If You Have to Get Older, Enjoy the Gifts


Ha! That is my motto on birthdays. My family gave me some of my birthday gifts a little early. Fine with me. (I'm a kid about such things.)

Loved this garden sign. Perfectly describes what I do when stressed. Otherwise I would eat cookies. Which of course I already do.



A perfect spring candle. How nice the colors all match.


We all have to get older and have a birthday every year so you might as well enjoy it and enjoy the goodies.


Off today for a whole day with my SoCal blogger girlfriends. I am so excited. Going to the Country General Store Spring Open House and a few gift cards are burning a whole in my wallet.

Happy Birthday Elaine, I loved your gifts-especially the milk bottles. I hope you have a wonderful time with your friends. I should probably learn from you because my big 60 is coming in a few weeks and I don't want a big party- just spending time with family is what I love.
Hugs, Noreen
