And I do too! 


  1. I love petits fours but the mess I make when trying to create ridiculous..Lol but I would buy one or two:)Have a great weekend!

    1. Like you, I would rather buy a Petit Fours! Pretty and tasty, but yes, messy and a lot of work! xoxo

  2. I do love having herbs growing outside in the summer. I have several pots filled with them and have enough herbs for whatever I need to cook. I can never grow them indoors so summer is herbs season for me.

    1. I can't grow them indoors either. I love fresh herbs and take full advantage of them in the summer months! xoxo

  3. Lots of great ideas. Love those pretty tea sandwiches. Have fun with your new doll house. Love and hugs, Elaine

    1. Thanks so much Elaine! I would so love to have a tea party! Wouldn't it be fun to have tea together? Now that's a lovely thought! Love and hugs, xoxo
