Birthday Smiles

Yesterday was the big day for me!  I'm not there yet, but that big 50 is just a few years away!  No fear here...bring it on!  It's just a number anyway, right?

I must confess that I disobeyed doctor's orders and proceeded on with a scheduled trip to Atlanta.  I can't help myself, we're ramping up for Spring and I've got buying to do!  I'm on the scout for new Spring goodies to debut at Serendipity Market!  I found some fabulous things yesterday, but I'm just getting started!

Thanks to technology, even though I was out of town it didn't interfere with birthday wishes from some of my funny friends!  It was so nice to log-in last night and find birthday surprises! 

They made me smile and I wanted to share a few...

My friend Lynn sent this to me, or as she refers to me, "Ellie Mae".



My friend, Denise, wanted me to know that I share the same birth year as
Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Seal.
Really?!! What a comforting piece of trivia!

And, the one that brought a huge smile, a video from my friend Rick.



Thank you for the birthday smiles, my days are special because of the friends that fill them!

I'd like to celebrate my thoughtful friends with a giveaway, a $25 gift certificate for the shoppe (includes online boutique too).  Just leave a comment to enter.

Okay, we're off for another day of treasure hunting for Spring goodies!  Wish me luck - Serendipity Market isn't far off!  Aren't you excited?  I know I am!

Happy Birthday, LaurieAnna! I had one of those birthdays myself in October {closer to 50 now then 40}. How fun it must be to be out looking for things, although I imagine it must be hard to pick and choose among everything you're seeing.

Happy Birthday! I know you're having fun at Market. My mom used to have a dress shop and I loved going to market with her. I hope you're finding lots of goodies. I hate that I missed you in Jan. at Canton. I came and shopped again. Hope you are feeling better.

Happy birthday!
Glad you are feeling well enough to 'disobey' doctors orders, but make sure not to over-do!
Sounds like you share your birth year with some pretty good company!

Laurie Anna,
Happy belated birthday. Atlanta is one of my favorite places. I've never been to the gift mart there, but imagine you have to put on your jogging shoes and pace yourself! I've been to the golf trade show there and you can't begin to see it all...amazing! Have fun and hope your find some spring treasures.
