Oh my gosh, look who is 6 years old!!

I can't believe it! My baby girl is 6 years old today! Happy and proud of course but missing those baby days:)
Here is a shot of her at school. The class had just returned from recess, can you tell by the hair? LOL. Isabel wanted to take cupcakes on her birthday. I have a love/hate relationship with cupcakes, lol.
I am determined to master this thing, even if it makes me crazy!
I made them for my son's birthday and followed a completely homemade recipe from Martha Stewart, well they tasted awesome but looked like he!!.
My bug decorated cupcakes looked nothing like hers. I was so mad.
So this time, for Isabel's birthday I decided to make a recipe for iciing and use those fancy decorating tips, well that would have been great if the iciing would have actually been thick.
It almost drained right through the decorating bag, lol. Not the thickness that I had hoped for at all but at least it stayed on the cupcake.
So I will be making alot of cupcakes, trying to get the consistency of the iciing right. Crazed and determined, lol. I mean come on, these tiny things can't be that difficult, right?? :)
We will be going somewhere super fun this weekend to celebrate her birthday more. She is not sure where she wants to go yet so I will let you know soon:)

~Tramonto dell annata~

Finally, outdoor pictures! It was a LONG winter, ha! I just listed this darling Southern Vintage set for the VendeMia *Mille Fiore* launch. You can check out my listing by clicking here. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out, so sweet and southern vintage.
Isabel desperately wants a fun picture of her in the set for my blog, so I am posting this one for my girl! :)
