It’s been a while…

Far too long since my last post…sorry about that. I have been pretty busy with various things which has kept me away from here but I will try harder!

In the meantime, hope you enjoy the picture of the birthday cupcakes seeing as it’s my birthday today and all that. Wish I was getting those cupcakes but I’ll be happy with any kind of cake really!

Lots of Love,

Have your cake…

It’s well into the new year now and everyone is probably feeling a bit meh now that there is no exciting Christmas things happening and the next holiday is a way off…this is also around the time that people are falling off of the diet wagon so I thought I’d just help you along with that by showing you…cake!

First we have strawberry chocolate cake…yum!

Looks yummy right!

Next we have…lemon layer cake!

I think that is an impressive-looking cake.

Next…carrot cake!

Carrot cake used to scare me…how can you make a cake with vegetables?? I am now a convert.

Last, because it’s so pretty, rainbow cupcake!

So, who’s hungry?

Lots of Love,

Wedding Bells

Hello you 🙂 So lovely to see you again.

I have some excellent news…my lovely sister, Miss S, has got engaged! So, in honour of her planning the wedding I thought I’d show you all some lovely wedding stuff that makes me smile.

This indian wedding cake is amazing!

I love this shot of the lace dress.

Dresses from 1861

Dont forget flowers! I like bright ones 🙂

Some great ideas for homemade wedding favours.

And of course, a gorgeous knitted shawl…I could make that, I’m sure.

Congratulations to you both!

Lots of Love,

Some Sunday Loveliness

The weather here is not right for June, not at all…what is with all the rain?!

Anyway, seeing as it’s ‘nice weather for ducks’ I thought I would go with a duck-theme for today’s loveliness…enjoy!

First of all…a duck  on a duck…

*Quack!*

Next we have The Fat Duck

…the three Michelin star restaurant where Heston Blumenthal

…carries out his crazy food experiments.

I’d love to go there but it’s about £160 per person! Eep!

How about a glow in the dark rubber ducky instead?

*click picture for link to buy*

He costs £1.25 from Toyday and they do have lots of different duckies as well!

I’ve never had a rubber duck as far as I can remember…I might get me one!

This next one is for my dad seeing as it’s Fathers’ Day!

“I could dance with you till the cows come home. On second thought, I’d rather dance with the cows till you came home.”

Duck Soup starring the Marx Brothers…just for you, Daddy!

I love this next one…

By Margaret Zellner

How cute is that?! Knitted duck feet for babies…I wonder if I could make them for dog…hmm…

This is a free pattern by Margaret Zellner and if you click the picture above it will take you to the Ravelry page for it.

How about duck-shaped cookies?

This cute little cookie was made for a baby shower…but I’m sure it would do just as well at a duck-themed party 🙂

Hope you enjoyed the ducks!

Lots of Love,

Yay Cake!

Well, it’s a grey and rainy Saturday and we all need something to cheer us up I’m sure. So I found this picture of an amazing cake to do the job!

I really like those lop-sided cakes and this one has amazing colours!

Don’t forget to enter the Posh Yarn competition, if you havent done already. It finishes on the 30th June.

Tomorrow I shall be trying to remind you all that, yes, it is actually June and , yes, it should be summer!

Happy Saturday everyone!

Lots of Love,
