Cupcakes here, there, EVERYWHERE!

So today I was going to attempt to take down all my Christmas decorations, but.......I got distracted by cupcakes!! I noticed all around my house there's cupcake this and cupcake that. I busted out my camera and started taking photos of everything! So I thought maybe, just maybe you would like to see few of my favourite cupcake things. As I said, this is just a few things, and I'm not a cupcake hoarder or anything. I don't need a intervention! I just like being surrounded by things I enjoy and that make me happy!!! Plus, the majority of these were gifts.....honestly! Let's start off with some seasonal decor.

For two years now I have only had this one Christmas decoration, besides my little 3 foot tree until......

NOW!!! Santa gave me this little guy, THIS year! How did he know it was just what my tree needed!?

These are a couple of my cupcake books I have bought over the years or received as gifts for different occasions. There are a couple that I haven't even cracked open day I will.

These were the first cupcake themed anything I ever bought. I thought they were too cute not to purchase! I've never used them, probably never will. They'll just sit pretty on top of the microwave for now.

For those Canadians out there, I'm not sure if you knew but 'Crate&Barrel' has finally made its way to Canada! About two years ago I was in toronto and one had just opened in Yorkville Mall, as soon as I walked in I knew I was home!! My BF Julia pick this little diddy up at the new Calgary store.
Super cute!

So the ladies in my family are quilters, I personally don't think its something I could ever do. Both my Grandma's and my mom sure enjoy it though! I got a table runner(left) for my birthday and a cupcake quilt(right) for Christmas this year. I was really excited to see my logo on there!
Oh those Crafty ladies!

If you have read some of my posts in the past, you may have noticed this logo. Its my favourite graphic-T/everything else they sell store. The brand is Johnny Cupcakes , click the name and check em' out! By far Johnny comes up with the most unique ideas and even pays tribute to classic 80's & 90's films that I grew up watching.

I named my trusty Kitchen Aid Johnny, and them plastered this gorgeous sticker on him!

Unfortunately for a Canadian girl like me, you can only order online. But this means that I won't likely see my neighbour wearing the same shirt as me......ever!
And I like it that way.

Hope you enjoyed your visit, I'm sure I'll have more to show you one day!
