She asked me not to disclose her age.
She's younger than me, but she's a grandmother.
And recently became a great-grandmother.
She's not taking it well. At 10am, she was already getting into the Veuve.
Which did not make her a particularly useful assistant today.
I decided to cheer her up by giving her a birthday prezzie. She had been admiring my Elephants on Parade necklace from Candy Shop Vintage.
(I think she was jealous of all the compliments I receive when I wear it.)
The lovely little blue box arrived in the mail.
Suddenly, she has a new lease on life.
In honour of Serena's 6th birthday (oops!), Candy Shop Vintage has generously arranged for all Dwell on These Things readers to receive 20% off new orders placed between now and Thursday, July 4, 2013. Enter the discount code SWEETTHINGS at the checkout.
Personally, I'm loving these made in the USA cuties at USD$38. (Loving NAFTA right about now.)
