My Little House and a new Cookbook

Hello bloggers, I've been a little busy. I did the happy dance today when the mail showed up today. It was a very good mail day. My little house I ordered from Kindra arrived safe and sound. It is so nice ladies. She does wonderful work. I can't wait to see it all lit up tonight. Thank you so much Kindra, I just love it! I'm not sure if it will stay there. I have to tweak a little bit to see if I like it for awhile.

Next, Robert and I baked up some sugary goodness. I got the new Martha cupcake book today and this cute cupcake apron. It's so darn cute, I can't stand it. We made chocolate chunk cupcakes and they were delicious. I already have the cookie cook book and couldn't wait till this one came out. I go in spurts and love to bake. I have started channeling my inner vintage housewife. If you can't tell from my new button on my blog. It's a real pick me up and putting on an apron really puts you in mood to get something done. I don't know what it is but I just love an apron and I've been picking up some new ones on etsy. They have about everything you could imagine, really neat fabrics. I ordered a cherry one, matching ones for my daughter and me and then one just for my DS. His has cupckes and his name on it. I can't wait to surprise him with it. My DD has one just like mine already and he always felt left out so I think he will like this.

So I challenge you to go tie on an apron ladies just like our grandmother's and bake something sweet for your family soon!
Have a great night!


  1. Hi Carey,
    Love your apron and cupcake book. I keep looking at cupcake books at the bookstore, but haven't picked one up yet. I made my granddaugther Josie and I matching aprons...bright green with cherries on them and we baked something almost everytime she comes over to visit.
    Have a great weekend.
    hugs, Cindy

  2. Love Kindra's work too, I have her spring blocks...yes she does great work:)

    Love your apron and your pic of you wearing it!

  3. I'm so happy the house got you safe and sound. :) It's looks great in your home. And I love the cabinet it's sitting on. :)

    I would enjoy baking cupcakes more with a cute apron like that! Gotta love Martha! I got her cookie book for my SIL for Christmas. Wish I would of bought one for myself.
