Today is my dad's birthday - Happy Birthday Dad! - so we're going for dinner tonight to one of my favourite restaurants for Vietnamese food. He's one of those difficult people to buy for, so usually I end up buying a bottle of gin, which I am sure he appreciates very much. If someone gave me a lovely bottle of Bombay Sapphire I'd be pretty happy!
And then tomorrow, of course, is Mothers Day, for which I am very unprepared. I have made a big pot of soup to eat tomorrow at my parents house, so that is a good step in the right direction I think. Must get cracking!
These are sweet little bobby pins I made for my cousin - I had SO much yellow satin leftover from her bridesmaid dresses (I didn't make them but I got the leftover fabric!). So last night I got busy and made these, it's extra lovely as the beads in the middle are from our Grandma's old necklace that started to fall apart. (If you can guess what the book is I'll be pretty impressed!)
I won't be making these little cuties to sell, but if you want something a little similar, check out lovely Natalia's shop, Realisation Creations.
