Beauty in the Ordinary

This is not about being brilliant, or extraordinary, it's not about wanting to be famous, or making headlines, or trying to impress...this about sharing a 'gift' each day with the world...to lift the spirit of people when they read this blog, to show them the beauty in the ordinary.
"And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." Raold Dahl

  3. I forgot to add..I love the name 'Harry'...really wanted to call Lindsay, Harriet, just so I could call her Harry...but you have met Rudy V., so you know how far that idea went!

  4. Hehehhehe!! I noticed that his arms are up over his head -- like he's saying "Yay, I win!!" Or "Yeah, I'm diggin' these super-awesome cupcakes!!" They DO look divine :-)

  6. ...you know he actually likes to sleep like this most of the time!
    yep he's definitely a winner!
    the butterflies came from an etsy site, sorry I don't know the name, I think if you google 'edible butterflies etsy' you will find the source...if not I'll check with Trisha as to where she ordered them...they are truly magical!
