The big Four-O

The consolation for turning 40 was obviously the fabulous presents I received which included beautiful scarves, perfume, notebooks, a bucket-barbecue and picnic rug, earrings, a Cath Kidston wallet........
............Colonsay inspired goodies and a handmade clay tile from Daisy............

 ..............my beautiful Cath Kidston tapestry from Dot and some dinosaur decorations with Colonsay pebbles from Fred...............

..........some lovely "home" decorations.........

  

...............a beautiful cushion, purse, bracelet and corsage from the fabulous Mrs Moogs........

  

  
..........and my very own wool-winder and swift!

But one very special birthday present went on a very special journey to reach me in time for my birthday..........
....you may recognise the little bird drawn on the envelope..........
....Yes! It's a parcel from the one and only Silverpebble containing a super-special commission from Mr Locket and the Little Lockets.  

Emma had contacted Mr L to say that the present would be posted in time for my birthday but when she realised that we were actually going on holiday before it could arrive she did the necessary detective work to contact the lady in charge of the post office on the island to arrange for it to be posted to me at Kiloran Bay Cottage, Colonsay!

So I expect you are interested to see what was inside???



A special Emma Pebble box of course!

And inside that?


My very own, specially-designed-for-me, Silverpebble necklace with a seagull, bucket and spade, sandcastle, shells and sea-glass - and I LOVE it!  I wear it all the time and always get complimented on what a unique piece of jewellery I have.  I don't have Emma's skill in photography but I think you can still see how stunning it is!

So turning 40 wasn't all that bad really! ;o)

Happy Birthday, Lucy! (Somewhat belatedly, I think, but apparently you had a very happy birthday indeed.) Nice to be loved a lot and spoiled a bit :)

Turning 40 suddenly seems a lot more palatable! You look to have been deservedly spoiled (quite right too!)

Oh, you lucky thing. I would say you lucky old thing but that would be rude (and I'm older than you so I'm allowed to make age jokes ;-)

Glad it was such a lovely day!

Belated birthday wishes Mrs Locket (I'm so behind on my blog reading!). You have such a selection of wonderful gifts there, but my fave has to be your necklace from Emma. Lovely indeed.
