Actually, my DH, grandfather to two gorgeous girls, is very good at baking cakes. But the title is somewhat misleading, lol, it refers to this week's Every Inchie Monday and Tag Tuesday challenges. The inchie challenge this week is "Grandfather" and the Tag Tuesday challenge is "baking".
Firstly, the GRANDFATHER inchie -
Maybe he had been mixing and using too many of the chemicals from the lovely old laboratory carrier you can see in the middle pic.
Background is a small fragment of French text, a tiny pic of grandfather when he was still young and experimenting with the chemicals, lol, and some small butterfly wings I found in the bag of images I had taken to France with me.
Next, this week's tag "BAKING" -
The background is a piece of fabricy paper from a Le Rustique cheese box. Yummmm, delicious camenbert. The image of the little girl I had in my image stash. I had used it before for a tag I made to go with a purchase of a vintage French madeleine baking tray. And of course the stamped words are all wonky because little Madeleine did them. Ahem. Thats my excuse and I am sticking with it.
Today is the most glorious day here in Bourgogne. It has been a long time coming but today the sun is shining, the sky is blue and the temps have risen by about 12C since yesterday. It is a heavenly 27C!!! So in a little while we will be heading over to our bestest Dutch friends Frank and Christine and their doggie Rozi and spend the afternoon/early evening with them, lounging about in the garden and watching our doggies all play together.
So, toodlepip for now, and hope the sun is shining on you wherever you are. xxx
