Show and Tell *** Birthday Week :)

Hi. I love October. Its finally cooling down, under 100 anyway, and the mornings and nights are so nice. I love Halloween. To me its the official start to kick off the holiday season. I always seem to have so much fun stuff to do in October. So many of my friends and family have birthdays in October. Including me:) It has been alot of fun. My friends and family are awesome. Its been alot of celebrating for a week and a half now. My BFF Johnsie(can we say that when we are over 50?) took my to my favorite Asian restuarant and gave me this beautiful Brighton bracelet. I love it and it is perfect. My Sister and my other BFF Kathy (I have alot of BFF's, thats the good part about being over 50) took me to a ceramic painting studio and I painted this rose cupcake. The cake on the plate in the background was from a previous trip. We had cupcakes from the Cake Cafe. Kathy gave me an adorable kitty tote bag and this adorable Boyds collectable box that has a tiny bear holding a cupcake. Today my other BFF's Mark and Judy took me to eat at Joes Barbque. (If you are in the phoenix/gilbert area; you have to go there!!) But it was kind of a suprise party. Both of my daughters and my son-in-law, grandkids and my other BFF Pat came too. Great dinner, great company and a great hook up with Joanns gift cards:) So, its been an awesome birthday week.

My studio re-do is coming along. Very slowly, but surely. I will have pictures soon, but I did receive the most awesome gift in the mail from one of my blogging BFF's. Francie saw my post about how my theme for my new studio is a french bakery theme and sent me this adorable cake. You can also visit Francie at . I hope you all have a great week and get to spend time with your BFF's.

Hi Gail,

Happy Birthday! My grandmother used to celebrate the entire month of November which is when her birthday was.

I love that sparkly cake with the roses on it and what a romantic idea to use a french bakery as a theme for your studio. Can't wait to see pictures!

Thank you for stopping by the other day. I am thoroughly enjoying the studio remodel.

Hugs! =

Hi Gail!

I know I'm really late, but I still want to wish you a happy birthday. It sounds like it was a fantastic day! I loved your post and all the pretties. I am finally down to one last order from the ton of orders I have had for the last 10 months, so I'm trying to catch up on everyone. Been really busy with hubby to with his rehab and care also. Never a dull moment around here. I'm thinking dull would be nice for a change lol. Hope your doing well and again I'm sorry I missed your day. :)
