I know...it's alot!!!!! It took me almost an hour place all the goodies and get them all in for a picture. (I should be at work...please forgive me hubby for being late today!)

Here are a few close ups...I don't want anything to be missed!

I hope I didn't miss anything...

I can't wait to go shopping here, here, & here & wear my new flip flops that match my new wallet after I hang my initial banner by the front door. Then I'll come home, relax in front of my new oil painting and fall wreath as I sit and wonder what I can create on my sewing machine to pack with my new apron and bag to bring to Silver Bella! Maybe I will be served dinner on my pewter platter with chicken salad sandwiches on my new plate! Then before I go to sleep, I'll start a new birthday journal in my handmade book!

Whew! I have to get going!

Thanks to all who remembered my birthday..................... whether it was a phone call, a text message, a visit, an email, a comment on my blog, a card or a gift...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE everything!

THANK YOU!

You know she's spoiled when she gets a gift card (from her son!) for $25 at hobby lobby and gets mad because its not the usual fat $50

happy birthday momma. Its the 5th and it cant even be counted as late because you take the WHOLE month! its worth it though...because the other 11 are spent on me and dad.

love ya
