LET THEM EAT we did......

I'm not a cakey person really.......give me savoury anytime.......but we went to my son and daughter-in-laws for dinner last night as it was hubbys birthday and , boy, did we have a cake. There was cream , there was chocolate and there was every fruit that God has put on this earth......... raspberries , blackberries , apricots , kiwi fruit , grapes , redcurrants , you name it , it was on there. It does sound rather O.T.T. but , because it was fruit , it was lovely , really , a good time was had by all but , as you can see by the picture below , I did come over all unnecessary and had to have a foot massage........I obviously had a touch of the vapours as, it definitely wasn't the wine that we drank !!!!
As I've gone all Marie Antoinette , I thought a few pictures of furniture in the Louis XIV (or was it XVI) mode would be appropriate . Not my favourite period but, as you can see , it can be done beautifully.

This is a real modern twist on the Louis era.

.....................Finally , a wonderful splash of colour and fun. Hoped you like the look at the French Revolution period . I'm off for a lie down in a darkened room !!!


  1. I LOVE IT!!!!!

    And I was going to do a cake post with possibly the same title funny is that!!!!Stop reading my mind would you!!

  9. Hi Jackie! Your husbands birthday celebration sounded incredibly nummy. I gained 3lbs. just reading about it! Hey, I love any Louis. I inherited two pieces from my grandmother who purchased them in Austria while living there. I wish cherish them always. Thanks as always for your tremendous comments today. You are not alone, I wear very little color as well. I love to live in it, but don't feel as comfortable wearing it,. I'm so boring with my blacks & grey's too but I don't think either of us act boring. Thank goodness! Have a sweet rest!

  10. ahhh cake! I am with Simone ~ love myself a big piece of cake. I am not a fan of this period of furniture either, but I do like the last one ~ what fun.

  11. We just went over friends last night and made little piggies of ourselves too. We had cupcakes but not a lovely as those. That reminds me I still haven't finished watching that movie. Eye candy calories!
    Oh by the way Johnny's movie was no so good. Pretty to look at but a big yawn!!!

  12. i loved the movie, that was the best scene in it.

  13. Got to work out...I think I gained a pound or 2 from the post. Sounds like a off with your head morning after a decadent evening!!!
