Getting a Little Older

So... yeah... the age has gone up this week.  And while my joints are screaming in protest, I did get some cool toys to help make up for it!

Firstly, I got this awesome bag a while ago but it was given "as a birthday gift" so I have held off showing it until now.  But it is pretty cool, nice and spacious:

A PanAm bag!  Because I have an obsession for that show...

All of the hardware says PanAm

Even the zipper pull!

Officially licensed and all.

Also, how amazing is this bag going to look with my blue raincoat?

Nextly I got the most awesome clock of all time (pun totally intended):

It is an ity bity sewing machine!

Aren't the little scissors cute?

The hand crank totally moves too!

I was even excited about the German instructions - they will go nicely with my Burda collection.
And so I ask you - have you ever seen anything so cool?!?!  Of course you haven't.  Until now anyway. Seriously people, how jealous are you?  It is so awesome I am jealous of myself.

And, as if that isn't enough, if all goes according to plan I will be able to use my amazing powers of "carpoolness" to bum a ride to the LA fashion district within a few days time.  If you weren't jealous before I am sure you are jealous now.  Rightly so.  Don't worry... if any fabulousness happens to be bought I promise to share it with you soon!

This getting old thing is turning out to be maybe not quite so bad...

EDIT: I have been informed that the clock is from Brighton in England... which takes the awesomeness level through the roof!


  1. OMG, the clock-sewing machine has so many levels of awesomeness!

  2. Getting older is much less painful when you get super cool presents!!

  3. Happy Birthday. And, yes, I am beyond jealous of your new clock!

  4. Happy Belated Birthday! Jealous doesn't begin to describe how much I love that Pan Am bag! Serious awesomeness!
