my new adventure! I love baking & is a great way to be creative when I'm not working.

I've been baking lavender cookies for awhile but just started baking with pink roses!

they are so beautiful and make you feel pretty just eating them:) I brought some to an art show for some friends and to a few parties and people have been giving me orders ever since!!

I LOVE THE 80's!!!!!!!!!!!!  "  Patrick Kelly  became the first American & first  black designer to be voted into the prestigious Chamber Syndicale du Pret-a-Porter des Couturiers et des Createurs se Mode ,the French fashion industry association &standards organiztion. his wok pushed racial & cultural boundaries with golliwog logos, Aunt Jemima bandana dresses, and black baby doll brooches. kelly's brilliant vision and career were cut short by AIDS,to which he succumbed in 1990."
