Birthday Senorita

Yesterday was my birthday, and how did I spend my birthday this year? Patrick took me out for a day of shopping, all on his dollar!  For the first time in years, the weather was sunny and warm for my birthday, and I was able to wear a few things I’ve been dying to wear, including this stunning shawl…

In the late afternoon we went to the Twilight Rummage Sale, where I picked up a late 40s/early 50s cocktail dress, a 40s blazer, a ’49′er knock-off, and a fantastic lucite deco picture frame.  Once the sale was over, myself and several friends who worked the sale met at Por Que No for margaritas.  It was an evening that almost felt like summer…Mexican music, margaritas, a pleasant evening breeze, and good chatter that made the evening fly by.

As for gifts, I just have to share a few highlights…

The beginnings of a WWII sweetheart charm bracelet…

A pink tinted lucite sweetheart necklace…

And, the best for last, a necklace comprised of Bakelite ORANGES!!  Oranges are my favorite fruit, and my passion for California adds to my desire to have orange themed bits of jewelry.

  1. If I don’t get a tiny sombrero I will lay on the floor, hold my breath and kick until I turn blue. This hasn’t worked in the past, but here’s hoping. Happy Biorthday!

  2. Happy birthday! That sweetheart charm bracelet is adorable. Do you plan to combine the charms with another bracelet, or leave it as is?

  3. Happiest of Happy Birthdays Janey!
    It looks like you had a super fabulous day and the best shopping trips are the ones funded by our special halves. :)
