Well, my sixty-second birthday was quite a show. Anna brought these great little pennants from Paper Source to open the celebration and also made me a birthday cake. There was a major stack of presents, and beautiful flowers from my dear husband.
Look at some the lovely gifts I got--a panini maker from Jim, a wonderful bag filled with rubber stamps, ink, colorful cards, stencils, coasters, and ecological sandwich bags from Anna, a gorgeous pashmina from Dan, and a beautiful bag from my dear friend, Diane (Flora's grandma).
From our friends, the Penlands, I got this amazing carnivourous plant,
this lush fern,
and these snappy, pink geraniums.
Of course, the very best present was having my dear children and my darling husband with me to celebrate the day.
