Seventy Five Cents worth of pretty!!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I want to thank all of you sweeties so much for making my birthday so very special.  Your comments and birthday wishes were abundant and wonderful.  I will do my best to get around to all of you and personally thank you for your thoughtfulness.  I am one lucky person to have such wonderful, lovely friends and I adore each and everyone of you.  There is nothing like blog love, nothing in this world!

I still managed to get to the thrift store and find these lovely pillow shams.  There were only three and the price was, and I'm not kiddin, just 75 cents!!!

They were large enough that I just removed the old covers and replaced them with these.
Since I only had three, I used the third one on the settee...

I also want to introduce you to a sweet new bloggerette.  Her name is Kim, the Flowershop Gurl.  Go over and meet her.  She is so creative and has a heart as big as the sky.  I just know you will enjoy her blog.  Stop by and say hello, you'll be glad that you did.

                                            ~~ hugs ~~

I am glad that you had a lovely birthday. You certainly deserved it. By the way I mentioned your blog today in my happy 101 post. Please stop by to see. I also wanted to say congratulations on winning Linda's giveaway, but it is rather suspicious that your kittens delivered kisses..... are you sure this wasn't rigged? Have a lovely birthday week and party hardy.
