august 2015 was the year destined for me to turn 70 and i made it ............. happy about that
some of those who i spend alot of my time with gathered at a friend's home to celebrate the birthday and it was lovely thankyou ! it was going to be a surprise, but there was a leak
this was delivered on the day before from a friend who was not with me to celebrate, it is so simply beautiful
then there were the colours of the gathering organised
a beautiful table set, this old girl, a friendly title, goes to such detail and everything had to be colour coordinated, there were strict rules to follow
this was all about me and for me !!!
trish and annie
denise and carol
jenny in her new red glasses (envy) simone and sharyn
gina and carol ( so many hands needed to light the sparklers )
and me the birthday girl !
gloria and marilyn
and there was very weak tea !
and some beautiful gifts, so many made by my clever friends and others too, just so pleased about for me to play with ...........
queen of many things including making a nice cup of tea ! the crown is on a pillowcase
back to my childhood and love of colouring in, so beautiful
colouring in crochet ! a really gorgeous rug !
and more pressies in the mail
i did mention the queen thing, i must have a reputation
this lovely orchid, i was spoilt, thankyou so much everyone for the good wishes, lets hope there will be many more to celebrate
if you didn't make it in the photos, i was being kind and did not publish any dodgy ones, didn't want to be in the bad books
