Yesterday was my birthday and I was thoroughly spoiled. I had a lovely day with family, eating nice food, chatting and taking Josh out for a lovely long walk with my mum and her dog.
My lovely girl had some wonderful surprises for me. Another deliciously smelling Yankee Candle and a gorgeous Emma Bridgewater mug. Unbeknown to me she sneaked back to Hope and Greenwood when we were in london a few weeks ago whilst I was busy trying clothes on in another shop. She bought me the lovely tea towels in their new design and also the fab 'Life Is Sweet' book.
It is full of delicious recipes for old fashioned sweets as well as gorgeous photos using lots of vintage tins and other vintage items to show off the mouthwatering sweets and chocolates.
She also treated me to these gorgeous Cath Kidston tins I had admired the last time we were in the shop. As I said I have been well and truly spoiled.
From Mr C I had this lovely Per Una linen coat I have had my eye on for a few weeks. The photo really doesn't do the colour justice.
He also bought me this gorgeous fabric covered hat box. I love hat boxes and when we were out on Friday I had spotted this and reluctantly walked away convincing myself that I didn't need it. He had sneaked back and bought it for me when I was in another shop and I am so pleased he did.
It came from a beautiful shop called 'Home and Colonial' in Berkhamsted but more about that in my next post.
The little dogs and the Robert Opie book were from my mum and dad. I am not sure of the maker of the dogs but wondered if they might be Sylvac. They have no name on the bottom just a number. If you have any idea please let me know.
