Birthday presents......

Each year my good friend Chrissy over at the theapothacaryshop.blogspot.com and I exchange birthday gifts.  We get together for a cup of tea, a chat and a blather, as she would say and after her husband finally left the room she let me open my gifts.  She gave me the most beautiful things that I thought I would share with all of you.


















this beautiful crown, a perfect compliment to my little white coffee table.......

                                                      
                                                           this beautiful picture.......























and finally this beautiful tea towel, she knows me so well!
thanks Chris:)

As a final note, I woke up this morning to find these in bloom.  If felt like a spot of spring on a cold blustery day and appropriate for White Wednesday!  Happy day everyone xo

I love when a friend knows you so well that they give you gifts you LOVE! And I adore Chrissy's blog. The crown and tea towel look perfect in your home and I am so happy your paper whites bloomed. I still haven't gotten any! Soon, soon.

Hope you are having a happy week! :-)

XO,
Jane

Oh I love to hear about a good friendship. What a lovely gift you got from her!! Very beautiful. Chrissy is such a friendly woman, give her a huge hug from me as well :) It is still very good weather in Canada I just heard. I thought you might have snow already as we have. Your white flowers are lovely. Love them white also :)

Have a nice evening,
Aina
