Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday – a date I share with Jane Austen who (contrary to Rosie’s belief) is CONSIDERABLY older than me!!  This year I have been super-lucky as I’ve received what must be one of the cutest cards of all time ….. 

My Birthday Card

 Ahhhhh.  And here at Coombe Leigh we’re great believers in tradition, so no birthday tea is complete without jelly and blancmange – made in rabbit shape of course, with the very same mould my mum used when I was only little!  Here it is ready to be turned out …

Birthday Tea

The fire is lit, and we’re waiting for our guests to arrive…. 

Fire's Lit!Growing older might mean creaky knees and grey hairs – but birthdays are still lots of fun!

PS If you’d like to commission your own Flapdoodledesigns birthday – or any other occasion – card then you can contact Jacqui over on her Facebook page.
