how stinkin’ cute is this?

22 Nov

my party invitation:

i can’t believe the little bugger is going to be 3. 3 years old! OMGosh where does time fly to? so as you can guess, ian is all about construction equipment. i wonder where that comes from……? clever wording on the invite: please join us for a birthday bash with bowling, burgers and brats! construction site: dells bowl project date: saturday. clock in: 4pm. break-time: 6pm. good job making the invites carin!! way cute.

and since we’re in party talk, thanks a ton for all the birthday wishes and pressies! here’s my loot:

who doesn’t need new dish cloths and towels? love the smiling spoon and you KNOW i love me some ric rac!!! and it’s all pink and all mine! thanks kris!

yum. love worded fabric. colors a bit off in my pic. in real life it’s luscious. it’s a lovely line from moda called authentic by sweetwater. thanks chris!

i have a pile of fiesta dishes but i really really wanted the new chocolate brown. yea me! i now have 4 chocolate sets to go with 3 sets of pink (need to find me an old pink set that no-one wants). someday after hunting season i’m going to draft scott into a little kitchen update and the color scheme is… guessed it! pink and brown. scott is thrilled. so anyhoo, thanks carin & family and scott for the new dishes!

technically is it a birthday gift if you say “can i have it?” the day before your birthday? i think so and it’s mine now!!! mom’s friend was cleaning out her basement and didn’t want this lovely. it’s crazy pieced (literally) and the fabrics are just a delight to look at. there is no batting in and nothing to stabilize the top and back. not sure what my plan is…probably to take it apart, add a batting and simple quilting. thanks mom (from your greedy child)

tea for two….(and yeah, i can’t remember any other words) a little longaberger tea set. now, if i could only get someone to come for tea! i suppose if i was serving treats, the boys would suffer through it, but really, shouldn’t i have a little girl for tea someday?!?!? thanks karen!

a couple gifts didn’t make the photo session…kel gave me a lovely pink necklace and a bottle of bubbly. the bubbly is long gone! and crystal gave me a subscription to a magazine which hasn’t started yet. thanks girls!

all in all, it was a lovely day to turn 49 and get presents!

    That is some pile of goodies. Love the all. Ian is getting so big. My oldest granson, Cody, will be 15 in January and I still think of him as a small tyke. They do grow up fast.

    You left a question on my blog about the SewEzi table. I didn’t have a way to let you know I answered the question…so, I thought I’d leave you a comment. If you go to my blog ( and type “SewEzi” into the Search box in the upper left-hand corner of the page, it will take you to the SewEzi post which contains my answer in a comment.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you’ll visit again. (I enjoyed visiting your blog, by the way.)
