Bee happy ..... birthday treats and giveaway

Despite being ill over my birthday I had a much better time than last year after being snowed in :)

My birthday cake had a snowy theme though!

Mr Happy totally spoilt me again with gifts and treats.

I had a gorgeous heart gift from Susan at Tea Diary, I think she knows me better than my own family!!

Thanks so much Susan you are so wonderful, check out her sweet blog here

My advent swap partner is Tinkle Star and she had sent me an extra gift for me for my birthday, thanks so much Twinkle Star, I love it, a bee for holding my bag onto the table when I am out and about :)

Check out Twinkle Star's wonderful crafty blog here, she has some great tutorials for crafting and it is a must to see :)

Mr Happy took me to Caythorpe in Lincolnshire to visit Decorative Country Living on my birthday.

This shop is well worth a visit if you are nearby, a treasure trove of wonderfulness!!

Even the entrance is so beautiful.

A few pics of the inside, more to follow.

A few shots taken inside, I just loved these blue shutters but they were already sold :(

Remember to enter my birthday giveaway, you have until Friday this week :)

Good luck everyone.
