Good, Good Friday........

Just popping by to wish you all a very......

Our tree is decorated, and the sun is still shining,

..... a few other decorations around the house.

 The boys are now too old for chocolate eggs, or so they tell me, I'm hoping a big bowl of their favorite sweets will suffice.......

And DH has been up early this morning baking Hot Cross Buns.

Delicious spread with best butter, (no calorie counting today)....

..........well it is Easter after all.  Have a great weekend.

At Last.........

Sorry this post has taken so long to get here, the photos we took last weekend were rather rubbish, so I have managed to get these ones from my brother in law.
Well, we all had a beautiful day with no hitches, the weather was so glorious it really made the day even more special. 
                                              The happy couple with my Mum and Niece.

My mum who is now so frail, enjoyed seeing her last daughter married, she even managed the Reception but as soon as the coffee was finished I took her back to her Nursing Home, she was happy but completely exhausted.

The cakes were a triumph and the cake topper birds I made were very much adored by the bride and groom.

Here are a few close ups just so you get the picture, they were styled on the same theme as the heart favours in the last post, recycled lace and scraps of fabric.

My sister (the bride) found this horse shoe in her garden some months ago, so with a lick of paint and some handmade organza Flowers I transformed it so my niece could give it to her.  

A lovely day and very fond memories.

Hello, Hello......just dropping by for a quick update.  I have been very busy lately with very little time for blogging.  I have also had a viral infection, chesty cough and pharyngitis which put me out of action for well over a week.  I'm all better, but busy with  preparations for my sisters wedding this Saturday.   The heart favours I made are all bagged and ready as you can see, they have to be delivered to the venue tomorrow. I have cupcakes to pick up in the morning and a hair appointment in the afternoon.  DS2 is arriving home from University tomorrow evening, I am so excited as he has not been home since Christmas.   I shall be back with some photos of the big day soon.  The weather forecast looks good for the next few days, enjoy the  weekend and the sunshine.
