So, Friday was my birthday. We have been so busy having fun that I have only just got round to showing you some of my beautiful pressies.
John gave me 24 botanical prints of plants endemic to St Helena. I have been after some botanical prints to decorate our kitchen at home for ages. Since in fact we went into a little Italian restaurant in Covent Garden about four years ago and there were some on the wall.
Anyway, I love them and they will be a fabulous souvenir of lovely St Helena.
I also received some lovely thoughtful gifts from friends here. This beautiful necklace was made specifically to go with my fav red spotty dress that was a charity shop find that I sliced the bottom off and put darts in the back of.
It is made of hand made beads. I am working on a post to show you these properly because they are easy peasy and totally gorgeous.
Lastly another island friend gave me a tomato seedling. The girls here know me so well already!
Maybe beads tomorrow...
