The Vintage Cupcake

This is the cutest vintage cupcake place. It is located on 24th street in Ogden. You must see!


How clever are those vintage doors in different colors for the counter top? As you can see there are old windows, chandeliers, and more.
This was my first time meeting all these great bloggers. All of them are very talented with some kind of creative blog where they share their ideas.
Cutest little table and chairs through the walkway to the cupcakes.
Love the pink! It's all over. So girly and so charming!

Delicious cupcakes everywhere. Lemon, red velvet, chocolate and more. The sign for the Vintage Cupcake Co. is on a door. A pink one. Like I said. Soooo Cute.
There is even a pink mixer. I want one.

Above the door is this cute banner made from a combination of paper and trims.

I don't know how long this little place had been here but I think it's a keeper and we all need to keep visiting so we can keep these great cupcakes around. Who doesn't like a sweet treat?

More Finished Quilts

I finished these quilts a few weeks ago but I wanted to share how cute they are.
The fabric used in this line is designed by Cyndi Walker of Stitch Studio Design for Riley Blake Designs. As you can see the yellow, aqua and fuschia combination create a fun summer look and feel.
I try to make most of my designs geared towards the beginner sewer. This is an easy pinwheel block. A fun quilt if you want something quick and easy.

The line below is called Decadence designed by Samantha Walker for Riley Blake Designs. This fabric line will be a great addition to fall. It has wonderful oranges and browns. There are pears throughout the line as you can see I used the pears in the border.

This is a closeup of the center of this quilt using Dresden plate block.
This quilt is for the intermediate quilter because of the center. The outside blocks are squares and easy to assemble. To simplify you could put something different in the center block or leave it plain.

This fabric is called Back Country desig…

Las Vegas

My mum loves Las Vegas. She wanted to drive her new convertible to Vegas and have a Grace Kelly experience. So My sister and daughter and I brought our hats and headed to Vegas.
As you can imagine it was quite the funny experience trying to enjoy being in 106 degree weather with the top down and fumes and diesel coming from all directions from the other cars. Needless to say we only lasted about 45 minutes.

I wanted to share some of the things I love about Vegas that inspire me to design and create. Above those are rows and rows of beaded sequins drooping like lights and curtains coming from all directions. Beautiful!
Mosaics that create shapes and colors.



Lights in trees.

Fancy Shaped lamp shades in beautiful color combinations. Look at those shapes.
You know diamonds are a girls best friend. Look at those yellow diamonds.
The following pictures are from Le Reve. An incredible Circus O' Le show.
These were incredible flowers that dropped from the ceiling. It was a spectacular show.
