Afternoon Tea

Last Saturday Cassandra had afternoon tea at her home. She set the table so beautifully! It was a feast for the eyes! She brewed three kinds of tea and mixed up a yummy pink sangria. We ate tea sandwiches, berries, cupcakes and macaroons. All of it was delicious. This girl knows how to throw a proper tea party.
After tea Cassandra got out loads of decorative papers and we all just sat around and visited and created whatever we felt like. I made a little hanging collage for my daughter Lilly's room. I imagined a little shop of sweet delights run by a fairy. Lilly loved it and named her fairy "Ella". xoxo, Molly

Visions of Sugar Plums Already

I know it is early to talk about Christmas and I am not one to rush into the holidays but I just couldn't wait to show you a sneak peak at a project I have been working on for Amy Powers Christmas issue of "Inspired Ideas". I submitted my photos of the project this morning along with a tutorial. I will keep you posted and let you know as soon as the new issue comes out!...
speaking of sugar plum is my very own living sugar plum playing dress up...

I love my girl! xoxo, Molly

A Most Curious Affair

A couple of weeks ago I was checking out at the grocery store and happened to see the Better Homes and Gardens Halloween publication. I was flipping through the pages and saw this...

I was freaking out! I fell in love with this wonderland party. I decided then and there that I must host a wonderland inspired Halloween party for my art group "Pretty and Vintage Things" . I can't wait!

I started right away thinking of a project that we could make together at the gathering. I came up with the idea of an altered cookbook. It will be filled with whimsical collages and delightful recipes of treats one might eat at a the Mad Hatter's tea party. I began my sample cookbook last week and it is coming along nicely...

I made the cover by painting, distressing and drilling holes into a bare wood picture frame.

(this idea was inspired by a project seen in Lisa Kettell's book "Altered Circus")

I will be sure to keep you up to date on my party plans...I can't wait to work on my costume and share it with you! xoxo Molly
