Carolina Irving: Fabric of the Week

I adore Carolina Irving for so many reasons — from her clean, consistent look to her diverse offerings (you’ll find a block print, country floral, wide stripe and geometric pattern in her latest line, for example) that you really can’t go wrong with.

At Home with Kim Vallee featured these yummy treats from, who showcases Bakerella’s brownie pop recipe for the bites — check out this one or give my brownie bites decorating tips a whirl. YUM!

Spider decorations: milk/dark chocolate candy melts (for coating — follow double boiler directions from Brownie Pop How-To), black licorice wheels (legs), raspberry gum drops (or M&Ms for eyes), white sprinkles (fangs), black or brown nonpareils (round sprinkles for top of spider).
