Chic Chalkboard

Found this hanging in a cute little cafe and just loved it!  Looks like an old tray painted with chalkboard paint and they have glued a brooch on it.  Fabulous idea for those uplifting thoughts!

This little gem of a card is from Hallmark and speaks my inner-most passions...writing and everything French!  The little bird is a bonus, too.  J'adore!

Dessert Boutique

It's such a thrill to visit Cupcakes by Liz in Joplin, MO.  The uber cute dessert spot is a real treat not only for the jumbo cupcakes and other yummy pastries, but it's only open Friday-Saturday from 3:00 to 10:00 p.m. On this particular visit, I indulged in the Lemon Paris cupcake.  When you dine in, your cake is always presented on a decorated plate.  I paired this with a French Press coffee, of course.

Visit to find your own craving.  Also, you will find their amazing story of re-building after the F-5 tornado tore through Joplin, MO destorying the original bakery and the faith and heart of their family and community in making this wonderful new home sweet home.  A delight, indeed!

A Curious Find

Things around here are looking curiouser and curiouser.  Adore this statue of Alice stepping out of her Wonderland storybook at the Carthage, MO historic library.

Added roses and fallen petals from the rosebush to the outdoor fountain for summer loveliness!
