Blogtoberfest Day 7: Birthday Booty

My birthday came and went. I am now closer to 40 than 30. I'm OK with that. Rock and roll around here is not a mosh pit, it's more dancing to mary had a little lamb ... with butterfly dancing shoes - apparently the only kind you can dance in. Thought I would share some of the beautiful gifts which came my way ... lucky gal. Vintage tin (Loz brought it for me from here when my back was turned), beautiful vintage Owl salt and pepper shakers and a black eyed susie brooch, thanks Suse. A surprise gift from annie - her handmade soaps, and a gorgeous coconutty candle and some retro toes created by Peg and Kate... snazzy. And those apooki earrings? I won them in a giveaway and they arrived near my birthday - with hair clips - cool huh? I am also the proud owner of a shrug. I'm so foxy in it I have to beware of hunting dogs and riders in red coats ... more vintage finds soon x

Happy belated Birthday Gemma! I hope you like your new Old Tin - I so nearly told you about it! Anyhow I have heaps of news which I will get to putting on the blog soon and hopefully we will catch up at the market - it starts again this Sunday. Also we may not be in the same spot - in the same shed but you may have to search for us!
