The Doors Part II


 Aloha!

Last July I did a post that featured several beautiful doors from around the world and I titled it "The Doors" for a fun play on words.  Yes, I love the band The Doors!  Anyway, I thought it was cute and so I've decided to continue the series with a Part II, except with lots more photos!

I don't know about you but I've fallen completely in love with so many European doors throughout my travels!  In fact (note to self!) I should do a post with my personal photographs since I have a lot of pictures of doors!  Soon, I promise!  I am confident that there is no end to the beautiful doors one can find around the world, all of them the expressions of a creative individual, so that's why I'll continue this series, there will always be more doors to sigh and drool over, yay!

So sit back and enjoy these incredible architectural pieces of art, some just might inspire you to make your front door a statement to the neighborhood! ;)

Easter Desserts and Candy



Happy Easter!


Yummmm... I've gotta admit, today I will be bad, I will eat candy like a child and I don't even like candy all that much! Except for lots of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs, Whoppers Malted Robin Eggs, Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Bunnies and, though they may taste like nothing but sugar fluff, Peeps!


Anyway, here are a few Easter dessert and candy images I've gathered, all of them look yummy! All it takes is a little creativity, take a basic recipe and let your imagination run! You can get started by checking out the following links for some more ideas and recipes...

Mmmm Easter brittle!

Rice Krispies Eggs!  Just form them with some plastic wrap!

Ok, this is not a candy or cupcake, but these "Chicks on Stick" (HAHA!!) found on Pinterest are so adorable!- Cherry Tomatoes and Mini Mozzarella's!  I'd use bits of carrot for the lips and peppercorns for the eyes. 

These little marshmallow chicks are oh so cute! (via Living Locurto)
