Today is my birthday!
I have many birthday and tea things to share with you
 but today I am keeping it simple.

Isn't this little guy the cutest thing EVER?
Isn't the artist* absolutely amazing?
 That lil mousie looks REAL!

My eldest daughter gave this to me when she took me
 to afternoon tea for an early birthday lunch on her day off.
I will be sharing all that with you soon as well.

*Original artwork credited to the incredibly talented Revelle Taillon
The card was purchased from her Etsy shop.
I am so blessed in so many ways.
This is a truly happy birthday!

  13. Oh my gosh Michele HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I didn't realize our birthdays were so close. Mine was 10 days ago but I honestly quit counting. My mind says I'm 25 (at least thats the way I think) but my bod says 'Oh no you're not!' I know you're a heck of alot younger than I am so you can still keep counting. :) I LOVE the mouse and the card. What a terrific daughter you have. I look forward to meeting her someday. It seems to me your whole family is incredible!!! Hope you have had a WONDERFUL wonderful birthday. I'm singing to you so hope you can hear it.

    Luv ya girlfriend!

  17. Oh Happy Birthday, girl! I hope it was fun! I've been running around a lot and a stinkin' visitor, but I took a spin and saw your beautiful home post. I didn't know about the Northcoast. What a wonderful place to grow up! No wonder you are homesick! Love your sweet mousy birthday card. My heart is never far from that kind of whimsey. squeak! hugs

  18. Daughters are the best and they know their mamas! Happy Birthday to you. What a sweet sweet card.
