March Photo Challenge - Days 13-15

So I came on here to add yesterday's photo and realised that I never did catch up! Oops. So, now you get two posts full of photo fun!

Day 13 - prompt: glow

I call this one "Kitty Rave". Just look at his eyes when he's staring at it! He followed me around the house for about an hour after I put it away. It's not as epic as I was hoping, but the pics that I took of the two of them in the dark room just didn't turn out - but I thought that this was pretty cute anyway.

Day 14 - prompt: design

When we bought our house three years ago, it was designed in the style of 1980's elderly. Every room had wallpaper and old, stained carpeting. Ok, the bathroom didn't have carpet, but it had a wonderful 1980s lino which had seen better days. The first room we went after was the bathroom. We pulled up the lino, tore down the wallpaper (yep, even wallpapered in the bathroom), and then started fixing and making it pretty. I picked out these tiles for the walls. We did a beige 12x12 tile on the floor and these 8x8 tiles on the walls to about 4 ft up from the floor. My father-in-law laid all the tile himself and I did all the grouting. I was so thrilled with the end result. I still love the tiles today, nearly two years after we did it ... which is good because he keeps telling that "those tiles aren't coming off, you're going to have to take the drywall and everything off if you change your mind!"

Day 15 - prompt: build

Yes, I know, the prompt was build, not bake, but here's the thing. Ever since I was a small child, I have always referred to making a cake as building a cake. Don't know why... the baking process always feels like a massive undertaking to me and in the end I've built something. So the other day I had to "build" a cake for a school function. I thought that it looked quite pretty. It was a yummy berry creamsicle flavour with a berry topping and graham cracker crust.



It looks like he's a kitty Jedi. :)

The cake looks wonderful!
