Lot's of PINK and a Birthday

Well September is just moving along...
and ever so fast...
Again I have started making my
PINK Bottle Brush Trees

And my Birthday slipped in there
I had to stop and actually figure out
Just how old I was no kidding
I was told "that's a gender thing"

The kids spoiled me
I had the most yummy delicious

And flowers delivered to my doorstep
A Box arrived in the mail
 from my Mom & Dad
with Lotions and Soaps
and Vitamins 
(so very thoughtful)

I had to work in the morning
but then I decided you know
what I want to do... (talking to self)
 make a trip to the Thrift Store

And I'm glad I did I found some boxes
6 to be exact!
Of original Toni Doll Clothes
Toni was a friend of Betsy McCall
clothes are from the late 50's
early 60's

So really it was a very nice week
and a Great Birthday...
Happy Pink..
Love ya,

Happy Birthday! I know exactly what you mean about figuring out how old you are -- I always think "That can't be right!"

(My number always seems a little too high to me.)

Wishing you all the best for the coming year.

It's sounds like it was a wonderful one. Don't work too hard this weekend and just keep on celebrating.

Hugs and love...Tracy :)

Happy Birthday! Continue the celebration as long as you can!
I still have my Toni doll, but I don't think her dress is the one she came with. I think she was my last Christmas doll - that was a LONG time ago!

Happy Belated Birthday! I spent one year thinking I was 49 only to realize on my birthday that I had just turned 49...sad, huh? I thought it was very humorous...

Happy Birthday my dear friend. What a wonderful Pink week of blessings you have had. There is no need to put a number on the year. You just need to be thankful that you made it to another birthday! Love that gorgeous dress. Smiles...Renee
