Birthday Goodies


One of the reasons I have not been around much, is it was my birthday. It was quite a week and would be a very long post if I shared everything. But here is a whirlwind list of my week. Beach combing, marmalade cake, cameo milk-glass plate/wall hanging ???, Christmas House Goodies, Cherve, roasted garlic, pine-nut pizza, chocolate tin (above), rose' wine with fresh peaches, Indian food, vintage tablecloths, Chocolate and Zucchini cookbook, vintage pink doll box (Thank you Linda xoxox) yummy breakfast in bed, Cranford DVD, unbelievably good grilled chicken kabobs with feta cheese dip, cameo salad bowl and so much more. It was quite a blessed birthday.


Aubern'e made me the sweetest little altered book from cards. She also surprised me with two drinks, which I will share soon. Chloe made me a beautiful fairy and a pink duck-tape wallet. You, girls are so creative and I love you more then words can say xoxoxox

You bring so much delight through your blog, and for that I thank you dearly.

Happy birthday to you. So many goodies in your post today, thank you for sharing with us all.


Happy Birthday, Clarice!! Sounds like it was a great one. And what lovely gifts! (That vintage children's lamp is too cute!).


I have just recently stumbled upon your page and THAT has been a gift for ME!!!

Happy Birthday : )


This is an "Off Topic Comment" but...I seem to have lost my knack for posting/commenting in 'Blog Land,' for a while. All I do lately, is put up a few photos, here and there. I didn't plan on it... It just happened.

And since I don't want anyone to think I got *uppity* or anything, :-) I'm leaving this comment, to explain my absence.

I'm sure to be back in not too long. Can't keep a "Chatty Person" quiet, for too long. :-)

I'm glad to see you had a wonderful birthday!
And all those goodies. I know making things out of duct tape is a pretty popular thing but I always think of the gray. But your pink wallet is very cute! You do have 2 very creative kids.
The lamp is my favorite. I so so love those vintage wooden lamps!!!!!!


Hi Clarice,
I hope you had a wonderful birthday. It sure looks, and sounds like you did.
Have a wonderful week.


Oh my, what a lovely sounding week! I'm so happy that you had a wonderful birthday, Clarice. I hope that your "new" year is equally so. Filled with beautiful surprises and all good things.

Love and all good wishes to you!


Lovely images and descriptions of a beautiful birthday week. So glad to hear you were well-celebrated!

Dear Clarice, It is certainly time I expressed my delight and gratitude for the glorious package you sent me, and told everyone how truly lovely the decorated book that you made is! It arrived safe and well and just in time for my 10th Wedding Anniversary! Thank you ((())).
How fitting to be reminded it is your birthday...for I have a package for you sitting on my schoolroom table. I won't spoil your surprise by telling you what is in it, but I do hope you will enjoy it. I hope to mail it out to you on Monday. With fondest thoughts, Gill.
