Yeah, I know my birthday was 2 months ago. What's your point? I subscribe to Oprah's philosophy on this point: "The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate."
So, I spread the celebration out and spent some birthday money on these two wonderful pieces by Debra Greenleaf Campbell.
These just make my heart sing. I purchased them on etsy and I'm just thrilled with how vibrant and wonderful they are in person.
I also spent some birthday money on a modest spree at Haberdashery, my favorite local needlework shop:
Yummy. I'm infatuated with the Caron Watercolors and Wildflowers threads and Haberdashery has a whole wall. The gals at the store know me as "the bright-color girl." ;-)
I'm busy getting settled into the new place and figuring out a new routine. The studio is about 80% unpacked, which turned out to be the perfect amount for me to quit unpacking and start playing.
