  1. Happy Easter Zara, I adore the cake with the sticks and little flags. What a lovely tea towel from Kylie, you cant really have been born in 1990? That makes me feel rather old :)

  2. i haven't seen that book before, i will have to check it out. looks like a lovely week you have had x

  3. Such a great idea for displaying the cotton spools! I was wondering how I was going to display the ones I have just inherited - thanks for the inspiration :)

  4. Beautiful photos and I love that cushion, the colours are spectacular, that Kylie is a keeper isn't she. mel x

  5. Love the cushions, Zara, and the cute picnic placemat with cutlery pockets. Your cats both look like they are grazing in a good paddock!

  6. I always enjoy your photography Zara. Absolutely adore the cushion, spectacular colours and your cake is just beautiful. The sticks look amazing! So rustic and spot on for a man cake I reckon ;) Leax

  7. Carrot cake with cream cheese & honey icing is one of my favourite cakes! Yours looks great :-)
    Happy new week!

  8. Lovely pictures as always. Do you have 2 cats then? And happy birthday to your love, that is one of my favourite cakes too. Mel x
