Birthday Fun!

My niece celebrated her 9th birthday party this weekend! There was a basketball theme which meant the Boston Celtics!

My sister in law asked me if I could make bracelets for all the girls attending. How cute are these? Yes the Celtics colors are green and white but they have incorporated black in some of the merchandise. Black is cooler than white at this age anyway!

The birthday girl got bonus pieces! She also received a matching necklace, earrings and bookmark!

The prior weekend I celebrated mine! It was a great weekend spending it with friends on Saturday night and family on Sunday. Jim gave me the most beautiful bouquet yet!

He also got me a 3 sexy little dresses which I joke are more for him than me! Here is one of them.

I can't wait to wear these!

More flowers are blooming this week in my garden!

I'm looking forward to my tulips blooming!!! Some of the bulbs look close to opening! Until next week! Thank you for reading. ~Val

  3. Love the Boston Celtics pieces! That first one is my favorite. :D Also like your dress. Looks so fun to wear! And your flowers made me smile today. ^__^ It's still snowing here, but flowers soon, hopefully. I feel a little sad for the daffodils that bloomed early. The cold is not being kind to them.

    You must have had such fun making those bracelets :) My friend's daughter just turned 10 and the excitment I get when she gets a piece of jewelry given to her makes me want to bring her something every day :)
