Nice cold gelato and candy......Thats what I'm in the mood for....











Well....It is summer here and it has been warm. The kids love to go to the Powells sweet shop for some cold gelato and a nice candy pick. I thought I would share my things for my next candy shop. I have so many projects started and just not enough time. Yes, I made all the trays of gelato and what a job it was but the result was exactly what I wanted. I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Mine has been good. When I can get back to this project it will be called "The Pink Penguin" gelato and candy shoppe. Also wanted to mention the striped candy bag and bag of chocolates with the pink bow were made by Cathy McGhee at the Fabulous Farmhouse. If you have never been to her website you must. http://www.thefabulousfarmhouse.com/
Wondeful things! Mini hugs!

So pleased you are having warm weather, we 'might' reach 11C today, I know it's winter but I would prefer it to be a bit warmer!!
