A little Bit About Me

Someplace in Thyme

I have been creating since I was a little girl. I am happy to say that having my own website has opened up a whole new world for me. Trying new mediums is a joy and sometimes a real eye opener. I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Happy Pink Saturday Everyone

A sweet treat for anyone that is watching their waistline. No fat, no calories and no sugar added. I have just created my first faux piece of chocolate cake. This little goodie has been iced and decorated and awaits a special place for display.
Three nice layers of dark chocolate, what more could a girl ask for?! Maybe taste? ha ha

Yep, I am on a tassel role. I can't help myself, I just love these. I keep finding more interesting toppers and even think about these little cuties in my sleep. Someone please help me!! I do believe I will be giving these as gifts to the family this year during the holidays. Now, that's a wonderful excuse to keep making them.

So shabby cute in pink, brown and black.

A little birdie has already moved in and even planted roses. Too bad they are made of paper.
Thank you Beverly for another wonderful pink Saturday. You can find all the participants for this week on Beverly's blog, How Sweet The Sound. Please visit as many blogs as you can, they are all great. Happy Pink Saturday everyone. If you are interested in today's offerings, you can find them on my website, someplace in thyme. Have a great week, be safe, and be happy.

Hi Char...How is it down your way? I know, HOT! Did they get the fire out by Flag? I hope so, it hurts when I know that beautiful country is on fire, even tho I know that some of it is a good thing for the forest!

I dub you the Tassel Queen...they are exquisite and.... it is hard to believe your chocolate cake is FAKE! It was making my mouth water!

P.S. I forgot to tell you. I love that large slice of cake. I think even an insulin diabetic like me would be allowed to have a slice of that.

Love it sweetie...Sherry

Happy Pink Saturday Char Sweetie...
Oh my does this little bird sing to your heart or what? It is just absolutely precious. I think the tassels that you make are just exquisite.

This one says country, and I can feel the wind blowing, hear the little bird singing and see her moving in to the bird house as we speak. I still have yet to make one tassel, but so want to. If I ever get out of this house and can get together, you can teach me for sure.

Thank you for sharing my friend. I pray you are feeling better and that your arm is getting stronger each and every day.

Many hugs and much love sweet friend, Sherry

Cute birdhouse too.
