Lovely things, lucky me!

So many lovely gifts for my birthday this year - thought I might flash a few - as well as the Australian Swappers Red swap (Ravelry) package which also arrived on my birthday - such good timing, swap pal!
Lots of lovely red goodies!
My mum embroidered this linen tea towel for me.
My workbuddy Sarah gave me this fab-o RoseRed ring! How cool is this!
Mmmmmm chocolates, silly dvds, yarny goodness, wish tickets (very cool!) and other lovely stuff.
From wonderful Bells - Knit So Fine, more yarny goodness (mmmm chocolate malabrigo sock yarn), tea and other good stuff.
And this fabulous card from Snoozen - look - those are all my shoes! It's amazing seeing them all together.

So lucky I was this year. Lots of things to be happy about, which is not always easy to remember, but which I've been reminded of lately.

That shoe card is awesome! What a great idea! And I love the tea towel, too! All of it actually - what a great haul for a great gal!

Ew. I hate the word gal. But you know what I mean.

From one scorpio to another, Happy Birthday! I never knew that we were so close in birthdays.
