{vintage love}

this peacock purse was my grandmothers.
My mom gave it to me when I was in Nebraska this weekend.

I love the detail on the back... Quite a smashing vintage bag that I will now treasure.

I had an amazing trip back to Nebraska for the Holiday weekend. It was also my birthday and I was quite blessed with some amazing gifts:

a gucci purse and some time with my dear friend, Chelle.

A beautiful black tote with the initial "K" from my Mom and Dad
and also some vintage goodies from my mom and Dad and the new Ingrid Michaelson CD

a stack of books from my sister which are promised to be some good reads

a fabulous yellow Coach purse from my sweetheart {he says he cannot believe he bought me a yellow purse, I say it's perfect!}

a amazing hand sewn leather clutch from my amazing friend Rina {more on that later}

gift certificate to Target from my brother and sis in law

a sweet blog post from my dear friend Emily... {here} thanks EM!

a meal cooked by my chef brother that was divine.

most important time spent with friends and family.

and the best part? the celebration isn't over yet!

cannot wait to celebrate a little more with some of my Denver friends.

Hope you are having a great week!

Yikes, Kara. What a wonderful birthday and what a wonderful blog.I think you have to come back to the Midwest to get a great birthday like that ;-) I love your photographs...I am learning, Kat is better!

We are a mother and daughter, new in blogging (about four months old) and would love to have you come and visit sometime, if you wish. We really aren't all about our jewelry!
