I seldom ever sign up for a giveaway, but THIS ONE I couldn't pass up.
The DIY Show Off was giving away a beautiful faux cupcake from My Cottage Charm.
You can imagine how excited I was when Missy contacted me to let me know I had won.

I have been admiring Missy's faux cakes and cupcakes since she first
 posted them on her blog.
Even though I loved her photos, I was a tiny bit apprehensive about ordering something from the internet I hadn't seen "in person".
Let's face it, it happens... you see something you think is beautiful in a picture on the internet, you order it, it comes in the mail and hummmmmm..... not quite the quality you thought it would be and looks nothing like the picture.
THAT -  is exactly what happened here....
Yep, you heard me right!
Not like the photos and not the quality I was expecting....

It was WAY MORE BEAUTIFUL than her photos.
I was just amazed at the quality of her work.
I had no idea they would be so beautiful.

Here's how my little cupcake arrived.
In a cute little box with a sweet note from Missy.

I opened the lid to find this...
So delicate and beautiful.

Because it looks so delicate, I was a little afraid to lift it out of the box,
 afraid it might crumble.
Was I surprised!
 It only LOOKS delicate... It's very well made and I have no worries it will crumble or chip.
I REALLY can't say enough about the quality of this little cupcake.
It's perfect in every way!

Believe me when I say....
The photos don't do it justice.  

Not only is the cupcake absolutely adorable but the service was great.
Missy e-mailed me right away to let me know she was mailing it. Unfortunately, there were tornado warnings in her area that day which prevented her from getting to the post office. Being a good business women, Missy again e-mailed me right away to let me know it would be the following day before she could get it out.
Don't you love that? She was so great! 
I would recommend her products and service to anyone.
In fact, I was so impressed, I will be placing an order soon....
I just can't make up my mind if I want the cake or the petit fours.
Thanks again, to both DIY Showoff and My Cottage Charm for such a great giveaway.

Congrats on your win, Lucy. I saw these and fell in "lust", but I was like you and a little skeptical. Good to know it was even better than you expected. I will definitely have to check these out again!
