a lovely day

What a lovely day it was today! It was my birthday and Mr Teacups spoilt me rotten. We both took the day off work so made the most of it. After sleeping in, we went to our favourite local deli for a yummy brekkie, then visited our local op shops. I found some awesome vintage fabrics in the shape of a bed sheet, pillow case and serviettes plus some buttons and a very cute old book "Miss Flora McFlimsey's Birthday" by Mariana, which was a perfect find for today. Then came the best bit... my very first visit to Patchwork On Central Park! Oh my goodness what an amazing store. So many lovely fabrics. It took me ages to pick out a few for some new projects and Mr Teacups even helped. Plus I scored some very cute fabric scraps AND a "Simple Sewing" book by Lotta Jansdotter. Lots of new things to make in there! So with Mr Teacups' wallet noticeably lighter we came home to get ready for a scrumptious thai dinner... Such a lovely day perfectly finished off with a chamomile cuppa as I type this.
