HOME for my Birthday!



I've enjoyed doing a makeover of our living room over the past few months.
Replacing the 'shabby chic white' look with lots of color has been fun.
I'll share more of the changes later.


This year I'm enjoying celebrating my Birthday here at home today.
No big trip to a faraway place as in several past years.
Speaking of 'years' - they are flying by fast now that I'm in my seventies,
 but I'm very thankful for every single one.

A beautiful sunny day here, starting out cool and crisp, promising to 
be calm, warm, and as perfect as a late October Birthday can be.

  1. Happy, happy Birthday, dear Mary. Mine is coming up soon. I'm also in my seventies and enjoying every minute of it. So, have a great day, eat a very large piece of birthday cake and don't feel guilty at all.

  2. Happiest of Birthdays to you, dear Mary! I hope you have a wonderful day in your cozy home and feel truly celebrated. The new look in your living room is welcoming and warming, with lots of texture and pretty things. I especially like the yellow floral pillow.
    Have a wonderful day (from another late October birthday person).

  10. Happy Birthday, dear Mary!!! Time flies... I am going to be 50 in less than 6 months, and I intend to have a big party - too big for hosting it at home this time :-)
    Your "new" living room looks great; I am not at all keen on animal print, but I love the armchair with the patterned yellow cushion.
