Birthday Fun!

Hi, girls! ♥ I have more Birthday surprises to show you but I'll limit them to presents from girls! First are these surprises from my friend Amy here in VA. Hiiii Aaaaaamy! Amy reads this blog but doesn't comment. Hmmm... do you think we can talk her into it? ☺ Amy has one of those cool embroidery machines and she made these adorable kitty towels for me! So cute, huh? I love them! She asked if I would mind any second hand stuff and I said, "of course not!" You see, I don't have a mom or sisters who are "always giving me stuff" like so many other girls I know -so bring it on! So anyway, Amy gave me this pretty fruit plate... and a cutie pie shelf...

and some teddy bear fun! Also a flower basket cut out that I'm using to hold my match box for the wood cook stove in my red kitchen!

She also gave me this beautiful blue glass swan. Thanks again, Amy! ♥

Then my Daughter in law, Sara sent me this candle sconce, scrapbook embellishments, stickers and CANDY! ☺You talk about yummine! they were little Sea Horses and such a smooth texture! Sara also wrapped up my box in pretty paper which is something i rarely receive! Thank you, Sara! ♥
And then I had a fun package from Lisa that wasn't *really* for my birthday but I pretended it was!! Hee-hee! Lisa was sorting through her holiday decor and sent some surplus my way! I already showed you the Fall items she sent but here's some from other seasons plus these fun scrap booking supplies!
Christmas goodies -including some vintage post cards!

and Easter goodies. See the ducky pulling the cart? Lisa said that when she saw it, she knew it was mine! Isn't that sweet? I love it when other bloggers see things they know I would like. ☺ Thanks again, Lisa! ♥

* I'm hoping these new scrap booking supplies from Lisa will help motivate me to start scrapbooking again because I have run out of pages to show for Scrapbook Sunday! Noelle plans to continue to post though so be sure and go by her place!
* I've been very busy getting ready for Natasha's party next week on the 22nd! At that time I'll show you before and after pics of my sweet retreat and I'll be having a one day only give away!
See you next week, peeps!

I had to post to something that said "girly girls", sugar!!! Yep, I AM a girly girl even if I'm almost 70 years old. Squeeeeeeal!!! Those things are adorable and I'd say you're very fortunate to have such lovely things for your birthday.

Jacqueline said...

You must have felt like the Queen Fairy to be on the recieving end of such wonderful babbles and toys and china and such! That is what birthdays are all about! You'll be able to put that shelf to perfect use! I've been busy posting from Underground Seattle (Pioneer Square) but tomorrow, I'll rise up out of the dirt to the land of fairytales once again!

I love your birthday goodies! Especially the postcards!
Thank you for the compliment on my banner. :)
I don't know if I will buy the Twilight dolls right away as Christmas is coming so I should save for that but I will get them sometime! I might not be able to wait though. I really think the Bella doll is gorgeous!
I am getting so excited about New Moon! I got the movie guide book and wow, I am so thrilled with the photos! I think it will be wonderful!

Hey Holly!
It was so fun seeing all of your birthday treasures! It looks like you had a wonderful birthday and best of all you are surrounded by the love of wonderful friends too! I hope you are having a great week, it was 34 degrees down here this morning...a cold front finally came our way, doubt it will stay, but we are finally going to have some cooler daytime temps high 68 today yay!!
Big Hugs,
