2.4.09

Good morning!

Today is my 40th birthday and I'm doing a pretty vintage giveaway! The only prerequisite is that you love vintage things and will use them. :) I pulled a ton of goodies from my stash - vintage music, score sheets, bingo card, laces, trims, velvet ribbon, postcards, letter, distress ink, glittered embellishments, old buttons, millinery flowers, and even a tin of gorgeous Martha Stewart aquamarine fine glitter. I couldn't fit it all in one photo, so be sure to click on the photos for close ups.

Just leave a comment to enter the drawing and I'll choose a winner Thursday morning. I'm off for a full day at the SPA, courtesy of my wonderful husband and son. :)

Happy Happy Happy Birthday! What a wonderful thing to celebrate - YOU! And by the way, i blame you for my now official "obsession' with all things Vintage. I just found this amazing antique house and picked up some really fun treasures for your class at Inspired. My dilemma... Do I use these finds in art or do I wear them?? Happy Day - you are Fabulous and 40!

Happy, HAPPY Birthday Jennifer :) Today is also my Dad's birthday & would have been Jims' Dads birthday. But it's also a sad day for Jim as he also lost his Mom on February 4th, 1986 :(

Lovin' all the vintage stuff & you KNOW I would use it all! Actually, it would be perfect for the album I want to do for my dh of his Mom & Dads wedding pictures. His Mom meant the world to him & sadly, I never got to meet her :(

Hope you have a wonderful day at the spa.....you deserve it! You know what they say.....40 is the new 30 :) Or is it 20? ;)

Hi Jennifer,
Enjoy your special day. Your husband and son are very special to realize sometimes a lady needs a day like this all to herself.

If you remember I'm the lady with the arm issues at Inspired that help sell the lace. Dawn was so gracious and let me have some. But I need all of your beautiful extra so I can finally so something creative with Dawn's beautiful lace. Thanks for the chance.
