I was a birthday girl this week.

It's already February 1st!Wow!
One more week (and a whole month in fact) flew by!
Somewhere between floods and disasters happening everywhere in Greece due to the bad weather and a new leftist government in discussions with the Europeans,causing unbelievable positive and negative reactions at the same time all over Greece, this little girl here (that's me) had her birthday!
As I mentioned I didn't celebrate it  but I was really happy to receive some gifts and I am showing them today.I know more are in the post somewhere so I will show those when I receive them!
First hubby bought me a new mobile phone. Not that I needed one but he insisted!
He also gave me some money and I got myself three pullovers since it is sales time here. I hadn't bought anything for ages and I didn't even know what size I was!!!!!
The two are Bershka and the bottom one is H&M.
I also received lots of phone calls, facebook messages, SMS, e-cards and a couple of cards on the mail.
This one from my dear friend Maria Jose in the Acores,
 this handmade one from my dear friend Carolyn from England,
and this one from dear Juliana in Scotland. It's a Victoria &Albert Museum card.
Juliana also sent me a birthday gift and a Pay It Forward gift (a facebook game)
Here is what there was in her parcel.
 Chocolate of course, Crafts Beautiful magazine with a quilling set,
 felting wool, sequins, buttons ribbons and beads in gorgeous hues of blue,
  a little cute Barca ornament,
 this butterfly was hiding...
 ...a gorgeous set of sea glass wired wrapped earrings and pendant made by Alienstoatdesigns on etsy and ebay.
 some lovely soap,
 a set of lovely sea glass fridge magnets Juliana made herself,
 and a very beautiful tote bag printed with a photo of her sea glass made by SusanSeamaiden.
 Juliana thank you, you have been very generous with me always.
This week I also received a lovely pair of earrings that I had won on a giveaway a long time ago on Efzincreations blog.
 The earrings I had won were a Christmas design. They never arrived so sweet Triada of
The Purple Balloon gave me a second chance to choose another pair and I chose this lovely cupcakes earrings pair which arrived in time for my birthday!Thank you Triada!
And thank you Zina for hosting the giveaway!

I'm here with GYB
I love sea glass
I do not live by water ,so when I'm by the sea I alway pick it up and I save it.
Nice to meet you I follow so will be back
