Was I born before the world wars ended?

Um, no! But my eldest daughter obviously required some clarification on exactly HOW old I am, as this is the question I was asked on my birthday yesterday!

Aside from the awkward questions, I had a very lovely day.....lunch in Nando's then a trip to my first ever Cath Kidston shop, dinner out with my hubby and then to the picture house. Spoilt I was indeed!

I didn't get any presents this year, I had asked for money towards my sewing machine, but I did allow myself a little treat


Tea towels on the left for me and napkins on the right for my mum, all to be turned into cushions. It is Mum's birthday in 2 weeks and I think the only thing on my FAL list I haven't started, now I have a plan I just ahve to make them!

Today I finished off my little extra for my BQS parcel, just in time too. I made up the sweet Zakka coin purse, I know I am going to have to make another for myself, I love this size!



I think this will make a great go-to present as well with the frames only costing £2.85 inc postage on ebay, brilliant!

I am off to the post office in the morning with my parcel, watch out partner ;-)

Happy Birthday!

My son and I share a birthday - this year he was 5 and I was 39. When I told him he screwed up his face and told me that was really, really old - cheers sweetie!

Love the purse!

Happy Birthday! Kids are a great leveller aren't they!? Great CK purchases. I'm lucky that I'm quite near a CK outlet store - goodies a fraction of the usual shop prices.

How about the Vietnam war? ;o)

Love the wee purse, and looking forward to seeing what you turn the CK stuff into!

This little purse is absolutely darling and a perfect present for young and old alike. Love it.

Happy Birthday!
The little ones at school often ask questions like that, I think they just see everything as "a long time ago" and all of us as "old"!
Those tea towels and napkins will make wonderful cushions, what a great idea.
Love the little purses too, would you mind telling me the name of the Ebay seller you get them from, I've been having trouble finding some

Happy birthday. And if you were born before the War, then I was born in the Bronze Age - and that sucks!

Happy Birthday!! Love the idea about the tea towels making cushions & have spotted some pretty rose patterned ones in Asda which will look lovely in my kitchen.
