Hello to any new readers that joined through the CookiersRUs yahoo group! I am loving all the ideas and fun dialog between everyone! I have added so many new blogs to my reader and they are wonderful! Welcome to all!

I am so excited to introduce everyone to this year's Mother's Day cookie collection...but first, I have an important announcement:

ä
  Flour Box Bakery will be *Closed* Next Week 

Next week, I will be taking some time to do a little product research in New York City. I will be unable to process/ship orders from Saturday, April 24 through Friday, April 30. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. I will resume the normal baking schedule on Saturday, May 1st. Thank you in advance for your patience. I will try to give few updates from the road on the FBB Facebook Fanpage and Tidbits. 

Our newest cookie collection for Mother’s Day has been added to the site today!




Inspired by the most amazing mom on the planet (my mom), I have created a special teacup/teapot cookie collection for Mother’s Day. This collection will include 14 cookies: 5 teacup cookies, 5 teapot cookies, and 4 bite-sized daisy cookies. Even though I am closed next week, orders may be placed for Mother’s Day today until May 3rd. Please note that orders for Mother’s Day will ship between May 4th – May 6th. Here are a few up close shots of the detail on the 5 teacup/teapot sets. 


The hearts sets...

     

and the dots sets...

     

And my favorite two cookies of the collection:



My mom loves tea. She has a cup every night while reading a book. For Christmas I found the neatest teacup and saucer set at Home Reflections on Calder Way in State College, PA (it's just a lovely store!).



Isn't that saucer something? I saw a plain white version of this set at the Titanic exhibit in Vegas last fall. The exhibit was at the Luxor. They had artifacts that had been recovered from the Titanic wreckage. I noticed the teacup and saucer right away because it looked so practical and it looked like something my mom would love. A nice big area on the saucer for a piece of toast or a cookie.

A few weeks after the Vegas trip I stumbled upon this set. It is imported from England. My mom flipped over it! 



She also flipped over these cookies : ) I have a wonderful mom!!

Gotta go pack up my suitcase. My next post will be from the road! 

Have a sweet day,
Anne
