the little details


thank you, thank you for all the birthday love and good wishes. you are too too kind. benji and i lapped it up, right along with his 3 tier vanilla buttercream cake. thank goodness it turned out. mmm. yes, we've indulged in a lot of sweetness and sugar these past few days. more on the cake-a-thon later. for now i wanted to answer some questions i received about benji's birthday celebration.

• the goldfish jars are small plastic containers from Michael's craft.
• the donuts were from daylight donuts. i will take you there if you visit me.
• the pinwheels can be created with square scrapbook paper, pins & straws. diy.
• the pinwheel vases held raw pinto beans, i love using my food storage.
• a rolled up magazine page works as a great funnel for said beans and goldfish.
• benji's party hat came from a darling girl at little one boutique.


p.s. if you're in the need for silver, black or white pins (like the ones seen here), let me know. i have extras to sell. they would be great for a fancy cork board.

Okay so I'm a blog stocker. hehe. I know you don't know me, but I recently found your blog and I am loving it! I love all the quotes! Love the one by Dr. Seuss. I needed to hear that today. :) Hope you don't mind me stopping by every now and then. :) Keep up the good work! amber

This is the best reason to blog. Share your good ideas with us all. Plus, in a few years, Benj will look at it and see what a great childhood he had!!!

Lucky boy.
