A Cup of Cuteness







































Oh friends, I wish I could meet you at the door of the new cafe, pour you a fresh cup of coffee and give you the most delectable cupcake.  We could have a seat and talk for hours!  I so wish that was true.  I want to share with you today some shots of the cafe.  Friday night we were open for a sneak preview and gave out samples of the goodies.   I almost missed it, having come down with the flu on Thursday, but I was able to attend for a bit - the result of much prayer.  The official opening date is March 12.


















Everywhere you look is cuteness and creativity.  We had pendant lights made out of vintage cake carriers.  I spent some time yesterday drawing on the chalkboards with chalk markers - teacups, cupcakes and curliques - along with the menu of course!







































My window display made the front page of the local newspaper on Friday.  It was like getting asked to the prom by your dream guy!  I'm so happy that customers love it!  The building is a historical building which has been taken care of wonderfully.  The floors are gorgeous!








































The vintage Maytag washing machine always stirs a ton of interest.  People take pictures of it and share their memories of their moms washing with one.  I pray that God will bless the work of many hands as we embark on this adventure.  To see our newest chef/baker go here.  That is an amazing story for another day!
Don't forget to enter the giveaway!
