Cookies & Milk

Chocolate Cream Cookies are back in the shop.  Yum.  As far as I'm concerned, cookies need to have chocolate in them (somewhere).  These may be one of my sweetest creations!

 Summer is winding down & I am remembering early June when we were picking Strawberries from the field.  Can't believe the months have flown by so quickly.  Enjoy this Felt Berry Basket with your little ones at their Tea Parties all year long!

Wool Bookmarker - $11.00
 I couldn't resist adding some of these sweeties to the shop! These are made with circles & flowers attached to a grosgrain ribbon. The entire bookmark measures 15" long. 

They are so fun to give to someone - Put in a lunch box; lay next to the coffee maker for a special surprise; tie on top of a package; use as party favors; hang in your car; give to a new reader; or use in your journal!

New Addition...

My daughter & I are always looking for new hair accessories.  Headbands, Barrettes, Ponytail Holders, Clips, Bobby Pins - any fun accessory will do!  So, it was just a matter of time until we started making felt barrettes.  These Wool Ribbon Clips will be launched in the shop in the next couple of weeks.  A precious gift for your little princess or teen or grown up...!  They are simply twisted out of 3 pieces of felt - pieces we have left over from making Play Food.  So, not only are they adorable (handmade in the USA), they are using our scraps (recycling) & saving the trash can from even more little pieces (eco-friendly)! 

These Wool Ribbon Clips are about 4" long x 2" wide & make a sweet statement holding back your hair, sitting on a pony tail, adorning a hat, holding a scarf, decorating a tote bag, or accenting a sweater or wool coat.  The clip is 1 3/4" long & will allow you to be creative with this piece.
(Wool Bow Clips - $9.50 ea.)

Apple Wedges

Where has the summer gone?  There are only 3 weeks left until we begin school here at our house.  I have to say this year, for some reason, I am not really looking forward to the beginning of  our homeschool routine.  But, no matter how much fun the summer has been, it must come to an end - the weather is certainly proving that.  I have spent considerable time coming up with new (overnight) casserole dishes to have ready for hot breakfasts - That excites me - A simple French Toast Casserole with Pecans, an moist Baked Oatmeal Casserole with Granny Smith Apples & a savory Egg Casserole with Cheddar Cheese & Onions. Some sliced bananas & apples on the side & we will have a good start to the day...Oh, don't forget my cup of coffee!!!

These Felt Apple Wedges are a sweet snack to have in the felt food pantry.  A great way to teach the little ones how to show their dolls & stuffed animals how yummy fruits are!  Ha Ha.

Crocheting already...?

(Coffee Cozy - $12.00)

As I sit here crocheting through a nasty rain storm, I am reminded of autumn temperatures & cozy moments sipping my latte'.  Fall will be here before we know it!  Time to plan for the holidays - yikes.

I will be adding a few new colors of Coffee Cup Cozies to the shop soon.  This Speckled Tan Cozy is soft & has a simple bow attached.  A great gift for your coffee buddy or co-worker!

Sunny Side Up?

Sunny Side Eggs & Strawberries
Yum - Breakfast - My favorite meal!

There's no getting around all the smiles that automatically come over my face when I work on these Sunny Side Eggs.  No matter how many I make, they still make me laugh.  I invision the little ones flipping them in a little frying pan & placing them on a plate with a Strawberry Slice garnish for their stuffed animals to enjoy.  How fun is this?!

(2 Sunny Side Eggs, 2 Strawberry Slices - $9.50)

Muffin or Cupcake?

Iced Muffin - Red
A new addition to the Little Bug Market Shop - An Iced Muffin!  My original intention was to create a fluffy cupcake, but that just never worked out the way I invisioned.  As this little creation continued to evolve, I fell in love with it's simplicity.  I hope you enjoy these new Iced Muffins which will come in a silicone baking cup.  They make a great addition to the breakfast food menu...You don't need a special occasion to enjoy something sweet!
