Okay....Typepad did it again. Lost my post again! At least this time I was only partially through it! Gonna try again!
I have a confession.....I haven't had much sewing time lately. You may have already guessed that. What little time I have had, I've been working on some projects for The Quilted Fish. I can't show them yet. But I'm really excited about some stuff with her. I can't wait to show you. But it will have to wait a bit more. Patience, my precious.
So, in the meantime, I may need to have a couple of "non-quilty" posts. Can you bear with me through those? I'm hoping that you may still find some inspiration in the posts....
I'd like to share a couple of fun things with you from my trip to Florida.
While I was in Fort Myers, I went shopping one day with my mom, dad, and Sweet Pea. I went shopping for a dress for the gala I went to, and I bought the dress I was wearing in this blog post. After a full day of shopping, Sweet Pea had asked if she could get some ice cream. We saw a sandwich board on the sidewalk that said "ice cream" and was pointing down this little sidewalk. We walked down that sidewalk and found this adorable shop.
So many good choices! Cupcakes sure are the rage these days! My dad was entranced. We brought 4 cupcakes home for dessert. The owner went in the back and found us some more Caramel Mudslides. It's no wonder I've gained back some of the weight I had lost. :-( Gotta get back on the diet.
The whole shop was adorable. Don't you love the turquoise walls and the polka dots on the menu? I really loved this light fixture over the cupcakes. I wish you could see the furniture they had. The chairs were these really cute clear plastic, modern-looking chairs. And the tables were stainless steel. My dad was talking to the gal behind the counter. She was one of the owners. She told us they had only been open TWO days! Wow! I hope they make a great go of it!
This was a fun day in so many ways. Some good, quality family time, a new dress, and something yummy for the tummy. I am missing my mom and dad as I write this.
Anyway, if you are ever in Fort Myers, you should visit this cute little shop. It's called Grace and Shelly's Cupcakes. (Click the link for locations and information about the shop.) Stop in and show them some love. You won't be sorry. Both the ice cream and the cupcakes are AWESOME!
Until next time,
