BUNGALOW COOKIES/ Home Sweet Home



I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: 
a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; 
you need to be able to throw something back.

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. 
People love a warm hug or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

These Bungalow Cookies were a sweet gift to welcome new neighbors. You may notice my experiment with these cookies where I painted gray icing to add some depth to the window. The icing dried into the cookie and did not create the effect I imagined. So for the finishing detail, I painted the window with silver luster dust and I’m lovin’ the shimmery look.
