We just had a lovely weekend hanging out with family and friends and eating a ton of cake - for which now I am congested and bloated... ugh! Serves me right for adopting a total "YES" policy on eating everything sweet... I think that last truffle did me in... but it did me in so sweetly!!! LOL! I came home on Friday evening to these beautiful flowers waiting outside my door from my sweet friend Brooke (my fellow Cinema Sister) - I couldn't believe it - I had just talked to her earlier that day and had no idea of anything like this arriving - awwww - it felt like she was there herself giving me a hug!!!! I love that the vase is green (my fave color) and that the ribbon was polka dotted (my liquid pearl dot obsession) and the flowers were so bright and jewel toned - my favorite color palate!!! She told all of these details to the flower store in town and they created this beautiful present for me :)
These flowers smelled amazing! And they are sitting in our living room making me smile every time I walk in!!! Thank you dearest Brooke!!!
And thank you to all who posted birthday cards and sent greetings - Thank you dearest Radha Didi for everything and all your beautiful presents!!! This birthday has really been the best ever - and I feel so utterly grateful from the bottom of my heart to have such amazing and loving friends!!! You ROCK! I love that this weekend was a 3 day weekend for Labor Day and so I had an extra chance to clean up my stamp corner - so I thought I would take a picture of it while it was still clean - cause I know that it will not stay this clean for long!!!!
I always DROOL when I see so many gorgeous stamp rooms - decorated so nicely with gorgeous furniture and tons of crafting products and yumminess!!! There are so many oooo's and aaaahhh's and I always wish I had my own room - but we just don't have the space in our little place for that - so I get a corner in our bedroom... that is sneakily taking up more of our bedroom slowly :)
My DH has been AWESOME about the fact that our bedroom can at times become a tornado - I should get some caution tape and tape around it so that there can be a path to walk around the bedroom to where he can get to his dresser :). I wish my little corner was more "Martha" but I am waiting for us to move into a bigger house where I can have my own room and I can really decorate my space nicely - in the meantime - I tried to put as much "green" color around me - it always makes me happy :)
There is not that room for storage and the downside of that is that I can't buy too much stuff (which is the upside for my DH) but the upside for me is that I have to use what I have because there isn't that much space to store it. My computer is always next to me when I craft so that I can watch a movie and make a card - part of the reason that it takes me forever! to create one card!! But I love sitting down at my little corner in the evening after the wee ones go to bed and creating a card :)
Anyhow - thanks for letting me ramble on a bit and share some pictures! I hope that you are enjoying your Monday and that your week is off to a great start!!!
