Birthday weekend!

 Yes this weekend I celebrated my 45th birthday and I can't believe that so many years have flown by when I still imagine I'm in my mid 20's!!!! (Not when I look in the mirror though! lol!) 

My daughter took this pic on her phone at my mum's and of course the cake and candles had to be brought out!

This is my special birthday gift from hubby.  I love lamps and have always wanted one like this so he treated me when we were on holiday.... he's so good to me.

 It's black and I have placed it for now on the hall table.

This is another treat and something I happened upon by chance but instantly knew where it would go.
So this star shaped woven basket had to come home with me - if you know me you know I love all things star shaped!
I've place it on top of my kitchen wall cupboards and with some fall foliage I hope it'll look just the part this autumn.

So that was my weekend!  Lots of fun with family and good food of course!

Thanks again for all those who leave comments.  Its good to know you come and visit!

Best wishes
