Spiced Horchata


source


Sorry this post is late! I last my original post so yeah, sorry.
I wanted to share this recipe I found through VenusZine. They have a piece on red, white and blue cocktails for the 4th. But this is my favorite because I LOVE horchata. Horchata is known as an "agua fresca" or cold water and in Mexico where my family is from it is made of rice, sometimes with vanilla and always with cinnamon.

Plus this recipe calls for spiced or coconut rum (my FAVES)

Recipe:

½ cup of Horchata (fresh or mixed according to package instructions)

1 ½ ounces of spiced or coconut flavored rum
cinnamon sugar

Rim a glass with cinnamon sugar, add ice, horchata, and rum. Stir. Garnish with a cinnamon stick.

I think I'll be enjoying this cocktail this weekend!

See ya tomorrow!

I thought I would be ready for a small update last week and it turned out I wasn't. But that's okay I've realized last night that I was rushing myself. My samples had barely been made I was racing to update the shop. In the back of my mind I knew that wasn't the best idea. So I still working on some things but I'm setting a more reasonable date to update the shop. I'll be announcing that soon. :)
See ya tomorrow!

Monday Pretties...

Little rosebuds in your hair seems romantic and summery, especially in the colors here. They remind me of being a little girl.

I really want one of these! They seem like the perfect vehicle to drive around in during the summer.

Shop Preview! and Happy Father's Day!

Bikini top!



side detail

haha fingerless gloves! They are definitely an experiment. I'm not sure if I would actually sell them.



I was losing light! So I snapped this quickly because I wanted to share. I'm still working on some bottoms I was hoping I'd have them finished but life got in the way. I think I'll slowly add the swimsuits to the shop some time next week.

Me and my Dad

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!! to all the Dad's out there. Have a Beautiful Weekend everyone!

"Hope" is the thing with feathers

254

"Hope" is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I've heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

Emily Dickinson



*See ya tomorrow *

"Little" Messes



Ah so this is what I spent a good part of my day dealing with yesterday. Lose powder all of the carpet and cd case. Not one bit on his toys! How did little houdini do this? And so quickly too! I wasn't even upset either because the powder was old and the first thing he said when I saw this was "sowree". Well at least I vacuuming outta the way? :)

*Sigh* So without Tell Your Story to occupy my time, I've found myself re-inspired to crochet some things. I did a few baby projects that were gifts but I haven't made anything for the shop in some time. :( I've already made 1 sample for Blythe dolls. I'll be making one later today and I'll probably have another before the end of the week! This is exciting! My mom has made some baby blankets and afghans for the shop I just really need to photograph them! I'm bad when it it comes to that :< So I should have some type of update for the shop by the end of the week! Fingers-crossed .
The above pictures are just for some inspiration. But I do hope to make amigurumi soon!

See ya tomorrow!

Magazines!











My Sister is the best! She knows I love magazines! So she picked some up for me while she was outta the country. I haven't looked through them all yet. I'm taking my time with them. Sigh...I wish I could get magazines from other countries all of the time! But they are sooo expensive :(

See ya tomorrow,

Tell Your Story Prt10













Awww...This is the last update for Tell your Story! It was a six week class but it really feels like it flew by! I'll miss the daily prompts. But there is a little bight side. There were prompts for making your own journals so I'll be working on those now. But I probably won't start that till next week.

See ya tomorrow,
