Birthday Treats

These are some of the nice gifts I got yesterday for my birthday! My husband took me out to lunch at Houston's this weekend in Irvine and then to Fashion Island, Kean Coffee, and Hi Times. Last night we had Rustico for dinner. He brought me home the lilies, wine, and cash! Cards and checks came from family. We are having a family gathering this weekend to keep the birthday coming!

My friend, Suzanne, gave me this gorgeous antique perfume bottle. Look at the daisies in relief on the stopper. Oh its precious. It is adorned with "jewelry" and each piece is movable. The cross has a lovely patina. Thank you Suzanne!

Papaya Art and Sabrina Ward Harrison

A match made in heaven...two of my favorite artists have combined forces. I have had the pleasure of meeting Sabrina Ward Harrison and Anahata, the artist behind Papaya! art, at different times and years. I would love to know how this collaboration came about! I could not have dreamt anything more perfect. Check out the collection at http://www.papayaart.com/category.jhtm?cid=85
