Beyond the Pale


Thinking of Hester: Peacocks, Paris & Cupcakes

It is often around this time of year that we hear the phrase “It’s the thought that counts” bandied about. It usually takes the form of a cringing hand-over of shoddy gifts with seemingly no thought behind them whatsoever.

Here, then, I hope to include some gift ideas (last-minute, I grant you!) into which I have put a lot of thought… but as my revoltingly swingeing pay check currently restricts gift buying to immediate family this year; they must, alas, remain a lasting thought.

I have been inspired by particular people for this series of gift guides, and they are particularly inspiring!

The first in the series is for my dear friend Hester – a lady blessed with immaculate taste, a bawdy sense of humour, and the ability to make people swoon with her notoriously wicked chocolate cupcakes (AKA: “dirty, dirty porn cakes” *cough* – because of the sounds people make when eating them!)

Direct links to items shown, left to right:

1st Row: 1) Tilly Bloom, 2) Jade Rose Designs, 3) Dog Bone Art

2nd Row: 1) Revival House, 2) BeadzNBling, 3) Clutch That

3rd Row: 1) Teacup Design, 2) Mes Peintures, 3) Oak Hollow Primatives

4th Row: 1) Chris Smith 22, 2) Little Voices, 3) Jenny’s Bake Shop

Hope you enjoy. 🙂

Until later, cupcakes,

Miss Nightingale
