I am not usually one to *advertise* that it is my birthday - fast approaching a milestone one, which I am NOT looking forward to....! But today is my birthday and I wanted to show off my gifts... :o)
First, I sat dear hubby down in front of the computer the other day and said *Order me this for my birthday!*... He doesn't do good with hints, and so the direct approach works best! So these vintage Christmas ornaments are from him and the kids. We ordered them from Laurie at her Etsy shop here, her blog is Indulge Your Shelf. Go visit her, she has alot of cute things!
Jim also had six carnations delivered to our house:
Shirley has been a GREAT online friend to me for about 10 years now, and if you have visited her blog (here) a few weeks ago, she had shown her Galileo Thermometer. I thought it was really neat and told her so. So guess what she got me?!? Yep, my own Galileo Thermometer! SO COOL! As you can see, it is over 80* here at my desk... :o) (That is a pic of the trio at their first birthday!)
