~Oscar Night and Simple & Sweet Fridays #52~

Stan and I were invited to a good friend's Oscar Party.
I thought it would be fun to bring some cupcakes.
A little silver and white edible glitter
 to make the cupcakes sparkle.
Let Us Eat Cake!
It went with the Oscar Theme.
My mother gave this mink to me on my 40th birthday.
She loved watching the Oscars and we would always talk afterwards
 about all the stars and what they were wearing.
Maybe that's why I love the Awards. Watching all the old actors,
 Audrey Hepburn, Gary Cooper, Cary Grant loved them all. 
We had a wonderful night with our friends!

Happy Thursday everyone!
