Summer Still Lingers

And you know what that means.....HOT weather! It seems like a never ending story. I get a little down during the summer months because I don't like to turn the oven on more than I already have to and it turn means no cupcakes or brownies. As soon as Fall hits I'm back in the baking saddle! Eagerly counting down the days until I smell fresh sweetness wafting through the house and a cuppa just sitting there waiting for me with honey and cream. For now a still life of inspiration will have to be suffice.

Confectionery Cabinet ~ Updated with a finished photo!

I have a love for anything small and sweet so I decided to paint this little cabinet and fill it with my pin toppers (without the pins)!!! I love how it turned out!!!
