~ with style and grace ~

I had a lovely afternoon with Lisa of the fabulous blog With Style and Grace yesterday!  If you don't follow her blog you need to right now!  We had been planning on getting together since November - when we found out that we are neighbors.  Let me tell you she is SO darling, and we had such a lovely chat!  Oh and she is super sweet too...as she brought me a little gift! 

As I was driving home yesterday I thought to myself I need to show everyone how fabulous this little gift is (she did a post on her blog about it)!  The gift would be perfect to use as favors at a wedding.  And since I never did get my Tuesday Thought posted yesterday, I thought that I would use her gift as my Tuesday Thought instead...just so happens that it is posted on Wedensday.  Oopsies!

So here is the little gift I received...
So fabulous, no? And it would make a wonderful favor for your guests. You can always change the shape of the cookie and the color of the ribbon and thread...but the presentation is just perfection!  And the back looks just as cute as the front with her business sticker on it...
For a wedding just add a sticker with your initials, new last date, the date or a thank you and viola!
A close up of the yummy little man...
Who soon started to disappear...
And it was the BEST sugar cookie...
I have ever had...there was nothing left when I was done!  To get the how to and the recipe just head on over to Lisa's blog, With Style and Grace...or click right here.  Trust me, you will love these cookies!

Also I just have to share Lisa's hostess gift idea, that was featured on Courtney's amazing blog, Pizzazzerie...another blog that you must follow!  While the idea for these was to be used as a hostess gift, which I think is a wonderful idea, I also think they would make a great gift for the bridal party! 
Love it!  I could so use either one of these right now!  How about you? 
So there you have it.  A great Tuesday Thought...on a Wednesday...inspired by With Style and Grace

P.S. - Thank you Lisa for the inspiration, your time yesterday and our chat!  Look forward to the possibility of working with you some time soon.
