Layers of rich dark chocolate cake with whipped cream and cherries in between the layers. It was so pretty and a delightful treat!
If you noticed, the walls in the kitchen-dining room is a deep rich red and the living room walls are butterscotch. The plates are going to look fabulous!
Tea to the English is really is a picnic indoors. ~ Alice Walker
I had my Earl Grey tea in this lovely Royal Stafford tea cup.
The roses are pink and yellow with a few blue and white flowers sprinkled in. The cup and saucer are trimmed in gold and there is a slight fluting on the china, making it very pretty.
"A gray head is a crown of glory." ~ Proverbs 16:31
" Grandchildren are the crown of old men." ~ Proverbs 17:6
Our grandchildren probably think their poppa is getting old but my hubby has reached an age where his crown of gray speaks of much wisdom. And don't let those gray hairs fool you, he always says!
He can still tackle his boys without any problem and they know it!
Hubby is still very young at heart and he brings much joy to his family and all those around him. He embraces life and he brings as much joy to life as it does to him.
What is it to stay young? It is the ability to hold fast to old friends, and make new ones, to keep forever our beloved in dear remembrance, and to open our hearts quickly to a light knock on the door. ~ Cornelia Rogers
My father who never gave compliments very freely once said of my hubby, " ' He spreads joy around the City wherever he goes.' "
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not marble. ~ Charles H. Spurgeon
So, here's to you, my sweet Hubby. May you enjoy many more healthy and joyful birthdays!
