We can't turn back the clock, as much as many of us would love to. So, why not celebrate instead?
My birthday this year fell on the date, 09-09-09. How cool is that?
It also fell on Cupcake Day for the RSPCA at our school - the prep kids' parents were asked to bake a dozen cupcakes for the little kids to sell to the rest of the school - and they sold over 600 cupcakes at 50 cents each and made over $300 for the animals. Here's the dozen I baked, couldn't just keep it simple, could I?!!!
And this gorgeous Metallicus dress.... oh how I love Metallicus... You can see it on the model here, just gorgeous!
Now, a while back when I posted my sock monkey, a lovely lady called Deborah W (who doesn't yet have a blog but whose daughters are promising to set one up for her!), emailed me to say she'd like to send me a pair of original Red Heel brand socks!!! How absolutely generous and awesome is that?
But you see, this package arrived on my birthday, and she didn't just send socks.... I was blown away by the incredible stuff she sent me, oh my gosh!!!
See what I mean? How amazingly generous Deborah is!
You know I'm loving those green pearly buttons don't you? I just want to eat them!!
And these old pearls are the heavy real glass kinds. O. M. G.
Thank you so much Deborah for your sweet and generous gift! I will be making a real sock monkey now!
Thanks also to my Facebook friends! Gosh, I've never had so many birthday wishes in my whole life! AND I am such a Facebook slacker, lol!
Until next time,
