I had NO idea that my last post sounded SO gloomy!
I'm so sorry about that...I am sooooo NOT gloomy!
So, let's get this Birthday MONTH party started today!
I received THREE separate packages from my BFF in Pennsylvania, Sandy of Sew Revived. But of course we'll just open ONE today. Oh I just love making you squirm! haha
Many of you have commented on my willpower. Trust me, it's hard. But I love knowing that every morning I'll wake up and open a gift from a friend or loved one and that just makes my Birthday MONTH so special!!! So enough of the talk...let's open it up!
OH MY GOSH! Sandy! You shouldn't have! I just love it!!!!! Isn't this just the cutest pendant? It's layered so full of silver goodies and I just love the "Free Spirit"...that is so me! And, I had to chuckle when I saw the Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer...do they still make that anymore? ;)
Oh geez...I don't know which one I love the most! Look at all these beads! I love the mix of gemstones and glass...it's beautiful!
**In case you are wondering...I'm in shock at this moment!**
Awe...Sandy knows me so well. Although I love all kinds of jewelry, I still love the vintage and sweet stuff the most! Isn't this little one a doll????
All of the fashion experts are saying that the color purple is "in" this season...and I'm in L-O-V-E with this bracelet. How does she know me so well?
And this necklace...it is TOO SWEET! Oh I am totally in LOVE with all of these!!! It's amazing how a friend across the states can know me so well! Thank you soooo much Sandy...you shouldn't have! I love it all! Thank you Thank you Thank you!
So while you are drooling and all jealous, I'll just keep flipping through my new book she sent me...
HA HA HA!
I bet you thought she sent me all of those beautiful goodies huh? NOT!
Those are just a few of the beautiful creations inside this awesome BOOK she sent me!
I hope I had you fooled and you were so jealous of me!!!! hahaha That's payback for you thinking I was gloomy yesterday! ;)
How could I EVER be gloomy during the month of October??? Shame on you for thinking that!
See...I am still my same old silly self (just 11 days older)
And, I was able to make it to the Antique Fair in Washington, LA yesterday. I got a little wet and muddy but it was worth it.
NOTE for the record: The weather was gloomy, but I was NOT!
(geez, I'll never let ya'll live that one down!)
I picked up a few items and took a few photos. I hope to post about it soon. (In between all of the presents I still have to open!)
