Birthday {Part I}

Hi :-) 
It was my birthday :-)

I received the most luscious bouquet of hot pink and light pink roses :-)

My family and friends really went all out to make sure it was a special day...sending flowers, gifts from afar, cards, and bringing pink champagne and presents. They really indulged me, and are ever-so-good to me. Thank you, dears, for making my day so special :-)

My brother calls this my Neopolitan Ice Cream skirt. I call it my Birthday Tutu! I've worn it for my birthday before (see this old-as-the-hills post). It's just so perfectly pinkly party-y! I wore it with my grandmother's crinoline underneath. Can you believe she used to wear it under her poodle skirts in the 50s?! I love it so much it's not even funny.

The feather headpiece was a birthday gift a few years ago from one of my very best friends. I love it so much and have worn it on many birthdays because it is just so birthday-y! I wore some vintage costume jewelry earrings, and my polka-dot tights too.

A birthday only comes once a year, so it definitely requires some party clothes! Don't you agree? 

Check out PART TWO here, including my green-ombre cake with pink frosting!

Happy (late! :( birthday, lovely cousin!
So glad it was special with family.
I have an "out there" question - do you have a copy of your "switch" show? I know I taped it (years ago at a friend's house none the less, as we didn't have cable - but I told Daniel a while back you were on a TV show, but couldn't remember much, so if you have it, would you mind sending it this way if it's even possible?? :)

I love your birthday skirt!! Also, the little felted 'happy birthday' present in the flowers is super adorable. It is giving me all sorts of (good, hopefully) crafting ideas!
