Putting birthday away...

Here are some scattered images..... I'm trying to put my birthday celebration away....
I run with a wild crowd that does strange things and one of those strange things is how we gift one another. THIS year we drew colors and elements and can spend $5 on a gift. The group calls themselves Dirt Divas and I've talked about them before on here...... one of them gives purple metal...see above ...yes, I know it's sideways...but it looks good on here that way.
Below is a gift from BFF Virginia.... she gave me a glass cloche with a bird on top...can you make it out? Click on the photo and see it closer. I ADORE it!!! And behind it I'm showing you the wrapping paper she gave me with it (rolled up .... of course) .... Papaya is putting out paper designed by..... yes, you have a good eye - Pam Garrison! aaaaagggghhhh!
Here are more of "those gifts"..... yellow paper (she sprayed a lampshade yellow and wrote words describing me perfectly)... And the red wood gift which is SO me!!! The blue cloth gift is to clean my glasses and my cell phone with (practical, sweet diva did that) and black glass gift is there, too....she usually cheats. You also see a glimpse of the art piece that Natalea sent that I blogged about a few days ago... Carole, a QB5 from New Zealand...got in on the action because she mailed me goodies! It's good when you have friends that know what you like and they SEND it to you!!!! She bought a massive bird book and for the next 30 years she will send me pages from it....
DH sent me flowers.... also a couple of Sid Dickens plaques..which I didn't photograph yet... Here are some of the things my kids gave me! And.....Anna...... sweet, sweet Anna.... Doncha love it! If you sent me something and it isn't shown here.... just tune in again soon!

WOW! Your Dirt Diva's are cool indeed! And you, my dear, have had quite the fabulous haul over the past period of Birthday-Gras! I love it all -- you can tell how very much you are loved!

You must be exhausted (in the best way) after so much birthday fun! I am coveting that glass cloche!
