Almost spring,

Spring is on its way, I can hear more birds, it's feeling a bit warmer and the snow has melted!

a spring gift for myself

So a bit of spring (tulips) in the house!

Just another day

My doughter has been making a beautiful cake.... But it was eaten before I could take a picture of the finished cake!

swap fabrics??

Just a little peek,
not sure if this is going to be the right (swap)combination.....

I can't believe that your snow has melted. We just got 10 more inches!! That cake looks just too delicious. I can understand why it was eaten so quickly. Love the fabric combos too!

Lente is echt in het land. Veel vogelzang 'sochtends en de bollen beginnen wakker te worden.

Your tulips are very pretty but I think I like your jug even more! It's very spring looking. What a clever daughter you have to make such a fabulous cake! Love the red hearts.

Jaja, vandaag was het zo zacht! De goudvissen waren wakker, de sneeuwklokjes deden hun best en de vogeltjes zongen er idd bij. Laten we hopen dat de lente doorzet! Genietze!

O bolo ficou lindo e deve ser bem apetitoso.Quanto às tulipas, consta que foi a rainha Catarina de Bragança,portuguesa, que além de introduzir o chá na corte inglesa, também terá levado as tulipas para a Holanda.
The cake was beautiful and should be well tasty.about the tulips, which was given to Queen Catherine of Braganza, Portuguese, who also made the tea at the English court, also have brought the tulip to Holland.
De taart was mooi en goed moet worden tasty.about de tulpen, die werd gegeven aan koningin Catharina van Braganza, Portugees, die ook de thee in het Engels gerecht, hebben ook de tulp naar Nederland gebracht.
have a nice week
