Star Girls and White Punks

The white punks to the left by Payton Jett are the basis of my custom request for all cream ones that are on their way to me. Just envision these already pretty punkins, but completely in cream...vines, stem, everything. I expect them to look quite sophisticated.

Black and white birds are in the same box and I can hardly wait to hold them! I have several in exotic glass color mixes, but these are purely black birds and totally white birds. I'm thinking....ribbon would work with these.

Marianna Boylan of StarGirlJoolz on Etsy is one of my most loyal commenters on my blog and has been
kind enough to award me the Brillante Weblog award, which I must honor by passing on to my favorite blogs.

So, here goes:

1. Of course, being a faithful cupcake lover, I have to keep in touch with the daily entries of Cupcakes Take the Cake blog. Allison, Nichelle and Rachel scour the cupcake world in every category possible to keep us all aware of worldwide cupcake events and new products related in any form or fashion to real, edible cuppies.

2. Bella Sinclair Doodlespot. Bella is an illustrator who claims she is "just a girl with a pencil" but every week she displays the sweetest works that in an instant
pull me out of my everyday world and into a whimsical one that just relaxes me and brings a smile.

3. The Cookie Sheet. More drawings from Donna Childree Gotlib aka CookieSunshine on Etsy. Donna's art feels very free to me and light and sweet. Some are in pencil, others in color and are accompanied by lovely original poems.

4. Building A Bakery from Kari Haskell of the Retro Bakery cupcake shop in Las Vegas. Kari's sassy wit and her USE of capital LETters for emphasis in entries regarding the constant juggle of family and business life just crack me up, keep me laughing and keep me coming back for more!

5. My Lily Eden. Sweet photos of the lovely little Lily often grace these pages leading to LemonTreeStudio paper goodies on Etsy and has a weekly Friday freebie! This is a great place for featuring loads of fellow artists so it's not only fun reading but shopping as well.

6. The above led me to On The Dot Creations an Etsy seller of computer wallpaper designs whose blog has daily displays of all kinds of finds from Etsy (mostly), has contests quite often along with brain puzzlers that are fun challenges and just about anything you can think of that has dots!

7. All Things Cupcake has near daily cupcake related finds. She really digs deep to find the good stuff!

Thanks to all of you for the news and entertainment and thanks again to you, Marianna.

Awwww, I'm so touched by your sweet words. Thank you! You definitely deserve this award. Your passion for glass and beads is wonderfully contagious.

These little white beauties are so beautiful with their curly green vines! And I'm excited you're getting more birdies.
