Spring Cookies

It is a truly beautiful day, spring is definitely here.  The sun is out, there's a cool breeze, everything is a lush green, and I got my first mosquito bite!  My garden is full of weeds, I am behind in my paperwork, and I am dreaming of summer vacations....yep, spring is here!

But, I have been having fun decorating cookies.  I made these for my husband's birthday a  couple of months ago.  Most of them are replicas of his stained glass creations.  It was fun and he was pleased!

I was making lavender cookies for may daughter and made a few more for my Mom.  It is her 84th birthday today, and, oh yes, Mother's Day is just around the corner.  She was happy!

Happy Birthday, Mom.  By the way, her name is Marilyn and her initials are MOM.  I guess being my Mom was her destiny!

I made these cookies for my nephew's baseball game.  He is on the freshman baseball team and we dropped by to see him play.  They won!  Yippee!  (Even better, we barely missed a major cloudburst, whew!)

My daughter loves lavender, so I made these cookies for her and mailed them 10 days after her birthday.  It's a good thing she's forgiving!  (These were sooo much fun to make!)

Can you tell that I taught myself a new monogramming technique? 

My friend was married last week.  It was one of the most joyous weddings that I have had the pleasure to attend.  When you're in your sixties...the joys of life can truly be appreciated!

I made these for her wedding luncheon.  The smaller cookies on the sticks were for the little girls in attendance.

The larger cookies were for the adults.  I love Hydrangeas and they turned out especially well on these cookies.  So bright and festive.  I can't wait to make more "flower" cookies.  I received a new cookie order the other day and will share them as soon as I figure out what to do!

Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms, Aunts, Grandmas, Great Grandmas, Godmothers, Big Sisters, Step Moms, Best Friends, Child Caregivers, Baby Sitters, and everyone who loves and is loved by a child.  It truly is bliss!

(Now, I want my kids to come home!!!)  Have a great weekend!
