So? 50!

Well! I'm 50 and still standing. LOL! 
It has been a wonderful birthday week. 
Lots and Lots of Happy Birthday wishes and 
thoughtful gifts.  An old gal just couldn't ask for more.

(these are some sweet cupcakes that a friend made for me)

The weekend was full of fun stuff. Fun to me anyway. 
Hubs got the back yard seeded for winter grass. We're crossing our 
fingers and looking for green. Last years lawn was so gorgeous! 
Maybe we will be blessed again.

I bought this home 9 years ago and every single window had plastic vertical blinds. 
This weekend saw the joyous farewell of the last of those. 

As the last set of wooden blinds were hung and the last of the loud, dirty, dated, plastic vertical blinds existed... I did a little happy dance singing .... Clackity Clack don't look back! See YA! 
So happy about that little update! 

 He also hung my stained glass piece in the transom of our bedroom.  It looks so pretty and the colors are perfect.

I'll show you the whole hallway in 
another post later. 

Also got some Crochet work done.... Love these colors!
More of that later too...

Have Fun!

I'll be joining Marty for another Tabletop Tuesday.
