~SARA SARA CUPCAKES~

I've had the most wonderful week of "laying low" and even though I've gotten a whole lotta stuff done I sure have missed you all! I've taken a few tiny peeks to see what many of you have been up to... but, pretty much kept my little comments to myself! Betcha didn't know I was lurking about, huh? I promise to stop in and say hello soon!
~My Miss K~
I've been really busy working in my studio, the place where I find pure creative joy. I love transforming both vintage finds and the menagerie of fabric I've collected over the years into keepsakes for the home.
~Miss C, Miss M and My Miss K~
(Friends for life? Maybe!)
If the truth be known there are times when closing my workshop door behind me and calling it 'a day' is difficult. I'm not sure even wild horses could keep me from my passion. By some miracle (Thank you, God!) I've figured out how to get paid while doing exactly what I love...
~Me, Miss K, Miss C, Miss Mary and Miss M~
When I tiptoed into the world of Blogging in January '09 I had no idea what was in store of me. I've met the most amazing women (and some men, too!) and been introduced to more talent than my mind can sometimes take in. What a world! WHAT A WORLD!
~What To Choose?~
Additionally I discovered there is more generosity in Blogland than I ever thought possible. Tomorrow I will be sharing with you two lovely Blogging Gals who have blessed me by their incredible selfless giving. Can't wait to tell you more...
See the pictures above?
Well...they tell a bit of a story. Not too terribly long ago I received a blog comment from Miss Mary B from Texas (Mary loves visiting her favorite Blogs but hasn't as YET started one of her own!). She has family here in Oklahoma and was planning a July vacation. Earlier this summer she stopped to visit the booth space I once had at French Quarter Antiques in Oklahoma City.
~Did Anyone Choose This One?~
I didn't have the pleasure of meeting her then but when she shared her plan for returning before summer's end we agreed to meet up at Sara Sara Cupcakes. SSC is a sweet cupcake shoppe/bakery located near downtown Oklahoma City. It is housed in a turn of the century, two story home that has been transformed into a quaint little eatery. I loved it!
Miss Mary brought two of her grand-girls, Miss C and Miss M and YOU KNOW I had to bring my Miss K with me as well... We had the best time visiting and gobbling up some truly divine cupcakes. This was a real treat for me as I'm still doing my Weight Watchers thingy (yippeeee...down 22 pounds!).
It was wonderful meeting up with Mary and two of her favorite girls. We sat and chatted a couple of hours and enjoyed watching our grand-girls gobble up their treats before snapping a ton of photos as they visited and played together. Childhood is fleeting. My Miss K started 2nd grade today...sniff.

~ Darling Miss M~
~Beautiful Miss C~
~Sweet New Friends~
Blogging has taken me to places I never dreamed I'd go and introduced me to so many lovely people. I'm so grateful for the chance to have met several of you face to face (blessings to you Mary B...loved our visit).
As I shared this latest experience with my computer-genius son, Brandon, he reminded me of something I said to him several years ago when he (and my Mr. AGPMan) were wanting me to sign off on spending those enormously BIG BUCKS on a home computer...
I only had one question...
"What does it do?"
Blessings for a lovely day! Thanks for the much needed break!
Love to you~
