Birthday gifts

A birthday gift from a friend. Thank you Sally. Sally sent me this lovely scissor case, it's in shades of peach/purples, and look at the sentiment on the back, isn't that a nice saying. Sally and I live about 17 miles apart, so we have travelled that road a few times.

The back of the scissor case.

This was my gift from my ds.........................



And one of my gifts from my dd, was a pair of slippers. These slippers are unique - my dd bought plain slippers, and decorated them with buttons from the button tin - isn't that a great idea.

Lovely gifts I love the scissor case.

Can you email me, I have lost your email address, mine is on my profile, I have changed it from what it was before, so we can 'talk' about the valentines exchange idea

How thoughtful of your DS...my DS's would do something similar! LOL!
And what a nice idea about bedazzling Mama's slippers with buttons...I may have to bedazzle my own now!

So glad you like the scissor case Chris. I liked the verse on the back and thought it was very apt :)

Love the slippers. What a lovely idea. Have fun with Mario Kart! It is great fun. I laugh so hard sometimes when I'm playing it with Abi that I can't see to play properly!
