Cookie Spoons

I got a spoon shaped cookie cutter as a gift recently and since I just absolutely LOVE coffee, OK lets be honest, in a CANNOT LIVE WITHOUT way, I thought how nice wouldn't it be to have just a little something sweet to go with my coffee and that would look nice as well, and there you go; cookie spoons it is!!

I really like them, they make me smile and obviously pose endless possibilities of how to decorate them, and yes I already made one with a Xmas tree on it but I ate it immediately so as not to leave any proof that I start Xmas too early around here... ;D But can't you just imagine a hot cup of spicy gl├╝hwein and a Xmas tree decorated cookie spoon to go with it?? Well I can.... YUM!!

And I am really happy to say I decorated these this morning and lo and behold out of the blue I was asked to have them ready by the afternoon so in a box and off they went, I really hope the recipient likes them as much as I do : )

Halloween Hilariousness


OK, I could try and explain these cookies to you, but I won't, because this just is one of those unexplainable things, I mean how can you explain why you felt it necessary to make Halloween ornaments and Halloween underwear... I mean really... ;D But I will say this much, the recipient of these cookies shares my utterly insane sense of humour and obviously also my love of Xmas, and since I just COULD not decorate Xmas cookies just yet, I opted for "Halloween trees and ornaments".... ; ) It's in the same category as calling my outdoor fairy lights "autumn lights" instead of Xmas lights... Anyway, I had lots of fun making them, because seriously who doesn't smile when they see bats and cats on lin♥gerie... ; )


Good night, sleep tight lovelies, 
Don't let the bed bugs bite.

... And if they do
Then take your shoe
And knock 'em 'til
They're black and blue!

Haunted House


Ok, I have to admit I all of a sudden, got hit by a "I just have to make a Halloween House stat" - lightning bolt, and there you have it ;D Had all kinds of fun making it, it's been a while since I "built" a house, so obviously burned fingers from the hot sugar were involved... But hey, Xmas is here soon so better get my house building up-to-date sooner than later!! Even if it's a "Haunted House" it sure does make me smile every time I look at it, my favourite detail (obviously...) is the chandelier in the back : )


Have a Wonderful Day lovelies!!

Halloween Cookies


Time for some Halloween cookies methinks, and not to seem too morbid but it felt strangely appropriate to decorate R.I.P. cookies today. Have I been thinking of Steve Jobs today? Indeed I have, and since it could not have escaped you how much I just adore Apple products because of their sleek and elegant design and obviously mostly for their superior functionality, it really saddens me that the world has lost one of its innovative geniuses. 

As you all know there are some brilliant quotes and speeches by Mr. Jobs out there, and I leave you with my favourite from his Stanford speech;  

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
