what i got for my brithday :)

hello all :)
thought i`d show you some of my fab prezzies i had for my birthday, some were bought for me and some i bought myself with my birthday money.
so the first pic, no i`ve not gone mad but honestly this is the best birthday present ever, my little mans first ever visit to the seaside and he was so excited and this is him with his shoes off running to the sea.the look on his face was just priceless and if there is one moment of my holiday that i will treasure, its this one.not sure if i`ve got this right but this is the beach at burnley -on -sea near burgh island?
so these are the lush crafty goodies.
some of these were off my bezzy crafty buddy lizzy,some were bought from crafty emmas in plympton and a few bits from chaplins and buyologly also in plympton.the rest i brought when i got home yesterday from garners in newcastle under lyme:)


some more goodies.i received the beautiful fairy plaque and bookmark from my sister and she also bought me a belt and wrist band thingy :)
i bought the gorgeous resin necklace from a little jewellers in plymouth where i also got my lush goodies.i love lush products and i don`t treat myself often enough as i have to travel to the shop near us.

a close up of my necklace, the piccy really doesn`t show up the gorgeous colour very well.
i have also been treated today to 2 new books, a karin slaughter one and another james patterson one plus a fab slouchy jumper from my hubby for our anniversary.i`ve also had chocolates and 2 other necklaces and perfume.i`ve been really spoilt.
the best pressie though was seeing my family.my sister and aunty and there families both live in devon and cornwall now and its the 1st time we`ve been down to see them.
although the gifts are gorgeous and will be well used and very appreciated :), the time spent with my family and my little mans excitement at the beach are the ones that really make me humble and grateful for all i have :) and give me that warm fuzzy feeling.lol.
ttfn
off to try and make a card.
luv coops xx
