Birthdaypalooza


It's my birthday today. I still feel like I'm 25, except I'm quite sure that I'm most definitely not 25.

Here's an old photo I found from my 5th Birthday.... (I know that because I counted the candles)


.... and here's the exact same tablecloth on my dining table 33 years later (I'm sure you can do the math)!

It has quite a few holes (hence the strategically placed centrepiece).

I can't believe my mum held onto it for so long. She gave it to me as it was holey and she thought I might like to cut it up for crafting. But I think I might just keep it for birthdays instead.



So far, birthdaypalooza has consisted of clothes shopping, op shopping, coffee drinking and lots and lots of talking and eating.

I'm only half way through my plans.... still lots more fun to go!

Have a happy birthday - hope you end up dancing on top of the tablecloth :)

Happy Birthday Cam!
I like that you are using that table cloth for birthday specials.
Since birthdays come around once a year and the actual day passes by far too quickly, I am a believer in week long birthday celebrations.
By the way, that chocolate explosion cake looks awesome.

Happy Birthday to the lovely Cam! I hope your week of celebrating is fantabulous, with lots of bacon, chocolate, milo and no greens! Plus lots of sewing :)

PS: you are only a few months older than me, it is just a number. I feel like I am in my late 20's still. Plus I STILL dont know what I want to be when I grow up.....

Happy birthday Cam! Sounds like you've been having a good time indeed. I hope there is cake too!

My Mum hung on to a lot of her favourite things like this too and I am sure I will be just the same. I always loved poking around in her linen closet and seeing what treasure was folded up in there. :)
