Let us have cakes for tea...............


The First three beautiful photo's are of the current 'Romantic Homes Magazine, it is the best magazine this is page after page of France, and I just love it. One of my dreams is to travel up through France, into Holland then Norway, Sweden, Denmark, through to Finland, following the old Celtic paths across northern Europe....oh it is such a dream.. I like to think of us as this extended family, all with the same roots, all celtic..all as one...dreams sweet dreams... ala..LM.
While my family have been curled up on the sofa's reading, and munching, giving out small soft grunts of happyness....I have been playing at making little cakes, fashioned out of scraps of old silks and pages from vintage books. I thought at first they would make pretty summer place settings, for afternoon teas, and then I put on some gold ties and hung them from my blossom branches...ha.... a cake tree, oh how I love to play and not to work. I hope you are playing and not working.........
Have a lovely week dear friends
Hugs Lynn xx

I've gone from low-carb to no-carb so these cakes would be perfect for yours truly as well!!! How very, very sweet they look indeed.

Your travel plans (I say plans, not dreams) sound divine, too!

Hug bunnies and bears,

Sea Angels said...

Ahhh Marja they are most definately dreams my friend, so are no carb cakes ha
Love Lynn xx

Henna said...

Sounds like you´ve had fun my friend, making those delicate cakes! They look superb! I think it´s a great idea with a caketree :P
Your traveldreams sounds like summer warm winds added with sunmellow strawberries and icecream, the scent of flowers along the road..birds singing of happiness..:-)

In a while I will step into the sauna, relax and just breathe :-)

May your dreams be fulfilled Lynn!

All the best to you, hugs...Anne

Hi Lynn, what a wonderful looking tea party and those cakes look as light as air. Just the kind of carb free indulgence I need after the chocolate fest of the past few days. Beautiful photos, thank you

Hi lYnn
Yes i'm playing and non working, you know that staying at home to take care of the children is no real work when you listen to certain persons -Therefore I only play ;-))
I wish I was able to be transported d from one world to another like in Star Treck just to be able to share you're marvellous cakes and have a cup of tea with you, and have long talks like women do.I don't even know if I would be able to bite your cakes as they look so delicate and beautifully made.
Travelling, rambling thru those marvellous country is THE perfect dream
What is an angel (even a sea one) but a celestial being capable of doing extraordinary things. So travelling is no more a problem for you now, isn't it?
Have a nice dream, and come for real in France, I'll be there.

Solstrimmor & Stjärnstrålar said...

My dream are almost the same as yours but in the opposite direction, sorry if the grammar is incorrectly. Sometimes it's difficult to write down what I think. But I won't let it stop me, I'll try and try again.
Your pictures are so beautiful!

Yummy little cakes,
Delightful as can be
But best of all you know,
There's not one calorie!
One would be in heaven in a garden filled with flowers, fairies and little cake trees, don't you think?

Hello Lynn! I love your blog more everytime I visit! I adore your little cakes; anything that pretty (and calorie-free) is perfect! How lovely. You are just so clever and talented. It's one thing to be able to dream things up to make, but to actually be able to bring to life what you have invisioned is another altogether! Magic!
