berry delightful....




just one of my sweet projects that fill the pages of my book

 image from my book Everything Goes with Ice Cream
you can also take a wee peek inside the book  here 



I feel so blessed that
my friend Dagmar from studio d decided to
make some of my berries adding her own special touches
I love the little crochet toppers and buttons she added
she sent me over this sweet image and I just had to share the joy

thank you Dagmar

As a lifelong crafter, I totally agree with you - handmade IS best.. in all instances. When you make something, you put your heart and soul into it.

Sweet one! I had to come to see you again. It is about 10:00am here on Sunday, the sun is shining brightly in my home, and I picked up your book again to enjoy the colors and recipes. The one today that got my attention was the simple idea of stuffing fresh raspberries with chocolate chips. What a melt-in-your-mouth treat that I will be making very soon!

LOVE LOVE LOVE your book. I so hope you get your copies soon! Have a wonderful day and great week in the classroom! Anita
