Birthday Treats

I had a lovely birthday weekend, which was full of lots of wonderful surprises. I received some truly thoughtful gifts, I always appreciate the fact my friends and family know my tastes so well.

My beautiful and best friend Georgina sent me a handmade treat in the form of Peter Rabbit. I instantly fell head over heels for this delicate cross stitch design.

I’m finally nearly there with my Harajuku Lovers collection, and the fact they’ve now stopped making these, means I’m keen to make my collection complete.

I was also totally spoilt with a Cath Kidston gift card to spend on whatever I may desire, this means I’ll be able to save this for my next trip.

My wonderful pen friend Sophie sent me a gorgeous package with contents completely after my own heart, including this beautiful scarf.

My Mum spoiled me with this truly delicious Alice in Wonderland teacup and saucer! Of course I'll be having it on display, I can’t stop admiring the quirky detailing.

My gorgeous blogging buddy Kat sent me the most amazing tin; containing the sweetest correspondence set, she knows me far too well.

A belated birthday treat came in the form of a very large and ambiguous parcel from Alex. I don’t think I have ever received a parcel quite so intriguing before. The moment I spied Peter Rabbit and Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, I knew this was going to be something special...

A handmade creation, a cushion that has already found a place in my home.

Thank You for all the wonderful birthday wishes.
