The day is over
What a colorful day I've had! Don't you just love my flowers? I woke up not so hot this morning, but everything ended up ever so lovely, I couldn't be happier with how my birthday went.
Around 3:30 I came home from a thrifting adventure to find these lovely flowers wrapped all nicely for me and an icecream cake! I am a HUGE flower fan (like any girl, right?). I get excited receiving any flower possible, especially in my favorite flower colors (deep reds/oranges & purples along with muted greens) UGH, so pretty. I am also a huge fan of anything sunflower. ha.
As the day progressed I kept hearing little humming songs from my mom and christian.. In the tune of, oh... "I know something you don't know" I had a clue that my best friend Bruklyn had something up her sleeve, I just hadn't any idea of what! Well, boy was it something!!
Around 9:20pm she shows up at my door and tells me to go out of the room.. I had no idea what was going to happen! A little time went by and she came to get me.. As I walked into the living room I saw the PERFECT gift ever!!
a large cheval mirror! I have wanted one of these things for years! They are so timeless and beautiful.. I'm going to feel like a princess every time I look in the mirror.
After being fully shocked and amazed by this, I went into the kitchen where two beautiful, floral wrapped, (of course) gifts laid on the counter. More gifts!?
First off, I opened one of our favorite vintage games ever, Pit! I absolutely love this game.. If you haven't played, I suggest you log onto etsy or ebay right now and purchase it yourself.
secondly was this book called "Flowers" I have been eying this book for a couple months now ever since I saw it. It's full of floral design, botany plates and much, much more!
This amazing gift was from both Bruklyn and Christian. They do a lot of secret planning for my birthdays.. It never fails to amaze me!
Oh, did I fail to mention that Bruklyn made me a Pumpkin Cheesecake!? Uh yeah, she seriously did.
Besides all of the birthday shenanigans, I was able to fit in a small photoshoot of some new items for the shop. Who ever said you weren't supposed to work on your birthday? (;
I know the day has come to quite an ending.. I just don't want to sleep yet!
I have got a full day ahead of me.. So, I must wrap this little birthday post up.
Until next time lovelies,
