MY Birthday Give-away!!

Hello friends! I'm celebrating my birthday TODAY! I have to show off a few items that my family gave me over the weekend. I don't normally feature pictures of myself on the blog, so get ready. It probably won't happen again for awhile.

My mother (the artist/seamstress/quilter) made this 3 panel quilt to hang in my new University office.

Aren't the Asian influences beautiful?

My mother also gave me this sweet yellow enamel cup filled with all kinds of lovely trims to use on future crafting projects.

My sister gave me these stunning matching sunglasses to wear on our upcoming antique flea market trip scheduled for Saturday.

Let's hope it's sunny enough to wear them!
Rain, rain go away!!

My Aunts gave me this pitcher which was formally my grandmother's and was used to pour morning milk on my mother/Aunt Jean's breakfast cereal.

What a special item.

Chris and the girls are treating me to dinner and gifts later this evening. We're just full of birthday celebrations around here. Next up is Josie's superhero birthday party.

She's turning five on June 10th and I haven't even begun to plot her party decor yet. Guess it's time to take down the Bieber Fever tree in our sunroom and replace it with superheros.

To share my festive mood, I've giving away a few Kim K creations (button bouquet and a mod podge decorative candle) along with a vintage hankie and some of my favorite Jasmine tea).

Entering is super easy! All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post. I'd love it if you were a follower, but there's no pressure. The girls will draw the winning name on Memorial Day 5/30 at 7pm (EST).

Good luck and Party ON!
