My Baby Girls 13th Birthday ..

Hello my dear friends,

life has been so busy again and because of it I didn't have the time to share my daughter Caylagh's birthday with all of your lovely bloggers. She is now 13 and so grown up already and does not like a lot of fuss around her right now (that includes taking photos) so her birthday was very small but very nice.

 As I told you already I wasn't able to finish my gift to her in time unfortunately but she received other gifts and loved them so much.
 
My older daughter Ashleigh baked the cake and ...
 

 
...because of Caylagh's love of unicorns that is what we chose to decorate her cake with.

 
The cake was golden pecan with a layer of brownies in between and covered in cream cheese icing ... needless to say it was yummy?!
 
 
Mail was opened and ...
 
... yes, there was a unicorn card there too.
 
 
 
 Caylagh received this beautiful antique locket from her sister and  ...


... this tiny critter from me.
She had found it on Etsy and fell in love with it so Mama knew it would make her happy.
It is so tiny it fits on a penny!
 
 
... and her Dad and other lovely relatives sent her on a shopping spree which we girls went on right after breakfast. Our final gift to her was that we surprized her with a day off of school. The day was great but very tiring and we were all happy to be in our bed at the end of it.
 
As I am writing this post my fingers are resting for a little while longer before I take to quilting again. I am so close to finishing my gift for my daughter and I am hoping to share it with you very soon.
 
It would be nice to see you here again some time and until then ...
 
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.
 
Have a peaceful and creative day,
 
 
Karen B.

  3. Such a sweet birthday for your daughter! My son who was four yesterday also had a simple one at home and I also managed to finish his birthday gift just on time-it was an animal quilt and he snuggled under it last night. I think ur also making a quilt for your daughter? Best wishes all the way from Sri Lanka!

  5. WOW - that little unicorn brought back memories for me. For my 2nd birthday I received a teenie little glass bunny rabbit - yup fits on a dime! Needless-to-say here I am 66 years later and my bunny sits in my printer's tray where I can enjoy it every day.

    Hopefully she'll enjoy hers for 66 years also.
