It's My Jet Lag and I'll Cry if I Want To


Its my Birthday today and I thought I would attempt to blog a few of my Birthday treats before I fall asleep, the only thing keeping me going at the moment is the coffee I seem to be mainlining, though hopefully soon I will be adding birthday cake to my sugar and caffeine intake. As you can see from the first image I got some beautiful leather notebooks for my birthday, the top one M got me (after several not to subtle hints) its from ArtisanGraham, the middle is an eco friendly nkuku, and the bottom one is a soft recycled leather journal from Barnes and Noble's that I bought myself along with a couple of novels. I really did need a new notebook and now I quite happily have three.

The next three items are gifts from my dad (my mother bought me clothes and a cute pair of polk-a-dot sketchers). The first item was a pendant made from a slice of a mastodon's tusk that will be the focal point of a beaded necklace. A lovely little vintage drawing and painting book , and a pretty little stone box.

The last item pictured is an agate pendant, that M bought me in San Francisco. It just looks like the ocean to me and makes me think of Bodega Bay. Frizbe dropped by with the girls this morning and brought me some lovely little birthday muffins, a little purple purse she knitted, and some lovely hair things too. I would feel spoiled if I wasn't so jet-lagged.

ooooh I'm so jealous of your beautiful notebooks! I have a real weakness for them, especially leather ones ... sigh! And I love your pendants, particularly the agate one, fabulous colours!

Hope you get over the jet lag soon ;-)

Happy Birthday!
I love those notebooks. In particular the middle and top one.

They will last forever and look even better when they're aged!

Those notebooks are FAB. I got a leather journal from etsy for my brother's christmas present - but was so tempted to keep it for myself!!!

It's good to have you back in Blighty, hope you get over the jet lag soon! (fancy a trip out soon????) xxx
oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!
