I enjoy a periodical called “BAKE”.
The publication features a theme. The images are eye candy. The pages inspire me to grab my mixing spoon and “bake it pretty”.
. . . on the Saturday before Mother’s Day . . . I spied this at our Fred Meyer in the magazine section.
The French Issue.
. . . parfait!
. . . dreamy.
. . . every page.
. . . without a second thought . . . into the cart it went. on the drive home all I could do is think about getting my chores finished so I could sit down with an afternoon tea and dive into it.
. . . trace the calligraphy and play with my new logos.
. . . share it with you, as I draw it into my on line adventure.
. . . and speaking of this on line adventure.
When I first started blogging, I wanted a creative form of expression. Then . . . I seemed to get caught up in “the numbers game”. While caught up in the numbers and dabbling in monetizing . . . something much richer and more beautiful occurred.
My six year online adventure has connected me with the dearest, kindest, funniest, brilliant and most creative people. While I am blessed with the most amazingly beautiful and wonderful family and friends in my “real life”, I also feel gifted in my blog life.
You fuel me in the morning, giving me a kick start to my every day steps.
You are here . . . in times when you may think that I am not there. You care. You wonder if I am alright. You wonder where I’ve been.
You know who you are.
I am there. I may not always speak. I spend most of my moments wrapping your words and images around me.
. . . and I am so grateful to be here today with a serving of French bread. ( No that’s not me . . . it’s another beautiful French fille, this time . . .
touring twirling me Patisserie!)
I promise to be more visible at your places in the days to come.

♥ The French spatulas were in my Mother’s Day box from Jay and Camille. They were purchased at Sur La Table. You will find them on line here.
♥ . . . and dear “BAKE”, thank your for letting me dream and virtually play inside your amazing images. Seriously, I wish I could paint them!
