Party Pictures

Hello friends...
So this is definitely something new..... blue skies and sunshine! 
What a beautiful day for my niece's birthday.
Rachel was very pleased with her case full of chocolate, she is off on holiday soon and 
joked that she may take it all as hand luggage! 
My sister has been busy again - a gorgeous birthday cake.
I love how she is able to put images onto the layers of chocolate, 
the pink chocolate tastes of strawberries - yum!
Here is Bella making friends with Karla, one of my sister's Bengal cats.
This is Mo - their Shetland pony who came to the party too! 
Are you sensing how much we all love animals ...!
Bella is slightly confused by horses, she keeps her distance a little...
This is the front view of my sister's lovely home.
Spot the alternative window box decoration!
And this is Casper! 
So a photo post today..crafty news coming this way soon, so much planning, organising - it's all fun!
Back tomorrow, take care friends.

Bella looks so tiny compared to the pony, I bet she would look minute next to a horse! Looks like you had a brill day! I must say the weather does make all the difference, I'm glad to say, we were at a wedding on Saturday it was so lovely being in the sunshine, just hope it's good next week for Becki's wedding! Your sister's cake is my sort of cake, bet it tastes good, pity we can't all have a sample. Take care, looks like another sunshiny day, yippee Alison:)

Hi Christine
Wow what a cake, it was nice to see some sunshine this weekend here also, my poor dog Max (german shepherd)does not like it as he cannot find any where cool to be.
Have a great day and happy crafting.

Morning Christine, Absolutely lovely piccies, what a wonderful day you all had. Loved the pic of Bella with the horse, she was definitely keeping her distance ha ha. Your sister's home looks stunning and the window box decoration was beautiful, that's a cat for you, 'in it, near it or caused it' ha ha. The birthday cake was STUNNING, must have taken her hours to make all the decorations, seems too pretty to cut ha ha. Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hi Christine, how your niece resembles you and her cake is a dream. You sisters home is a chocolate box picture how I envy her. Bella looks bemused by the pony bet she enjoyed herself.


Redanne said...

Hi Christine, that cake is a work of art! Love the pic of Bella with the cat (but where is the cat's left paw?) and the pic of the cat in the window box is fabulous. Sweet pony too, yes I think I can believe how much you and your family love animals! Lovely photos, glad the weather behaved itself too..... A x

Hello Christine,
Do you know it is so interesting looking at photos especially ones that have a bit of blue sky in them.
Your niece looked like she loved all the chocs & I can definately see a likeness between her & yourself.
What a beautiful house your sister has real chocolate box looking & words cannot describe that amazing cake. WOW!!!

Hi Christine from a very sunny Nottingham!! I love your pics - especially Casper who looks slightly grumpy in the window box LOL. As for Bella and the pony you can tell all by her ears - she looks totally puzzled! I wonder if she is thinking "humpf - can't eat it, can't play with it - what good is it??"

Your sister's place looks beautiful - I would be in seventh heaven living somewhere like that, and that cake -oooooh where's me fork???

Thanks for sharing these with us, they are all brilliant.

Hugs Sue P xxx

I love Casper. He/She reminds me of my own Callie. Cats are my favorite, I have 3, but I have 3 dogs too, a boxer, a lab, and a mixed breed chow. Your sister's place is lovely, and your neice is very pretty. Yum Yum on the cake and luggage of chocolate. Chocolate is also my favorite! Have you tried 'hazelnut spread'? It is chocolate flavored peanut butter - yum yum - actually it isn't but it is better than peanut butter, which I also love.
Have a great day and thanks for posting these lovely pictures.
