Birthday celebration

 Now I´m 42 , my birthday was last week ( May , 15th) and since then I have been surrounded by flowers , sweet messages, gifts and lovely moments!

 Have I told you that I kind of "collect " all kind of ribbons? Yes, I love the texture, its color and the possibility of reusing them , too.

 I can also decorate my fridge, how about that?  The pretty penguin was a gift from Sinhana, my dear talented crafty friend!

 Now to the food ::
My brother made an entire "Birthday Package" for me on that day , he cooked carefully my favorite food, paella, from Jamie Oliver´s recipe book! He also bought this beautiful and yummy birthday cake, too . Thank you Lucas, you are such a brother!

 I also have to tell you my love for Pyrex dishes, well, this one above is a Brazilian version that was made in the 60´s  ~ 70´s and every house had at least one set of this beautiful ware.
When I went to my mother in law´s house , she and my sisters in law gave me an entire collection they had in their cupboard and I confess, for me, this was one of the best present I got so far!!

And this was our dinner time celebration with my dearest family. I am so grateful for this funny, full of love  , supportive and smiling family, especially my dear patient husband!! I  love you!
And for all the blog readers, thank you for the kind comments on Facebook, e mails and so on and so forth, you make my day, really!!

 Camila had her first experience "driving" this mini kart and that was so exciting that now she wants to go back to try again.
 Her cousin just reminded her to make  the right turn !
 And little brother got so amazed by the sound of the karts and the speedway.
 Oh, and we visited a fantastic event held in a Shopping Center in São Paulo , old toys museum! I love these stuff, take a look, doesn´t it bring you good old memories?
an old sewing machine, I ´d love to have one of this!
 I used to listen to these children´s stories...

These were called FOFOLETE in Portuguese, I don´t know if you had these tiny little dolls in your childhood. I remember my mom gave me one when she travelled somewhere and she brought to me and I kept it for a long time and carried it with me wherever I went.

 Topo Gigio, there was a TV program , so cute!

 Here you can see Acquaplay that my friends had , Espirograf which was so fun to draw ...

Genius: I wanted this one but it was too expensive so I didn´t have this toy in my childhood , now we can play on the cell phone!

So, is there something else that you really loved playing when you were a kid? I remember the day I got a doll called Bochechinha, it was a Santa´s present and that Christmas night is the one that I can´t forget for the big excitement and joy I felt as a child...  good old times...

Have a great weekend!
