A Fancy Flours Giveaway

Today is my day off and I've hit the ground running. Up at 5:45 a.m without the alarm, coffee date with my sweetheart at Panera, new tires on the Jeep, and some essential shopping.
I still have groceries to buy, the lawn to mow and a house to clean.
But first I 'm giving you a little something special for the weekend! Fancy Flours was kind enough to send me some fun and beautiful goodies for a giveaway, nearly $100 worth!
 A darling dish towel, colored sugar, co-ordinating goodie bags, adorable cupcake papers and some awesome products to make your next batch of cookies really stand out from the crowd.
They even included a daisy cookie mold like the one I purchased to make these....

So all you have to do is
1. Leave a comment on this post
2. Visit Fancy Flours and tell me which of their gorgeous products you would like to try.(And check out their summer catalog online, they used one of my photos!)
3. Share a link to the giveaway on your blog for another entry.

That's it. Easy. each of those is one entry. I'll be using a random number generator to pick a winner on Wednesday, May 9th and I'll pop the whole kaboodle in the mail that day via priority mail.
Between now and then keep an eye out, I'll also be demonstrating some of the sweet products included in this giveaway:>)
Have a great weekend!

Fancy Country Feed Sack Pillow

Whew! What a week! Busy as a bee and trying to get things done. Spring certainly piles on the chores, and with an already full schedule it has been hard to update.  I am trying to get ready for work, but I took a moment to snap a few pictures of my latest project.
My reproduction feed sack pillow is modeled after a real feed sack, but with a brighter look.
 Maybe an heirloom of the future?
Baby chicks are in our near future,  so it's no surprise that I have had my thoughts focused on the coop.   A little gingham and an envelope back and it's finished and listed now in the shop.
Right now I've got to run!
Coming up soon, a Fancy giveaway from Fancy Flours:>)
I hope the sun is shining and the flowers blooming wherever you are.

More Fun with Fancy Flours

I just can't seem to get enough of Fancy Flours fun cookie molds.  The company liked what I did with the daisy molds so much that they sent me some more fun things to try.  These are actually turkey molds. Now, these would be adorable for Thanksgiving, but what can you do with these beauties for Spring?
 Well Peacocks of course!
 Pretty peacocks for spring parties, brilliant birds for a brightly colored celebration.
Victoria was home for Easter and she had a ball with different color combinations and designs in these cookies. Aren't they beautiful!?
Just melt the colored candy coating, pipe it into the molds in the design you want, add an oreo in the middle and chill! No baking required:>)
Stay tuned, because Fancy Flours sent me a little care package full of springtime fun that I will be giving away.  You'll love the pretty things included and I can't wait to show you....
But first, I have a little more baking to do;>)
