Happy New Year and yes I'm still calling for help!!!

Happy 2009 everyone, hope you've all seen the new year in with your family, friends and loved ones. Here's to a magical 2009, may it bring you all love, laughter and happiness.

And yes I'm still after one of the little Ikea birds lol Manchester has lots of them left in the sale, I looked on the website, so if any of you wonderful ladies are off out that way tomorrow or the next day for a little shopping therapy can you grab me a pack and we'll sort out payment or swaps. Thank you, thank you. Right I'm off to enjoy a glass of Baileys and see in the new shiny and wonderfully happy new year with my beautiful daughter Jade and fabulous fiance Ben x

I have seen this wonderful idea of cake stand and little bird decoration on top and think it would make a gorgeous stand for our wedding cupcakes.

I'm hoping that one of you wonderful lovely ladies out there in bloggy land as been to Ikea and bought a pack or two of these little cuties.
And would be kind enough to sell, swap or give me just 1 of them. For the top of our cake stand.
They had loads of them in Ikea but even after I'd checked their website for stock and it said yes we have them, we couldn't find a single packet in the whole building (and believe me i looked lol).

If anyone has them please, please let me know. and we'll sort out payment or swap for something. It will make my new if i get one and our cake stand will be complete and ready for Ben to set a date lol

Back soon with how Christmas went in the Cupcake house, poor Ben was very ill, so got lots and lots of TLC in his stocking.

Hope you all had a magical time with family, friends and loved ones.

I won't be going to Ikea for a couple of weeks, but if they have them then I'll snap one up for you, ok?

oh they're adorable, we just went to the Leeds ikea and I didn't see them - they would have come home with me, but if we go again I'll look for you sweetie.
hope the new year brings you much happiness, and health. xx

Hi Catherine,
I know its not the ones you want, but when I was in www.paperchase.co.uk the other day they had some clip on little birds in crystal(not real crystal!)& silver . They are listed on the paperchase website under mini birds. The ones in the picture have a yellow beak but in the shop I am certain it was silver. They were pretty nice as I wouldnt have picked them up otherwise!. I didnt buy them but I said to my daughter how nice they were.

picture on paperchase website doesnt do them justice though, much nicer in flesh. I think Lucy Bloom would be a great person to ask as she does discover lots of pretties!

They are very very pretty, I can see why you want some! I'd love to be able to help but I've only been in Ikea once (in 2003) and we haven't got one anywhere nearby :( Hope someone can help.

Aaah they had loads of these in the sale area a few weeks ago when we went, what a shame I didn't pick any up.
Hope you manage to get some though hunny!
Happy New Year to you and all the cupcake family, hope it is filled with lots of happy times, fun and love.

Hi there was browsing your favourites list and came across Lotties Barn, she has pretty little birds very similar to what you are looking for under her christmas section. Don't know if that is of any help to you. I am miles away from Ikea myself. Dev X
