Happy Day

Hey my friends!
I was going to try to sneak by without talking about my birthday :)
But I had to tell you about my sweet surprise phone call...
My Tennessee friend, Amy, called to wish me a Happy Birthday!
She has been my encourager and prayer warrior through these last few weeks.
 I am so thankful for her friendship, wisdom, and thoughtfulness.
And she will soon be opening her ETSY shop,
selling flea market finds, along with these luxurious satin pillowcases.


Can you believe? Amy sent me a set of her pillowcases,
lovingly handmade by her mother.
Makes for a heavenly night's sleep.

God is so good.
To send me a friend, whom I desperately need during this time of my life,
and I haven't even met her.

Now, I'd like to share photos of my birthday gift from Mr. BofB...
He let me pick it out :)

 A new sparkly chandy for my kitchen!

It came from Lowe's. 
It's not an antique, but I really LOVE it.

It goes well with all of my galvanized, chippy stuff.
 My family and friends made my birthday so very special.
Date night, homemade spaghetti and meatballs, a movie, flea market goodies,
phone calls, and cards that made me cry...
what great memories to hold in my heart.

On another note, you MUST check out this new blog
a place for inspiration in decorating and gorgeous ideas.

Enjoy your day, my friends
Becky C

Happy Birthday Becky!

What more does a girl need on her birthday then a great friend and a hubby who gives the perfect gift! Your new fixture is b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. Enjoy your day. If I were you I'd be camping out under that gorgeous chandy, eating a huge piece of chocolate fudge cake, and watching the sparkle show.

Happy birthday, a couple days late! Sounds like it was a great day. And lovin your sweet new pillow cases, and I am definitely going to show your post to my hubby. He still likes to pick out presents himself. And while I desperately love him, I am not quite so enamored with the Elvis Presley charm bracelet that I got for Christmas! Hello beautiful new chandie!!! So happy for you! It looks beautiful!!!
