Sweet tooth...

Here is my zero calorie offering. I've been finding some fun vintage sweet-related items lately that I thought I'd share. These two vintage candy boxes make me smile. Happy Moments chocolates. Cute!
She's just plain sweet, don't ya think?!
Then I came across this Wilton cake decorating year book. I love it! Paging through it I thought of the recent trend in these blog "circles" of vintage cupcake picks, ballerinas and other party goods. I thought it was really fun to see how these items were used 30 years ago.



Couldn't resist showing you these yummy looking fabric chairs from the Brocade design blog. Don't they look like they're frosted?! Have a delectable day!

I cannot believe my eyes...the angel. While growing up my mother bought each of us a new ornament each year(pretty expensive with 10 children. In 1969 all the girls got one of these angels. It is put on my tree each year. Mine is pink. Great find.

My aunt made me one of those Barbie doll cakes a million and a half years ago for my birthday. I still think about that cake every now and then. Thanks for sharing!

OMG!!! I did'nt know that there was such a thing called Keeley's candies. This is my daughters name and it is even spelled the same. She hates that when ever we look for things with names on them she can never find her name and now I know that there is a candy company with her name on it.I will have to keep a look out for this candy box. That is so cool!

XOXO
