Road Trip

Many, many thanks to all you sweet bloggers for your Happy Birthday wishes, cards and emails. I didn't eat lots of cake....in fact I ate no cake. Trying to be a good girl and stay away from extra calories. Instead I went on a birthday buying trip for the boutique .... to some places I had never been too. What a blast I had and found some really special treasures. It seems there was an unexpected theme in this buying trip....vintage baby and pink. I found the most gorgeous yellow moire with pink roses baby book with illustrations by Charlotte Becker. Oh my goodness...the graphics are unbelievable.

And look at Ms. Charlotte, the pink chenille bear, dressed in all her tulle, feathers, and vintage white crocheted jacket. She had a tea party this afternoon and used her vintage violets snack plates and cups. She hopes all of you had as much fun this past weekend as we did. xo Lynn

Hi Lynn,
You go girl passing up that cake! I don't know if I can do that - ha! Love that book, and the pink bear...so soft and pretty! Sounds like you had FUN, that's great. I'm up late, fell asleep on the recliner with chills...and now I can't sleep and I've got to go to work in the morning (maybe)....heee....Hope you have a great week.
Hugs,
Rose

Yes when Rian left I did an area in the yard. I did a wreath on the tree..dad made the swing feeder. Under the tree is my AF flag and we strung lights.
Thanks so much. It is funny how they pile in there to eat and swing.
