Birthday Gifts!!!!

Well, I promise ya'll could gawk at all my treasures from the birthday party..... here they are!!!

These are all the cards...and they really meant a lot to me - I sat down Sunday afternoon and read each one and just cried my eyes out....ya'll are so sweet - I love all of you!!!!!

These are from Angela - I call her Brandi's friend, but she is my friend too, just Brandi's age...I think this was the show stopper - these iron work crosses to go on the brick wall in my patio that Paula is decorating.....two big crosses and see the little black one at the bottom...I just love them.
About 5 blogs ago I featured some purses from Sam Moon's that I really liked, Cynthia, one of the ladies I work with, ordered one for me...now I have to switch over to the new purse...that is always such a chore for me......
Everyone knows I love books so that is always a safe bet with me - I also got a Barnes and Noble gift card - one Saturday soon I will spend there - browsing and sipping coffee...it just doesn't get any better than that!!!
Now this is a jewel and the perfect color for my house - I am trying the perfect place for it - because I really want it to show...I just love it!!!
Cookbooks, my all time weakness - that is the section I head straight for in the book store - like I need another one - but there is always that jewel out there and you just don't want to miss it....I can't wait to browse through these babies!!!
I was sooooo tickled to get this - and it IS wonderful - someone blogged about this not too long ago (can't remember) and she said it was GREAT and she was sooo right!! My heels are pathetic, and this really worked on them and very quickly - just sitting on the couch watching TV.....LOVE IT!!! Thanks Tonya!!
I just love this gorgeous make-up brush from Miss Mary. Kelsi is already trying to take it from me...look at that handle...and this picture does not do it justice at all.....
Now, I know all of you will want to come to my house and take this....I was so excited to see this little lady - she will go perfect outside by my chair. She is the perfect color. I think she is just beautiful....thank you Sandra!!! And when I got to work this morning, she also had some turquoise coasters for my table outside and some cute, tiny citronella candles...
This is a beautiful journal from sweet Emily...she knows I love to write - just write - what I do is not really journaling, I just write sometimes everyday and then maybe not for a year - but I just love to make list and notes, etc. - - - - uhm, there was also some Godiva chocolate with this journal, but it didn't make the picture..........someone ate it!!!!!! Imagine that!!!!!
Isn't this necklace and earring set beautiful, Patti said she had a very hard time giving it to me...don't you hate that....you're looking for a gift for someone and you want everything you pick up for them.....I do it all the time....don't give many gifts!!!! (Smile)
2 Calphalon skillets - from Donna & Jeff - Jeff is the cook in the family and he knows his cookware!! Thank you so much - I will use them a lot!!! (I guess I could have taken the label off so you could actually see the skillets....awh - you know what they look like!!!!
...and on top of all this I got Movie Theater gift cards and restaurant gift cards and about $200 in cold hard cash!!!!
And best of all I got the money for a dishwasher from the hostesses!!!!! We picked out one at Lowes and they opted just to give me the money and let me take it from there!!! So I may price shop a little bit....what power!!!!! Mine has been broke for about 8 months so I am really looking forward to this!!!!
Again, thank you all so very much - you have made this birthday a very, very special one - Sandi at The WhistleStop Cafe said this is her 50th birthday and she said she is celebrating all year - it is her birthday YEAR!!!
Hey, I think I like that - I think you can celebrate all year when you turn 50!!!!!!!!

I think my favorite gift is the antique looking goldish colored hanging basket. That is soooo pretty!!! It would look neat hanging on a door with a few flowers inside. You sure are blessed to get the dishwasher!!!

Sandra said...

Oooohhh, I love the purse and the crosses and the Barnes and Noble card and wow, REALLY love the peacock and I love the brush and the ped-egg...oh, wait a minute, I actually HAVE a ped-egg (that'll be one less thing to swoon over with envy, thankyouverymuch! lol).

All your stuff looks totally awesome - it's even more awesome that you have such great friends. All kidding aside, I DO envy that. Friendships are precious things that should be savored and cultivated and cared for. You've obviously mastered the art!

I'm speechless! Love the crosses....love the gift certificates for a new dishwasher and books too! Heck, I love it all!
I need the ped egg too! I'll have to pick one up now that we have real people testing it out!
