Birthday Blessings

Having a birthday at the end of January can be a mixed blessing.  It always happens in the dead of winter but it’s lovely to have a special day between Christmas 100_4008and Valentines Day to break things up.  I’ll spare you pictures of yesterdays blizzard and instead show the handmade card I received from my BFF, Linda.  A true gift in itself!  And if that wasn’t enough - 100_4026

I had mentioned wanting to make a table topper for my coffee table so she made me this!  The colours are perfect for my living room and I love it!

True blessings, beautiful gifts and an amazing friendship.

Hoping this finds you all safe and not too sore from shovelling,

Diane, belated happy birthday - what a lovely table topper. I hope you had a good day and stayed warm and away from the snow. Fortunately our snow has been gone for almost a month but there is a threat of more, but we have had some very stormy winds and lashings of rain over the last 24 hours.
Take care and enjoy another restful day.

Hi Diane~

Happy Belated Birthday to you! I hope it was a wonderful one. :) The table topper your friend made for you is beautiful! And I love how your "Best Buddies" quilt turned out! It is so cute! :)

Also, thank you so much for your advice on the painted vanity dilemma...I can be so bad at making these kind of decisions! I appreciate your giving your opinion~ I need all the help I can get, LOL! :) And I hope you have fun working on your French Provincial furniture!

I also hope you have a fun weekend!

Blessings,
Jenni

Diane, your blog is so delightful! I have spent a happy time reading through your posts and admiring your handiwork! I absolutely adore Jake and Ruby, too! And your sewing machine table (clever DH!)... and the view from your front door overlooking those stunning trees... and your sweet letterbox (did you paint it yourself?)

Happy stitching, Diane!!!!!

Hugs! Vikki xo :-)
