Fairy Tale Friday

This week's collection is Folk Tales from Tibet, with Illustrations by a Tibetan Artist and Some Verses from Tibetan Love-Songs, collected and translated by Capt. W.F. O'Connor.
I recommend The Story of Room Bacha and Baki.  It has themes from the story The Giant Who Had No Heart in his Body.

This is What 61 Looks Like

It looks sweet!

Thanks to Sue, whose first cake broke in pieces.  Determined that I should have a beautiful birthday cake, she made another (pictured above).
