Love the cupcake papers. I have quite a few too as I use them as skirts for my spun head gals...nothing happier than a cute cupcake paper (even better if it has a cupcake in it tho!)

Where do you find all these lovely things? Your cupcake papers remind me of a video I just stumbled onto yesterday...an artist who made a wonderful exhibit of 10,000 cupcakes! I hope the linky worked. Her name is Leah Foster.

Maria said...

I love this idea, Koralee! All because of you, I have a similar jar on my shelf in the dining room.
Oh... I spy a crochet doily on top of yours! Another sweet idea! My old flour jar will look so much better with a lacy "hat" on!
My snow is finally gone; the weather has been nice. We did have little "cupfuls" here and there until yesterday though!
I'm glad God decided it shouldn't be winter just yet!
Wishing you a wonderful TGIF kind of Friday!
God bless you dear ♥

THE COLORS HERE wake me up and make me even HAPPIER than before! OH DEAREST...yes, I woke up with a SORE THROAT AGAIN, but I had to go in because I got a sub to take my place for the day due to some important reading tests I had to administer before CONFERENCES!! Yes, we need to slow down....and what does not get done, has to wait. We need to rest!

Oh I am so happily busy in my shop! I HOPE your tags get there soon my dear! LOVE TO YOU SWEET ONE, Anita

Rosie said...

How I L O V E pretty cupcake papers! Just picked up some pretty vintage looking ones up that have a matching gift box...so cute. Now I just have to find the time to bake a couple of cookies to go in them.
You can drop off the "stuff" any time. Would you like to meet for a quick cup of tea?? Let me know. Have a lovely weekend!...hugs...R
