green glass gorgeousness

Monday, 13 February 2012


It's my birthday this Sunday and I must be getting old because I always forget. Riley's birthday is two days before mine, so truth be told - all the focus tends to go on him {and his thrice-daily reminders that his birthday is coming}.

So today, I was intrigued to find a gift on my doorstep - and didn't even realise it might be a birthday present until I opened the card. Now, when a present comes from the Donna Hay General Store, you know you're in for a treat. When it comes from your dear Chicago-native girlfriend Teresa, you know you're in for an even greater treat!

And sure enough - this is what was inside . . .


Yes, there was lots of squealing going on! I'm most happily adding this beautiful bowl to my beloved collection of green milk glass, and I love it so much, I'll be keeping it awhile on my desk - right here next to me, as I type, and alongside my green glass jug toting iceberg roses from the garden.


Birthday bliss!

It looks a bit forlorn without being full of lollies! I dare you!

Lollies are a danger zone for me - cannot do! xx

Oh what a fantastic gift, building on the collection, isn't that what great friends do??!!
My husband has a birthday the same week as our first born, so he is the one reminding us it's his birthday as growing up, he never got a party or had a big deal about his special day, but we're making up for it.
Happy birthday, celebrations & gifts should last the entire month, that's right, they are!! Love Posie
