Today's theme for Heads or Tails Tuesday is 'anything you can do with your hands'. It's pretty much free reign here - there are a LOT of answers. But, you know what I can do with my hands? OPEN BIRTHDAY PRESENTS! WOO!!! Yesterday I posted some fun photos from my birthday weekend, but saved a few for today. The things I got from my friends were so beautiful, I just want to share them with you.
A beautiful basket, which I promptly filled with all my current knitting projects.
A gorgeous feather wreath containing peacock feathers, one of the most beautiful things in nature.
Something I never imagined... we will be testing these out at Thanksgiving and I will let you know how they are.
This really sweet hippocampus necklace.
There's a little bit more story behind this one. See, my friend Violet, she loves mermaids. And I have a bit of a thing (total understatement) for unicorns. So, we discovered the hippocampus and decided that we should make it into a unicorn mermaid instead of a horse mermaid. She has one of this necklace too, she found it at the Portland Pirate Festival and got one for me too as it looks somewhat unicorny. Another part of her present to me was covering 1/2 the cost of my next tattoo, which will adorn my body before the end of the year! We're going to get a hippocampus - either modeled after the necklace or after a really cool Celtic hippocampus we found online.
Aaaand, last but not least, this gorgeous box, in which I found some gorgeous earrings. In the background you can see a really cool blue and gold picture frame which I got along with a bottle of rum and a bottle of Stirrings Mojito Mix.
What are YOUR hands up to?
