Good Friday morning everyone...
Happy first day of October!!!
I've got a WONDERFUL treat for you today - literally!!

In my search for some special lollipops for Ella's upcoming 2nd birthday...
I happily discovered Heather from Vintage Confections on Etsy.
(the shoppe name alone lured me in...*wink*)

She creates old-fashioned barley candy, caramels & marshmallows.

Take for instance....

"Tea Time" barley lollipops & "Rose Petal Marshmallows" (made with actual rose water)

I'm so excited to have found Vintage Confections.

(And to top it off...they take custom requests)


So, besides making your mouth water...
and giving you a great resource for your next party...
what else does this mean for you?

Heather has graciously offered to send one of you a dozen of these....

KEEPING IT REAL
I'm probably jealous you'll be winning the candy corn lollipops...but I'm not going to admit it. *wink*
And...
I'm probably driving Heather nuts because I keep sending her messages about more things in her shoppe that I'm finding.
Just last night I stumbled upon a PERFECT flavor choice for one of the baby showers I'm helping to host.
I can hardly contain my excitement!
