My Pink Birthday.

Hello Pinkies and dear readers! First of all, let me thank you for all the sweet wishes, it was impossible for me to respond to each and every comment last weekend, but please know I was really touched by your friendship and nice words. Thank you!
I took all these pictures on my Birthday. First thing in the morning I treated me (hubby and Kim too!) to a fresh bouquet freshly cut in the garden...

I love all Spring flowers, they are my B-day flowers after all!

The day was truly glorious, such a great gift after previous damp and dull days!

Forget-me-nots are blooming everywhere in the garden. Kim loves to lie down on the flower carpet, and just relax and be happy!

Hellebores are among my favorite flowers to paint, they're so charming.

Hubby was home with me all day, so I thought it was the best occasion to try the 'new' dishes (vintage and thrifted)! I was so lucky to find other pieces matching the sauce- boat I had previously found. Those posies are so pretty, aren't they?

And last, but not least, a touch of pink in a beautiful gift I received from Carolyn! The cutest sheep ever with a pink bow made it safe and sound all the way from New Zealand to wish me Happy Birthday! Carolyn makes amazing dough creations, and I love them all, so I was very thrilled to receive one as birthday gift (and this was my very favorite too)!
Thank you dear Carolyn!

She took great care in writing me sweet notes, and she added a decorated tea bag... so delicate.
I haven't taken pictures of the wrapping, but Carolyn used the most beautiful hydrangea paper with a blue ribbon! So very thoughtful!

Definitely I had a grand day! I will show what my hubby gave me, but it's not pink, so I saved it for White Wednesday :)
Enjoy the weekend, and don't forget to drop by my blog tomorrow for the Vintage Easter Blog Hop Party!

  18. Monica, Happy Belated Birthday!!!

    I'm so sorry I have been MIA. We had a birthday celebration for Claudie (Bubblin' Over) who came to Florida from Canada to celebrate, and I haven't had computer access at our getaway where the party took place. And I'm going to be MIA again in an effort to get some things done on the house and in the hopes that the people who are coming to look at it are going to be its new owners provided. Whatever happens, please keep us in your prayers. It would be greatly appreciated.
