Rufus Sprout.....

A while back I said I'd post about the wonderful presents I got for my Birthday (which now seems so long ago! Where does the time go) anyway I was a very lucky girl! Here's just a few of the wonderful things people got me.
My Lovely Parents brought me.......

Rufus Sprout!

Rufus is a hand sculpted doll by Wendy Froud http://www.worldoffroud.com/www/main.cfm(the lady who is responsible for the models in the Dark Crystal and Labyrinth films) I've been a fan of her work for many years and owning a one of a kind doll of hers has been a dream of mine for a long while, I found out earlier in the year she was working with her friend Hazel Brown http://www.faery-art.com/ a very talented artist in a calibration called the Dark Wood Fairies, these faeries come with there own box full of letters, books, magic etc. When I opened this up on my Birthday I was blown away there is so much in his box, dairies, spell books, runes, maps, I could go on, all of these are hand made by Hazel.

Rufus now sits on top of my desk, watching down on me while I work, I'm so very pleased with him.

Next my fab fella got me.......

A Tiffany teddy charm to go on my Tiffany bracelet!

Lex got this when he was in Las Vegas, I was so surprised when her produced the blue Tiffany bag I burst into tears! Which is very unlike me, I'm not much of a crier! Anyway it was beautiful and I love it.

Next my brilliant mates Kim and Chelle got me......

A trip to the Prague Christmas Markets!

I was blown away by this generous gift, we are going for 3 days in December, staying in a 4* hotel and are going to have THE BEST time!

These are just a few of the gifts I received, people where so generous and thoughtful, its still makes me smile now, i have some wonderful people in my life!
