I feel so lucky, here's what I received from family for my birthday. I have to admit I picked out my presents except for the ones in the last photo.

MY VERY OWN PRESSURE CANNER!!!! This will be awesome for all of my preserving.

This hand-painted canvas is huge, I wish I could properly show you the texture. It's gorgeous, is perfect for our lounge and it was 1/2 price :)

Some new flats that I desperately needed, also 1/2 price.

and lastly my very special presents that the kids bought me. Lachie got me one of my favourite movies, The Castle. He knew that I'd been trying to find a copy of it for a long, long time. Sophie bought me the magnet, it's so sweet and so thoughtful. Dan gave me a big hug, I love that he still wants to hug me.


  1. Happy Birthday. Isn't it nice to be able to get EXACTLY what you want?!! You'll put the canner to good use for sure.

  2. Can't wait to hear about the canner, I haven't heard of one before.

  3. Happy Birthday! I love my pressure canners, and I hope that you enjoy yours, too :)

  4. What wonderful gifts. I love my pressure canner.


I love receiving comments and do try my hardest to comment back, sometimes though, life gets in the way.
