Surprise!!!

February 2nd - and its my birthday!!! Yes, and for American's, its groundhog day (that I'd never even heard of until I moved to the US), and also Candlemas.

Today my birthday is full of surprises - with nice pressies and my husband taking me somewhere for the day...but no hints so far.

So as I'm getting surprises today, thought I'd share one with you: - my latest creation although I haven't quite got a name for it ....maybe just "Birdbox necklace".

Here it is: a round silver box with a little silver birdie on the latch....




























And then open up the box and SURPRISE!!!!!! - a little blue bird jack in the box!

Happy Birthday sweetie! Hope you have a great day.

We are all snowed in over here in London - there is about 4 inches of snow and more falling! Hope it is a bit warmer in California!

Such FUN!!! And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I am marvelling at the latch with the bird(not even thinking about the work that went into the hinge!!!), must be one of the CUTEST thing I have ever seen!!! The box is gorgeous too!!!! I didn't expect a blue bird to jump out, more one of your silky looking songbirds, or a little mound of tiny colourful stones, but it worked, I jumped!!! :D
Enjoy your birthday!!!
Lots & Lots & lots & LOTS of love!
