Week of 01-01 through 01-07-2019
This week’s photo prompt is provided by Akshata Ram
He had wanted something special for his daughter’s birthday and she had delivered an adventure playground like no other. She had captured the essence of the place down to the last detail.
It had taken hours and patience, but it was perfect, her best work, and she knew he would be pleased.
This kids would love it.
And the best bit was that it was spun sugar and all edible.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
Happy New Year 🙂
Thanks reena. You too!
Wow! Love the idea.
My ex boss used to do sugarcraft, and some of the things she turned out were fabulous. Years ago, a cake maker’s window had a display of Cinderella’s golden coach, mice footmen and all the magic……… all done in spun sugar. She became famous for it and had the monopoly on black icing for years. She made a christening cake with peach coloured icing and tiny flowers with a black swan in each corner. Wonderful.
Must be amazing. Lucky to have such a talent.
A great write…I tried my hand at sugarcraft in the 1960s, it was fun.
I mnaged some marzipan roses and a sugar paste fisherman, but that was about it!
Love this! I wish I could be a kid again!
Thank you! Happy New Year to you.
Ha! Happy New Year Violet.
How wonderful! It reminded me of a time when I was little and in the hospital, one of my friends brought me a huge Easter Egg made from sugar and it had a sweet scene inside! Great story!
Glad you liked it. 🙂
I love this! It’s such a positive, vivid image. I love to learn from other writers, and it’s amazing how you capture the entire moment in only a few words!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment.
Happy New Year!
You too. Thanks for commenting.
