no rummage but plenty of sunshine

So Our Brisbane lied! There was no suitcase rummage on today! So no vintage kitchen stuff for me. Instead, I book shopped it up and grabbed a copy of the Popular Penguin 'And the Ass Saw the Angel' for the birthday boy and then caught the bus into New Farm. Such a beautiful day, and the cake was amazing (tasted as good as it looks).

Being sociable ...

The kick-arse birthday cake topped with fresh red roses!


I have found the most amazing porcelain wedding toppers ever. I am making a wedding cake for my friends and I want a vintage cake stand a topper that they can keep that's not tacky. I have found what I'm looking for. Melabo makes custom toppers in all the following animals; Duck, unicorn, horse, squirrel, owl, bear, pig, bunny (cartoonish), rabbit, cat, puppy, giraffe, elephant, mountain goat, deer, monkey, jackalope and robot.

squirrel and bunny


Now the hard part is deciding what two animals suit them best. He's a nerd-burger scientist who studies turtles and she's a gorgeous lawyer with beautiful long black hair down to her waist who would live on chocolate if the human body did not require fibre. Suggestions? See the flickr photos here. I think I'd like to pair the rabbit and squirrel or jackalope and cat.

This week I'll be giving away one of my brooches again. Comment here or on my next post to be in the draw. A little random heart is up for grabs ...

Wow, I think those wedding cake toppers even beat out the wedding cake topper that we had, which was an absolutely adorable antique. The groom had a cane and top hat!
The Graceful heart brooch is my absolutel favorite from your shop. Thanks for the chance to win!
