Happy birthday to your mum, mine turned 81 this week. Love all her goodies and i love that idea of the little glasses with the roses (going to pinch that one!) + just love those cards. Isnt it fun shopping for someone who enjoys lovely things such as we do. Like they say the apple doesnt fall far from the tree (in a good way). Happy days, Mel xxx

ooh too lovely, happy birthday to your mum!! One of my bestest friends (Sue) works for French Provincial in Wangarrata, I think that was their first store in Vic! I must admit I havent been to the store since they opened in Melbourne, must make sure I do by the looks.

Oooooh Andrea you have out done yourself this time, such beautiful pressies, I am sure your Mum will love them. Think I will be pinching the rose in the little glasses idea as well. Hope you have a great day with your Mum on her birthday, boy have just realised how close your Mum, Dad & your birthdays are!

Am really wishing we had one of the shops up here!

Have a great night Sweet
