C'mon in! We're having a little party! :)

 The table is all set, c'mon, don't be shy, have a bite to eat.
There's lots of sweet delicacies to enjoy. :)

Amongst all these goodies are the gifts I got from the girls. :)
From Pei Li
I very carefully, removed them from the box. :)
A sweet box of macaroons, beautiful hydrangeas and a tray of the most delicate, delightful desserts. :)
Amazing the details on things so tiny!

From Asuka
Lace cookies, all sealed in individual bags. To keep their freshness, of course! :) (how does she do that???)
Aren't these just super sweet? :) She made the box, too. I like how it's patterned on the outside and the inside.

From Cindy
A strawberry cake, that is pink, my favorite color. :)
Cute, cute, cute cupcakes. Look at the tiny silver sprinkles on them. All precisely placed.
A fruit danish, pain du chocolate and a croissant.
The best part, the tiny, tiny cupcake papers.
The size of them has me completely dumb founded!
And, she folds each crimp by hand. She showed Sans! and I how to do it, but, I'll leave it up to Cindy to be the world supplier of cupcake papers. :)

and some of her tatting! :)
Cindy showed us how she tats, but, it's beyond me, I'll never get that. I can't figure out how she is able to make patterns, it's just little knots, you know?!

From Sans!
More flowers! :) As if she were not already generous enough. She shared some more of her flowers with me. We were supposed to hit Bangkok, but there was too much going on over there. That's where these are from.

and trims! I'm sure I'll find uses for both of these!

Thank you ladies, oh, so much for the precious, precious goodies and for making my stay in Singapore so memorable. It's nice having a little bit from all of you to remember the trip.

While we're at it, let's welcome some new followers to the party as well.

  14. Oooh, I didn't see Asuka's gift. Sooooo fine.

    I attest to Cindy's unfathomable techniques. She can show me a million times and I will still have absolutely no idea how to tat or fold cupcakes liners. If I hadn't met her, I would have thought she's a machine! :)

    Love virtual food, will never gain those pounds from overindulgence

  25. Hey Dale! Came back to see those pastries! I want to make some! Thanks for looking at the finished house on my blog! I have to list it. I have so many other houses I want to make! And looking at blogs like yours give me even more ideas! Who knows, if it doesn't sell then it stays with me! BooHoo! Poor me! LOL!

  26. Hi Dale,
    thank you for joining my blog - that gave me the chance to find yours! I sure like joining your party and will be glad to read new stuff from you after becoming a follower of your blog. I only hope you can excuse my lousy English - I'm totally out of practice speaking and writing in this wonderful language of yours... ;O)

    Greetings from Germany

  27. This was so much fun!!! Thank you all so much for coming to my party! :)

    I'll have to have another party at some point. I really enjoyed all of you visiting, so much!!!

    Feel welcome, put your feet up and stay a while. :)

    I'm so glad you all appreciate the treasures I brought back. I know I do, immensely so and the memories (happy sigh) what can I say, trip of a life time and I'm so fortunate and so grateful. I just feel so honored with the gifts, which are all such treasures.

    Pei Li, lol! ;) I was very careful, they all had a bit of green grass attached and I trimmed that off and then sanded, them so that they could stand upright on their own. And, I didn't ruin them in all of that. :)

    What a lovely party this has been and I'm so tickled and glad that you all attended. Makes my heart swell thinking about it.

    Love you all. :)

  28. Gorgeous gifts, they are very talented ladies.
    I love the scene you created with the gifts.
