This weekend I enjoyed a girlfriend getaway. I was able to enjoy a beautiful weekend at the Oregon Coast with my Beach Babe friends. I just had to share a few pictures of what we enjoyed this weekend – don’t drool on the keyboard!
Limoncello Cream Torte – we actually enjoyed this two days in a row – amazing!!! Anyone have a recipe for Limoncello Cream Torte to share? I want it!!
And then there was the yummy Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Pie.
And I didn’t get a picture of the amazing chocolate peanut butter pie we had too! We enjoyed these yummy treats at the Full Circle Cafe in Ocean Park, Washington. There is also a fun yarn shop attached to the cafe where we spent quite a bit of time too!
The title of this post is Pretty Pincushion not Pretty Desserts but it could be named that too!
One of my life philosophies is, if you have to have something, it might as well be pretty. For years I have always used one of those standard, boring red tomato or is it a strawberry shaped pin cushion – you know the one I’m talking about. Not too pretty is it….
Isn’t it cute!? But it looked a little lonely all by itself so I decided it needed a friend and I needed a pretty pin cushion so I made another one. One for Meg and one for me.
I have two costumes to make for Tessa for the school play she is in (She is Miss Minchin in Little Princess) so I am going to enjoy using my pretty pincushion a lot this week!
If you live in the Portland area and want a fun theater experience you might want to check out the Westview High School production of Little Princess. Westview does an amazing job with their productions. The show will run Oct. 22, 23 and 24th. There will even be a tea party on Saturday that you can buy tickets to – enjoy some yummy tea party treats (prepared by me!) and meet some of the characters from the show! A perfect mommy or daddy/daughter date. Boys can come too!
Email me or leave a comment if you’d like more information on getting tickets.
