Birthday trinkets

I’m kind of a birthday brat. In our house I designate the whole week leading up to my big day the “birthday week”. I know, I know, it is one of the busiest weeks of the year and here I go and make it ALL mine. I think it is a Christmas baby thing.
The one really good thing about holiday birthdays is that there are a lot of glitzy items floating around the thrift stores! So I decided to use some of them as birthday decor instead. Tinsel garlands are particularly cheap (25 to 50 cents a bagful)  and so I’ve got some ideas for those. As well as gold ribbon and a lovely pile of vintage pink floral ribbons. I’ll show you what I did with it all later this week.
Amid my preparations I also dyed my hair a dark chestnut brown. I am feeling extra dramatic and glamorous with these new dark tresses.
And when I was supposed to be finishing my holiday shopping I scooped up a perfectly pink birthday skirt from Urban Outfitters. Don’t worry, I got my holiday shopping done too~
And finally I want to congratulate my friend Angelica on the birthday of her brand new baby boy, Corbin this past weekend!!! Welcome to the holiday birthday baby club Corbin.

  1. Hawt birthday brunette!! =]

    Good for you for treating yourself to bits & baubles. Life's too short NOT to! That skirt & the glam decor? LOVE. You have such a way with vignettes.

    P.S. I'm a post-holiday baby myself (Jan 3) so most years peeps are too burned out on festivities to remember my bday. HA!


  2. There's a show here in the US called, Happy Endings. On an upcoming episode, one of the main characters has always pretended that her birthday was in July, it's actually Christmas day. Her friends find out and try their absolute hardest to make Christmas day all about her birthday and NOT Christmas day…looks too funny! Happy Birthday to you!
