A Rose Chic Friend!

Don't you just love receiving presents 
~just because~.
My heart fluffed up with delight when I opened this sweet package from Lorena, over at
she sent me the prettiest hand painted rose O,
it found a home in my Shabby pink kitchen...
 She also included a handmade rose clay magnet that looks so cute on my Shabby framed tin...
Ohhhh, I just love these pretty in pink clay rose magnets! 
A perfect way to dress up any note!
You can find these one of a kind clay roses in Lorena's Etsy Shop
Thank you sweet friend!
While we are in my kitchen lets have a bite of the tasty chocolate cake I whipped up this week!
I rarely take time to bake up cakes from scratch. I use the box mixes from the store.  However, I did spice up my cake mix!
Make it Fabulous for Less Tip~ When your box cake mix says to add water, leave a little room in the water part to add your favorite flavored creamer ( I just used a couple of teaspoons). For this chocolate cake I used my Caramel Cream Delight! Yummy!
 I crafted up these cute pink cupcake tags for my booth, (I coffee stain all my booth tags) the cupcakes came out so adorable i decided to keep one for myself and dress up my cake plate!
Well my sweet friends, I am off to cruise and see some more yummy pinks! Thank you to our lovely pink hostess Beverly,
for hosting Pink Saturday!
 Have a beautiful and blessed day!


  1. Good Morning Olivia,
    What a lovely initial gift and so pretty with the pink rose.
    Sweet cupcake tags too!


  2. Hi Olivia!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I would love to see what you come up with for your ceiling medallion. I'm following you now so I will check back often to see what you are up to.

    Your gifts were really wonderful. I also love ceramic roses. I have a friend who does them, Cindy at "Angel Heart Designs." She gave me a tutorial on how to do them. I haven't tried it yet, but hopefully soon!

    Have a terrific pink weekend!
