meet Anty

I just thought I would introduce you to Anty, it’s her birthday today!

Anty started life as an empty, folded, sipper straw packet, which just happened to fit neatly over my little girls finger and ~ ta – da ta – da ~ Anty was born. Don’t you just love how children can find characters and stories seemingly from nowhere!

Well anyway, ever since that first day, five days ago, my little girl has been planning a lovely birthday party for Anty, we just hadn’t had a chance to do it yet. In the mean time Anty 1 was left at Nonna's after a visit so there was another Anty, similarly made. Then, poor Anty 2 was accidentally thrown away by dad and she still hadn't had her birthday party yet!

So today, seeing we had time and we always love doing things together we decided to have Anty re-enter the world in style and give her a party she would be proud of and that’s what we did!
Enjoy her party photos! Hopefully you will feel like you were here celebrating with her.

Party friends - the purple spot is Anty's tattoo - " a balloon"

 My little girls very cleverly crafted pretend cake
But we made some cupcakes too

All in all, a lovely day had by all, and Anty is still smiling!  Even Dad came to Antys party!
We hope you enjoy it too!


  1. A lovely party! I'm glad you had a great day.

  2. This is so cute and clever--we'll have to try this one in our home!

    ...any excuse to make some cupcakes, right?


Thanks for visiting. Have a nice day!
