Another Year Older ..

Hello my dear friends,

it was my birthday yesterday and I had such a lovely day!
My daughters both baked me a lovely cake ...

... and decorated it with real flowers like lavender and forget-me-not and ...

... they even dyed the batter a pale purple color ...

... to match the fresh lavender.

I received lovely cards ...

... from family and friends ...

... and lovely gifts too.

In the morning I received two gifts from my husband and daughters ...

... a new guardian angel pendant ...

... that I now wear with my cross and heart and the neatest thing is that it jingles every time I move now and I love it!

I was also gifted with a new key chain for my keys ...

... and a new purse which were both from Roots!
Not only that ... but I was also taken out for a lovely dinner too and finally ...
... my future son-in law gave me a gift card to one of my favourite stores.
My daughters and I spent a lovely day out at the flea market ~ my husband is away with work - and we headed to the beach at Lake Huron afterwards but didn't stay long because it was quite cold out but I did take a few photos to share with you.

 The beach looks amazing ... so peaceful.
All in all I had the most lovely day and I was gifted with so many lovely gifts.
My family is always so generous to me.
Thank you my loved ones for your kindness ~ I love you so much!
I wish all you lovely bloggers a beautiful day today!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind,
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.


  1. Dear Karen

    Such a beautiful gifts you received from your family.
    The beach at Lake Huron looks wonderful, once the weather is warmer it will be filled with people.

    Thank you for for visiting me - I knew it was one of your crocheted butterflies - I've always loved them so I was thrilled to discover it in Suzy's book - thank you!
