OOTD: Birthday Presents from Rich!

I bought this vintage dress at the weekend from recycle boutique - it was pretty darn cheap and I had two comments today about the dress, so it must have been a good buy.
So today I wore the jewellery that Rich bought me for my birthday - so I thought I would share it with you.
First up is a brooch to show my love of sewing - including tiny scissors, thimble and button. Very cute.
He also got me this cute ceramic bone brooch - I really love bones! For my 30th birthday Rich bought me a sliver bone ring and not I have a bone bracelet as well - even though it looks a bit weird in this photo.

Finally, Rich bought me this DIY pop art badge kit - I love craft kits a LOT, they are pretty much one of my most favourite things ever. I love craft in general, but there is something about having EVERYTHING you need to do a project on hand in one box that appeals to my love of all things convenient.
Rich and I made up the badges over the weekend - it was a pretty simple and fun craft project. We did two each - mine are on the top row and Rich's on the bottom. I really love the little bird badge he made, especially seen as it's carrying a ribbon.

Aww what great presents! :) the badge kit is so cool. I love how kits like that give you a launching point for further developing the original idea and making it more your own! :)

Love the print on your frock, especially that little bit of turquoise you can see in the close up. (I knew VBG would spot that too!)
Your pressies are perfect - and your man does crafty activities with you too? He's a keeper! xxx
