Christening or 1st birthday cake

I have been busy making my niece her christening cake.  My sister asked for pink,pink and more pink!  so here it is!

I hope she likes it.  it took me hours to decorate it!  and I'm really pleased with the result!
I decided to base it on a baby crib.  (or moses basket)  The hardest part was getting the hood to stand up.  But once Id got that sorted it was pretty plain sailing really.  A beautiful cake for a beautiful little girl!


I'm noticing it,  the children are noticing it,  even the dogs are noticing it!
summer is becoming autumn here in the UK.
My husband and I were driving at 8.30 in the morning yesterday and we both commented on the weather.  How it is dark when we get up now and how the cold is creeping in! And you know what?  I love it!  autumn and winter are my favourite seasons!  i love cosing up in side with my family while the rain batters down outside.  to be lovely and cosy is one of the God given pleasures that I enjoy to the max!
A little pleasure but one of the ones i enjoy the most!
how do you enjoy the seasons?

blog name change!

Ive decided to change my blog name to Butterfly Kisses.
I love Butterflies and think the name better suits this blog as I often flit from one subject to the other!
Nothing else will change you will still get my crafts, no nonsense views and ramblings!  hope you still enjoy reading my blog!

Our sweet pea!

The thing I love about home schooling our children is that everything is a learning experience.
Today while preparing dinner I spent a lovely time with Princess shelling peas.  We talked about how they grow and the different tastes from different sized peas.  How smaller peas always seem to taste sweeter and how different freshly podded peas taste from the tinned variety.  everything is education!

Thats all I have to say !


Hi Lovelies! You know, I was reminded this week how life is so precious.  We get one shot at it and we aren't like cats and have nine...
