Hello!

IMG_4744.JPG.jpeg
Happy July and Happy Canada Day to all of my fellow Canadians! It is also my brother's birthday, so it's a good day. I received an email requesting that I share pictures of a flower cake from the May 2000 Victoria magazine, so here they are...

So pretty! I wish I could make roses like that.

As you can probably tell by the lack of posts, I've been struggling a bit with finding the time to blog. My style is to share a lot of pictures and have some sort of theme, but Phillip and Grace have been encouraging me to try shorter, more simple posts. I've spent that past two weeks thinking I couldn't do it, but now I'm going to give it a try! Hopefully, it will work out better and you won't be too bored. :0)

I'll be back soon!

Dear Kelli, The roses are stunning! They remind me that my mom used to make hand rolled roses for special occasion cakes when I was a young girl. It was fascinating to watch a rose 'bloom' between her fingers. Thank you for sharing.

Kelli, your posts are never boring whether short or long. You always have something to say/show. You're the leader of the pack. Have a great 4th.

Very beautiful!

And your blog should be whatever *you* want it to be and you should feel free to post however *you* wish!

What a beautiful cake - how could anyone bear to cut it! And I agree, whether your blog is long or short or full of pictures or not, it doesn't matter. Have a lovely day,

Cheers - Joolz

The cake looks great but it is wonderful to have to blogging again.

Missed your posts very much.

I love Victoria magazines too and I have all of the issues from the late 80s to December, 2000. After Nancy Lindemeyer left in 2000,the new Victoria was not the same.

We all have times when we just can't blog because life gets in the way.

Its good to see a post from you...it seems a lot of us have slowed down on blogging which is only natural in the summertime with so much to do and the children home...I do love to visit with you, though.

Kelli, I was in Canada on July 1st for Canada Day. We went to a lovely little town in BC called White Rock for my daughter's wedding.

I don't think anything you post about would be boring. I have missed hearing from you on the computer.

Happy Fourth of July, Debbi

Love the cake and I love that magazine! The Victotian era is my favorite! Thanks for sharing!

Sharon said...

Isn't it wonderful that there is no "right" or "wrong" about blogging?! That cake is just tooooo pretty to be real!! (at least prettier than anything I've ever made!!) LOL :)

PEA said...

Happy (belated) Canada Day to you too, dear Kelli! I've been struggling as well, trying to find time to blog and visit...this time of year there are so many things that need doing away from the computer!

That cake is just gorgeous. My mom used to make icing flowers like that, must ask her if she still knows how to make them and maybe give me a crash course:-) xoxo
