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.

Wouldn't you just love to take a bite out of this pretty sweet? Makes my mouth water just to think about eating it all up! :)
But you can't!! Once again I give you a little taste of faux food. Not, and let me say it again, not edible.....so sad, isn't it. I would like to eat the frosting right off of the little minis........I could just pop them in my mouth and be done with it.
Wouldn't taste good though, no sugar and certainly no taste. Have you ever had the experience of going into a pastry shop in Europe........ones with the decorated delights that you can't live without???? One bite and you wonder what happened. You see, they don't like sugar like we do here in America. When you see rich, whipped cream on desserts, it's not sweetened to the extent that we sweeter ours. Healthier you say, yes it is but if you got caught off guard, you were in for a big surprise. Needless to say, it doesn't take long to appreciate the perfect flavor without all the sugary goodness.
All this beautiful dessert is served up on a gorgeous, made in England, bone china dessert plate. But wait, there is another surprise......I attached this plate to a glass candle holder and turned it all into a pedestal!!! Yep, that's right and it's easy to do. Simple find a bottom that you like and glue them together. If I can do it, so can you.
See how pretty that looks. I hope you enjoyed my selection for this week. I know that this is the beginning of breast cancer month. Please be sure to check yourself and get checked. This is one thing you don't want to miss. Very important to get early detection and prevention of this ugly disease.
THANK YOU so much Ms. Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for once again working so hard to bring us all together this weekend. Be sure to check out the participants and visit as many as you can. We all love to get visitors and comments too.

Oh my what a beautiful share this evening. That cake looks better than any real cake I ever seen. I am afraid I would have to try it, just to make sure you weren't pulling my leg.

Absolutely exquisite sweetie. Plate and all, such a beautiful share. I thank you for sharing with me tonight. I have so enjoyed my visit.

I pray you are well. I think of you so often. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Yummmy. Only problem is, it made me so hungry I had to head straight for the VERY sweet and quite delicious chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen. Not pink, but very tasty. So i will wish you a happy Pink Saturday as I munch away - I am going to have to do SOOO many exercises and so much boomer and senior gardening to make up for this though! :)

Fleur de Bee said...

Beautiful cakes!! I know just what you mean about sugar in EU! My first time there when I was younger was YUCK! haha! I'll stick to the whipped toppings thanks :)

Happy Pink Saturday!
