Jacques had a lovely ..birthdays:)
They tend to last a few days.. which is nice I find..
there is the day we go out for lunch..
there is his real birthday..
and the birthday..
we all get together.♥
It was at Caroline and Frédérick's:)
I have mentioned for 16 yrs at least what a chef he is:)
You should have seen the plated platters♥
And look how cool he is.. 6 ft 5..like my brother was..
he loves watches..
now bracelets..for causes..
he wakes his boys up ..calmly and gently..
he walks them to the bus stop..EVERY single morning..
he coaches football..
takes them to track..
serves up Frangelico on ice..
makes his own beer.
Offers to trial run me on the train to Mtl..
The list goes on and on..:)
Did I mention that apart from his immediate family of 5..he adores his mom and siblings?
I have another son-in-law with qualities that are so different..but also..so admirable..tag he is next:)
Everyone was there..the table was beautiful..the sweet touches..cards..food..gifts..music..games..
his beautiful family..loves him..and that makes me very happy.
The cake was liked..
Hahaha this one was saved from their 2005 Holiday Issue..LCBO..
if you make it..DO make the cinnamon fudge sauce..that's what sends it over the birthday cake top.
I found the brownie layer could have been less dense..I have a super brownie recipe..may use that next time..however..w/ the thick warm sauce..you probably need substance..and I should have pushed the cheesecake part further down..you really can't see..as you add the cheesecake filling on top of the baked brownie..there is a parchment collar all around the springform pan to hold the filing above and inside the rim..so when you make..if you do..push the filling down..it was fine everywhere else..just not on the outer ridge..when cutting in..it was beautiful.
here you go..:)
Painted small seed packets..
If you want some I think you can print some up from here..tny tiny one and 2 less tiny:)
We were out Jacques' birthday week and did errands here and there..an Asian market I love.. an Art store I love..a pristine bulk store ..we picked up things here and there..
At the art store.I won't get into the impulse item.. but I will say I bought 3 watercolors..
Sennelier Raw Sienna..because I am INLOVE w/ all Sennelier..ALL.
I have only 1 tube of Sennelier..must correct that..all my good tubes are DS.
I did buy 2 Van Gogh's..I have a few of those from YRS gone by..their sale had the VGs..I bought Azo Yellow Deep and ..
Permanent Red Deep..No regrets..
I never paint on 6x 12..I am not at allc comfortable with large...or landscapes etc..so I usually paint a few things on these pages of my Strathmore book..but yesterday I bought the annual daffodils for La Société Du Cancer..and Shari..had shown us a tutorial..when I came home..it popped into my mind..go see..I have 2 of her Craftsy classes..that are excellent..this was a demo..
I tried once..10 minutes max..I will try again and again..you may enjoy this:)♥
Find her demo here.
I am excited to have my garden grow and try different free hand free bouquets.
For super cute Peter Rabbit Seed Packets....don't forget these I shared a few years back from Strangers and Pilgrims..♥
