I think sprinkles were invented
 just to make us all happy

these sweet little metallics are called dragees
I have never had so much fun as I have had working
on the last chapter of my book
Pure JOY
it's filled with sprinkles and other fun things
ooooodles of beautiful photos
{my book is so filled with photos that there is hardly any room left for the text}
 sprinkles are now all over my kitchen floor
did you know that those round sprinkles are very bouncy?
I think I will be picking them up for years to come

my find of the week was
 this sweet vintage coffee pot thingy

i love it
Are you smiling yet?

It is very hard to find any kind of sprinkles around here. I think I may need to go make some sugar cookies in a bit. I bet your book is pure eye candy for sure. Enjoy your computer-free weekend. Best wishes, Tammy

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

teeeheee....I found myself smiling to myself the other morning in the hallway of school. I was just thinking of something one of my kids had said the day before....I MEANT THAT SMILE!

OH DRAGEES........I JUST TO LOVE to use these with my momma when we baked CUPCAKES! Somehow, one of momma's vanilla cupcakes with REAL buttercream chocolate frosting was INCOMPLETE without dragees...the SILVER ONES! I think that is the only color they had in the 1960s, but look at the gorgeous COLORS YOU HAVE HERE!!!! Oh Koralee, you are a genius. Well my dear, have a fabulous weekend and SEE YOU MONDAY, my last week before SPRING BREAK!!

Crafted by Carly said...

Oh! Sprinkles were definitely invented to spread a little happiness!!! What gorgeous pictures!!!
I have been doing heaps of smiling to myself today. I spent the night in hospital with my husband last (he had chest pains). But he was discharged this morning, and we were told that the pains were just a bad reaction to some allergy pills he's been taking. So, I went from being beside myself with worry last night, to being overjoyed that everything's okay today. Smile, smile, smile!

Great quote...I'm smiling!

fernandflora said...

Hello dear friend! What love photos - as usual and what a splendid coffee pot find! So sorry I haven't been around. Life has been throwing us some curve balls - like bed rest in the hospital awaiting our baby's arrival. Blogs like yours are perfect for providing joy though, so I will be popping around more now that I've got nothing but resting to do! xo

Marilyn Miller said...

Sprinkles do bring smiles. Blessings!

wendy said...

I am smiling at the thought of you having to pick them up for the next year. (tee.hee)

Rosie said...

Hello my sweet,
Well happy trails Sydney dear! I will be praying for your wee baby as she goes forth to spread J o y in another country. Hang in there mama bird...He is in control and will bless His children when they give Him the glory.
Oh dearest, I am sooooo very proud of you. I'm sure you will be both relieved and satisfied when this project is completed. YES please call when the kettle is on and I shall be there with bells on.
....see you soon...Love R said...

You make us smile Koralee. So pretty.

Your little vintage pot is adorable too! Thank you for your sweet comments...:)
Saying a prayer right now for you and your daughter. I am sure your book is heavenly! Soooo excited to see it!
