and a reallly happy birthday boy with a knitted jumper from his great nanny


Hope your day is full of amazing creativity

Happy day to you ♥

  • I saw your un-iced pic of the cake and thought "oh, that's like the little one I did for Beth!", but while mine ended up looking like a wookie, yours was divine. And the whole bee-thing – inspired (those are the cutest bees!). What a lovely memory for your month. Hope it makes things a little easier on your Dad's anniversary!
    Thinking of you.

  • That bee cake looks amazing! What a clever idea! I love themed birthday celebrations, it just adds something a little extra special to the day – a step more than just random cake and party foods!

  • I am a little creative over here today but nothing like you!!!! Wow…I am calling you up next birthday party! Hugs…xoxoxo

  • Okay Cathie…how can you be so sweet & so amazingly talented! If I had 1/2 of your talent I would be a snob 🙂 Good thing there is no chance of that! 😉

    Thank you so much for your sweetness about my Dad. Nothing like a Daddy is there? he is actually doing so much better now that it is amazing! He is home now with my mom & after a few really rough days he seems to be perking up & fussing over us from the chair where we proped him up 🙂 Thanks again for your thoughts! You are such a dear friend!

  • Lovely stuff, the cake, bunting, beehive and especially your little love with his pants falling down! Adorable! Have a great weekend, xKate

  • What a bee-autiful birthday! Love the bee cake, the fondant bees, the bee-hive. So sweet. Then the quilt, the bunting and what a sweet pirate bunny. You make me want to smoosh up my kids and get them back to being little kids instead of teen-agers! (yes, I so wish I didn't have three teen-ager's at the moment. No one properly prepared me…)

  • yummy to those bees.

  • Everything looks so wonderful and beautifully made. You are such a good Mum Cathie and your little ones are so lucky to have such a creative and thoughtful Mum.xo
