Wall of Whimsy, Slew of Scarves, Cupcakes, and Photography 3

In my adorable little apartment,
I have what I enjoy referring to as my wall of whimsy.
It is my collection of the glorious little things I have found,
or been given.

I am particularly fond of these brightly colored plaster banks.
Hopefully this collection will grow.

Yesterday during a deep move all of the furniture, dust, vacuum,
and organize type cleaning I realized that I have a huge amount of scarves.
I decided that rather than shove them in to a drawer
I would display them. And this is what happened!

It is a hanging slew of scarves.
I think it is fantastic, well at least for now until I can find a better way of hanging them.

I also made cupcakes and learned how to make dark chocolate ganache frosting, which is basically a miracle. I'm sure it is fairly terrible for me, but goodness, it is battling with fudge for my love which is saying a lot.
It made me happy to use my pretty cupcake liners too.

Alright, on another note, I have started photography three for the 2nd time.
We are taking portraits with partners, this is mine.
He's not grumpy, just making a face.

I'm sure he will be thrilled that I'm throwing him up here, but honestly how many people run across my blog anyways. I have the feeling that he is a better photographer than I am, because the above is what I came up with, but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I am the better crafter.

This is what he came up with, I did fix it up a little bit though.
We are going to take some more photos tomorrow. Hopefully I'll come across some sort of photographic inspiration tonight, so I'm not completely clueless tomorrow.

My dear little friend

My brother got me this little robot for christmas.
He keeps me company on my desk.

The best thing about him though is that he doubles as a pencil sharpener!
Thanks Kyle!
