Birthday week fun!!
What a fun week it has been with my parents visiting!! We celebrated my birthday by eating at Pasados (I adore Mexican food!) and we had a yummy white cake with buttercream frosting, which is my favorite! Then I got to open my wonderful presents!! Here are a few of the goodies my sweet mama gave me..... two adorable vintage embroidered linens with scottie dogs, some pretty trims and buttons,
this gorgeous vintage dishtowel (faded just perfectly!),soft pretty sheet music and perfectly coordinating vintage wallpaper,this amazing vintage tablecloth- also faded to perfection,sparkling goodies for making art and a necklace pendant I can personalize with my own artwork or photo,
this pretty crazed plate, more vintage trims,lots of my favorite candy,and this amazing vintage hat!! I had some fun creating a vignette inspired my fabulous new hat and sheet music.
And of course, whenever my sweet mama visits we always must go antiquing!! These photos are from my favorite antique store called "Gatherings" in Georgetown.
The serenity of white.
Cute, cute stuff!!! Love the vintage toys and dolls!!

Here is my dad with my littlest guy. My dad is so sweet to always keep the kids busy so mama and I can have some kid free fun.Here is my cutie in front of one of my favorite antique stores called "Rough and Ready" in Georgetown.
I had such a fun week! Sadly, my dad had to go home after a week, but my mama gets to stay for another week!! So there is more fun to be had!

Hi Michelle,

Happy Belated Birthday!! What lovely gifts you received from your mother and what a pretty vingnette you made of some of them. Our tastes are so similar it amazes me. I think we would have a blast shopping together (if we can keep from fighting over all the goodies we find!!). Take care and enjoy the time you get to spend with your mom.
