Be Positive

Finished the third block of my Golden Rules of Attitudes from the Be Attitude pattern. This one I think is my favorite - at least for now. The pattern calls for a cherry on top of the cupcake, but I just could not bring myself to put a red cherry on my pastel quilt...so I have a pink cherry. I used a pink button turned upside down so that it would be smooth and curve down towards the cupcake rather than stand out so much. I do love the attitude of this ant hauling away that cupcake!

I also did a little "thrifting" this weekend and came across this decorative plate that is just perfect for my kitchen, at least it will be when we get the walls painted. The green check border is the color I plan to paint the walls. I was so pleased when I got the plate home and compared it to my paint sample! It is just perfect with my white cabinets, golden countertops and the red accents I want to use. This is a signed Bob Timberlake plate and on the back of the plate is his signature and a message to the "Hooks" family. I personally do not know the Hooks family, but I sure am glad I came across their plate!

I think the pink cherry looks like a M&M on top of the cupcake, which would also be nice.

Cute Block! Like you, I love that ant's attitude. A pink cherry is just a red cherry that's not ripe yet LOL!

The button is perfect. And it does look like an M&M. They are good on top of cup cakes too. Yummm!
