Birthday MONTH: Day 17


The day has arrived...the 7-Mile Yard Sale! woooohoooo!


While you are reading this, I hope that I have my arms (& trunk) full of goodies and I am taking lots of photos to share with you when I return from the 7-mile yard sale! I sure wish you were here too!!!

Since I'm going to be gone all day and will be coming home sort of late, I thought that it would be a good idea for me (us) to open another present.

We've already opened three out of seven presents from my sister Karen. How about we open number four???? {giggle}

It reads "To travel to Silver Bella" oooo LaLa Fun! :)

Karen's cards are always so pretty! They come from Victorian Trading Co. (my favorite)

Doesn't she look like a Red Hat Society Lady? I hope she wasn't hinting that I'm almost "at that age" hmpf! ;0

Here's the note inside...isn't my sister such a sweetie?


She sent me a beautiful deep PURPLE leather purse! It looks black in the photos (it was so cloudy outside) but it's really a rich deep purple and soooo soft! She knows just what I love. And for those who know me...I never buy me a new purse. Maybe once in 4 or 5 years or until the zipper breaks!


So if you are going to Silver Bella next month and you see a crazy Cajun with a Southern accent sporting a gorgeous purple leather's ME! :)

I have one question because I am so NOT into fashion:

Do I have to wear purple shoes with this?? Gosh I hope not ;)


Today I'd like to wish my sweet friend Zandra



She's such a true sweetie! I hope to meet her (& Tim Holtz ;)  in person at Creative Escape 2010! 



to my new friend Anne at Fiona & Twig

I just found her blog (or rather she found me, thanks to Debbie) and I love it!

If you haven't visited these two girls, I encourage you to do so and while you are there, wish them a Happy Birthday!!!

I can't wait to see what you bring home! It's my birthday month, too! But I say....if you have purple shoes....what they hay...wear them! I had a friend who wore purple Doc Marten's. They were so fun and adorable that everyone talked to her!

Happy Weekend!



Your sis is so right! purple is the hot color and it is everywhere, love that purse!!
Have a great time on your yard sale adventure!

Anne~fiona and twig said...

Please, struggle and TRY to have a good time, will ya? Sheesh, lucky duck. Rescue me and take me with you! It's my birthday month, too!

Karen said...

sigh. YOu just had to mention Silver Bella. I'm entitled to pout since I don't get to go. . . right?
I can just see you with purple shoes! No - I don't know anything about fashion, but I seriously would doubt you have to match your bag to your shoes any more.
Won't you just die when everyone tells you "YES JODIE YOU MUST MATCH!" LOL
I hope you are just having the BEST time on your yard sale . . . yes I SOOOOOOOO wish I was with you. Why don't they do things like that here in So Cal????
Can't wait to see what you bring home!
Hugs. Karen

Happiest of Birthdays to you! I hope you are having a rip roaring time on your 7 mile sale! Oh you lucky girl. Do share your finds with us. We have to live vicariously!

Jane said...

Great present...isn't it nice to have a sister who knows what you like?? Can't say the shoes have to match the purse but if you can find a pair of purple shoes go for it (and then post pictures!!)
Can't wait to see what you find at the 7 mile sale today.

Jessica said...

Great purse!! What will you be wearing when you use the purse? Your look stylish no matter what! :)

The Victorian Parlor said...

Love the purse! I say wear whatever shoes you want with it! Around here we wear flip flops with everything (it's a SC thing:) even in the winter.

Birthday Blessings,
