My family honored me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers filled with my favorites, French White Roses and Yellow Daisies. Kaycee gave me the vintage sand pail I had found at Antiques Etc in Brunswick and the boys had Steve get the stacking suitcases from Jekyll Books at The Old Infirmary on Jekyll Island. Steve and I had dinner at Ruby Tuesday....absolutely wonderful as usual. On Saturday while Steve worked on some programming for work, Kaycee and I hit several antique shops, the mall and spent several hours at the beach. We ended the weekend with Kaycee's Baccalaureate on Sunday.
I have been working on several pieces since early morning and finally found a stopping place, so I scrubbed my hands of glues and sealers, came here to do a little catching up. If everything continues to go smooth I hope to share a few new pieces with you in the coming days.
Until next time.....Again thanks for all of the Birthday wishes.
And thanks to all of you that dropped in for the Birthday Party. Those that left a comment have been emailed requesting your mailing address as your Party Favors are ready to address and be dropped off at the Post Office.
I will share my day with you in another post, as Kaycee and I are headed to a few antique shops and Jeykll Island for the afternoon while Steve works on some programming for work in the peace and quite of our home.
Until next time.....Off to do more birthday celebrating.
BUT when I turned it over to slip my letter opener in look what I found in BIG BOLD LETTERS! So I am now sitting here looking at this envelope, picking it up, turning it over, sitting it back on my desk, picking it up again, holding it in my hands and looking at that BIG BOLD "DO NOT OPEN BEFORE MAY-O4".
Friday I will celebrate my 49th Birthday and I am having a little party starting today. Everyone that attends will receive a party favor. You can even pick out your favor (a small envelope of snippets from my antique/vintage books, papers, etc. or a package of 2 Debbie Overton Designs notecards/envelopes).

Until next time......I am working on a special project and gathering the party favors! Hope you can attend!
It was "Hoop and Hollar" at the high school this morning. Cap and Gowns were delivered and at 8:00 the soon to be grads marched through the hallowed halls of BCHS letting the entire school know that the big bad class of 2007 is about to GRADUATE! Do you know how loud 150+ kids can be hooping and hollaring? LOUD!!!! I was there along with a dozen or so other moms clicking their camera as they went from one hall to the other.

This past Friday was "Disney Grad Nite 2007" an all-night party at Walt Disney World for seniors only. From 8 pm to 4 am they had Unlimited access to the Magic Kingdom® attractions including Space Mountain®, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Splash Mountain®, The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean and more! Live music! The Fray, Cassie, Cartel, and Cheskob. Dance Parties everywhere.
KC - Always ready for the camera and having fun!!!
I did spend some time at the local hardware store this past weekend purchasing several things for a project I am working on as time permits and have been playing with some wonderful old letters, photos and buttons that were recently given to me. One of KC's friends mom came by a few weeks ago and we had a wonderful visit. A few days later KC came home with a package that Janna's mom had sent me.....wonderful old buttons to add to my collection. And then on Prom night we had several of the girls and their dates meet here before heading off to Prom and in comes Janna with not one but two bags of things her mom had sent me.
Some of the buttons came from Karen's mother and her grandmother plus some she had picked up at an antique shop. The photos are all really old from tiny to 11 x 14. There was a huge stack of papers, but the stack of letters you can see in the center of photo was the best. This stack of letters was the correspondence between a Dr. Campbell in South Carolina and Miss Eula of Georgia. They were married October 20, 1915 and opened a drug store/soda fountain in Nahunta just up the highway from me. These letters were found in the house they lived in which Karen's relatives live in now. They gave the collection of letters and photos to Karen's mother. I can't wait for Karen to see what I am working on using some of the treasures she has shared with me.
Until next time.....off to another senior activity, then it's back to work on my project. Please remember us here in Southeast Georgia. The wildfires continue to cause more damage. The smoke has been rather heavy here again today and this morning we actually had ashes on the vehicle.
