Dear Friend,

I was thoroughly spoiled for my birthday this year and received many beautiful presents from family and friends. I wanted to share a few of these pretties with you.

From my family I got this beautiful Coro bracelet and earring set…which was on my (long) etsy wish list;

001 003

and this scatter pin set


and this beautiful dress;



My ‘glass slippers’ were also part of my birthday present from Prince Charming.


A lovely friend gave me these gloves (which match the dress perfectly)

014 015

and these pretty headbands


My Mum sent me these two very special books. One is a 1940-60’s napery book with gorgeous patterns and pickies of one ladies collection and the other is a CWA (Country Women’s Association) baking book. What makes the cookbook different is that it includes photos of CWA baking competitions throughout the decades. Photos include both the female judges and contestants over the years- it’s a treasury of everyday housewives’ clothes, hair styles and hats over the years.

I will be dedicating a whole post to this book later on…it’s too precious not to share!


These are only a few of the treasures I received (I told you I was thoroughly spoilt this year) and I want to send out a big kiss and thanks to everyone who made my Birthday so special!
