Tasty Treats #Folksy

Today we have some delicious treats in store for you. They aren`t exactly edible but nontheless are rather tasty looking. Some are so exquisitely done that you want to eat them. Not advisable though as you will see when you click on the pictures to discover more.
I got the idea for this blog as the Folksy front page had food related crafts on it. Some of these were taken from that page but others came from searches, putting in things like, cake, chocolate, biscuits and sweets.
Amazing really what you can find if you just put in the right words. It can be a bit of trial and error getting those words exactly right but hopefully they are still working to improve the search facility.
Yesterday I was a bit naughty. Well maybe more than a bit. The day started with me sleeping until nearly 7.30 a.m, unheard of these days, but very welcome. Although it did then put me rather behind. Anyway I got a move on and headed off to the city by 11.30 a.m, not bad.
The aim was to buy 1, yes just one ball of wool. I was also trying to buy some organza. Simple, yes? Maybe....
First I didn`t buy just one very large ball, I bought two. Different colours I might add. Then I made a big mistake... I asked about the price of the cotton yarn that was on offer. Before I knew it the man had talked me into buying some, make that several balls. Yes it was a good price, but it wasn`t what I went for and it was still more than I should have spent on a ball of yarn, even if it was cotton.
Then off I toddled, still reeling at the speed of the transaction and trying to work out how that had happened. So I set off for the fabric shop. What started as an intention to buy about three colours of organza turned into nine shades. Hmmm.
Then I made the mistake of taking a look into another shop I get yarn from and bought more. One of those was the exact colour I needed for an order but the other four weren`t. Oh dear!!!
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Today we have a tasty treat
not something you`d want to eat.
They really have a yummy look
but they`ve not been made by a cook.
Some are crocheted and knitted,
you noticed, how quick witted.
Some are made of polymer clay
and they are only meant for play.
Cupcakes for the bath to have a soak.
No I promise it isn`t a joke.
Candles that are a delectable delight.
Have you ever seen such a lovely sight?
A bar of chocolate made of soap.
You won`t nibble that I hope.
A knickerbocker glory it would seem
delicious and covered in cream.
Hot chocolate with cream and a cherry,
now wouldn`t that be so very
scrummy, delicious and tasty.
Hold on though, don`t be hasty.
Once again they are not to eat
you wouldn`t like the taste of that treat.
Not a single calorie in any of these
you can have as many as you please!!

  4. You are welcome Babz.
    They do look so real and it`s fine to link to the british blogs Liz.
    I hang my head in shame Edwina. I also used to have a fabric habit and have a few bags of various pieces of fabric. The yarn though..... oh dear... I could stock a shop all by myself.
