So another birthday has flown by, and i am not saying how old i am (add 2 + 2 (x 11) and it was also the same week that i have been on Etsy a whole year!! But i really did'nt participate in the forums and promotions until January which is when i started getting sales. I now have 2 shops - kookyhandbags and talkofthetown.....and i'm concentrating on getting more stuff in soon. The new shop talkofthetown is mainly about jewelery, since i have always had a passion for fashion and jewels and i have been making jewelery for myself for a few years now. It's simple jewelry, and i love experimenting with it, and making things that i would want to wear myself (of course!!) and i get a lot of inspiration from magazines and books.
Also for my birthday Steve took me out to the Beer Bistro in Toronto for a lovely dinner with Steak frites and mussels, and the most amazing flourless chocolate cake make with stout, so rich and dense!!! Then we went to see The Police!!!! Wow, what an amazing performance, i can't believe i got to see them!!! I used to have a huge crush on Stewart Copeland back in the early 80's and i am so blown away by his percussion skills....just amazing to watch. Sting looks good and Steve was very impressed with his performance, saying he did'nt realize how good he actually was! They also finished up with a 4 song encore...quite impressive and wonderful! I had a great birthday this year and thanks to those who sent me cards!
roses from Steven
This is actually soap!!! Kellarama soaps are very fun and smell amazing! This soap actually smells like a hostess cupcakes.....i used to eat a lot of these!!! I smell this soap often and keep it on a pretty blue willow plate and try to fool my guests....Steve's brother tried to take a bite out of it!!!
a birthday petit four from the Scottish bakery.....it looked better than it tasted...
but these cakes which are alot like those chocolate covered marshmallow cookies were so decandant and fluffy!!
I got these potato 'crisps' also from the Scottish bakery....as you may already know, the brits call potato chips 'crisps' and their fries are chips!
we got this old gumball machine and just recently filled it with the gumballs......we tried to purchase one with a nickel but it did'nt work!!!
i made pumpkin nut cranberry bread...
i love having it warmed with butter! so delish!
