Some Lovely Gifts

I just wanted to show you some of my favorite gifts I received for my birthday last month.
My friend Heidi gave me the owl you see below.
Isn't he a cutie?
And look how perfectly he fits in sitting there:
My sister Lori gave me this Betty Crocker Pie And Pastry Cookbook:
It was one of the few that I did not yet have for my collection, and it's a good one!
 The picture of my vintage paper flowers that I shared the other day came from this cookbook.  Love it.

And Lori also gave me this beautiful vintage embroidered shoe bag:
We were together at a thrift store when she found it, and I was so envious that she saw it first!
She knew I loved it - and then she surprised me with it on my birthday!
 Thanks, Sis!
I bought the little lady below for myself for my birthday - with birthday money from my husband.
He said "You can buy something you really want."
So I did.
She looks right at home flanked by two of her sisters on the mantel, don't you think?
