Happy Birthday Michelle. I think I'll go with 28 too. You don't look 8 and you certainly don't look 80 so it must be 28. xoxox

A very Happy Birthday to you, Michelle! The portrait of you with Cake is a beautiful image.

I believe you share your birthdate with the marvelous artist Gustav Klimt. July 14 was also my Dad's birthday, so I think that you are in wonderful company.

Happy Birthday Michelle,
Just found your blog and mighty glad I did.
I LOVE that ruffle cake - how on earth was that made? It's by far the prettiest I have ever. I can't even fathom what it was made with. Can you reveal?
Think I sussed your age with the candles. 4 on one side and 4 on the other. Is that right? If so, you look younger than that. Younger than me and I am 36. So there!
Loving your cardie, like your style girl!
Mr Hare is very cute, I love receiving gifts like that!
Have a wonderful day (but am wondering how one actually slices that cake?)
Gem x x
