How time flies! 
 As Colette here we will celebrate our 80th Birthday soon...

It was in the night to the 20th of June in Montreal. 
My sister celebrated with many transvestites her wedding with a party - and my birthday. It was my 30th. I sat in a armchair in a corner of a room, was all run down of jetlag, close to fall asleep. Suddenly a chesty male voice (like Barry White!) stroke up a 'Happy Birthday', holding a huge cake with lighted candles on. 
In my memories is looks like this:

Later a man who had the second sight told me that I would have three children...  

At my 40th Birthday we celebrated a Summer's tale in Germany.  
The weather was really nice over weeks and people were very cheerful - and the Montreal's prophecy has become true.

Today is the 40th Birthday of our host Stefanie Seltner... her theme of this week's drawing challenge is BIRTHDAY

"Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag, liebe Stefanie! Viel Glück und viel Segen!"

 Lets party at her enchanting place!

Next hostess is Mano with DRIFTWOOD at the 13th and 14th of October 2012

    1. Liebste Tatjana,
      es ist immer wieder eine Herausforderung den Blick und das Gefühl für das Schöne zu öffnen, gerade im Alltag... und auch Schokolade hilft dabei ;)


  2. oh please, lala! 80. i swear i'm thinking about old age already, from time to time. do you think it is only human, after all? i think i can live with colette's cake-on-fire though... terrific!
    your memory looks sparkingly celebratory! what a story, and such prophecy at that!
    and excuse me, is that a chocolate macaroon? over HERE, please! wowsers!!!!

    1. Yes, dear Nadeschda, thinking about the age is human... and this little cake is a huge muffin. Can you see its little one-eyed smiling face? Stefanie's drawings comes on my mind! And you love chocolate in all forms, don't you?
