Happy birthday.

A few weeks i got an email from a dad in America.
His daughter was studying in Ireland and he wanted to get some vouchers
for the shop as a birthday present.
So we arranged a birthday cake for her as well.

Happy birthday Annie.
she was SO surprised.

cutting her cake.

lots of new friends to sing happy birthday.

choosing her outfits.

My outfit today is
  So blue.
the dress and coat I got in Lucy's .
brooch sent to me as a gift
from a beautiful artist based in Ireland
magnolia pearl
via  internet.
These shoes are by Kurt Geiger.
They are vintage and 3 sizes too big,
hence the ribbon to keep them on.
too beautiful to pass no matter what the size.
I wear size 4 - 7 my size is 5.

Head piece by
Rose of  Portobello  London.

What a great way to celebrate a birthday!Great surprise and lovely cake!
Your outfit here is perfect: the doll head brooch made by your talented friend and the bloomers are mind-blowing!
Those shoes are so beautiful, I can easily imagine Marie Antoniette in them, a great find!
My feet are big and I'm not so lucky, I can wear only the ones in my size!

You lovely generous lady, what a beautiful cake! Your outfit is a work of art, so much of 18th Century Versailles in it, I adore the bloomers. All the blue and the flower headpiece. Not to mention that dolls head brooch. I utterly love it all. I want to come over and play

Your outfit today: so rad! I love the pile up of blues and those bubbles for tights and amazing shoes. We are the same tiny foot size and I too would lash those beautes onto my feet- they are lush!
