“butter mint fixation”


Description from Crazy Beader: The man of the house recently developed an addiction to butter mints. He eats the kind out of a box, but they remind me of those wonderful pastel mint patties that were served at wedding receptions and other special occasions back in the last century. Guess we get inspiration from all kinds of unlikely sources - - -

    Hey, Paula! I love this pick! Fresh, soft and so pretty!
    It does look great next to mine! I guess we ‘ve both been dreaming of Spring! It’s in the 20s here and going down to the teens tomorrow with snow on Friday! Let’s keep dreaming…..

    I can taste those mints… YUM…. they are one of my favs. And this pick is sooo pretty and making me more and more ready for spring. I hope this makes POD. I’ve always wanted some morganite.

    Those buttermints you talk about were the epitome of sophistication and gracious hostessing. :) I remember feeling so special every time I was allowed to partake of an occasion where they were served. :) This pick is a PERFECT depiction! Are we dating ourselves? :)

    OH! I think the buttermints are one of my all time FAVE candies. Melt in your mouth. I think my Mom taught me the lesson of “moderation” based on a bowl of these candies!

    Your soft pastel pieces are the perfect vision of buttermints.

    We are dating ourselves, but weren’t they delightful. You nailed this one!! Thanks for bringing back the memories. I find that every now and again Michaels, or similar craft stores, will still have them in the wedding section. Ah, temptation.

    Have seen several pretty simple recipes to make them – - maybe for Valentine’s Day ?? Am sure I can get the taste but am not as skilled as I’d like to be with my Wilton decorating kit – - -
