Oh happy day...

...today is the day that my family move in just near us...and i could not be happier!! :0)


in honour of their arrival...and instead of a *new home* card...i've altered them a tin and decorated it with the name of their new home...in the vintage style they love:
i've used a Wild Asparagus kit that i won at our local crop aeons ago...and added in some lace, a little bit of bling and a couple of grungey newspaper roses...it is Rose Villa afterall ;0)
...as with all cake tins...the good bit comes when you take the lid off...lol...i've made their favourite flapjacks and lemon buns...you know you've arrived when you have your first tea~party, right?
ok, i'm off to check the place out...and put the kettle on...bye for now xxx

Both pretty (the tin) and delicious-looking (the little cakes) - love those vintage flowers on the lid. Hope you'll be very happy with your family near ...
