It's a special bloggy friends birthday today. Special because when I first landed into the world of her blog many months ago, I got a feeling that I knew I would be back to visit again and again. And who wouldn't - it's filled to the brim with creativity, yummy food, gorgeous family tales and triumphs with a twist of humour that will give you a good belly laugh. A visit to her blog just makes me smile!
(My gorgeous surprise birthday gift from Steph!)
Yes, I'm talking about Steph from Mon Petit Poppet.
(Nigella, watch out, Steph is in the kitchen!)
And over the past few months, I've enjoyed Steph's generosity, friendship and stories of motherhood!
(her poppet and mine! - Even my son had to take a moment to work out which was his sister!)
To add another dimension onto this, on many occasion Steph and I have found ourselves uncannily crafting away at the same project....
(Steph's heavenly kitchen aid!!!)
(gorgeous lunch bag Steph made Bijou - and emailed me the pattern! with handy hints!
bless she is from the heavens!!!!)
or planning to make the same thing, falling in love with a new kitchen appliance and, well sometimes we even dress the same. Yes, i kid you not the day Steph posted this fashion outfit (left) - I was wearing said outift (right).
(Steph and Me!)
So now when talking about Steph to anyone that will listen, i just refer to her as my Queensland twin.
So if you have not been over to visit her, get your butt over there quick smart! It's her Birthday after all!!
Happy Birthday dear friend! If I could pop over and give you a big hug or bake you a cake I would.
Have a fabulous day (i know you will!)
ps - birthday package on it's way to you soon
