Birthday Treasures

Things have been a bit quiet on the blog front this week because I turned another year older on Monday. I had a lovely time out during the day with my bestie Miss J at the WAC for some lunch & a browse at the treasures for sale. Then my parents came over for tea & we had a quiet night in. I thought I'd better show you just some of the lovely gifts I received. I know some people aren't into the "look what I got" posts, so I'll try to be selective! Thank you to my girlfriends & family who know my tastes pretty well!

 My Mum gave me this super colourful handmade vintage bag found at a Nambour op shop. 
Isn't it a beauty!!??

 Along with a bird vase & sugar bowl
All op shopped of course!

 And some funny little bird figurines in their original plastic domes.

 Miss J gifted me this beautiful old domino set with dove-tailed details.

Plus a super kitsch embossed deer plate from West Germany. She has a matching one, both from a local garage sale.

 My dear friend Miss G made me this noteboard with fabric & ribbon. I've pinned some brooches on it for now. Plus my first Johnson saucer, & a teeny tiny vintage locket & earing set.

 From Mum....a gorgeous old amber brooch from a Sunshine Coast op shop
And a pretty hand knitted bed jacket

 A funky apron top from Miss J, plus a cardboard stag head from Typo.

I caught up with my lovely friend Miss C yesterday, & her gorgeous gifts included these beauties. An old Avon deer perfume bottle, & a blingy orange bangle.

If you follow my Facebook page, you'd know that my little girl shoes arrived from Clarks this week. They are literally for girls but I do have teeny feet. I was debating over the red or yellow ones for summer, but seeing as my very first pair of shoes were patent red it wasn't that hard to decide.


  1. Happy Birthday! Looks like you received some wonderful presents and that your loved ones know you well! My favourites are the locket and earrings set and that pretty pink cardigan. Beautiful!

  2. Happy Birthday! As much as I hate getting older I do love all the goodies you get and you look like you scored big time!

  3. Hello lovely. So pleased that you had a wonderful birthday and love each one of your pressies. My faves the locket and earrings and the stag head, but also love the bag your mum gave you. You have been spoilt and its obvious that your ftiends know you very well. I hope you're not too exhausted from all the celebrations. Best wishes for a wonderful and healthier year!! Xo

  4. Happy Birthday for Monday! It looks like you got some great presents. I love getting op shopped gifts. Your girl's shoes are fabulous. I have tiny feet too. I bought a pair of boy's sneakers the other day because the smallest women's pair was too big for me.

  5. Happy birthday week! You got some fab things, your friends and family have got your taste down to a tee! Those Clarks' shoes rock! xxx

  6. Happy birthday! I love the look what I got posts, especially when it includes those cute bird figurines in the domes - adorable.
