Birthday Week & Giveaway!
 Yes that time  of year again! Geeze sure seems like these birthdays are coming fast and furious last five years!
 Sweet cards with wonderful sentiments delivered in mail and by hand. Sweet!
My official day is Nov 5th . Since that came on Tuesday son and DIL had us over last Sunday for the traditional BD meal!  Was yummy! Fried oysters, mac and cheese with lobster! Sadly I forgot camera! We had loads of fun! They gave me this funky red chicken! Also got to see grand dog Beamer(big choc lab) in his bumble bee Halloween outfit! A hoot!!!

So Tuesday was also voting day here in Virginia. So up at dawn to hit the poll with DH before he left for work. Lucky us ours is just a few steps up the road at a local country church!

Sweet niece took the day off to celebrate my birthday with me!
She too came bearing gifts! Just call me spoiled! Wonderful brown ship toile plate to add to may wall display.
Santa plate to hang or use on table top! See his quilted robe???  Yes almost time to get out the holiday trimmings! But love my Fall stuff up thorough Thanksgiving! Just take out the Halloween bits.
Sweet niece also heard my wail about a fav fabric almost gone and found some to order for me!!!! Yes feed old Auntie's addiction!!!!
But the biggest and best was this!! She stitched up this beautiful Blackbird Design for me!!!! OMG it is beautiful!!! Now have to decide if it will be matted and framed or become a pilla or wall hanging!!! Whatever  I decide has to be done by Day after Thanksgiving!!!!

She also took me off for that day. FUN!!!
Birthdays are always best enjoyed with those we love!!!
DH says we will do something special this weekend too!
Love my Birthday Week!!!!;-)

  12. So happy that you are enjoying all of your birthday celebrations! Keep it up :)

    I was born on Thanksgiving Day... a few years ago. I have several birthday memories that all involve family gatherings because my birthday coincided with the big holiday. That meant the celebrations were always big, lots of food and special memories.

  13. Happy Birthday Lola. How nice to know we share a birthday... You did receive lots of beautiful gifts. My favorite is the Red Rooster.
    I used to love my birthdays when we used to celebrate Guy Fawkes with fireworks... Was always such fun.

  14. Happy birthday to you...happy birthday to sounds much better in real life (NOT), but wishing you the very best for the year ahead.

  15. Happy Birthday! My fav birthday memory was when my daughter and BFF gave me a surprise birthday party for a significant year. I was totally surprised, and they gathered some of my dearest friends.

  16. Happy Birthday Lola, a bit late. One of my best birthday memories as a child was when I got a Polaroid swinger camera! Loved that camera and still dabble in photography to this day.

  17. Happy Belated Birthday!!! Don't include me in the giveaway.


Luv hear'in from ya!!
