It's my birthday, it's my birthday, I'm gonna party like it's my birthday...woot, woot!!!
I've had a fabulous birthday today! First off, yesterday I went to a local charity shop and came home with 20 yards of fabric! I kid you not. And 75% of it was wool...oh, how I love Scotland!
In addition to the fabric, I got 49 vintage zippers and a bunch of hook and eye closures and snaps, as well as thread!
David and I started out the day at a lovely little tea parlour called Eteaket. Their motto is:
We took a quick walk around Edinburgh. The Christmas market is still going on:
After that, we checked out the vintage stores in Edinburgh. The most amazing store is Armstrongs....it is absolutely wonderful...floor to ceiling vintage fashion:
This is definitely the place to come if I need to buy a little hat or vintage gloves to match an outfit!
Then we went to the fabric store....I walked away with some lovely lightweight wool (more wool---I love it so much!) and some very soft viscose:
Finally, we capped off the wonderful day with a lovely dinner at a local vegetarian restaurant. For dessert, I had chocolate souffle...yummy!
And when we walked outside...it was snowing! What a perfect birthday! Thank you all for your lovely birthday wishes!
