About Me

My photo
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

It was MY BIRTHDAY! Friday, October 30, 2015

What a Great Day...

It should always be fun to CELEBRATE!

I wanted to share the AMAZING Gifts I got from my friends on My Birthday!

These are gifts from people that I have never met!  HOW awesome is THAT!!

These people have become friends because of common interests, and YES, it is probably easier to be friends with people you have NEVER met...ROFL...

This was my birthday present to ME.. Made by the absolutely talented Wendy Young of Olde Moonlane Primitives

Christine is one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met!  She is talented, funny, giving, supportive...I wonder if the wool on that sheep is real...it felt AMAZING!

This is so special.  Lisa lives close to where they have a SECONDS FIESTA WARE sale and I LOVE this stuff!  I had told her that I think of her most every time I turn mine over to wash it...She bought these and painted them for me...She didn't know I would get them on my birthday...SOOOOOO special...and the sweetest note was enclosed.

Lisa sent me this gift as a JUST BECAUSE gift, but funny that it got here on my birthday...Aren't these two pins great and THAT snowman ornament is Fabulous!!

Wendy's Aunt made these for me!!  I LOVE them...and chocolate and a hand made dish cloth...and Charcoal's ornament is just THE BEST EVER!!

I LOVE these...a sitting frog and a frog magnet and CANDY...and yes, this is where Charcoal STOLE the snickers...ugh...I think Lisa must use a ruler to cut her paper...I have never seen such PERFECTLY wrapped gifts...I just put on mine that Charcoal wrapped them!  ;)

Wendy and Her Aunt Sheree designed the frog and Sheree made it...there is soap, Candy and FROG CANDY!!  Oh and a kitty pop that Wendy made!!Another very special gift!!

The frogs sure did remind me of my mother...It is fun getting this collection going...My friends REALLY must want me to find my prince...kissing all those TOADS has gotten old, so ONLY PRINCES from now on!  ;)

Getting these gifts, made me WANT to be more thoughtful...I wish I would remember birthdays and special days, but it just isn't what I do...I do other things, and that is ok!

Wendy, Sheree, Christine, Lois, and Lisa....THANK YOU VERY MUCH, said the BIG MOUTH FROG!!

I got a lot of FB wishes yesterday too...PLEASE KNOW that I did finally find them to READ them, but they would NOT let me comment on them....I have tried EVERYTHING I know to do...SO please accept my big old huge THANK YOU!  I did not delete any and I wish I could explain what happened, but I have no answers...I just can apologize and move on...

Thank you for helping to make my day special...I look forward to MANY new adventures as I hopefully journey ONE MORE TIME around the SUN...I wish you MANY BLESSINGS...~charlotte
