Sunday Favorites and a New Dog!

Thank you to Sweet Chari for hosting Sunday Favorites. 
Please visit her over at Happy to Design.

Since Easter is just around the corner I wanted to post something that had lots of pretty Easter colors. 
I hope you all enjoy Easter!

Yummy for my Tummy???

Scrumptious looking Ice Cream
Sundaes, Brownies, Cupcakes,
Petit Fours and Chocolates!!!

All these goodies are a feast
for the eyes... not the tummies.
That's because they are not real!

My contribution to this weeks
Friday Foodie hosted by Gollum,
are beautiful Faux Food Goodies!

I know that I am cheating a
bit by not showing real food,
but that's better than actually
cheating on my diet!


Cute as cute can be


Don't you just want to stick your
finger into that creamy frosting!?


Little "tea cakes"
or as the French say...
Petit Fours!


Frosted Brownies
to DIE for!!!


It's almost as if you
can "smell" them!

Boxed up and ready to go.


There's more...

Ice Cream and little
frosted sugar cookies.


Cake too!!!


But there always has to be
candies... and chocolate
ones at that!!!


Even candles... for what's a
table setting without candles?

Scented Cupcake Candles

Hershey's Syrup Candle

Hershey's Jar Candle

I just LOVE all my pretty little
"Faux Goodies"

I have them all over the house,  

... and the best part is that
they never make me fat fatter!


Note: As of yesterday there is only (1)
set of Easter candies left.

The mixed Pastel and Chocolate set (top).

I am now taking special orders
for Mothers Day!



This is our newest fur baby.

His name is Buddy.

He had been waiting for me
at the animal shelter.

Buster was feeling lonely after
the recent loss of his friend.

He really missed his Weezie.
I told him I would get him a buddy.

Dear sweet Louise. 

Louise was 15 years old.

Buddy is about 1 year old and
a Lhasa Apso (?).

He loves to run and play.
He is a real sweetheart!


Now please go and visit Chari's

Bless you for choosing a shelter pet! I know Buddy will bring you much happiness. I've found that all the love I give my pets is returned to me tenfold, what a blessing!

Buddy is adorable! Our furry children have always been from the animal shelter/rescue. My husband always calls them our "throw away" dogs because somebody threw them away for us to love. Many happy times are awaiting with your new addition.
