JEANNE
of
BACKYARD NEIGHBOR.
♥♥♥   ♥♥♥   ♥♥♥

Thanks so much for so many of you leaving comments.
I just wish I could send you all a little tiny box of these
cuties.

I love that you can mix them....
use all the same design....
use only one color....
or have a kaleidoscope of colors for your delicious muffins
or tasty cupcakes.


Isn't it awesome what you can do with
A  MUFFIN
in photo editing...?

Ya can put a whole  new SPIN on it....

 Sweet Kathy at KATHY'S COTTAGE
is the one that started the whole thing of displaying these wrappers in such an awesome way.
Just as cute as can be, KATHY.
It made me run out and buy as many cupcake wrappers as I could.
I am still searching hi and lo for a pretty container with a LID.
 THEN.....
along came RETT at THE GAZEBO HOUSE
and she is showing off HER adorable jar full of wrappers.
So pretty, RETT


 I love the different ways to display....

seems we all have different ideas on the jars...well, MY jar is actually
LIDLESS....
just stuck another jar lid on it to keep the papers clean until I can find a prettier jar.

I just popped some RED and WHITE
ribbon on my jar....looks festive for
ST. VALENTINE'S DAY, don't ya think?

I looked and looked for polka dot wrappers but our Michael's didn't have them. Maybe later, tho.

Good grief...just having these pretty things sitting on our counters is BOUND to make us all want a
MUFFIN or CUPCAKE
ALL. THE. TIME. !

I am dreaming of LEMON POPPY SEED,
CHOCOLATE,
BLUEBERRY
STRAWBERRY
BANANA NUT
CRANBERRY DELIGHT

OOO, GOOD GRIEF !
STOP IT.....





O, and I love the different names these little cuties have...
CUPCAKE
wrappers
liners
cups
papers.





 Just about anything takes a better photo outside...
IF  the sun  is shining.
And, believe me, it IS shining out here in West Texas where we'd give just about ANYthing for a CLOUD full of RAIN.



cup·cake/ˈkəpˌkāk/
Noun:
  1. A small cake baked in a cup-shaped container and typically iced.
  2. An attractive woman (often as a term of address). (hahhha....I laughed SO hard)
Enjoy your teeny, tiny box of cupcake/muffin liners, JEANNE....
They are coming to you with lots of  LOVE....
Joining in the fun with:
REDNESDAY WED.
GOOD LIFE WED
WOW ME WEDNESDAY
OUTDOOR WED. (some photos taken outside...Does that count, SUSAN??)
WHAT EVER YOU WANT WEDNESDAY
THIS IS MY FIRST OF THE 
14 DAYS OF LOVE
The next 13 posts will have SOMEthing to do with
love

Congrats to Jeanne!! She is gonna smile from ear to ear when she sees how C-U-T-E these cupcake papers are. I found quite a few at Michael's, but not the pretty Cath Kidston blue ones. I'll keep looking.

I think YOUR jar full is just darling, BJ.

I'd gladly send you some of our cloudy, wet skies!! We did have some sun yesterday but it is gloomy & raining today. I think I'll make some muffins to brighten the day!

Hugs,
Rett
