This is a vignette on the china cupboard that caught my eye the other day, so of course I took some snapshots of it.
Some of my favorite pieces gathered together in one spot.
The green plate with the pink roses is hand painted.
This is a smart man. His horse is pulling him on his bicycle.
I'm not sure if the horse had run away and he was 'leading' him home
or what, but my father took this photo in the 1930's.
I think it's funny and a classic.
Milk glass vase with a sprig of lavender, lady's mantle and a mum.
Here's vintage photo of a vintage gal.
This is a photo of me when I was about 2 years old.
That was 59 years ago!
Yes, I'm celebrating my birthday today, July 22.
I rolled over the big one last year.
I didn't mind turning 60.
It was a milestone and I was grateful to have made it that far in life.
However, it seems my body is noticing that I hit that
milestone last year and doesn't like it at all!! :-)
I guess the best part about the past year is that I became a Grammie!
Sweet Ewan is 10 months old today. We got to skype with him and
his mother last night. They are so precious to me and I am really looking forward
to their visit at the end of August.
This is my 10th birthday party and my brother's 9th.
Yes, he will be 60 on the 26th! He's behind me on the right.
Our baby sister is 3 years younger than I (on the 19th!) and we often shared
our birthday parties. I can't remember why she isn't in this picture.
That is me in the middle in my favorite dress ever! It was black
and white poplished cotton with a crinoline under the skirt. Boy, did that
crinoline ever itch around the waist!
Do you remember dressing up in a pretty dress for a birthday?
This photo was taken last July 22 on my 60th birthday.
Murray and I went to my hometown of Moncton and had dinner at our favorite 50's style diner.
I had a fried clam platter, my favorite special treat once or twice a year. ;-)
Oh, and we also went to the Stone Cold Creamery at Tim's. YUM!
Today I am going out for lunch with 3 of my best friends and
tonight Murray is taking me out for dinner.
After all, a girl shouldn't have to cook on her birthday!
So, as I celebrate another year that God has been very gracious to give me
I am very thankful and blessed beyond measure!
I hope you will join me with Debra for Vintage Inspiration Friday at
Have a blessed day and weekend!
