This years birthday was different than the rest.
Since Miss Molly decided to give birth to her adorable little babes on my actual birthday, we decided to post-pone the festivities for a week. No big deal. It was easy to reschedule as all we were planning was dinner at a local restaurant and then back to our place for cake and puppy viewings.
This year, when asked what I wanted as gifts I seriously had no ideas to give people.
There wasn't anything specific that I wanted.
J had let me order some lovely bracelets online for a gift.
My sister pre-ordered me a book she knew I would love.
My other sister gave me some great bath products from Lush.
And my other sister said she was going to treat me to a pedicure when the weather is nicer so we could spend some time together.
And I asked my parents to give me some cash (like I do every year!)
I decided to use my birthday money for some art work for the living room.
We have lived in this apartment for almost 3 years and I have never found anything I liked for above our couch.
It was really starting to get to me.
Every time I walked into the living room it was like a giant canvas waiting for something to be placed on it.
I went to a local store, Homesense to wonder one day and say this awesome art combination that I could not take my eyes off. It was 5 photos in one. They are all similar but not the same, which I loved and as luck would have it, in my purse I had my couch fabric swatches and they matched.
It was only $10 more than my birthday money, but for how much I loved it I had to have it.
The end result;
I love it.
It looks amazing and was affordable (even before using my birthday money).
My eyes are always drawn to it when I walk in the room.
Happy Birthday to Me!!
