The caramel fudge (which is utterly divine..and almost all gone) was from my dear friend aka The Mama who blogs Around Arthur's Table ...will you post the recipe please? I must have more. I wonder how much I would have to eat until my teeth all fall out? Thank you, you domestic godess xxxx
This perfect vison of pink plumage is from dear Peggy Bloom of We Bloom Here... she and I have a thing for pincushions. A nest of blue eggs takes my personal pincushion collection to five. I am scheming a rather elaborate plot to multiply my collection but more on that later.
My big girl selected me this bracelet from a vast cabinet of jewels. Her father tells me she made the poor sales girl take out practically all of them before she was sure this one was it. I am not sure what the stone is but I love it.
And the wee girl got me a wood burning tool! I graffitied the old chopping board when I couldn't find a more approprite practice bit of wood... I'm sure I'll get better. I have plans to expand my crafting into woodwork and am dying to try out one of MamaWestWind's tutorials on her blog Chocolate Eyes.
The girls and I made cake...it was an epic fail and I will just skip over it...tasted more like heavy bread than cake; most disappointing. Anyway my brother and sister in law saved the day when they turned up for cake and brought with them a gift of three yummy cheeses and the pretties cheese knife I have ever seen (no pics..it is a bit dirty), so we threw the cake in the bin and gobbled cheese instead.
So I am now officially a curvaceous 38...and with all this food I might just grow a few more curves by my 39th birthday.
