Over the weekend, I received a late birthday present. Who cares if it's 6 months late?? I'd celebrate my birthday everyday if I could! After all, the month of October is in fact My Birthday Month!

One of my sweet friends {Donna} called and asked if she could stop by. I said sure...as long as she didn't mind me still being in my pajamas enjoying the rainy weather. Little did I know she'd be walking in bearing gifts...2 beautiful boxes just for me!

Inside the beautifully botanical round papered box was a gorgeous beaded ribbon tassel in my favorite earth tone colors. A pack of liquid embossing which I can't wait to use and a precious rubber stamp! I love this stamp with the typewriter print background!

Oh and this box! I recognized the Anna Griffin print and I was tickled because I have keeping my eye on this set...

I love Anna Griffin and this is the most vintage inspired set that I have been longing for and now it's mine!!! For Real!!!

So here is my late birthday loot! I couldn't have received it at a better time, on such a relaxing weekend that I was able to play. with no commitments and no plans. just play in my play room. all weekend. in the rain. play. dream. create. play. play. play.

Thank you Donna! It's just perfect!
