Thank you for all the birthday wishes!
As usually, I was completely and utterly spoiled.
First… I spoiled myself (Ever since I’ve had money to do so, I always buy myself a birthday present.
And… it’s usually shoes…
I’ve needed a pair of simple, but decent, black slip-ons for ages, so I decided to splurge a little and get myself some loafer mocs from my favourite moccasin place. I used to wear this style all the time as a kid.
And… since I could save an additional $10 if I bundled with a pair of slipper mocs…
Can you say toasty toes???? That’s real rabbit fur around the ankle too. SOOO soft!
Mom gave me a fat quarter bundle called Mod Cats
I’d actually bought a yard of the black cat fabric from the same collection so it was kind of serendipity! I can’t wait to play with these ones!
She also sent me a gift card for Home Depot which she really shouldn’t have – the fabric was more than enough! (Though you can bet it will be put to good use!)
And Dave really outdid himself this year. I don’t think I ever showed it, but last year he bought me a beautiful silver and ruby earring and necklace set. Its in a gorgeous vintage style, and I just love it. Well this year, he bought the ring that matches..
The pictures really don’t do it justice. It’s just stunning.
Sadly, I didn’t get my cake or Chinese food. I tried to get a cake on grocery day, but the girls working the bakery counter were too busy socializing to serve me, so I gave up and left without one.
And since I’d done such a big shop last week, the house was loaded with food. It seemed silly to go out and buy more. I made a nice roast beef, and told Dave we’ll save the Chinese for when the fridge is almost empty.
I did get lots of time to sew though. More on that will come this week!
