Seriously.. how cute is this?? Stay with me here......My BFF from high school(well she still has bff status) daughter Brooke, who is also friends with my kids and is in business with her mom and sister is making *Sella* ORIGINAL accessories for HC. we emailed Brooke pictures..Brooke has taken into account the amount of hair Sella has and Sella's style(which means she has to like it or she wont wear it).. and so far this is what she has come up with.. LOVE IT!! Cant wait to see the boutonniere! ...I'm also a creator so times like this is when I miss living in the states..but then it reminds me that i have great friends who are family. Check out Margie's and Brooke's blogs. Brooke you really got INSPIRED on this one! thx xoxo

I got Sella a couple shirts while in Germany.. She actually liked them!!! I like the picture because....
Here is Sella's reply back...since Sam asked using a money theme... Sella,Emma,Bette,Anna,cooata and I ...did some brainstorming.... but I'm sure its no surprise that Sella would come up with a SELLA centered reply...I hope people get that the items listed are what guys would use to get ready for a date...now if we lived in the states we would have added a car freshener(don't guys spend all day washing their car before the date?) The shirt Sella picked out is Grey and the tie she picked out is a Grey.. so Grey/Grey.. looks nice! She also ended up using the Color picture...looked more like a magazine add or a billboard and just a Sella smirk.

Sella.. took some muffins ..Pumpkin Choc Chip next door. They raved and raved about them and I will admit they were as good as they looked. Evonna then told Sella she would make her anything she wanted...Everyone loves the Pizza they bring over but Sella said.. Spaghetti Pomodoro... and Evonna said ,really are you sure thats it??? Sunday afternoon look what she brought over.. it was sooo yummy... Evonna then told me that Muffins are not common in italy and that they always wanted to try them and they could not believe how good they are...they could SMELL them while I was baking and wondered if it was a candle. Evonna asked, americans have boxes?? I said yes there are box mixes but that I make them from scratch. It occurred to me.. Next time I will invite her over to watch/help me. I also must add...Sella took credit for making them ..sella says it a language thing it was just easier to say I made them . silly girl. I also must give credit to my good friend Margie for passing her secret along.
