Having shown you the cake I made for my sister's birthday last time I felt I had to tell you about the present I gave her too....a painting by Claire Barone
I found Claire on Folksy, loved her stuff so contacted her about commissioning a painting of Julia with our dogs Molly and William (who are sadly no longer with us), Claire said yes, I emailed some photos and then she went to work and made this amazingly fantastic painting!
This shot is just before Julia started crying (with happiness I hope!)
The painting and the lady herself.
Thank you again Claire for making such a fantastic gift, it was the talk of the party! x
It was my sister Julia's 40th birthday recently (her birthdays are always a reminder that I will be turning that age in a year's time!) and so I made her a little cake to celebrate at her party.
I thought it would look cute to photograph the cake with a few pictures from our childhood - Julia's the one on the right in the main photo.... we did have long hairstyles but cut each others hair so we had to have it all trimmed short, we got in big trouble that day!
