Today is my birthday!
This is my favourite photo from Christmas Day, today the weather has not been so nice.
The plan was to party at the beach but that has been put off until tomorrow.
I've had a lovely day, in spite of the rain and howling wind, and received some spectacular gifts!
This beautiful notice board was made by Sabiha.
It's real life size in case you're wondering!
This fabulous cushion cover came from Sylvia.
Liberty is enjoying the cushion too!
And from hubby...a funny little table.
I know you're wondering what sort of husband gives his wife a table like that?!
Well...he found it on the side of the road the week before Christmas, lol!
He tried very hard to restore it before Christmas but didn't quite make it...
so, as times are tough, it became my birthday/Christmas gift.
I think you'll agree he did an awesome restoration job!
The table is an odd height - too high for a coffee table and too low for a hall table.
It has a drawer in each end.
The plan is to find some castors to give it a little more height.
We did see some castors today but they were $23 each, I just laughed as I left the shop!
I LOVE the way the tabletop has turned out!
The giant candlestick and little tin candlehouse were from Sylvia and the perfect bird candle came from my friend Freddy.
Beautiful glass cake stand came from my brothers wife and she made the most delicious hazelnut meringues.
I ate far more of those than I should have!
From one of hubby's sisters - some gorgeous coasters.
For Christmas hubby took Liberty to my favourite shop - Bed, Bath and Table - and let her choose a present for me. I drag Liberty into that shop far more often than she likes.
After considering everything in the shop Liberty carefully selected this tin sign.
She told her daddy she just knew I would LOVE it!
And I do love it, but even more so because it was specially chosen by her!
Thank you for all the birthday messages I have received, you've all made my day wonderful!
Now, I think I hear the last of those meringues calling me...
