A little bit of this and little bit of that....

I just thought I would share a few things that have made me smile big in the last few months. I hope you like them too.

Tully took up basketball last year, his first team sport ever. Tully, the sweetest guy with very artistic talents is somewhat sensitive about his sporting abilities next to his all round sportsman of a brother.
So it was big that he signed up. Not only did he fall in love with the sport, his team won their Grand Final. This is him on the day. We were all giddy with excitement, it was truly a wonderful day.

I spent Easter in Canberra with my mum, sister and her family. We had brunch at my sister's and her table was laid with this wonderful vintage china. It belonged to our Nana, it was purchased in the 1950's. It felt so good to drink tea from it.

Tully, as you would know if you follow my blog, turned 11 last week. His birthday was a giant cupcake. I have had the tin for ages but had  never used it. I was a great success I felt.

I loved the candles I found for the cake. I was mildly amused to note they came in a pack of 16 Candles if you get the 1980's reference!

 Tully and his friends certainly thought the cake was pretty awesome.  Look at this guy - I just can't believe he is 11.

Tully's fave colours at the moment are Turquoise blue and Orange. So his card and cake matched. I really enjoyed making it for him.

I actually made quite a few cards this past week with Mother's Day and all.

And speaking of Mother's Day. Miss Martha made this wonderful heart shape cake for me. What a little darling she is, so very precious to me.
