This is an assemblage of cake decorations that I put together. I found a wonderful box of old sugar birds and flowers at the Volo Antique Mall. When I was buying these 40(?) year old decorations the cashier told me not to eat them! Really? Can I eat the toy typewriter? I guess I don't look terribly bright.
The doll on the left is by Valerie Weberpal you can check out her other amazing creations at Harvest Moon under my favorites.

Kristen said...

Your collections are absolutely the BEST!! Your house must be like a Collection museum~ how do you get anything done??
I think I would spend my days wandering(maybe even skipping)from collection to collection happily admiring it all :)

Those decorations are hard to eat when they are fresh! They sure look good, though. I kept trying them as a kid and had the same result every time. Luckily, I didn't chip a tooth. Your collage sure brings back memories!

Well, you're just plain mean... it's taken some time for me to reach this harsh conclusion, but the last time I left a comment, you had taunted us with a big, fat, cake.... This time it's cake decorations?! What gives with you?! Are you just sadistic, or whaaaaaa....???? As an added 'insult to injury' category infraction, I had a sip of water in my mouth when I started reading what you had written about the "40 year old decorations and not to eat them...." (as if!) and I SPIT my water all over the keyboard.... I love ya, but you've just GOT to quit torturing me this way ;-)
