Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.

    Miete is that wonderful ! Next time you visit the Bay Area, you must see it ! Love the colors and design of the shoppe – no doubt you saw the write up in Traditional Home ? Well deserved !

    i heard that miette’s cakes are so-so (although they look so pretty and i love their smaller size!). i was in s.f. last month and it was on my to-do list, but didn’t get around to it. next time! it looks like a lovely bakery. happy friday!

    Oh, I was so hoping you would be linking to the alot vs a lot page. It was so hilarious and needs to be shared.

    Love the Miette cookies, they were a big success on my blog the day I wrote about them :)

    It’s hard to find matchboxes like that now. I’ve seen some of them like those during a trip to Asia. So cute.

    I absolutely love Miette. I live in SF and love going down to the ferry building just take a peek at their shop and have one of their many delicious treats. They have some of the most amazing caramels and fantastic macarons.

    They also have beautiful cake stands.

    How did you know! I went looking at IKEA just two days ago and didn’t particularly like what I saw. Thanks for the link!

    i fall in love with miette’s charming displays every time i find myself in sf.

    p.s. the walnut shortbread is quite yummy!

    I live within spittin’ distance of Miette’s downtown address.
    Yeah, they’re pretty fab but, and call me jaded, not that much better than the enclave you’re creating.
    Seriously! You CAN make everything they sell. It’s just easier and prettier to buy it from them. And, I repeat myself, they’ve got nothing on you stylewise. I think you can chalk up your envy to their good web designer.

    miette is wonderful!! their stores are so detailed and they clearly thought everything through in regards to decor. their cakes are very good as well as the cookies. especially the ginger cookies. you should definitely check them out! if you are in the bay area check out both the ferry building location and the hayes valley location (which also features candy!) :)

    Beautiful, sensual & poetic, I just love your blog!

    Agneta, a swedish one ;)

    The Miette cookies are divine! Is it wrong to consider redecorating just to match some cookies?

    Thanks also for the link to the four-to booth birthday – wow, what a creative mummy that little girl has! Absolutely amazing :)

    And lastly, I absolutely LOVE Hyperbole & a half; Allie is so incredibly funny, it’s like all the neurotic thoughts you have that you would never verbalise, this girl not only expresses in a wonderfully humourous manner but also DRAWS PICTURES to match. Utterly genius.

    Thanks for sharing! xxx

    Miette’s rose geranium macarons are one of my favorite treats! And that wallpaper is to die for. Love your blog!

    I’m totally going to check out Miette baked goods, and I’ll let you know. I live in the Bay Area, and have been inside the shop and checked it out, but didn’t know all about it! THey have the cutest trinkets and vintage plates, etc. My favorite were the really tall candles for birthday cakes.

    I saw on the website that they offer classes, and I’m going to take the sugar cookie decorating class!

    Okay, that “four to booth” birthday is too clever!
    and i want those matchboxes!

    Hey, those are hungarian matchboxes. I was working for a hungarian auction company, they had a lot of them for a very low price.
    Anyone interested?

    Miette is amazing! The Old Fashioned cake is one of the most delicious cakes I have ever consumed – and it’s so cute & simple. It’s one of many things I miss about California!

    Such a complete set of vintage and exotic matchbox labels. Handmade crafty texture is very in at present.
