Homemade presents galore and Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday I celebrated my 28th birthday and it was a great day! My husband had been busy working on lots of surprises for me - which is exactly how I like my birthday - filled with lots of surprises.

Each gift he gave me was homemade including four gourd bowls, and beautiful painting of a butterfly and a fun game called Kubb.

If you've never heard of Kubb I'd highly recommend checking it at at Wikipedia and giving it a go. It's a fun outdoor game that is a cross between bowling and horseshoe tossing. Some friends of ours brought the game when visiting and we loved it so much that Xavier decided to make it himself. You could buy a set, but it's so simple and easy to make, just requires some wood and an ax. Check it out and have a blast.

I also received some beautiful gifts from friends and family including gorgeous homemade earrings, beeswax candles, flowers, lots of birthday wishes, and a beautiful wooden backed mirror for our new home. Thanks for the special birthday!
