The over-the-top birthday cake Peter brought to my parents'; my mother got out the picture taken at the Flower Fifth Avenue hospital when I was new-born.


Making a wish. I've had good luck with my wishes this year: in fourteen days I'll be in the Virgin Islands!


Couldn't quite finish this today ...

YUM! I'll trade you some of my spumoni ice cream if you'll give me a slice of that cake :)

Just found your blog, Laura. I very much enjoy it (from one fellow 50 year old to another). Love the birthday cake but the self-portrait in progress is stunning!

Happy Birthday, Laura. Have fun!

Love the before-and-after photos --these past 50 years have been good to you. And I don't think you have to finish the portrait (but you definitely need to finish the cake!) because it looks fantastic as is.

You are so on a roll, Laura! Wonderful portrait! And the cake is fabulous. Happy, Happy 50th! I'm excited for you that you're heading to the islands soon. Have a wonderful trip! I can actually recognize you in that baby photo--adorable even then.

Happy (belated) birthday Laura! Glad you are painting again, I've been enjoying all your recent posts. That's a pretty amazing cake. And your planned trip to sunshine and warmth sounds wonderful, too. Have a great time!
