Happy Birthday to Me....


Happy Birthday to me...Happ    *screeeech*  Oh, wait....
it's not my birthday yet. It just feels like it is
because I got this Amazing package this morning!


This beautiful purse came today....for me!
All wrapped up and tied with a pink bow....a
birthday gift.....for ME......from ME!


How do I always know just what I want?


Beautiful millinery flowers.....


crochet over the softest straw pompoms....


It's perfect!


And....if that wasn't enough....another package
full of pretty pinkness arrived!

My very first vintage hat.


I bought it to 'pluck'....


but how can I 'pluck' all that prettiness?


So....I think it will be used for display.

After all, it is my first.



Wishing you a pretty pink day!

Fun stuff, Debi! Hee-hee! "How do I always know what I want?"

Pinkalicious!!! What a cute purse. Love the crochet and milinary flowers on it. That pink hat is awesome too. I'd hate to pluck the flowers from it as well, so I hope you keep it just for diplay.

Fun, fun, fun gifts for your soon to be birthday :) I have never had a vintage hat either, I can totally understand why you don't want to pick it apart, and the bag is darling !!!!!

You found the BEST hat!!

Utah Grammie said...

Beautiful! And, my dear, when IS your birthday??

Karen said...

LOL. That is so funny, I've now purchased FIVE cute little vintage hats to "pluck" and STILL cannot bring myself to do it. You have to buy old yucky ones to pluck. This one is just too pretty!
Loved this post. Purse is too cute!!! Such fun!

Sandi said...

Oh my goodness Debi! Love the purse and the hat!! I would definitely be plucking that hat though. I guess I have had so many old hats that I just pluck away. I do have a couple that I haven't torn apart yet though. lol
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you! I love buying my own presents too. That way I know I will get what I want. lol
Blessings~
