Mother's day surprise..

Look what my daughter made for me! Cool huh?
She taught herself how to make fondant today..and so she created this lovely 3 tiered cake with beautiful flowers on it.
What a surprise. And yummy too. The fondant is made from marshmallows and a 1 lb and a half of confectioners sugar..talk about a sugar high...then a sugar let down..whomp!
But it was good none the less..and so very sweet of her(no pun intended..but hey...that was a good one huh?)

My eyes are about bugged out this evening..made some cute beaded earrings this afternoon for my etsy shop over at http://GardenGooseGifts.Etsy.com and made a set of hair sticks too(for holding long hair into a bun)..those sold immediately after posting..yay! ..that was really nice.
I'll have more pairs of earrings to post tomorrow afternoon.

Well...I'm going to have to find a way to fence off my Ozark Beauty Strawberries in my strawberry bed out back..no sense in having 50 lush strawberry plants and expecting to get a crop from them..when all of the sudden I glance out the window yesterday and what do I see..but one of my little "waddle butts"(that's what I call my ducks sometimes..ha) heading straight for my strawberry patch! eeek. I took off at a run for the patch and tried to shoo it out..it got out of the patch..but I could have sworn that crazy duck was a grinnin' at me..as it had strawberry juice stain all along the side of its beak.ha.
Ahh well...we'll have to get a bit of fencing that it cannot step over.

We had some much needed rain here today..yay. Always nice to get a bit of rain after we have had quite a dry spell here. So nice to walk outdoors afterwards and everything feels and smells so fresh and clean...and I love how the raindrops sparkle on everything.

Well..here is wishing all of you mama's a very "Happy Mother's Day!"

Thanks for joining me in "blogland" tonight.
Have a pleasant evening.
