Royal Wedding Donut

The upcoming royal wedding of William and Kate has produced a lot of interesting stuff. From a fridge to nail decals to the classic china plates, don't they deserve a donut too?

Dunkin' Donuts has revealed plans for a "Royal Wedding Donut", a heart-shaped donut filled with red jelly and drizzled with chocolate. This royal treat will be available the week of April 24-29.  I hope to be eating these at my late-night royal wedding watch party in lieu of tea and crumpets.

The Dallas Flea

I'm looking forward to attending the Dallas Flea for the first time on Saturday!

I've only been to a couple of flea markets before but I've always have so much fun at them. If this flier by Southern Fried Paper is any indication of the flea's cuteness, then I'm sure it will be a winner. 

What's your favorite flea market find?

Searching for Billy Buttons

I really enjoy having fresh flowers at home but it be pricey to maintain. My latest DIY project is to create a faux flower arrangement made up of dried flowers. Of course the flower that strikes my fancy is uncommon and I'm having a tough time finding them. 
Crasperia, Billy Balls, Billy Buttons, whatever silly name you want to call them, these yellow ball flowers are so quirky and fun!

Let me know if you know of a place where I can find them!
