50 and a giveaway

Today is my birthday .They had this wonderful pastry made for me.
Vatel it's called, named after the famous French 17th century maître d'hotel and chef.
Roland Joffé made a wonderful film about him titled 'Vatel' with Gérard Dépardieu and Uma Thurman.
The pastry itself is very delicious and one of my absolute favourites, it's made of a crunchy almond pastry and butter cream.
But as I can't offer you a piece of this sweetness I will have a giveaway.
You can choose between two of my prints.
'Talk to the birdman' or
'She knew a safe place to keep secrets'
Just leave a comment with the print of your choice.
I will draw a winner next monday.
Have a nice week and good luck to you all ,x
