Updating Little Lady Lily's Room

I have been thinking for a while now that I need to update Lily's room with some pink as it is still red, white and black from when we decorated it not knowing what our little Peanut was going to be!  So I started looking around and came across a few (and many more) cute ideas.   I want to stay with the bird theme as she has a tree with birds decal.on her wall................................but I am open to other ideas too!
Loving the embroidery hoops idea and have started looking for some already.  I like the birth notice idea too, so many ideas and I'm still looking.....................................

I am still here, I promise!

Sorry there has been a lack of posts lately, we have been pretty busy with one thing or another, poor little Lily has had a cold, I had my birthday and with working and a few other projects on the go there hasn't been a lot of time to post.  And to think when I started out doing my blog I was going to try and post every day!  Anyway with a bit of spare time up my sleeve I thought I would post about a few things that have been happening lately and a few things I have found in my travels.
First up my birthday - it was a great day and I was very spoilt and I thought I would share a couple of cute things that I was given.......

I was given the bird on a swing necklace - thanks to Lee at Pretty Birds for making it for me and thanks to my friend Jemma for giving it to me for my birthday x
The cupcake is actually a chocolate given to me by my friend Jenna and they were not only delicious ( there was more than one, so naughty) but oh so cute!
I got lots of other practical goodies too while they aren't cute they definately make life that little bit easier.
I was also spoilt with flowers which I never get any other time of the year (hint hint Mr R) I ended up with 3 bunches which was nice, there is nothing quite like bunches of fresh flowers to make you smile.....
