My sister celebrated her BIG 60 on Saturday up the Sunshine Coast at Woombye.
It was a lovely afternoon tea with snacks, family and friends.
The cake was a huge surprise to her believe me! Her daughters had it made up specially with the pic of her as the topper! Her youngest, Kylie, who is a photographer, had taken the pic a few years ago for a project she was working on. It's not like there are bathtub shots of Sandy sitting around all over the place you know! lol.
and here's the birthday girl herself
shoving daintily eating said cake :)))) and that's Kara the eldest daughter, who made the gorgeous bunting you see in the background......and below.
Very simple and easy but oh so effective. Good job Kara! x
She has cut it from scrapbooking paper(glued together for double sidedness) and then added tiny wee little eyelets to each corner of the triangles and then threaded them all up. Voila.....very pretty bunting for a party atmosphere.
Just for good measure here's a pic of the setting sun through the car window as we drove home. It looks so very pretty doncha think? The tiny mountain you see is Mt Tibrogargan, part of the Glass House Mountains up here in Queensland. It's actually much bigger than it looks here and it's a very popular place for hikers and rock climbers to visit. Ooh look I've now got an educational and informative blog! :))
But we were all taken with how that huge cloud cast an equally huge shadow on the clouds above it. Bit of an eerie effect, yes?
I was very pleasantly surprised that this shot turned out so well given the time of the evening and the fact that we were speeding along in the car at 110kph!
and because I'll be a bit busy this week with sewing and might not get back again for another post, I'm combining two here.
Vic over at Punky & Me has asked what's On The Wall for the theme for My Place and Yours this week......"Show us what’s on your wall! Your kitchen wall, your bedroom wall, both or neither, let us have a bit of a sticky beak!"
|Hallway with old pics of ancestors into lounge/dining with my g.mother's beautiful railway clock. Hat rack made by DH, that mostly holds the collection of peaked caps I collected for him when I went to Canada back in 2005.|

Want to show off what's on your wall or have a sticky at other people's walls? Pop over to Vic's and play MPAY!
