try to give this blog much more attention.
My dear followers deserve it.
I'm always trying to find new ways to re-invent the wheel (the pinwheel, that is). Not so easy. I mean, why mess with something that is already so whimsically perfect? But I am always looking for that new shape, new colour, new pattern, and new hubcap (that little thing in the centre that gives it personality). Recently, I was inspired by several Twitter friends to do a sweet little owl themed pinwheel. This one is in Princess Pink and Semi-Sweet Chocolate but Baby Boy Blue would also be a great alternative. Look for them in my Etsy and Artfire shops when I re-open in September.

The recipe is from Brown Eyed Baker and you can find it here. And the sweets didn't end there. I also received four fabulous packages of cocoa and two of sipping chocolate. I love it when I am able to try brands that we don't have here in Canada. The cocoa is called "Sweetridge" and I have two Dark Chocolate and two Peppermint. Perfect! The sipping chocolate is by "Bellagio" and the packaging is gorgeous. Tiffany blue and chocolate brown. I cannot wait to come inside from a cold night of snow fun and cozy up with one of these babies.
Also floating around in the box was a pamphlet from "Nan Rothwell Pottery" located in Faber Virginia. This pottery shop looks so charming, I hope that someday I have the opportunity to visit. I was kind of hoping that the cocoa was an indication of what would be in the final package. I wasn't disappointed. Look at the gorgeous mug and spoon rest that Maya chose for me. I have no doubt in my mind that I will use this everyday and I will particularly appreciate a place for my dirty spoon rather than the sad piece of paper towel I usually use.
