A Wonderful Birthday

Well, I couldn't help mentioning it but it's my birthday today and I think it's fair to say, I've been completely spolit. Check out the rather beautiful 18th-century-style wrapping above - the paper below has a velvety flock design, and the one above is pink with tiny gold birdcages on it. Just gorgeous...

I'm amazed by all my thoughful cards, including my aunt's (below) which is a clever mock-up of an 18th-century playbill and has elements from my blog printed inside (such as the shoes from my toolbar). I'll do a separate post on my boyfriend's card, which is a 'hierogliphick on the king's birthday' dating from 1798.

I was also given a DVD set of Mozart operas live from Drottningholm, one of which was recommended to me by Tutta Rolf. I can't wait to get watching those :)
