Birthday Greetings~~

Oh...What a great day I have had~~~


Today was my birthday and it was just perfect!! My family let me "do as I wanted"...Sometimes thats a gift in itself!!  I truly have relaxed, been pampered and done very little.... Couldn't have asked for a better day than that!!!

I must share with you a couple birthday gifts I received this week to kick off my special day.........

My good friend Karen really is super crafty.... Check out what she sent me!~~

.....and.....
My clever stitching/sewing friend, Myra, made me the cutest item....I had to take a second look to see exactly what she had made... perplexed???.....

See if you can guess what this ingenious thing turns into....


She's a genius! Its a fold-up travelling ort container!!! Smart. smart, smart I tell ya!!
Thanks so much Myra!! It is being put to excellent use as we speak!!

So, that's a wrap from beautiful North Carolina this fine fall evening....

Thanks to those who emailed me, sent those beautiful e-cards (Thanks so much Marylin and CharleneSC!!!)  Well wishes to you all....

I leave you with this departing picture of one of my fall displays....smalls perched in an old bread bowl on my kitchen table.....
