All My Favorite Things

 I took last Monday off from work and treated myself to a long weekend.  I was able to meet up with my sweet friend, Carol, for a long overdue visit.  She gifted me with a belated birthday bag filled with ALL my favorite things!  Do you love that card?  Yes, we were drinking a beer at a local brew pub while I opened the treasures.  It is, after all, Portland.
 A new birdie for my collection.  You can never have too many birdies, nor can you count them because I have tried.  They fly around and I lose track....  I adore my birdies.
 Buttons and sparkly bling.  She knows me well!
She RESCUED everything except the birdie.  A friend of hers is cleaning out her mother's home and just throwing everything away.  JUST SHOOT ME NOW!!  I haven't picked a dump so far but stories like that make me want to!  Thank you so much, Carol, for thinking of me and for saving the treasure.  I love ya, girl!

What amazing treasures...considering that were being thrown away! I don't know why people don't donate things. I could never throw away anything good! lol LOVE the jewelry! What a sweet gift! Hugs!

I love that you took a day off to play.

Maybe one day this friend Carol will come up to Portland and have a play day with you.
