November 17

Hi everybody I wanted you to know I am going over and down the Medicare Hill LOL

It's my Birthday .

For some of you younger gals that sounds so old and it does to me also I can't believe I'm this,will say  Aged and Matured in life . LOL However real glad to still be here.

I took myself out for a fabulous evening dinner at the University Club in the Reynolds Alumni Center on campus  here where I work part time still. Friday evening)
Missouri Beef and St. James Wine Dinner

Standing Prime Rib Roast
Grilled Top Sirloin Roulade
Sliced Chilled Tenderloin on Croustades also much more
Wines from St James Winery
Recipes from Chef Daniel Pliska's  Newly authored Pastry and Dessert Book

Wines from St James Winery and it was all red wine and my favorite for the evening was Norton red wine, first red wine I ever really enjoyed.

Then tonight birthday cake and ice cream , my 7 year old Grandson made my cake LOL he  loves to bake and I know it will have sprinkle's all over it , just like I like it

I'm in the studio this morning working on a few little projects, I am making spool Christmas trees where you put a little bottle brush tree on a wood thread spool. I don't have pictures to show yet. These things below I made last year and put them on the table for inspiration

I love all the things we put in old jars , this is a vintage peanut butter jar with a little fluted tin in bottle for boot to set on.
I have a few errands to do this morning so I know I won't get my fun projects completed but will still be working on them, I want to make a pretty tag off all white and I have plenty of white vintage material and lace to use.
Thanks for stopping by on my special day


I just love this little white cotton ball tree I got at Target a few couple years ago
