Well as a lot of you know already yesterday was my birthday. I was........39 although my Mother In Law In Sin sent me a 40th card!! It wasn't her fault, she was told in error.
Anyway, I had a really fantastic day spent with my very own little family. We went to a Flea market and I bought BUTTONS!!! Lots of BUTTONS :) And then in the evening all my family came around for a wonderful party. I just wanted to show you a few of my gorgeous pressies.

So firstly, I was overjoyed when the Bunny Maker told me to pop to her shop and pick a pressie. I picked Spot but when he arrived he was NOT alone!! Out of this tiny pail jumped out ikkle stripey and some yummy carrots!

Next up are some pressies from my utterly wonderful mummy. All I can say is SHE KNOWS ME SO WELL! Much to the OH's disgust...he is not overkeen on my tastes.

I am a sucker for old tins so was pretty happy to receive this gift from my mother, but then it kept giving!! Opened it up and there was a gorgeous set of 6 rose glasses!

Next she gave me a 1950's flamingo!! How does she find this stuff...I love it so much.

Followed by a Vernon Ward painting of swans which I utterly adore.

I am in birthday heaven! OH is in Kitsch Hell Mwhahahahahahahaha

Argh Happy Belated Birthday. How did I not know it was your birthday.

I love the flamingo, your mum clearly has some secret places to buy that she isn't telling you about:)

Sorry I missed your birthday! I hope you had a fabulous day!

I am in love with the flamingo - possibly the most wonderful piece of kitsch kit I've ever seen!
