My Somewhat Vintage Birthday

My birthday or even birthtime is very close to Valentine's Day.  (February 13 in the mid evening is when I was born) I always had a heart shaped cake growing up, that my dear mother would decorate with beautfiful roses.  I still have the heart shaped cake pans that she used.  So because of this, Valentine's day has been very special to me.  Last night I went to bed very late after my husband already was in bed, I found a sweet, beautiful love letter and dark chocolate by my bed on the nightstand.  So before I even awoke to this Valentine's day,  it was a good good day!  I wanted to share some of my birthday presents.
I was so excited when I opened this beautiful ring.  Not vintage but love it just the same.  This was sent to me from my  wonderful in-laws.  I love the ring's contemporary yet little bit traditional style.  They truly have an appreciation for fine jewelry.  Thanks to Ron and Leslie!
Then a friend came over to give me a gift.  She knows how I love anything vintage.  First there was this never before used vintage birthday card.
the wonderful old movie "Sabrina with Audrey Hepburn"   It was one of my favorites from when I was young.  
this adorable vintage birthday doll for February.  When I was a little girl, I had some friends that would get these for their birthdays and I always wanted one with my birthstone in it.  It is a Josef original.  Isn't she sweet?

And this wonderful room Blackberry & Vanilla room fragrance.  Thankyou Camille for all the lovely gifts.  Love them all.

Truly beautiful and special gifts. The ring is gorgeous, and the chocolates the best. Your cake as a child sounds wonderful. My mom always baked an angel food cake and frosted it with that sticky egg white frosting always so good.
