Special Day!

Today is a special day for me as I turn a year older!  Even though it's rainy and grey here, I have enjoyed a lovely time with my hubby and my three kids.

I received this lovely old red lantern candle holder from hubby - he knows I love collecting lanterns!

From my sister-in-law I received some sweet things including this wooden pumpkin and now sits in my shelf with other autumn decorations.  Love it!

My dear daughter made us all my favourite chocolate cupcakes (instead of cake) and I have indulged in one (or two)!!! and found them delectable!

So I have been well and truly spoiled and enjoying every moment!

Best wishes and thanks for coming by!
Wish I could share some tea and cupcakes with you too!
