fire alert.........

Fairy girl got a little carried away with the candles............pleased don't count them but I was waiting for the smoke alarms to go off when we blew out the candles.............lol..........
these are the fabrics I received from my online group birthday swap...............Friends in Stitching............thanks Razzy I love the fabrics.........6 fat 1/8's and we have to make a small quilt from them........
my sister is a gem and she gave me this Material Obsession book..........
and the super treasures at my house gave me this mixmaster...............yippee..............my old one is about 50 years old and I have had and used it (and loved it) for about 15 years..............think it is running out of life though struggling a little............wonder if this one will last 50 years?????? 
it even has dough hooks- can't wait to give them a go...........
yep that is grey laminex on the wall and bench top..........the kitchen is from the 50's too............I do dream of a new one but the one I have is mouse proof and works well...............
Catch you later..............

  1. glad you had a great day, enjoy all your goodies. I have a mix master too, it is Mum's original. She bought the stainless steel bowls for it a few years ago and gave it to me for Christmas that year. Not really sure how old it is, early 60s I always assumed. Need to check that out!

  18. Happy Birthday..... the candles on the cake picture is just too cute. I also have that book - haven't made anything from it yet but feel "one must have something made from Material Obsession!" I'm a bit jealous of the mixmaster! Hugz

  31. Our Mixmaster has bitten the dust. To the extent that whenever I remember I need to bake a cake, I need to use a recipe that requires only a quick 'stir'. Lucky chook!
