happy cupcake day...

Ummm...I meant Happy Valentine's Day!

You will have to forgive me. I am down with the worst flu of my life, so my brain is not functioning quite right. I blame it on the Tamiflu but maybe the 27 hours of straight sleep and fever have something to do with it.

The hubs got up extra early this morning to make me cupcakes. What is it about a cupcake, anyway?? I enjoy them so much more than a piece of cake. It must be their extra bit of cuteness. He made chocolate ones with pink frosting and red sprinkles that he bought all by himself. I was so proud.

*sigh...I love that man*

I did attempt to eat one, I wish I was feeling better so I could have enjoyed it more, but the gesture was so sweet. I am not feeling very creative today, so I am leaving you with the most beautiful cupcake inspiration I have ever seen...courtsey of one of my favorite websites, Style Me Pretty.

They had a feature today on Enjoy Cupcakes, which caters cupcakes for your special occasion. Anytime someone wants to surprise me by having this cute little trailer show up in my backyard...I will not mind one bit.

Wishing you a day filled with happiness and love...and cupcakes!

Hopefully I will be back tomorrow or Wednesday if I can shake this flu! I have a little guest room update and I want to show you, and an Etsy update with lots of painted furniture that is ready to ship!


  1. maybe I could get into camping if cupcakes were involved and twinkle lights.
    Hope you are feeling better soon.
    Rest up, drs orders... eat more cupcakes

  2. Aww, I hope you feel better soon and are able ti enjoy the cupcakes! That was so sweet of hubby.

  21. Love these photos. Is this your little camper? I LOVE it. And what a nice husband you have to make you cupcakes when your not feeling well!!

  22. I sure hope you feel better soon. Sorry you have been sick.

    I got my great tool box in the mail a couple of days ago and LOVE it! What a great color. Thanks, Mary.

    Take care of yourself and enjoy your cupcakes soon.

  23. I have a few vintage envelopes i have been saving for years waiting for inspiration on what to do with them. Now I can't wait to try out the simple decorative idea you gleaned from a reader. Perfect. Oh, and the cute trailer, I am still trying to talk my husband into getting me one. Maybe next valentines. Get well soon.

  24. Happy V-day Mary! I hope you feel better soon!

  25. Oh I do hope you feel better soon... I'm loving your Valentine's Day Traveler's Vignette.

  28. My poor bud...hope you get better soon...cuz I hear a room calling your name ;o)

  29. yuck, yuck, yuck!! I hope you feel better soon. And, I love some cupcakes!

  30. have a cupcake ... all better now?

    I saw this somewhere on the net, can't remember

  31. Get better, Mary! Twenty seven hours of sleep, and less than full enjoyment of a cupcake is a sure sign you've got it bad. That cupcake trailer is the cutest thing I've ever seen.
    I want my own! Trailer, that is. Actually, yes - I also want it filled with chocolate cupcakes, now that you mention it.

  32. Feel better.
    Your Hubby is so sweet, his pet name should be cupcake!

    Ciao Bella!

  33. Oh girl, your not posting...I hope that doesn't mean your still sick :(
    Been thinking of you!
    Hope your all better!
    Love to you

  34. Sorry to hear that you've been feelin' pukie, Mary! I hope you're on the mend. See that li'l white table in front of the cute camper? That is the kitchen table my childhood best friend/still like'a sister had growing up. We spent many a meal swirling on the yellow-cushioned matching eggy chairs. Oh, probably don't want to hear that right now.

    : )
