Isn't she lovely!

She's a wife, a mother, a grandmother, a business CEO, an artisit,
an interior decorator, a fashionista, beautiful and she's my sister Kim!
Today's her birthday, but shhhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell anyone that she is 52!

I told you she was pretty.  I don't know why I didn't get those dimples!

She went from Ms. Glamourpuss.....

To Glamourous Granny!

Her first Granddaughter, Payeton, (R) was
born just a few months ago.
I probaby don't have to tell you that she is the
proudest Grandma in the world!

There is nothing like the love of a Sister and I would be lost without mine.  We always said that we were twins born nine years
apart.  We are so much alike that it's scary.
We can find more to laugh about that the average person
and if I am down or feeling blue all I have to do is
talk to her and I always feel better.

We have been through thick and thin and if you have a sister then you know what I mean.

You should see her house, it's 2die4.  She loves pink,
so I made her this......

I could also tell you stories about our escapades and some of the messes that we have gotten ourselves into, but I'll save those for another day.

Happy Birthday, my beautiful, loving Sister,
I love you with all my heart.

I love visiting your shabby cottage. I read back to the last couple of post...I heard on the news that Hawaii is the only State that did not have snow this year! Happy Birthday to your sister. I'm an only child...I've spent many nights as a child wishing upon a star for a sister. Blessings to you both. See you back in the Finders Keepers Library...Life rolls on in The Enchanted Playhouse. So happy you are with us!

Hi Sissie, Your right their is nothing like a sister to hang out with to have some good laughs. My sister that's all we do, probably laugh to much. Your sister looks adorable just like you. Just by your crazy personality on your blog, I could just imagine you two getting together having a great time, especially when you say you two are so alike... I don't know but that could also spell out trouble with you two..LOL

The pillow you made for your sister is so pretty, and I'm sure she was so appreciative of you to have made that for her... how special!

Wishing your sister all the best and hope her Birthday was Grand-

That's so sweet, Sissie! Happy Birthday to your sister. I'm the oldest and my youngest sister and I are so similar it can be scary. My Mom will even say that we both say the same thing in response to something she will tell us individually.

Hi Sissie!
I know that you and I have commented back and forth several times and I love your blog - not sure why I wasn't following??? I fixed that...also added your Etsy shop to my favorites.

I know what you mean about cutting up vintage things! I only cut the ones with issues.

My mom and dad had 6 kids too! I have 4 sisters, whom I am very close to, so I understand that sisterly love! Happy birthday to your sister! Oh yea, I have one wonderful brother!
