Up Close and Personal....

I thought that you might like to see some close ups of some of the items from yesterday. These cakes are so real that they almost make me hungry....Almost...

Tessie has already managed to put a spell on them to replenish themselves every time they are eaten. That made clean up after her nap with the chocolate one yesterday easy....Zap and it was back and no crumbs! I want to learn that spell...It could be very useful.

Here's the bottom of the basket. I am in awe of whomever made this. It is real wood splints and It is exactly like it's large version would be woven. Notice the lines beneath it....That is the one inch mark is not quite to the edge of either side. The whole basket is 1 1/4" wide.

The doily on the left is the new one. It is even more intricate than the ones from last year. Laurie just gets better and better. Poke the photo for a better view.

The chopper is another item that I really like. I am told that it is by Sir Thomas Thumb. Thanks for the info, Roxanna!

Tessie took one look at it and announced, "Hey! A cake cutter. One whack with this and it will be cut all the way through. None of that gently slicing with a cake knife!"

Zar is nothing, if not crafty....He invited her over for dessert and mentioned that he liked cake...

Zar. Beware. She brought the replenishing cakes, but she also brought the chopper....One wrong move and you will be without a finger or two!

I am off to make sure that they play nice. The rest of you, have some cake. There will be plenty to go around. Tessie fixed it.

See you tomorrow.

In case the cakes are going to replenish, you might be able to send one of them to me, or just a piece of it. :O)
