OMG, I've been dying to show you...

My mum sent out an early birthday present for my 40th!
Yep, I'll be 40 in a few days...

It was so exciting opening the parcel from Sweden.
The surprise look on my face when I saw what she had sent me - priceless☺
I couldn't believe it!!

It was an antique wooden tray used in farm kitchens a long long time ago...

It's been a dream of mine to own one.

Now, I have all these ideas of how to decorate it.
Looking forward to Christmas...
Just sayin'

Oh, my... it's going to look amazing!

A perfect gift for me♥
So happy she was able to get a hold on one.
Wooden trays are very sought after in Sweden.

A simple display of faux apples in my beautiful tray.
The apples were a gift from my dad♥ many years ago.

Two perfect gifts together as one.
 Nice and simple, just the way I like it.

Hope you all have a great weekend and fab week ahead.
Hugs from an almost 40 year old!

  8. Oh Pernilla, I love wooden dough bowls! They are sought after here and cost a pretty penny. Over $100. Can't wait to see it all decked out for the holidays! Happy 40th my Australian friend! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
