A Very Pretty Party

This is one of the prettiest parties I ever did see...

Just LOOK at it all, I don't know where to start. The decor, the treats, the drawing in of the amazing color wall...I mean seriously, this is amazing. You must check out Griottes, the original site from whence all this fabulous sprang, there are even more incredible photos. 

This is definitely one for the inspiration files!!

Tokidoki Toys

This is Polpettina. Isn't she cute? Once my kiddo saw this little creature she begged and pleaded and begged some more. She got it last Valentine's Day. I've asked her to be careful because Polpettina is a bit poky, even though she's vinyl.

Polpettina is one in a line of toys from a company called Tokidoki. You've gotta check them out! I'm quite partial to the Stellina Unicorno Plushie.

Stellina Unicorno Plush

Isn't she a cutie pie? Not so poky!

Happy Pink Sugar Dusted Cake

I recently came across a charming French blog that someone pinned on Pinterest -- Minireyve. And as I was scrolling and exploring -- 'scrollexplore' -- just made up a new word, I saw this cake o' Pink Sparkle Fun. Love the duck in the middle! LOVE the way just the edges, sides and the very middle has the pink, with other colorful sprinkles added for extra embellishment.

Prettyrific Room

I saw this room yesterday over at Bleubird Vintage. The original images and whole house tour can be seen at The Selby. Made me stop in my tracks.

A little bit of pink, a little bit of sparkle, and A WHOLE LOT OF FUN.

It's Little Girl Heaven!

Kawaii Plushies

Are these plushies not the cutest? Saw them over at Super Cute Kawaii...

(kawaii means 'cute' in the Japanese -- so does this mean that the name of this site really means Super Cute Cute? Love it!)

The plushies come from another adorable site, Shop, and if you are anything like me, you are going to FREAK OUT at how much Kawaii cuteness is over there!

(Be sure and click on the Japanese Fancy Shop link, it's so awesome...)

Spring Shower Petit Fours

These lovely almond flavored petit fours from Martha Stewart look AMAZING. I've never made petit fours before, but for these, I think I'd be willing to try my hand at the process!

Arty Yummies

Food & drink illustrations for

Beautiful, don't you think? This art comes from a French site, 52k.

I'm not sure what's better, looking at lovely photos of food, or gazing at delightful art renderings of food. All I know is, I'd like to eat and drink each one of these creations...

I also like this an awful lot:

Cupcakes illustration No 2 - 8 X 10 Food art print - Kitchen wall decor

You can find this cupcake print at Lucille Prache's Etsy shop in an 8x10 size for $25. I think this would be really charming in a kitchen!

I ADORE her Strawberry Pie print:

The strawberry pie recipe - 8X10 Limited edition print No 6/50 - Food art print - The kitchen collection.

She's got TONS more, you must go see! HERE.

I think a little series or group of four hung together would be beyond charming.....

A Pretty Pink Balcony


A buddy of mine pinned this picture from Apartment Therapy on Pinterest, isn't it charming? Look closely at the cup on the table. It's a MOOMIN cup! (You can read about my Moomin love here.) And you can find the cup here.

I want to be sitting at that table! Drinking from a Moomin cup!

Strawberry White Hot Chocolate

Now that it's Spring, this Strawberry Hot Chocolate from Bakingdom looks like a more fitting warm drink than traditional cocoa hot chocolate, don't you think? Especially when it's topped with rainbow sprinkled whipped cream hearts?

Click here to get the full rundown on this frothy, pinky, sprinkly, creamy confection of a drink.
