** This is one that hit home with me. ~Bakery Joy~ How can you stand in a bakery and not feel warm and cozy.
* Choosing a treat.... looking at everything displayed. It can be a very hard decision!!
* I feel so sorry for the children who have never had this kind of experience. The bakery counter in the supermarket is just NOT the same as going in a little local bakery.
* A lot of the espresso shops have a goodies display. It is a little bit more like a bakery. *
Holly & I Have a dream ** She does want to continue her art studies after graduation with the hope of becoming a Cinemagraphic Sculptor. She wants to help create the
creatures and costumes they use in making movies
like they do at Weta Workshop. But...in addition *** We both love to bake. * One day.... We want to own an Artsy Bakery-Espresso cafe *** We want it to be a place where just
walking in the door makes you feel good.
You can check your troubles outside
and leave the rest of the world behind. *** Besides having wonderful homemade treats, it would be filled with a magical assortment of artist's work displayed and available for sale. *** We want it to have an old world,
Tolkien inspired, Bag-end /Shire Middle Earth atmosphere ** It will seem like there are actually elves baking in the kitchen. *** As you finish brushing the last bit of crumbs from your lap, you will blink and wonder if that was a faerie you just saw fly off with part of someones cinnamon roll. *** At this point....Holly is a sophomore
in high school. We have several more years to collect
and perfect our recipes.
I have worked as a barrista in the past,
so I can whip up marvelous mochas. ** We actually hope to travel for a year after she graduates. We want to visit England and Scotland For some reason it feels like home in my heart, and I have never even been there before! ** We also want to travel around the U.S.A.
in an RV,visiting lots of festivals
and taking art workshops. We love to meet folks and share stories. ** Right now we are just trying to figure out how we will finance it all. My wise Granny Ruth always said... "The money will come" And you know what..... She was always right about that! *** Blessings~LillySue
Holly is taking a ceramics class right now. She liked looking at the pottery.
More pottery we liked!
We met Zeus of ZEE~GLASS (no website, darn!!) He does very cool blown glass pendants. Holly picked out one with a mushroom suspended in it for Christmas...I will hide it away!
I found some more of my FAVORITE body/hand lotion. It is ... Kat's Creek goat milk lotion (clean breeze scent) I love this stuff and bought a bottle at a previous fair. It is all natural ingredients and she makes it herself. The scent is amazing and lasts a long time. You can find it and her other products here at: http://www.katscreek.com/
LillySue owns and operates a home daycare/preschool and loves opening little minds to the art of creativity and friendship.
Holly is an honors High School student who spends all her time in our studio creating magical creatures and beautiful jewelry.
