Birthday Bliss



I decided to get dolled up for my birthday (which was January the 22nd) this year. This is a rarity, to be dolled up (it usually only lasts a few hours once a year), so I really got into the vintage vibe of the outfit & did a girly photo shoot. Above aptly captures my bliss.
Wearing: green Ellen Tracy dress that reminds me of classic movies & Mad Men; vintage bauble necklace; vintage green leather purse; vintage scarf.

Happily enough, I woke up to a sale on my Etsy shop, The Vintage Apartment. The mushroom teapot that was coveted sold!

My neighbour and good friend Desiree (So Fawned) popped over to wish me a happy birthday, and gave me a darling gift - she made me a French Press cozy!! I couldn't believe she'd done that! So lovely. I immediately put it on my dog Grace ... an odd thing to do? Well, yes. But it did fit her just right.
Note: I posted a separate entry dedicated to the cozy love, found here.

The next thing I knew it was nearly 2pm, and there was a freshly baked sour cream coffee cake awaiting this birthday girl! It felt like a very grown-up birthday cake... quite apropos!

But then, finally, I got to escape to my favourite restaurant Matsu Sushi where Mr Kim pampered me just right. I love the pistachio ice cream with a candle in it. The best is getting a polaroid photo taken on your birthday (okay, it's a Fujifilm not a Polaroid). I'm in quite a few of these polaroids in Matsu's photo albums!

Then I took Grace for a glorious sun-filled walk/run before retiring for the rest of the day.

I then got a surprise visit from my sweet friend Karen (The Messy Artist) , who gave me a delightful chipmunk-filled card & a wee gift. It completed my birthday bliss!

The rest of the night was spent watching classic movies.









Basically, a perfect day.
blissfully, & one year older (or is that younger?)
