Birthdays, Elephants and an Awesome Discount Code for Candy Shop Vintage

It’s somebody’s birthday today.

She asked me not to disclose her age.

She’s younger than me, but she’s a grandmother.

And recently became a great-grandmother.

She’s not taking it well. At 10am, she was already getting into the Veuve.

Which did not make her a particularly useful assistant today.

I decided to cheer her up by giving her a birthday prezzie. She had been admiring my Elephants on Parade necklace from Candy Shop Vintage.

(I think she was jealous of all the compliments I receive when I wear it.)

And so…

The lovely little blue box arrived in the mail.

And voilà! 

Suddenly, she has a new lease on life.

In honour of Serena’s 6th birthday (oops!), Candy Shop Vintage has generously arranged for all Dwell on These Things readers to receive 20% off new orders placed between now and Thursday, July 4, 2013. Enter the discount code SWEETTHINGS at the checkout.

Personally, I’m loving these made in the USA cuties at USD$38. (Loving NAFTA right about now.)

Happy Birthday, Serena!
