Well the day has finally arrived, last Tuesday I turned 60! It feels so much bigger than any of the other milestone birthdays.
This is a painting my husband got me for my birthday. As soon as I saw it I immediately thought it was my two older sons when they were small. It was a happy coincidence that the painter painted two young boys who happened to look just like them! It is by a local artist named April D'Angelo.
I was so surprised to find these in the mailbox!
Barb from Fun With Barb sent me a wonderful Nancy Drew book and this cool pincushion that she made! I don't know if I have read this book but you can be sure I will. The pincushion is so cute and the truck is a Ford, the same as my husband's trucks.
The doors even open!
This is a Christmas gift from my friend Stephanie. It features Denyse Schmidt fabrics called Katie Jump Rope, one of my all time favorites! It looks so vintage, she knows me well.
My friend Cheryl of Cheryl Lynch Quilts gave this miniature to me for my birthday! Cynthia this is made from an Altoid box!!! (My friend Cynthia always has Altoids in her purse.) Look how detailed this is! I just adore it and will put it in a special place in my sewing room. Don't you love those bolts of fabric?
Chery is getting ready to leave soon for Key West until March! She made this amazing Kismet Trinket Box. The bird fabric is from France.
Inside she filled it with all sorts of goodies too! The red dish is a magnetic pin holder. I am going to have to find something special to do with those zips! The candied walnuts are missing......
I have fallen in love with all these glitter houses and think they feel so festive!
These are new ones that I bought this year. I love the vintage feel.
I also have a few vintage ones and think these may be my new thing to collect, not that I want a million of them!
For some reason this one is a favorite. The yellow is unexpected and I love the bricks on it too. It's so quaint.
I hope you enjoyed my show and tell. I wonder what the next 10 years will bring!
