The other day, looking for some Valentine treats, I stumbled across the prettiest website! I have been there on occasion before, but never explored much.
Glorious Treats is one of the loveliest food blogs I have found: beautiful, accessible, and tasteful. Her pictures are breathtaking. Her ideas are creative. Her treats are fashionably seasonal, yet usually infinitely adaptable.
Best of all, just as I was about to close the website with a sigh of despair (I will never make ANYTHING to offer to public consumption again. What a disgusting little amateur I am, with my small greasy projects and dim photographs. What was I thinking?), I viewed Ms. Glory’s profile, and realized with no small shock that she is, after all, human. With a normal family, a normal house. On her profile she links, by way of introduction, to
1. One of her favorite and most popular posts (Hydrangea Cupcakes)
2. Some of her prettiest cookies (Vintage Pastel Christmas)
3. The first party she ever “went all out for” (her daughter’s sixth)
4. And some photographs of her “super fancy kitchen” (The Glorious Truth).
Now that caught my attention…
And sure enough, it was a confession. I love that Ms. Glory makes a point of letting us see into her imperfections. Rather than smearing them all over each post (an approach that would get stale fast), she does her brilliant work to the best of her ability, then privately calls us to view the place from whence it came: a very ordinary kitchen, many flops, and some proud first attempts that just make her laugh, these days.
She has some lovely Valentine ideas I thought you might enjoy.
