It's my birthday!

One of our family quotes was started by my sister, 37 years ago:

"It's mine birfday! Happy birfday to me!"

We're celebrating quietly, as Son 1 has his own birthday and, more significantly, his Brevet exams, coming up next week. There will be a birthday tea and presents at the end of a working day... and part of my present is already here - I shall tell you about that later!

I leave you with a photo of the vintage ticking I picked up the other day, having an (unsuccessful) try-out on our sofa (looked good but scrumpled up too quickly).

I also leave you with two lovely blogs featured in my favourite magazines this month:

Emma from Silverpebble who's been a blogging friend for years now - how lovely to see her and my little silver bird pendant (or one like it) in Country Living this month!

Jenny from The Custards - how can I have missed her blog up until now? Fortunately, Homes and Antiques rectified this terrible situation...

So, two presents for you, but:

"It's MINE birfday!

Happy birfday to me!"

Floss - I've just seen the news. I hope you and your family are OK. Toulouse seems to be having more than it's fair share of excitement! And, apart from that, I hope you have a lovely birthday.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Arggh, I should have remembered the date, I still have to smile and chuckle when I occasionally remember the birthday parties so many of us prepared for you in 2009. That was such a hoot. Have a wonderful day, and celebrate in style ( even if Kajagoogoo and Take That can't make it to your place this year ). xx

Forgot to say, I love the ticking you picked up, shame it doesn't work on your sofa. I know you don't have your shop any longer but if you want to sell it.......... x

Wishing you a very Happy Birthday...coincidentally, it's also my brother's birthday!

I confess I have bought the blueberries, but did not get to preheat that oven for muffin baking before the hot weather hit. So...it's blueberries and cream for now.
