Happy Birthday to me!


It is my Birthday today! I thought that I would try and find a BIRTHDAY CAKE. I like pink but I don't know about the little dancing girls.

This is nice but I'm not to certain... that is an interesting plate that it is resting though.

This is definitely looking promising. One candle that helps, no one knows how old you are and you can't get winded trying to blow the candles out.

Chocolate is always an excellent choice. One candle again, that is a plus.

This cake looks like a lot of fun. We could hang Chinese lanterns.

A circus merry-go-round with three different kinds of icing on top. That would mean three pieces of cake. I'd better not.

I like chocolate, we'll see.

The S.S. Willy will have to be the S.S. Lenny. I don't know peppermint is not my favourite, but I will eat it.

I could have two cakes, not for me but to share. Some people have peanut allergies!

We could have parfaits instead or maybe to go with the cake.

We could have a Birthday Sunday or a Birthday Sunday and cake. There are too many possibilities.

An ice cream cake and floats and iced tea, no it is too cold here today.

This looks like a fun table. We could have a CIRCUS PARTY!

This would be so much fun. The table is groaning with goodies but a lot of the food is knitted!

A lovely tiered cake stand filled with goodies.

Tiny knitted toys and pompom napkin rings. I like it but would everyone else?

Unfortunately the Licorice Allsorts aren't real. It does save calories, but it is my Birthday. I'm in a quandary I don't think I have come any closer to deciding.

Well it looks like Lori Rudolph of RetroRudolphs and Amelia Schaeffer of Sweet B Folk Art are celebrating my birthday today.


Lori Rudolph of RetroRudolphs baked me some cupcakes - yes Lori I stole this image from your blog! But alas I won't get a chance to taste them. Go to her blog to see her cupcake making, it's just like being there but without the tasting!


Amelia Schaeffer of Sweet B Folk Art baked me a lovely pie. This image was stolen from your blog as well! No tastes here either. Go to her blog to see her step by step pie making.
