I know I have left this blog post quite late seeing as my birthday was a week ago today but I have been waiting for a few things to come in the post and still am so hence why this is part 1. I got quite a bit of birthday money too so after I go shopping next week I shall blog part 2. I received so many lovely presents. I got a hand embroidered pencil case, heart locket, cat notebook, 5x cds (Fleet foxes 'Helplessness Blues' and 'Fleet Foxes', Fantastic Mr. Fox soundtrack, Lykke Li 'Wounded Rhymes' and Prince Caspian Soundtrack) and a hand-made printed patch. My sister and her boyfriend got me some amazing vintage Sandylion stickers to add to my growing collection, takes me back to my childhood. My uncle and auntie gave me the most beautiful antique Victorian embroidered purse in a lovely old Christmas box. By what is written on the card and box it was made by one of the ladies who did embroidery for Queen Victoria, what a wonderful piece of history and I shall treasure it always.
