My Purple and Pink morning at The Corner Bakery in Decatur, AL

On my quest for coffee this morning in Decatur, AL…. I stumbled upon the cutest bakery! Not only do they frost their famous cupcakes fresh, right in front of you, they also have BEAUTIFUL jewelry dripping from every corner. They said “we frost your cupcakes and you can frost yourself with jewelry!” Haha.

I had to buy a strawberry cupcake, coffee, and a little bit of jewelry with my Birthday money! 😉 thanks Mom Lalo!

My Doll House! (#2 Cozy Baby Room/Bunk-Bed Room)

This room is really a mixture of everything!! The crib and rocking chair are part of a real doll house furniture set (very detailed… really beautiful… it’s one of my favorite pieces).  The bunk bed in the back is from an old doll house set I had when I was a baby. It’s “kid friendly” furniture… and was very played with. The pink separation screen is from an earring holder I got from Clare’s!

The “clock” on the back wall is from one of my FAVORITE watches I had when I was in 7th grade! I’m so happy that I got to recycle something that I loved so much that I could never throw it away.  The diamond Dalmatian is from a pin my mom had in the 80’s!  The flip flops are from a charm bracelet! And the rocking chair is something my sweet dad made for me in his workshop.

See the telephone?… that’s a push-pin!

If I lived in this house I would sleep in this bed! (I was always the one that ran for the TOP bunk on Camp Greystone move-in day!) The picture on the wall is from a “memory” game I had when I was little.

My Doll House!! (#1-The Play Room)

I’ve given new life to my doll house!

It’s certainly not a professional/serious doll house like the pros decorate…. but it’s unique and different. I call it a “Borrowers” house! There is a little bit of everything in this tiny home.

Many of the decorations come from things around my house like: old jewelry, game pieces, buttons, pins, hallmark cards, key chain charms, Christmas ornaments, stickers, stamps, Mommy’s sample fabrics…etc.

The Play Room

The tennis ball is from a bracelet I had when I was little. The Mr.Potato Head is a mini Christmas ornament. The Hello Kitty is a pencil topper. The Toy Box is made out of a tiny Altoids Tin.  The box is filled with necklace charms, earrings, beads, “Worry Dolls” and “off brand” polly pockets.
