"B" is for Birthday Blessings.....
My mom gave me some birthday money, and I had fun finding some pretties with it, such as this rose file folder......
...... which had stationery and stickers inside it too!
A rose wreath for the front door ~ I just painted our front door and trim last weekend ~ it is "Cranberry".


The "B" is actually for Becca of course, and it is a pretty pink vintage embroidered scarf, shown here with a Jasmine candle that I also purchased with my birthday loot! :)

And look what arrived today ~ my Mother's Day gift from dh! English roses to plant by the fence!
I like how the box is even prettily adorned with drawings of roses!!
(not that I like roses ;)
Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy birthday to you! I love all your new pretties. What a small world - I grew up close to Tyler, the Rose Capital of Texas. I believe Portland, Oregon, is the Rose Capital of the U.S., but correct me if I'm wrong. If you have never been to the Rose Festival in Tyler you have missed a treat.

Hi, I'm new and love your blog. We share common tastes. I bought my Mother 2 'thornless' rose bushes for her b.d. One was white and the other pink. They were more expensive, but smelled wonderful! I am looking forward to being inspired by your wonderful blog!!
