We have a little boutique near us that sells really adorable jewelry and knick-knacks. I especially like visiting it because they have candy that I used to have when I was a kid. They have things like candy buttons on rolls of paper, wax bottles filled with sweet colored liquid, wax lips, Skybars which have 4 flavors (vanilla, chocolate, fudge and peanut butter - I would never eat the vanilla). They have Razzles which are halfway between candy and gum (which meant they weren't really good candy and they were a pretty poor substitute for gum), and Fizzies, which you can put into milk and turn it into different flavors (entertaining, but pretty yucky as I recall)!
Of course back then, candy used to cost a nickel or a dime. These now cost just a little bit more.
Look at that little cupcake necklace! It really looks good enough to eat! But that ring is really adorable. I don't usually buy jewelry since I make it myself, but I don't make things like this!
I think Emma would like that cupcake necklace.
[Follow-up, Sunday evening: nope, Emma wanted the matching Peanut Butter and Jelly Necklaces. She's keeping one for herself, and giving one to her best friend. ]
