It's my Birthday and I'll Blog if I want to!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I will be celebrating my birthday tomorrow, Wed.,May 12th!!  Funny how the years go by so quickly and what happened in your life 10 years ago, seems like only yesterday.

I guess there are advantages of getting older, ah, let me see if I can think of a few...oh yeah, like senior discount!

I just finished a pillow in black toile....

Found this little farmhouse cabinet in an ugly green.  So, I brushed on some gray and wiped it off.  Looks pretty good.  I placed it in my booth and hope someone will take it home...

I had a bunch of old tarnished silver spoons and decided to fill them with lavender, wrap them with tulle, ribbon and bows and sell them in my booth.

Here's a photo of me and Mr. Sissy in 1976.  Our son was one year old and we had been married almost 2 years.  Our 37th wedding Anniversary is May 24th.  We were so cute and "skinny!"

Ooh, I hope I get lots of presents for my birthday!!!  And, maybe a birthday cake with tons big icing roses....yummie!

Oh Sissie,
No wonder I love you so, we are both born under the same sign! Happy Birthday girl! So much to comment on, but I am having trouble concentrating after seeing that CUTE pic of you & your sweetie. He looks like Donnie Osmond, & you Sissie, you look like a little flight attendant, or should I say stewardess. You are still cute & skinny! You guys must have been about 17 when you got married. Love the new collage banner, love the black toile pillow, love it all. Go eat some cake & make Donnie take you out to dinner. Lisa
