Happy Birthday Elvis!

My husband honors Elvis with his "Pop Art"*

All that above is affixed to the Elvismobile below ...

What would Elvis say, indeed!

*He's adopted that term, because our sons call him "Pop."

It's my birthday!

How did 50 years go by so quickly?
Today I'm 71. In the photo on the right I was 21. It seems a short time ago that picture was taken. The young me seems to be looking on the older me with amusement.

"Love Me Tender Souvenir Fork"           14"x14" - 2004

I made this piece as a result of a  of cake themed round-robin exchange with SMQ's Thursday Bee group. It began with my slice of plain chocolate cake on the plate with the plaid table cloth. The fork plus its embroidery, raspberry filling, frosting, and whip cream were added by my friends. I finished it off with the raspberries and gold border mat. 

Seems as though it was a much shorter time than nine years ago that it was made. Time flies when you're having fun!
