It was my birthday last week....
"Happy Birthday to me"
I turned 45, I hear that's the new 25...... well that's my story and I am sticking to it!!!
anyway, I had the best day, lots of cards and pressies and yummy food, champagne and the most to die for chocolate birthday cake, you might see a bit of it on my hips in the photo below!
My gifties, electric essential oil burner from Mummy, my fave Body Shop White Musk body lotion from Babes (flowers have dried up - literally!), Babes grandmother gave me money which I bought new clothes with, German exfoliating body mitt from my best friend Mary Thistle, the three pictures made by my clever MIL and the gorgeous cameo necklace from my special princess. That was just on the day.....
since then I have had a pamper pack of eyeliners, eye shadows, body scrubs and brushes from Babes Aunty and a book cleverly wrapped in calico from "my friend"
I do like birthdays that go on!!!
Among the boxes of stuff my friend Michael gave me, I found this fabulous vintage advent calender... click on the photo and you will get better detail, it is just wonderful, lots of glitter!
and these Easter decorations (are you drooling Bunny Rose girl?), the big egg is paper mache, fabulous!!!
So busy, getting the final part of my application done for university next year, lots of ongoing projects around the house that need to be finished and lots of selling on Trade Me.
I am selling my collection, ha ha, didn't even know I had one, of Rose books!!! I have about 30 of them!!!! Most are old, some are vintage and have the most fabulous prints and illustrations in them.
Anyone interested they are on Trade Me but you can contact me directly by email if you don't live in NZ or Australia.
Also selling some pretty cool stuff like these wooden Houses counters...
and complete boxed sets of Housee which I bought a few years ago to use in my creations and never had!!
Life is busy, life is good!!!
