I celebrated my 32nd birthday on Saturday.
Funny, that number sounds bigger when I see it in print than it does when I say it!
My husband handed me a Starbucks gift card and took the little boys so that I could have the entire day to myself. What a luxury!
I headed out the door early to shop a couple of estate sales!
Have you seen these cute little pink frosted donuts at Starbucks? I think they're actually called birthday cake donuts! They are sort of a birthday breakfast tradition for me. Healthy, I know! More than anything, I think they're just pretty, and a fun and frivolous birthday treat!
Estate sale shopping was fun, and I brought home quite a few treasures, many of which you will be seeing very soon! This sweet little wooden dollhouse is one treasure that I am planning to keep!
I have always wanted a doll house and this one is such a nice size, and I adore the tiny scalloped wood shingles!

I've always thought that it was a bit sad that I share my birthday with the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic (and Lincoln's assassination!). It just worked out this year though, as Solanah of Vixen Vintage was hosting a lovely Titanic Tea! My mom and I dressed up in our prettiest, vintage looking attire and had a wonderful afternoon at the Grant House at Fort Vancouver. If you love vintage clothing, you will adore Solanah's blog! She is such a sweetie too, and her tea party was a lot of fun! There were some amazing costumes at this event and the venue was wonderful!
It was a perfect mother/daughter birthday outing!
Later that evening, my husband and little boys met me at home with a takeout dinner, so I didn't have to do any cooking or kitchen cleaning on my birthday! How thoughtful!
A special birthday present arrived in the mail this week! My dear friend Jessica made this sweet pink felted wool handbag just for me! Isn't it adorable? I love the color and the darling row of handmade rosettes! Jessica recently opened an Etsy Boutique, Made By J where she sells her lovely creations! Thank you for such a wonderful and meaningful gift, Jess! I will treasure it!
I hope to have more projects to share with you soon!
Have a fabulous weekend!
