I was going to take a selfie bitching about having to wear an alpaca cardigan to stay warm today after it had been sooo nicer earlier in the week but then Pia came over to interrupt me and I smiled so I guess you get both. 😜

Sunny day! 🌞Excited that in a week my dad comes to replace the fence behind me, so it'll match the one he build on our neighbor side awhile back. 🌟
Wearing my @memohelen tee with my @tattydevine name necklace from my sewing friends! ❀
(p.s. If you saw yesterday's pic no the hotel didn't find my Bakelite. I'm trying the ones we stayed in later but pretty sure it's gone for good. πŸ˜”)

I'm so mad at myself because I just discovered I must have left this pink Bakelite bangle behind on our first weekend in London. 😫😫 This is the second time I've done that with a bangle but luckily the first time a few years ago, it turned up at our friends' house in Cardiff. I am usually SO careful!! I can last pinpoint it in a photo the day before my birthday, only a couple of days into the trip. πŸ™„
@brighterbakelite maybe it you ever have another just like it, you can let me know? πŸ˜”
My only pink Bakelite, unless the hotel found you (doubtful since it was 2 weeks ago but I just emailed anyway), RIP. πŸ˜’πŸ’”

Yes Pia, the first day of spring yard work sure is tiring. I'm sorry I can't share the first beer of the year on the deck with you. πŸ˜‚πŸ»

We're home now from a wonderful vacation! πŸ’•This is one of my favorite photos from the trip, on the back side of the 16th century manor house we stayed in for one night in a 13th century town in the Cotswolds. So dreamy! 😍 Now, time to catch back up with life... 😴

Visiting my favorite painting, hadn't seen her since I was 20. ☺
Also highly recommend the Queer British Art exhibition at Tate Britain @tate, which just opened last week.

Paid homage to some of my favorite mysteries and writers in the last day or so. If you get where the second photo was taken, you'll understand I was super sad Speedy's was closed when we went but at least I got to geek out anyway. πŸ˜‰ And we loved The Mousetrap, so much fun!!

One of my life goals met! 😭I cried happy tears as soon as I got there. I've wanted to see Stonehenge since I was about 12!!! πŸ˜πŸ˜­πŸ’•β€

Enjoying the Cotswolds for one night. Thank you for all the heartwarming birthday wishes yesterday!! πŸ’‹πŸ’•πŸ’—πŸ’‹

Following my tradition of sewing myself a dress for my birthday, here's my 40th birthday version: vintage pattern, gorgeous @gertie18 fabric, Green Park in London and a matching tree. What more can you ask for!? πŸ˜œπŸ’— Also there's a scheduled post about it today on my blog! β˜ΊπŸŒ·πŸ’—πŸ’•

Happy 40th birthday to me! πŸŽ‰ Just starting tea at Sketch, it's so beautiful in here I almost cried when we walked in. 😭

Yesterday was pretty much the best day ever on our first full day in London. πŸ’— Why can't I live closer to these amazing crafty ladies. 😭😭 I took no pictures like a dumbass so first 3 are stolen! 😬 I bought yarn and fabric and was given amazing gifts including a @tattydevine necklace with my name on it (when no one knew I was literally planning to go get one for my birthday tomorrow so they read my mind 😍). Cocktails, sewing and knitting shopping with friends (even if I was too shy to poke in on @gertie18 during her class at @raystitch), ugh so much fun!! I want to do it all over again! xx πŸ˜­πŸ’—πŸ’‹β€
