the birthday girl


I'm going to a birthday party for my friend Irene today. She's such a hoot! We call her the Diva, a name she's earned with her style and attitude. I'll bring my camera and take pictures of the party.
For her birthday, I made a tower of gifts. I didn't think to photograph any of the gifts before I wrapped them. The best gift is an extra long necklace with two gold puff hearts and a key. It's so beautiful. (I've requested one for Valentine's Day!) Most of the rest of the gifts are just for fun. I bought a set of body markers for a temporary tattoo (just in case she's always wanted a tattoo!), chocolate covered oreos, those things you put in the water that grow 6 times their original size, some fairy magic dust, a tee shirt that has "birthday girl" written in rhinestones, monogrammed post-it notes, and a few other things I can't remember.
Happy birthday, Diva, my friend!

You are so thoughtful, that tower looks amazing and so beautiful. Can I keep the boxes once she finished opening them? (joking...), absolutely unique and wonderful! Your friend is lucky indeed, can't wait to see the pictures.

What a beautiful idea! I love it and will try to recreate it for my sister. But tell me more about the necklace! Where did you find it and do you have a picture?
