My heart's sweetest desire...

Is Vanilla Stick and their oh so gorgeous handmade chocolate lollipops.

Here is just a small selection to tempt you...
Pink is my favourite colour and white chocolate is Mr Mac's favourite.

Victoria Bouquet Lollipops
Made of strawberry chocolate and white chocolate too.
Each one is unique and decorated with pretty flower patterns.

Venice Lollipops
Wonderful discs of white chocolate individually wrapped and presented in a lovely tin.

Isa Lollipops
This is the perfectly pink version. I love the names too.
Ivory Choco Mallow Lollipops
Soft and sweet... just like me.

Rouge Choco Mallow Lollipops
It's my birthday next month and these would make the best ever party treats or favours (hint hint...).

I love hearts and cakes too...

Today I had a little stall at the Bourne End Community Market to sell my handmade goodies

Here I met two lovely ladies who bake the most delicious cakes...

Suzannah makes pretty cupcakes, fabulous celebration cakes and yummy cake pops too.
I couldn't resist this little cutie... a vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting and topped with a pink heart x

For more details of Suzannah's beautiful creations,

Rosie who organises the event on the second Saturday of each month also bakes a cake or two.
I spotted this one even before she had set up her table.
I simply had to buy it before anyone else saw it too.

As you may already know, I love hearts and cakes too...
But I especially love heart-shaped cakes x

p.s. pink marshmallows are my favourite

My favourite little shop...

In a fabulous little place called Bellagio which is situated on Lake Como in Italy... Our favourite place to spend a holiday x

Whenever and wherever we go, we love to buy a decoration or two for our Christmas tree. It's the most spoilt tree we know.

Going to Italy in May we thought it would be too early to find any decorations...

But we discovered this wonderful shop full of handmade glass gifts and Christmas decorations.

The lovely lady let me take some photos for my blog.
So here I am sharing my secret find with you...

You must visit or maybe you have already been there too...

I Vetri di Bellagio
Via Garibaldi, 41/60
22021 Bellagio

We couldn't resist popping in more than once and were unable to leave without buying a little something each time...

I loved all the cute fused glass trees, stockings, snowflakes, snowmen and nativity characters.

An upside-down Christmas tree draped in delicate glass garlands...

I love these colourful glass balloons too. Take me home...

Arrivederci! See you soon... x

I know it's only June, but I'm already getting into the Christmas mood and plan to make more of my own cute decorations.

Hope you like them...
