fabulous gifts

22 Jun

Wow, everyone came out with some amazing gifts today for my birthday! I am so happy with them all!

First of all, my love bought me three delicious bottles of vino to start my longed for wine collection, consisting of 2 Campo Viejo rioja —  one dated 2002 — and a Berberana crianza. Mmmmm!

She addad to my knitting book collection with Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush and improved my garden experience with two sun loungers,

My wonderful family all sent me money towards my garden which I used to buy a chiminea

My incredibly talented sister Jen made me these ceramic buttons,

and my hilarious sister Jessica, who so gets my sense of humour, sent my a box of Tetley red bush(!) and a wine rack to hold my vintage wine collection!


A great day! Thanks, everyone!

    Those buttons look so cool!!!! She has to teach us how to do it — do you think she’d do a tutorial to post here? That would be awesome.

    The chiminea is so cute! I was expecting something huge, but it’s all wee and lovely! The screening looks fab, too. Well done with the garden!
