Jump Around!

Birthday morning a week ago called for bed hair and brekkie in bed.
And awesome green earrings from The Stylist embellished with five-cent coins "just in case you run out of change".


Then the wee hen decorated the kitchen with my Black Milk collection, decorating one's house with clothing is ingenious!
It was so awesome to see Number One son and Danni-Long-Legs up from Melbourne.



I think The Stylist actually had the day in the palm of her hand ... she spent the day doing insane things with my hair and she and DLL turned into completely insane lunatics, while the lads spent the day flying a remote control helicopter around the house.
Hooray for burp-days!
Skirt and leggings - Black Milk
Black bracelet - Number Three Son
Pink skull bracelet - the beautiful Krista
Blue beads - Danni-Long-Legs
Tribal necklace - the amazing Aminta

Number One Son found one of my favourite CDs from the early 90s while taking a walk down memory lane, digging around in his storage boxes.

Robot dancing in Cardboard City.






Dress ups are essential birthday activities.


Then scouring local restaurants until we found the noisiest one around - mmmm ... Italiano!
So lovely to see Number One Son and DLL for the weekend:)).



Can you tell we're a wee bit chilly?


Number Three Son bought me this awesome black metal bracelet - I'm so happy he and The Stylist bit the bullet and thrifted all my presents!


So he gets to wolf down a yummy fresh pizza.

A few days later surprise birfday loot arrived from the goddess Vix!
A 1970s lurex top and AWESOME GREEN jumpsuit, cocktail rings, 1960s evening purse, Barry M nail paint in the very colour I've been looking for ... squeeeeeeeeee!



The card ... act natural - well yeah, that's just me right there innit?


The Stylist and I can smell a tug-o-love happening over this leather gorgeous-people-dancing wallet.


It's been bucketing down for a couple of weeks now, so the jumpsuit has been perfect in the cooler weather.
The Stylist caught me having a stretch.


Dodging the raindrops and racing out for some happy snaps on Saturday.


Wearing the nail polish and ring from Vix with a 1960s frock I bought from a market recently.


My latest headband creation, worn with a sweet little necklace also from Vix and kimono from Erica Louise in the christmas swap.


Look what turned up today!!
A pressie from the darling goddess Helga!
A gorgeous wee cape with silver lurex flowers and the most awesome brooches including one of my idol Frida!
I think I pee'd myself a little bit.



A compliment for you ... thank you so much for your gorgeously sweet birthday wishes ...
I recommend this as THE best way to get a jump start on your week:)).
You are so welcome!
Love,
Desiree xo

Woah, what a bumper crop of photos to enjoy here. Looks like so many magical moments crammed into one birthday celebration. As for the Stylist's choice of celebratory decoration - what a girl of great taste. Clearly both a chip off the old block and a striking individual with plenty of inspired ideas!

This looks like the funnest of fun birthdays! Great gifts, and your number one son is the spit of you, if a little more conservative in dress (unless he's wearing Black Milk leggings just out of shot?)

Love the earrings the stylist gave you xx

Happy Belated Birthday Des!!
It looks like you had a rather marvelous and fun day.
The stylist is rather smart giving you some extra change for just in case & I love how she decorated.
I also thought you looked rather fetching in your stretching picture.
*heheh*

The Style Crone said...

Happy Birthday! You did it up in style and I would expect nothing less from your gorgeous self.

VainGlorySinner said...

Happy belated birthday you funky chicken! The stylist is such a little charmer isn't she?! Who wouldn't love to have a little stylist of their very own dressing up houses and buying thrifted birthday presents! So cute!

Loads of birthday gifts, how exciting! The cape and the leather purse are yummy!

I'm glad you had a lovely day and a nice meal with all your family - number 3 son's pizza looks good!

I absolutely loved The House of Pain - Jump Around when I was younger! I remember it was on the film Mrs.Doubtfire and I'd jump around to it then! xxx

Forest City Fashionista said...

A very happy belated birthday, and I must say, that is an awesome haul of birthday loot. I would definitely arm wrestle you for the Flamenco dancer wallet! Your daughter is the bees knees at decorating a party room.
