Happy Birthday, Happy Nurse's day...
and Happy Day for the rest of you!
My my, spring always brings many birthdays to celebrate! Which also brings many photos to show you too! The first photo above is the campfire cake I made for Kevin's Birthday. I first read about the cake from this post. I made a strawberry cake with chocolate filling! Yummo! Although I used a different frosting (Duncan Hines) and didn't like it as much as the frosting (Pillsbury) I usually use. No, I didn't hand make the frosting, I wish I had the time!
The second photo is my new-old typewriter I picked up down the street today at a yard sale. It came in it's own case and is compact, which works out due to the limited space I have! It's in good shape and I was surprised that there was any ink left. I always find the best stuff from my neighbors!
For my hubby's birthday gift, I bought him a sprouter! He loves sprouts on his sandwiches but every time we buy them from the store, they are rotten in 3 days. The system I gave him can produce sprouts in less than a week and grows right in your kitchen! Here we are loading the trays with organic sprout seeds (China Rose Radish, Broccoli and Mung Bean)
and after 3 days of watering morning and nightclose up of the China Rose Radish Sprouts
Can't wait until I have fresh sprouts in my sandwich!
For those of you who work in the medical industry, I hope you had a nice nurses day! I really want to give a thumbs up here because it's the nurses and medical assistants that do all the "dirty" work! Koodles to all of you! I showed my appreciation with these gorgeous violet Campanulas!
The "flags" are made of scrapbook paper and skewers. I put them together last minute to add some whimsy!
Hope you had something to celebrate this weekend, if not maybe take this quote into account:
"Celebrate the happiness that friends are always giving, make every day a holiday and celebrate just living!"
