Celebration

Thanks to my friends Maddy and Mat and my partner Martin - the three M's!! I celebrated a memorable birthday a few weeks ago with an evening of laughs, singing, great food and company (I tried to post this at the time, but have had trouble with the photo uploads - anyone else?).
Gorgeous vase from Maddy, Mat and Ash
My beautiful friend and her family gave me this gorgeous vase and a lovely scarf (I am obsessed with scarves). The arrangement is from our wild terrace garden!! A gardener I am not.

                                                                 Happy Birthday to Me



Mat made this beautiful lemon tart, which we enjoyed with a cointreau

As we always do after enjoying a few wines, we rug up and venture for a 'night walk' and sit by the rose bush to look at the stars. As you do!!

M and Me
Maddy, M and Mat and Riley the lab
I have a lot to post about to catch up, so will put up a few thrifty finds - have found many so lots of projects to come.
Enjoy your week.

  14. Happy belated Birthday Rebecca!
    Oh, and that picture of you and your M., it looks so romantic (and the space you have to walk in the night, pretty cool, since we don't have that kind of open space here).
    Hope you will enjoy the memories from that day, and glad you posted again!
