What's my age again?!

I'm drinking to YOU lot!
You're all so marvellous; I've had such a wonderul birthday, and I'm sure it was mostly due to all your fabulous birthday wishes!
We had a splendid Thai dinner last night, and the burlesque show was STUPENDOUS!
I was so excited, and probably looked like a dim fish the whole time!!!
Um, I managed to forget to get an outfit pic, but I wore:
Frock-70's booboid enhancing maxi, opshopped
(Couldn't find the frock I wanted to wear, must be in the garage!)
Jewellery-all from G!
Bow from Sarah

Today, after a pleasant lie in, and then reading on my new kindle (!) we went out to visit the gorgeous Two Squirrels!
(Warren, yeah, the link isn't working right now!)
Warren has changed their site to a .com, and seems to be having the same issues La Dama did!
I'm sure he'll get it all hunky dory before the weekend is out.
They will be closing their shop Feb 5th, so if you're a local, go on out there and pillage!
In March they will be opening their online shop!
All is not lost!
My new friend Anissa was also out there.
She's a hottie!
Sweetheart Vanessa gave me a gorgeous So Obviously Rex handbag!!!
All together now:
It is in immaculate condition, and with original tags!
And I bought this fantabulous wicker 50's fishie bag!!!
O, and here's a close up of my tooled leather bag G got me!!!
It's a bag fest!

I've just woken up from a nana nap, and am feeling a bit vague....
Nix and Si are coming over for a bbq and a jam, so I better get my shit together!
I'll be round to visit all you divine peeps tomorrow!
I love you all, and want to tkae you out into a big field, lay you down in the grass, and make wild, passionate love to you ALL!

Oh lordy... that fish bag is AMAZING!!!!!! Best bag I think I've ever seen. I'm so sad that i won't be able to visit the two squirrels store before they close down, it was definitely on my 'to-do' list! By the way that orange and turquoise combination that you had on, on your birthday looks stunning, those colours are brilliant on you.

Trees said...

That orange frock is AMAZING - I love it. Also that fish bag is so amazing!! Do let us all know when the two squirrels website is up online!

Miss Claire said...

Gah! Happy Birthday you gorgeous soul! I wish I could've given you a great big hug in person, but a virtual one will have to do. Also, chomby sends a little dig in your lap. Dig dig dig dig! It's bags galore and I love them ALL! Especially the fish with the fin hanging off the bottom-so cool! I wonder if you can dangle things off it...So much love you yoooou Xoxoxox

Oh darling - both frocks are SPLENDID - that sundress makes me SWOOOOOON! The tooled bag is absolutely exquisite - do NOT bring it here or it will, uh... be confiscated by Border Security...

So glad you had such a wonderful birthday.

OMG OMG OMG!!! All the handbags are amazing and what a beaut that fishy bag is but the best has to be your new birthday bag - it's so gorgeous.. REALLLLLYYY gorgeous!

What I would give to visit a vintage shop like that! There is a severe lack of them in my area *unhappy face* I do hope their online shop will be shipping abroad coz I'd love to have a nosey!

The 2nd dress is lovely - I especially love the bust on it and eeeek, I see your new skull necklace!

Enjoy your BBQ! xxx

You look magnifique in orange, Helga! So glad you had a wonderful birthday.
Aahh, the Squirrel Nest looks so pretty and packed with gorgeous treasures, I would so love to have a look around.
And your new Rex is a beauty - try NOT to wear this one to a stump! As for the fish bag - amazing. You must have the best bag collection in the world!
Hope having such a lovely time has banished some of the doom. You're WAY too marvellous to feel doom-laden! xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Dammit that little shop looks so cute. I wish I wasn't so far away in Canada from it... Cause it looks like the kind of place I would LOVE TO FREQUENT weekly.
