Red, White and Blue.

Look at our proud boy with his birthday cake. He did a great job, and the cake was really good! I'm thinking he can continue baking for all our birthdays!
Here's a little table topper I made last week. With Independence day being tomorrow, I have decorated the shopwindows with red,white and blue. The colors of our flag.
Oh, and I've made some new handbags. Here's a blue one- to keep up with the theme here today.

The weather forcast for tomorrow is not great- +2C and a bit of snow. Kini will not be a happy camper in her twirling uniform, which is actually a cheerleader uniform and boots.... not your first choice of clothing in that kind of weather. I hope all of you will have a great weekend, and tomorrow you can shout "Hipp Hipp Hurra" for everyone in Norway celebrating.
Thank you for reading!
