Patricia O'Brien Fine Art


I work from watercolor color studies to create small oil paintings.  My time on coastlines — Cape Cod, Ireland and Lake Michigan, as well as time in the garden — inspires me every day.  This blog details my work along the way. 


The Treat Bakeshop


Sarah makes the most wonderful pecans that pair well with just about anything -- cookies, for example .... They are a also terrific gift for just about anyone, including yourself!

The Cake Lady


Karen Smith creates beautiful cakes and cupcakes, baked especially for your order from scratch.  My favorite is her chocolate cupcake; my sons love her Guinness cake -- you'll find it easy to find a cake/filling combination that you can't live without .... So if you live in the Milwaukee area, you're in for a treat if The Cake Lady bakes for you!

Burke Candy


Need some candy to compliment your cookies?  I heartily recommend Julie and Tim Burke's candy -- start with Grandmother Riley's Toffee and the sea salt caramels ....

Downtown Dough


Like to do your own cookie making?  Here's an excellent selection of supplies, ingredients, packaging, etc. etc. And if you live in the Milwaukee area, you can enjoy a delightful field trip -- it's in Cedarburg!

Fancy Flours


I LOVE everything here -- from cutters to decorating ideas to packaging...

NED: Useful Beauty


OK, there are more things of interest to me than just cookies and cookie supplies.... And here's one of them.  These beautifully designed textiles are the perfect finishing touch to just about every room in your home.  No surprise here, I particularly like the table runners -- they pair well with a platter of beautiful cookies!


Broadway Paper


This lovely shop in Milwaukee's Third Ward has the most thoughtfully chosen paper,  books, gifts as well as spectacular invitation possibilities and custom wrapping service.  And don't worry if you don't live nearby, their online store will give you the same delightful feel when you shop from home.
