Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes, Peter Pan Collars and Perfect Weather!

Such beautiful weather this weekend in Cornwall! Glorious sunshine all round.

Much fun had baking these cute little cakes...yes cakes. It's so easy! You just make a basic cupcake recipe, bake in the oven for 25 mins on 190 degrees, let them cool and decorate - voila! The babes just loved them!

Been working on some new designs this weekend, some structured Peter Pan detachable collars and some summery jersey turban style headbands. Can't wait to get then in the shop!

And finally what a superb sunny weekend we've had! Hanging in the garden, BBQ's, paddling pools and a lovely sunny pub lunch with my in-laws (and amazingly well behaved children!).

Mary had a little lamb - bobbly lamb bonnet!

Lovely of my bestest friends had a baby boy this week. I cannot wait to meet the little man! In anticipation I have made him a bobbly lamb bonnet. My first one, and I think its super cute - I'm onto making one for Edie Rose now!

My new favorite breakfast! Poached egg on toast with avocado - DELicious!

Big Chunky Minty Green Cowl. Ok I know is May and therefore we should be wearing nice tea dresses and sandals....but...have you seen the weather. Grey, cold, wet. Definitely time for a cowl!

Minty Fresh

A busy old week with lots of lovely things...a girly dinner sans infants, a baby shower with lovely ladies, poorly babes (again!) NOT LOVELY - poor little dears - but part of the busy week none the less, lots of crochet (happy days) and much minty-ness (its going to be a word, I'm convinced of it!).

The lovely Janice from Bikbib and Roro has created a lovely post with a minty treasury created by Lumi :)

I made minty macaroons for my lovely friend poppy's baby shower - I'm so excited for her, can't wait to meet her imminent arrival!!

Finally, Lumi Mint Clutch features in this wonderful post over on LatikaSoap's blog - I am so into her soaps right now - they are so much fun!!

P.s. Another minty point - I cannot wait to show you the minty cowl I've been working on its chunky and minty and FRESH....stay tuned!
