birthdays and anniversaries

I know I said I was going... but just had to show you these pics. I'm off early tomorrow...

It was a big birthday weekend in Brian's family - a sister with a 'significant' birthday, a brother-in-law's birthday and little Mia was two. Here's Tom and Mia playing with the farm she had as a present:

And with the play food. When my two were little they had the play food from Early Learning Centre - but it's gone a bit upmarket these days. Just by Mia's foot is asparagus... and in the corner of the pic is a croissant!

And today is our 17th wedding anniversary. And I just have to show you my gorgeous present from Brian. It's turquoise and silver and has been made by our friend Jeremy Heber. He's a wonderfully talented silversmith and Brian commissioned this piece especially for me as it's not a stone that Jez uses in this piece usually. I just love it.

I'm really going this time. Be good. Or as my dad used to say when someone told him to be good... I won't be good, I'll be magnificent!

Happy wedding anniversary, your turquoise piece is absolutely beautiful. It reminds me of a bolt of lightening (the type you get when you fall in love...)Kylee (Lunes Bijoux)
