Things that make a rainy Sunday special.

It's been raining for most of the night and I've woken up to grey skies, a cold wind and rain. But, it's a holiday weekend and I'm gonna enjoy it!

I had a leisurely breakfast, a hot shower, and finished with a spray of my favourite Chanel perfume, guaranteed to keep me feeling good.

I've had a whim to make cupcakes. Blame 'Mary Beth' often has them on her blog although she tends to have the decorative kind not the calorific kind

These little darlings are orange flavour
with a chocolate bottom. I just put a square of really dark chocolate in the case along with the mix. I've topped them with orange icing and grated chocolate. yum yum!

I know they will disappear overnight when the 16 year old fridge raider comes home!

For more indulgence with less calories I've spent the afternoon making fabric roses. Two kinds. one with stitching and one with glue. ( Don't you just love a glue gun-- so fast!!)
I made this pretty cuff yesterday and finished it today with a dupoin silk rose and three little pearls. I have a whole load more roses to hand finish later.
The rain has stopped and tomorrows weather is looking promising, Hurray!
Hope you all had a good weekend!

Hi Angela, Your cupcakes sound very mouth-wathering! I love the taste of orange flavour and the mix with dark chocolate is just perfect and very yummy!
Your fabric roses are gorgeous and I love your pretty cuff as well!
Hopefully you'll have lovely weather tomorrow. Over here it had been cold but nice today. We are supposed to get rain tomorrow though.
Have a wonderful week!
