It's My Birthday

Today is my birthday.

Painting by Linsey from The Farmhouse Porch
This is one of my favorite of her paintings!

Even Google knew it was my birthday, such a neat surprise!

As much as I like to celebrate birthdays, mine is hard to enjoy.
No, not because I am getting old-er, I enjoy each year and always look forward to the next.
It is because my mom is not here to make it special.
and, as we just celebrated Mother's Day,
 this week is always hard for me.

So, today I am going to escape to the shops.
Antique, consignment and thrift, as many as I can fit in before lunch time.
Mr. M. called with a surprise, he took a half day for me.
As much as I love that he is WILLING to shop with me.

A- I need some alone time.
B- He hates to shop, I mean drag your feet like a 3 yr. old hate!

So I am going to try and meet him for lunch.

So, if you had to shop for your own birthday present, what would you buy?

Me, I'm looking for a dresser, some chairs to reupholster and maybe some ironstone.
But, I will be happy with whatever I find.
Even if it is only lunch with a special guy.

Oh yeah, and it is baseball season, so you know where I will be tonight!


  1. Happy Birthday! I can not shop with my husband AT ALL. He always gives me the weirdest looks when I pick up some rusty old thing. Not that he means to, but he takes all the fun out of it. Hope you found something wonderful!

  2. Yes, I think that lunch would be special enough for me. Happy Birthday!

    My mother is gone as well. Someone said that losing your mother is like a club you don't want to be a member of. I hope you had a great day in every way.


  3. Happy Birthday! Your day sounds wonderful as does your lunch! I hope you have fun!!~~Angela

  4. Beautiful painting. Hope your special day is full of surprises.


I enjoy each and every comment you leave. Thanks for stopping by.
