Welcome everyone to my birthday party!

My dear children and best friend chose a 'postcard' theme
for my birthday party! 

They all know how much I love old postcards.  Lindsey made the big postcards
on the wall.  Isn't she creative!

I received many beautiful old postcards as gifts.  I was just overwhelmed.
My friend even won a beautiful old postcard album full of cards on ebay!
I was totally blowed away.

I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks some images from the
beautiful cards I received.  I also got an Enid Collins purse, a piece of Hull pottery and
charms for my Pandora bracelet! 

Today, the 24th, is my birthday.  We celebrated last evening. 
If you've read our blog for very long, you know we think birthdays
are special. 
Have a beautiful Saturday!
