Decisions Decisions

Last weekend we ventured into Bethesda, Maryland. When I hear the name Bethesda, I always think of the Bethesda Naval Hospital, but it is more than that which I have only recently learned. Apparently, it is one of the “most affluent and highly educated locales in the country” according to Wikipedia.

If I had known then what I know now it would explain all the nice – really nice- stores we saw lining the streets there.

And we passed this at an entrance to a park and I’m not exactly sure what you would call it. Art? Statue? Marker?


If you stand inside it and look up, you get this view.


Without a scale reference, you might almost think these are real people.


Then we ended up here. Can you guess where?


Yep, half of us would not be denied the experience of a cupcake. And the other half of us has very little willpower when it comes to chocolate.


Then we decided we really should have some samples to get a good overview of whether or not it was a worthwhile stop.


Our samples made it back to the hotel. After that, it was every man (or woman) for him (or her) self.


These are the kinds of things I was reminiscing about today as I tried to decide whether my next project would be a bear, a box or a bear for a box. Decisions, decisions. It’s never easy whether it’s which cupcake flavor to try or which piece of mohair to cut.


  1. How about a bear on a cupcake pin cushion ;)

  2. They just look delicious. I'm hungry now! Thank you for the pictures.
    Lot of sweet Hugs,

  3. I once had a Mother's Day Brunch at a hotel there.

  4. Great sculpture, and those cupcakes look really yummy - which ones did you go for then?

  5. Hi Katy,

    We succumbed to red velvet, salted caramel, vanilla (squared), chocolate & vanilla and lastly, chocolate (cubed) which is basically Valrhona chocolate cupcake with a rich
    Callebaut chocolate ganache icing topped with french chocolate sprinkles (or so they say!). Do you have a favorite flavor?


  6. Yummy !!! It all looks great~~~You have the best adventures. :)
