Dear Koralee,sorry I have not popped in for a while,things have been very hectic, me feet have not touched the ground.When I saw this post was up,I hopped for joy, I knew that I could depend upon having my fevered brow soothed by the colour's and word's contained within. I was not wrong safron yellow and duck egg blue two of the sweetest colours ever brought together! Have a lovey break. Hugs, Sharon xxxx

Absolutely beautiful cupcakes!! decorated perfectly! xxx

sarah-jane down the lane said...

Oh Koralee you always hit just the right note! Your last two posts are perfect ( as always ) I have been adding a pop og yellow to all my outfits for the last two weeks, it just feels so right at the moment, and lo and behold here you are extolling the virtues of turmeric and yellow sugar coralettes!

It struck me that you should change your "followers" to "Koralettes" I should very much like to be a Koralette!

Happy weekend to you lovely,

Love Sarah x
