Hi there...my beautiful sister Michelle is turning the big 50 tomorrow...she is the queen of crafters, she hand sews the most amazing quilts, the most beautiful teddy bears...amongst so many other talents...happy birthday beautiful sister...xxx
Here is the card I made her for her birthday...she loved it...

So...the next thing I would love to show you is my wonderful set of yellow retro glasses I got from another local thrift shop...these are so delish in the flesh...i just had to christen them on my window sill in the kitchen with tea lights...oh so pretty...pretty cool aren't they!!!!

what a lovely card for your sister and I like all those lights and the bag you have made. I havent been doing much crafty stuff either as have been enjoying the heatwave we have been having..it nearly always rains here!

So very pretty! I love the glow and it must have been stunning with the yellow. Beautiful card and a very happy birthday to your Sister.
And thank you for the comment about the log / bark thing that I took the picture of - It was in the snow: a little piece of a tree or something that was completely round - with that bright green moss. It looked to me like a little fairy should live in there . . . Kristin xo

I had a great time strolling through your blog Mandy! Super fun stuff! And thankyou for your comments.. I really apprieciate them. Today when your wrote.. "your blog post photos made me smile".... it was the nices comment ever and just what I needed to hear. As a blogger you know how it is.. blogging takes a lot of time .. and sometimes you can wonder if it's worth it. lol
If a photo makes one person smile... cool! Then it's worth it!
Have a great day!

Hi Friend!
Okay, so the thing that made me laugh the most was the matching pajamas!! So so true, right! Never have them matching here either . . .
Have a good night (or is it day there now?)
