I'm not sure about your part of the world but in Naphill yesterday it was sweltering. But that made it great party weather. Not a day to sit in a traffic jam and due to this I sadly missed out on a friend's wedding. Obviously yesterday was a very special day - two friends got married and one gave birth!
Firstly I'll just show you what darling Tam from A Treasured Past sent me
it's a beautiful necklace - one of her amazing stamp jewellery collection - this is one of her many Japanese stamps! Go look at her other work!
Then I got a wonderful parcel of joy of Circus Ringmistress Desiree
Number one was this amazing Sassy Vamps headband (I added a couple of butterflies, hope you don't mind Des!)
She also sent this gorgeous crisp cool orange dress - with a great dagger collar
I'm still knackered from yesterday...
and this sexy blue gyspy dress
ooh and this gorgeous ring
On my birthday morning I also got a parcel of love from the Queen of The Jumble
plus a hilarious card which I forgot to photograph!
My birthday went thusly
having got changed out of my wedding outfit, I was just so hot that I put my hair up and my coolest clothes on. We played a bit of boule, ate some food, drank some iced tea made from posh tea bought with Lakota and some punch
|playing boules, amazing flump marshamallow ring from my sister, grumpy hot dog, my sister and another grump hot dog|
I was sharing the day with my dad as it's his 60th next week and he'll be away, so most of the guests where his, though I knew them all. I had a couple of my own friend's round
|fur baby, lovely Steph stealing my headband, Lisa and her boyfriend, my 3rd cousin Angie, sporting a gypsy dress with blonde hair, we're so alike!|
|playing giant connect four, dad opening the electric guitar I bought him, me lounging|
mucking about with Mike's bubble maker bought at Wilderness (see this post for more fabulousness)
|Aunt's amazing legs (she's over 60) with fantastic 80s shoes, me pinning up my skirt using a brooch given by other aunt, sister's amazing Pheasant print dress, Monty getting more attention|
So later I tried the shisha pipe brought along by my cousin (the one in the gypsy dress)
I also took a photo of a recent ebay purchase - a silk bolero
The evening ended in a drunken impromtu photo shoot
Just a quick note on my presents - I was thoroughly spoilt! But I do have to show you a video of these hilarious wind up toys Mike's bro and sister in law gave me!
Mike bought me amongst other things - the Bandai Badge Maker - which I've just used and it's amazing!!
my first badge!
ps - in case you were wondering - I'm 31 - arghhhh
Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes! It means a lot, especially those of you who made me feel so special!
