Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Garden Party Cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago we had a little garden tour in our neighborhood. At the last garden we enjoyed a little cupcake refreshment. Aren't they cute? Chocolate cupcakes, oreo cookie crumb frosting and the little vegetables on top were made of candy. The carrots were starburst...The lettuce was cornflakes covered in green chocolate...
The peas were green m & m's the pod was a starburst as was the radish... The little green sprout was something like a sour thing...I can't remember, but they were so cute and fun. These were the only pictures I got on the garden tour. Sad but true.

It snowed today. The highs are in the 40's. I miss California on days like this!

Sorry you got snow. Folks that came through Strawberry yesterday were saying they had to chain up....Us.......? here..... ?we got w.i.n.d.!
The kind that beats everything to death. It was cold as well. I think maybe Julie's right and maybe spring isn't going to come this year..... except wait, this weather is springtime in Rockies weather......sometimes! lol.....
( ok, if you don't want to laugh, go ahead and cry...:-D )

Maybe we'll get summer next month...
LOVED the cupcakes. Thanks for telling us what they were made with.... way cute!
Enjoy your day.

The cupcakes are so cute! And I cannot believe, while the weather is witheringly hot here, that anywhere it could possibly be snowing.
