High Tea and Champagne

Today is my birthday and I spent the afternoon celebrating with group of girlfriends. High tea and champagne at a fancy hotel is a very nice way to while away a sunny spring afternoon. Petit fours, macaroons, club sandwiches, scones with jam and cream, cakes, creme brulee, waffles, chocolate dipped strawberries, sorbet, biscuits.....I could go on.
 I came home with armfuls of flowers, a ticket to see these guys, a sugar high and a very fuzzy head from all the champagne. Mr 'do we really need more crap in the house' was very obliging and after looking after the kids all day even managed to cook me a very lovely dinner. Tomorrow I will hit a couple of markets in search of a pair of teak and ceramic table lamps but for now, I'm off to bed.

If your new to my blog then a big hello! The Junkettes have swelled ranks considerably over the last week, it's a bit exciting to share finds with so many like minded individuals! I'll try to get around and visit all of your blogs and say hi over the next week or so.

Enjoy your Sunday, Where ever you are.
