Frog Cake

That doesn't sound very appetizing does it? But it's just so cute!

Playing around with my small collection of Flower Frogs I decided to stack them and got this adorable look, resembling a Wedding Cake:)

Flower Frogs are highly collectable vintage items, that are so much fun to have around. 

They make wonderful place card holders at a table, or can be used to leave your Beloved a note...such as "pick up your socks"-;)

I personally adore the tiny ones. But they come in many shapes, sizes, designs, and colors.

I recently sold a large Hair Pin Frog in my shop. It was gorgeous. I just may be having "seller's remorse". It comes with the territory. 

Do you own any of these lovely little Flower Frogs? If so, how do you display them? Leave a comment if you wish. I love the new feature that I can reply directly to you in my post. 
For those of you who've been having troubles commenting, I'm looking into the reason why. And thank you for letting me know. Finally, a warm Welcome to my New Followers! So happy to have you! hugs, tami

  1. Yes I have a frog collection! I have posted about my garden cottage where I have my gardening antiques. I love to find unique ones and a great way to display seed packets too.
    Thanks for showing us your frog cake.

    1. Hi Ann, thank you! I looked for your frog post or garden post in the archives would love to read it, I love your gorgeous garden shed!

  2. Frog cake?? If I could find my frogs, I be having some cake too!! TOO CUTE

  3. I have a few frogs and love them in vignettes. I use them to display photos, postcards and signs. Just so much fun to use them!

  4. Love the little wedding cake look......I have several of these little cuties. I'm going to go see if they're graduated in size.. :-)


  5. OH! I have a few and love them too.... but I have not made a frog cake yet! Those frogs can be used for so many clever ideas! I have had issues commenting too...

  6. I love flower frogs. They make flower arranging so much easier! :D

  7. Well Now I have noticed the "reply" button is gone! Oh Grrr Blogger can work the nerves! Thank you for the lovely comments everyone. I will have to look at my settings, the previous post had added a nice little button to reply to comments, I suspect Blogger is working on a feature or maybe I accidentally clicked something new.

  8. Oh, oops I see it now, hmm someone needs more coffee!

  9. I will have to be on the lookout because I would love to use them for place cards!

  10. That is just too cute! :) Happy Thursday, Tami! :)


  11. That looks amazing. I wish I could try that cake.

  12. Flower frogs are one of my favorite collections! I used them around the house, in my studio and the rest are displayed in an old divided drawer (like a cubby)!

  14. I have a bunch and I just lay them on table tops~I have the wire ones and the glass ones with holes...

  15. I do not have a single one! I'm always on the look out though. Love how you stacked them in a little cake form.

  16. I love it! I have some flower frogs, I'll have to see if I have some that would make a cute "cake"! :)


  17. love this little frog cake...sometimes it is the simple things reinvented that make an endearing impact...


  18. I love what you did with these, it makes me want to start my own collection! thanks for sharing :)

  19. Cute...I think I may need some :)

  20. Hi cutie,

    I love those - and they look so cool stacked up like that. If you change your comment setting to 'po-up' or so that they appear on a separate page then there shouldn't be any more's only on blogs where the comments are below the post, as yours are currently.


  21. The glass or pottery ones with holes make an adorable display for vintage colored marbles! Love the cake!

  22. I have been collecting frogs for years...they all live in a great picnic basket that I have, until I bring one or two out here and your frog cake!

  23. They are just beautiful these flower frogs! I have never been able to find on myself...

    Have a nice weekend!

  24. I have one frog. The day I bought it I forgot it was in my bag and almost started crying when I jammed it under my fingernail. But other than that little incident, I love it!

  25. Ooooo! I never thought of stacking frogs like that!

    What a nifty idea!

    And I just so happen to have one of your lovely birdie tags I could use....hmmmm.....

    Of course all my frogs are packed away out in the storage shed right! hiss!

    Most of mine are of the glass variety, but I do have a couple metal ones.

    I think I'll be on the look out for some metal ones now, though..........

  26. I'll have to remember your idea of stacking the frogs! I have just a couple right now and one I use in my bathroom on a shelf to hold a vintage postcard. See it here (in the second photo):

  27. Oh they are so precious. Ist time I have seen them. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  28. Oh me I love them! I knew these as flower grandma used to use them a lot :) You sent me back to the long gone days.


I love hearing from you, and read each and every comment, which are greatly appreciated :)
