Ok is that wrong to wish yourself a Happy Birthday - yup I think it's all right since it is the BIG 50 there don'tcha ya know. Thanks for all the sweet birthday greetings from the last post that meant so much to me. I still chuckle when I think about that day and how they totally surprised me.
I talked about how truly lucky Mr. Farmhouse and I are to have the wonderful friends that we do. That goes out there in bloggy land as well - I've been blessed with many emails and cards from some bloggers today and I want you all to know how much it means when someone remembers and sends a little happy thought and wish. I even got an email today from a woolie who is visiting out on the west coast and didn't have her date book with her but was pretty sure today was the day (thank you JM) - lordy I can hardly remember with a date book, LOL. One of my my son's friends wrote a birthday greeting on my wall on Facebook, (not sure how that all works) which was a sweet surprise. While I was out this morning I had to stop at the Post Office and pick up a package that they had tried to deliver but I wasn't home. I was pretty sure that it was some books that I had bought on Ebay - ones that Linda had shown on a post and I decided I needed them as well, so I waddled over to Ebay and bingo found them. But that wasn't the box, it was a surprise box from Wendy and what a surprise it was. Wendy's birthday was this past weekend and I sent her a birthday email - singing Happy Birthday. She went waaaaaay beyond sending an email - this is what she sent my way
look at this ADORABLE back pack - oh my goodness I've never seen anything like it and it's WOOL - how dang cute is this - I just love it and can't wait to use it - her stitching is beautiful - I just love this Wendy
and this adorable little quilt that she showed on her blog that I was drooling over, I'm lovin the colors, a sweet needle keeper with needle felted heart on it, a darling wool mat with stars (my favorites) and a sweet red heart, plus a wonderful card
I was honestly totally overwhelmed by her kind and generous heart. I truly feel not worthy of such a wonderful gift and I will treasure this for years to come as well as her friendship. I'm tucking these treasures away for the new house. When special things have come my way over the last few months that's what I've been doing - tucking away to enjoy when this move is complete. Thank you again sweet Wendy - the colors in that little quilt are perfect for the new house. Your friendship is one of my blessings.
Saturday Mr. Farmhouse, S#2 and I headed down to St. Cloud to meet S#1 and DIL for a birthday lunch, S#1's birthday was in Jan and mine is today. What a great way to spend some time together. It's a town about half way for each of us with great spots to eat. Tonight Mr. Farmhouse is taking me out to dinner and has something special planned for this weekend - can't beat
that can ya.
So in honor of my birthday I'm going to do a giveaway - leave a comment by telling me what your favorite birthday treat is to have on your special day. Mine is dessert with chocolate or caramel or better yet have both in it. The winner will get the braided table runner (size is 13x36) in this picture, a set of 3 small bowls ( I will be adding these bowls as well as the bigger table runners to the website in the next few days) and a McCalls candle in Apple Spice.
I will have Mr. Farmhouse pick a number on Friday night for the winner and get it in the mail on Monday.
Until Next Time
