"borrowed" the pic above from the best party planner/artist, A Fanciful Twist  

Did I really turn 41 yesterday? According to my mother I did. She calls me every year on this momentous occasion and promptly starts singing "Happy Birthday" when I answer the phone. (imagine Marilyn Monroe but with a child like tone) It's not a birthday with out her doing this and I actually love that I'm 41 and my mommy calls me to sing to me.
It seems everyone in blogland knew it was my day. Martha's show was all about blogging, beautiful PAPER dresses were posted for Project Blogway, I discovered Design This Design That online magazine, love it! Anyone having extra cash sitting around (HA!) can take a look at my favorite things and send them my way, LOL!
What you can really do is support these 2 moms. $5.00 or more really adds up if a lot of people contribute. 
Well I better get back to work and get started on my next 40 years?! Hugs and prayers for everyone! 
P.S. If you have a birthday coming up... I can have my mom call you, just send me your number!

Crazy about this!

I have really flipped over this chandelier! I am a lighting fanatic.
I'm thinking of making some lights with this concept, just for me.
I'll let you know how it goes!

Never give a 10 year old this unless....

Never give a 10 year old this unless:
You want 12 calls from the backyard, bedroom ,bathroom...
You want her Aunt to be texted  at 1:53 AM
And 2:15AM
And 6:15 AM
You want pictures of her sleeping with it
You like candid photos of you looking horrid
You only want to communicate via the phone
You want her to give ALL our neighbors the number
You like hearing 10,000 times "Thank You Mommy, I love it!"
