Just back from a lovely trip home to a surprisingly sunny(but cold) Scotland. Was great to be there for my birthday last friday and had a great evening with my sister Pauline, and Pauline S at Rennies in Johnstone. This was a combined birthday celebration and a NYC planning meeting son we could decide who's bringing what and what we want to do while we're there - has to be a trip to Tinsel Trading in the Garment District since it's not far from our hotel and I visited it before going on my first Tim Holtz cruise. We just had to have some cocktails to get us in the holiday spirit - love the enormous cocktail glasses! We had a scorpion punch and the of course we had to have a cosmopolitan a la Sex and the City. I'm not much of a drinker but these were so good :)
My sister made the most amazing malteser birthday cake for me - so good, yum. Continuing with the NYC theme, i forgot to share the birthday card I made for my sister in August - this is the ran't waiteason we're off to New York, she's always wanted to go and see the rockettes christmas show at the Radio City Music Hall - tickets are already booked, can't wait.

One last halloweeny pic, someone had thrown away an old wire lampshade and when I saw it i just thought "Pumpkin" so i had to rescue it and turn it into a pumpkin lantern with tissue paper, tattered leaves cut from packaging and heated to mould into shape.
