{real gems}

I found an adorable shop
in my area that sells these
yummy jewels
I believe my life has become
a whole lot more scrumptious
....just in time for
Friday Pretties
{visit Joyce's sweet blog to see more pretties}
When you come right down to it,
the secret of having it all is believing that you do

Good Morning Koralee Sweetie...
Oh my do these cookies ever look good. Yummy in fact, I think I'll try one, I hope you don't mind. That green one is calling me. Oh my goodness, and it is only 6am in the morning.

Looks delish sweetie. Have a beautiful weekend, and thanks for sharing with me this morning. Country hugs, Sherry

It looks like your sweet little plate is floating! I have never had the pleasure of tasting these adorable macarones. They must have a heavenly good bite.
Have a wonderful weekend my friend. Did you already put your lovely shoes and legs in your classroom so they can get used to walking again? Happy first day of school! xxxx

Martina said...

Dearest Koralee - so enjoyed looking at all these pix - this one and the camping ones, so pretty!
I am so sorry your parcel did not arrive! We were there the whole time - really strange and such bad luck! But please don't worry about it. Who knows, maybe it got lost somewhere, there's not much we can do about it. It happened to me last year, i sent a parcel to italy and got it back several months later, totally deranged.
Have a lovely weekend still - it's good to know you :)

Becky said...

Lovely!Have a nice weekend my friend!

Blondie's Journal said...

Those are indeed gems. Your pictures are always so pretty!
I wish there was a place that made and sold lovely macarons and other pretty things where I live. There was a place like that in the city where I went to school, but I don't live there anymore :( Oh well, maybe I will open a place like that on my own :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

How lovely!! I wish there were macarons somewhere near me...but then I would eat them all the time!

Snack time. These little beauties look like pastel colored ice cream sammies. I think I would be in trouble to a sweets shop so close by. Make sure to brush that sweet tooth....

Happy Weekend,

ever so pretty!!! I love this photo!

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

Those look yummy. I love that sweet quote too. I just posted about one of Susan Branch's books myself. I'd say that great minds think alike, but my mind is getting more and more forgetful these days so I can't claim that mine is all that great :-)
Blessings,
Marcia
