You made my day--
and 'yes' it was--
This year was the 'quietest' birthday I have had in a long time--
but I still had me some fun!!!
and I do really want to thank everyone for the comments yesterday--
I really was startin to worry if anyone was reading--
I don't mind that you don't leave comments--
just as long as you are still reading me and enjoying the posts!!!

So what did I do to celebrate today--
I started my morning off as usual--
breakfast and then some hand quilting-- actually worked on the Sunbonnet Sue block of her blowing out her birthday candles--how cute!!!
Then decided I needed to shopping--
here is the stash when I got home--
Oh you can't see anything--
well let's unload the bags--
this is from the paper bag--what is it--have no idea--but I liked it--
it is wood with alot of 'dirt and such' on it--nice wood under it--
only I kind of like it this color??????
Got this at my antique shop up on the hill--
and Sherman gave me this--
Little --
tea cup and saucer for my birthday and to go in the doll china cabinet--pretty!!!
at the other shop up on the hill--
I still had some credit--and I wanted to use it up--
so here is what I got from there--
three drinking glasses--
two little cups--that just spoke to my heart!!
a cute silver spoon, glass frog, and an old wood hanger--
not sure how I am going to use the hanger or where--
but I do know that I have lots of stuff that will display nice on it!!!!

Now to back up this story--a wee bit!!!
I left here at 11:30am--but the shops up on the hill did not open until noon--
so I just had tooooo---
shop in the quilt shop which was open--until noon--right????
and here is my 'loot' from there--
the two magazines where older issues and on sale for $2 each--
and I have already found a couple patterns in each of them that are now on my 'to make' list!!!!
And I made one more stop--
at our animal thrift shop--
Do you see what is on top of the bag????
Remember about a year ago I got the doll on the right side from there---
she is a hand made one--
but the new gal is boughten as it has a cloth body and no markings that I can find--
but then I bought her to keep dolly#1 company-soooo!!!
guess I need to name my two new gals, hu?????
any suggestions????
After reading for a couple hours after lunch--
I did clean up the white dresser--
and it is white against the doll cabinet!!!
I have to find something to paint over this cabinet--
but that means sanding, and dust--neither of which agrees with me!!!

One more quick story--
about Miss Gracie--
My daughter sent me an email birthday card--
it is 5-6 cats singing Happy Birthday--
well--Miss Gracie heard it and she went nuts--
and she ran around here actually --growling--
like a dog--it was really funny!!!

Hugs, Di and a growling kitty!!!!!
