bounty


I thought I'd share a little photo collection of the birthday presents I received yesterday. All in all it was a normal day - some order packing, a lot of thrifting, some antique stores and a double cappuccino. But it's not every day you get cool presents like:

1. An utterly amazing vintage 1920s necklace! I had my eye on this at a local vintage/jewelry shop that I frequent, and unbeknownst to me my saavy friend Amy went there and asked the the shop owner what I was keen on. So smart. I had tried this necklace on and pranced around the shop only to leave it there and well, now it's mine! Such a wonderful present to get - something I had wanted to so badly.

2. A new, smaller size dress form. It was frustrating trying to fit tiny dresses on my small-but-not-tiny dress form.

3. My friend Lindsay sent me a Coco Chanel Art Documentary DVD. It awaits the next end of winter snow day, which I predict will be very soon!

4. A really outstanding dinner with Mr. DG & my mother-in-law at pretty much the only restaurant we have not been to in our town. We're silly because this place Logan has been open for 5 years and we've been missing out because my sea bass was crazy delicious and then there was goat cheese cheesecake for dessert and I seriously brake for anything with goat cheese.

5. Mr. DG heard me whining about having to lug my nice Nikon camera around so he bought me this cutie pocket sized camera that I can take with me whereever!

6. My dad gave me a gift card to Amazon so I bought this Le Creuset dutch oven that I've had on my wishlist. I already had one dutch oven, but I was after a smaller one.
