White Wednesday and a Birthday Chandi


My birthday last week was looking low key.
The man of the house was out of town on a business trip.
No biggie, I'm a big girl, I can spend my birthday alone.


But every night while he was away, he would call me,
ask what room of the house I was in,
then send me on a treasure hunt.


He had hidden small presents for me open around our home.
Awe...what a guy!

He also hid a BIG box in his office and my beloved shabby chandi was in it!!
I have wanted one forever and now it's hanging in my studio.
I haven't added the candles yet because I like it the way it is, for now.



I did take the day off work for my birthday and what a full day it was.
Antique shopping and lunch with two good friends.


Then home to play in my studio for the rest of the day! 


I tried some new photo shots with my antique French fabric flowers.




I created a few lace pocket holders.

More friends stopped over...you girls are so nice - you know who you are.
(more on those sweet presents later)

Merci to the man of the house, family and friends for making me feel like a queen!

    All around the world us ladies are swooning at the sight of your shabby chandi. If you ever become bored with it (!) it would look so perfect in my newly decorated boudoir.
    The lace pocket is so divine.
