Pretty Flowers

A lovely vintage flower picture. Oh, how I adore these old pictures of roses and hydrangeas.

This is one of the poinsettias I had from Christmas. It still looks gorgeous. Isn't it the most adorable poinsettia? And it has barely dropped a leaf.

One of my many needlepoint cushions. Just because I love it.

A little vintage needlepoint lipstick case Mother gave me so many years ago and for whatever reason it sits in the drawer in the kitchen.

A little painted tin for the porch I picked up thrifting.

And a super crappy picture of cupcakes made last night and almost gone this morning. Which brings me to this week's question, how many cupcakes in one day are too many? My great friend Clara told me if you have to ask it is too many. We decided three is quite enough for one day. What do you think? Five too many? Just for the record, I had three yesterday, one of which, was not iced.

If it wasn't iced it probably doesn't count does it? that's just testing to make sure the sponge is ok.
Love the tin, that's very pretty.
Take care.

I dont think it matters - they are only small - in fact I think probably ten make a decent sized slice of cake !!

That poinsettia is beyond gorgeous. If I had one that looked like that, I might not feel as if I had to kill it on purpose. I face is red just saying that. LOL!

Too many cupcakes in a day? I have no idea, but I'd love to find out.

Um, I think by your guidelines I ALWAYS eat too many cupcakes in a day! Love your pictures today :)
