My Birthday Weekend


My birthday was Sunday, but the celebration began before that.....


I received this lovely rose planter as a gift from a faraway friend. This sweet lady has never been to my home, yet knew how perfectly this would go with my decor! I loooooove it!




I have some of the most thoughtful friends! Another friend sent me these flower seeds because she knows I am currently putting in a cottage/secret garden. They will be perfect!
(The term "faraway friends" only applies to distance in miles, because I certainly hold them close in my heart.)

I began my celebration on Friday, when my dear mother took me out for lunch at my favorite cafe! We had a lovely time, and browsed some antique shoppes afterwards, and here are my finds....... these prayer lady salt & peppers, which are just the color for my kitchen.....





This sweet bird shelf..... I don't know where I'll put it, but thought it was so sweet!




This lovely green and pink plate, which will go in the dining room ~ somewhere! :)





Since my birthday (Sunday) would be spent travelling most of the day, so that we could attend my niece's graduation party, my husband and I spent the day together Saturday, hitting some flea markets and going out to dinner that night. I found a few treasures, which I'll share another time.......

It was a great birthday weekend, and included lots of chocolate too, of course!
