And how happy are these hand-painted bowls. I am so excited about my discovery of The Bocket Store on Etsy! What a great way to end the week...
Sometimes there's nothing better than creating a modern, new look for a vintage piece. Each dot is hand painted with love, no doubt. So fresh and cool. I want one...or two!
Dot. Dot. Dot.
What's old is new again...beautifully.

Super. Cute. I found these adorable daisy lollipops on the blog Funkytime and immediately knew they were share-worthy. What a perfect summer wedding favor.
Here is a tutorial...it's quick, easy and no-mold needed!
You will need:
2 cups of sugar
2/3 cups of water
1/8 teaspoon Cream of Tartar
2-3 drops of flavoring oil
daisy of other edible flower (lavender, pansies, chamomile...)
Combine the sugar and Cream of Tartar with the water. Stir them together until the sugar is dissolved. Boil the mixture until its 290 degrees F. (Or put a drop of it in cold water which results in a hard bead.)
Remove from heat and add the flavoring oil. Pour the mixture into the prepared molds as shown here. Place a little daisy carefully face down on the hot candy. Pour a little bit more hot candy over the flower to cover the backside.
Cool down and wipe the powdered sugar off the lollies. Rinse them with a little bit of water to get all of the sugar off.
Waa-lah! Happy Lollies! Thank u Funkytime...
After making my strawberry picking debut this summer at my favorite local farm...(check out my loot!)
I was totally inspired by these colorful (and tasty!) berries. The possibilities for such sweet accents are endless! But I would definitely say less is more with this one...the word accent is key.
Here are some of my most favorite ways to add a splash of strawberry...all are perfect for a shower - or a farm or garden wedding. Swoon.
Nothing says summer like strawberries...so go find a local farm (or farmer's market) and pick while the pickin's good!
