Pineapple Cake

Image
Three months ago my daughter had her ninth Birthday and we still didn't have her party for class mates. Last weekend she asked if she could celebrate this weekend. A bit of a short notice, but since there's another two week school vacation coming up (again), I couldn't postpone. So, this weekend we had a party. My daughter wanted a pineapple cake (just the look, not the taste), so I made this one.

My First Easter Bunny of the Year

Image
Not the first bunny, because I already made a bunny as a baby present, but this one is for the Easter table.

But as you all know, since we have a bunny ourselves (a Flemish Giant weighing 9 kilograms, so he counts for ten bunnies, actually) I love bunnies, so I can't get enough of creating them.

This one is from the book Crocheted Wild Animals by Vanessa Mooncie



Here he is, the Giant of Flanders. Don't worry, he's still alive, just relaxing.

How To Train Your Dragon's Toothless

Image
If you have younger kids, chances are high you know the movie 'How To Train Your Dragon'. My youngest daugher is nine and she talks about one Toothless almost the whole day through. Toothless is a dragen, without teeth apparantly, and has the lead role in the before mentioned movie. I must say: he's an adoreble little dragon; black, with green eyes, and cute little wings. And he can spit fire.
As a surprise I bought a crochet pattern of Toothless to make for my daughter.

Rope Plant Hangers

Image
For some reason every plant that I ever bought in my life, ended up dead after just a couple of weeks. Time and time again I bought a plant every now and then, to see if my vibrations, or aura, or spirit companions, or whatever had a better outcome on a new plant in my house and I'm very happy to say that since about six months such is the case! Not all plants, I must say (the ficus for example still hasn't a long life when it lives in my house, and I really don't know why), but most of them stay alive, and not only that, they grow! 
In the town I live is the most adorable little plant shop, with all kinds of special plants and exotic flowers. Sometimes I just find that I deserve new plants, because apparantly I take such good care of them lately, so yesterday I went in and bought three new ones. Because the window sills are full, I had to change to hanging plants, and besides those two I bought a little terrarium. 
For the hanging plants I made hangers myself by rope. 



Spring Cake

Image
This weekend my husband's whole family came over for eating, drinking and chatting. Although we had a week of rain every single day, spring is definitely in the air. Flowers and trees are not blooming yet, but it won't be long before they will. I made a delicious Spring Cake, vanilla cake with caramel cream, decorated with Chocolate Flowers, Easter Eggs and  Caramel Crumbs. Do you know anyone who doesn't like caramel? I don't.
