October Weekend

I had a lovely weekend.  My birthday on Friday was a special day.  My daughters, as always, wrapped my presents beautifully. We've sort of created a tradition that gift wrapping is creatively handmade and almost as important as the gift!
The i♥market went well too.  I really enjoy the people aspect of the morning - meeting new blog readers, old friends and fellow stall holders. 
Soon I'll introduce you to some of the new products we had on the stand. In the mean time we are enjoying some light rain here in Durban. Things had become bone dry and some of the plants in our subtropical garden were begining to die off, so this is a welcome relief!

Oh my goodness, those gifts look gorgeous!!
I really need to learn to be more patient with wrapping!

I envy your rain ... the clouds are slowly taking shape here in Jozi, and hopefully we'll have a Highveld storm on of these day.

One of these days.

Hey belated happy b'day. If wrapping is so cute then gifts inside must be double cute. :)
