Another Year and Silver Bella 2010

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted but family health issues kept me busy. I am happy to report everyone is home and well now.

Yesterday was my birthday and I had a wonderful day. It started with hugs and cards from my husband and the kidlings. Then off to a local flea market with many fun finds including a large rabbit cookie cutter from 1928 and a large collection of vintage flower catalogs also from the 1920's. Each of the pictures in the catalogs were hand drawn and painted, a real deal for $5!

A beautiful basket of flowers arrived in the afternoon from my mother in Los Angeles. I have never seen an arrangement with so many varieties. I think I counted 25 different types of flowers.

Next was an art date with my friend Lisa . She surprised me with a beautiful inspiration box filled with ephemera. All the lovely bits and pieces put together in that SUPER way that only Lisa can . We created the day away and had a great time trying out different ideas for our projects.

The day ended with a spicy dinner out with the family at P.F. Changs. My favorite has always been Chang's Spicy Chicken but now I have discovered their Ginger Chicken and their is no going back! Delicious!

My latest spluge, I am going to Silver Bella next fall. Crazy that sign ups start so early but I am thrilled to have a place at their next extravaganza. This will be my first time and the 5th anniversary of the artistic soiriee. Anyone want to join me in Omaha, Nebraska next November?
