Love Whale, Whale Love

Oh... Cuuuuuuute shop name, GypsyRabbit, and cuuuuute whale necklace! It's copper enameled. It's totally cute! Remember, the blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived. Wow.

Sarah, aka GypsyRabbit, explains, "Enameling is an ancient art that involves firing powdered glass and metals at high temperatures to fuse them together."

I have a total soft spot for anatomical hearts and where you can see the heart inside the animal. So sweet!

Cupcake Saturday Becomes a Reality

Today I took Ericka up on her invitation to Cupcake Saturday at Letterbox in Uptown Mpls. Sheela makes amazing cupcakes! I had the Mexican Hot Chocolate (above), of elbfoto fame. It was sooo scrumptious! (I admit that I probably couldn't be a food writer because main adjectives are soooo good, soooo delicious, and sooo scrumptious. I don't deny it.)

The frosting was all piled up and it was sooo scrumptious and the cupcake was moist (I really detest that word but it's the only one that fits) and chocolatey and spicy and deliiiicious. Sometime I am going to get 6 and eat 5 in quick succession and savor one. I also have try the Raspberry Lemonade, and Creamsicle, for that matter.

Happy Cupcake Saturday 1 year anniversary!

Please, San Diego Zoo!

I received this in a newsletter from the San Diego Zoo, of which we are members (yes, all the way from Minnesota): Summer Fun and Savings
You're invited join Joan Embery for a members-only special preview of Nighttime Zoo presented by Frazee Paint, on Friday, June 27. Everyone receives a 20% discount on food and beverages throughout the evening, and the first 1,500 members at the premiere of Talamasca, a lively cirque-style show, will receive a free, reusable Zoo shopping bag with valuable coupons. And don't forget to enjoy an evening at the Wild Animal Park this summer—Park at Dark begins June 21.

I'm sorry, but I don't want food or beverages or a circus show or a reusable shopping bag! I just want to hold that baby panda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
