This and That on Sunday


Thank you so very much for my Birthday Greetings yesterday. I don't know how you knew it was the actual day. I have been celebrating each day of the month of September to keep you from truly knowing. My husband returns from his Home Alone trip today, birthday cake soon to follow!


Speaking of birthday wishes, are you smiling ear to ear over Diane's,  Etsy Shop, Scrabble wishes and kitten? Numbered vintage birthday cards are my absolute favorite.



In other crafting news, "Six white pom poms, 3 wooden beads, 4 orange buttons, etc, etc, etc,"  What a Cute as Can Be way to hold the tiny little items you need for a project. Michaels summer clearance rack, (.49 cents apiece),  Yo Yos and vintage buttons are added by mE.


My gosh, how time is flying by now that fall has officially begun. Even quicker still is my eagerness to visit each blog to see all of your wonderful Halloween crafts. (Pattern found here.).



And speaking of Halloween, have you gotten your Magpie-Ethel yet? May I tell you I have come to a realization about the style of crafting of my favorite artist. IT'S ALL IN THE LEGS! Just look at the stance of this witch, un huh. You can see Laurie standing like this, can't you? Her personality is wonderfully bold.


My characters, on the other hand, all have straight legs. They say about me I am someone who always follows the rules.What do your craft legs say about you?


Vintage Halloween supplies are very hard to find; so What's on Hand came to the rescue again.


A little hot glue does the trick!


How cute are these hanging from my Cutie Pie Cottage garland? And the view outside my craft room window?


Gloriously beautiful on a This and That Sunday!

How I loved these vintage type birthday candle holders when I was growing up. I'd love to have a few. I sent you an email how I figured out your birthday, hope you got it. Have a wonderful week!

I already sent you your presents, but I knew your birthday was yesterday because you told me two years ago. Did you open the other gifts I gave you?

I'll take anything you wanna send my way, you know I'm a craftin' fool.

Love ya'
Meri

Happy Birthday a day late!! I was not as smart as everyone else who figured out the exact day. Your vintage candle holders bring back such memories - remember these from my childhood. Hope you had a great birthday.

Lesa said...

Oh, yes, please. If you are inclined to send the candle holders this way, I'd be so pleased and would love to use them on my little grand-nieces birthday cupcakes. I, too, remember them from my childhood. Happy Birthday to you!

Elizabeth,
You are such a sneek! lol. I will get my boxes done when I get home....
Happy Belated Birthday again sweetie! I love when a birthday lasts for days...:):) And you know what? We deserve it! And please no anxiety about making items, take a break if the old "A" shows up....I find it helps....Hugs, Sandy

Happy Birthday. I think I told you before but wasn't sure of the date. Lots of cuteness going on in your work room.
We need to get together and celebrate our bd's being so close.
Yes, a planned get together in the SPring would be great. I think having it in Columbus would be the best. Maybe we can plan it together.
Have a great birthday week.

Wishing you the HAPPIEST of birthdays! Darling Halloween ornaments and I can't wait to see your candybox shadowbox. I had a great time making mine. I'm addicted and have made several Halloween ones now too. Birthday hugs!

Happy Birthday and I missed the day, but the wishes are still coming! Your comment made me laugh on the stance of the witch..wonderful words...thanks!

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

I didn't know the actual day was yesterday. I hardly know what today is! But happy, happy B day to you- even after the actual day!! Let's keep celebrating!

Last year, I made a fall button ball garland and I've been making more fall colred balls to add to it. It will probably be the only fall decoration I put up since I'm going to be so busy PACKING! ♥

Happy Happy Birthday! Since you are celebrating each day of September you deserve 30 days of Happy! I started my candy box ornaments today and could use some additional embellishments! December is MY birthday! On the flip side, I had to eat all four pieces of candy when they were just sitting there on my table! This could be another 10 lbs if I make six boxes!

Happy Birthday. I hope you had a wonderful day. Eat a piece of cake for me. Thanks for sharing. You are an inspiration.
