Double blessing!

This week I celebrated my birthday, I share this day with someone very special...my Mum!
We gave Mum some money towards a new Bernina sewing machine and the children gave her a stitchery she had eyed up! Hmm I wonder how they knew? And Mum bought me this...
Now this isn't just any old iron, it is a small iron and just for me! I will be using it in my sewing room, a pressing board will follow shortly, that is when I get around to making it;)

DH took me shopping today for my birthday, I bought several new skirts, a new cardie, and spent some me time in a fabric shop with a 50% off sale, dangerous stuff!!! I was a bit disappointed with what they had but managed to come home with a couple of pieces of fabric!!!
I will take photos later as I really can't be bothered right now;)
But I will show a couple of photos of a house we saw on our travels, whoever she is must love colour!!!
Close up of the letterbox...
A mannequin to greet the guests...
Not really my cuppa tea, but I must admit the colours aren't too bad!

Tomorrow I really must catch up on some housework, boring I know but it must be done!

How great you get to share your day with you mom. Nobody more special, well other than your daddy :o) That is a very strange house for sure.

Wow that's a letterbox!! When we were looking for a new letterbox recently we were complaining about how boring the selection was but I didn't quite think of anything like that.
Love your blog, glad I found it!
