details on these are amazing and you can definitely tell she puts a lot of time and care into making each one. Being the sweet and generous person she is, she also threw in a larger pink one as well at no extra charge. I could only fit the pink one and two of the blue ones into my little blue weaved ceramic basket..

The second item I purchased was set of three faux cookies in the pretties shade of pink. They are edged with white frosting and embellished with more pink roses. They are way too pretty to eat so it's a good thing the aren't real cookies.

Now, for some more personal pictures, I just had to show a few pictures of my darling twin niece and nephew (Kylee & Hunter) who turned "5" years old last Friday.

My "Little Twinkies" as I used to call them have grown from this.......

To this..........


My goodness, did that first five years ever go fast. They are so much fun to have around along with their big sister McKenzie who is almost "8". They are definitely very loved and very spoiled.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week. Enjoy the upcoming weekend.

See you soon!!

Gorgeous eggs and cookies!! I have been having the worst time finding those paper roses in my area!! If yours should ever need dusting, I use a soft paint brush to clean them! Cute little ones! Amazing how they grow! Lori
