~ Treats to Make me Happy all Week ~

Why do I Adore Saturdays?
Farmer's Market

Last Saturday I brought home this yummy

Strawberry-Almond Tart


A wonderful end of Summer bouquet
filled with nature's brilliant colour combinations

I am heading back this Saturday to bring home
another romantic bouquet
{this one made me so happy all week}
and I am going to stop at the
stall for some more
homemade sweets

Hope your Saturday is filled with some beautiful treats
to make you happy all week!

I wish I could go there with you...I would love it! Here, the farmers leave a stash of veggie's in your car seat or at the post office...with a little sign that says.."Take one please!" LOL

Your site is beautiful! This is my first visit. I came to it because I have a little girl named Ava, who is my "little bird", her name means that or like a bird. Sooo, that's why I clicked on ya! haha
Your photos and thoughts are so beautiful, I look forward to seeing more.

You take the most amazing floral photos! I'm actually in a hotel room on my way to pick up my daughter and spend some time on the beach! Lucky for me, I will have an internet connection all but 2 days. I'm so hooked now, I'm afraid I'll miss something! I can't wait to see what you post next! Have a great weekend.

Oh! how delightful! I would love to join you!
p.s.- regarding the pumpkins- I did make them...I just folded the fabric, stitch the sides, gathered the bottoms (and stitched the gathers) stuffed them and tied a ribbon around the stem for closure! Hope that is helpful...if you have any other questions feel free to ask!
