A "Rosey" Happy Fathers Day to All Men!

One more thing. I remember a poem on this father's day that I heard many years ago and I just cry and SOB every time I hear it again. Click to go there and read it from June of last year: Poem

Happy Father's Day to all you fathers, grandfathers and future fathers. You're gonna love it, sweet men!

Okay, I finished 6 little faux cupcakes yesterday and the day before. Hubby kept wondering what was keeping me so busy! But I just love cute for "eye candy" and we ALL know how I feel about "eye candy"!! And these I scented with Crabtree & Evelyn oil of roses and do they smell luscious, I tell ya.....uh huh!!! You should smell this house. I can only get her oils when I go to Seattle to visit with "gorgeous granddaughter" aka GGD or back to California to visit with daughter and son. So I hoard it passionately! Hah

Oooooh and my Apple Mighty Mouse is working again! Dilemma solved. Now, as Ronda says, I can keep my $50 and spend it on yard sale finds or more roses of some sort for this house. Definitely my kinda chick!!


  1. Oh I have never tried that oil...I will have to find some here.
    Woo hoo $50 bucks you can do some serious junkin' with that!!!

  2. Those are the prettiest "faux" cupcakes I've ever seen!!!!


  3. Yeah, the captchas are very long today; I noticed that (and swore at it ha ha!) when I was catching up this morning.

    As for the google reader, also check out blogger's new blog roll feature that they introduced earlier this month.

    One of the ways you can sort the display is by those with newest content. Since I check my blog more than I check my reader, it's been very handy since I rolled everything over a couple days ago.

    You can find the new tool on your blog layout page. As you are setting it up, you can tell it to transfer everything from your google reader automatically, and then you just add the others manually.

    OK, that last part was a pain in the sit-upon, but it's a handy feature now that it's up and running.

    OK, back to the easel! Happy sunny day to you!

  4. Connie, those little cupcakes are delicious! Deb
