Oh my cuteness!

Etsy is by FAR one of my fav places to shop. There is a never-ending supply of uber creative goodies over there!

Todays, "I WANT THAT!" find is this sweet altered art type necklace by Tickle Me Pink Boutique.

How cute is THAT?!

What is a cupcake?

JUST in case we have some friends visiting from other planets who are unaware of the glorious little cups of goodness....

A cupcake (the common US and Australian term) or fairy cake (the common British term), is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper cup. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are common on cupcakes.

What does "persnickety" mean?

per·snick·e·ty \pər-ˈsni-kə-tē\
adj. 1 a: fussy about small details : fastidious b: having the characteristics of a snob2: requiring great precision

No no, Persnickety Sweets has nothing to do with snooty fancy shmancy goodies! I define "persnickety" as picky.... which is a tribute to my 3 kids, 2 of whom are the PiCkIeSt eaters, which is where the name was born. A wee bit ironic since I don't think there is a sweet they would complain about! ;)
