End of the Line For This Month.

SO we say goodbye to another month in this year of firsts - 2009, you haven't been here long, but already you've changed us and rearranged us.
Tonight the Mister and I attended a surprise birthday party for my brother who turned (secret age here). It was fun to sit around the kitchen table after dinner and birthday cake and each take turns telling "I remember" stories.
Only one of my brothers wasn't there and we missed him. My littlest sister, as usual, brought the best gifts - handmade - a blanket for my birthday brother and a homemade apple pie for the other brother who was hosting the party.
She carries gifts wherever she goes. I know: You all want to send her your address! But me first!
What will March bring? Warmer weather - just a little, I hope. And no more surprise snow showers even if they do give my disintegration project real teeth. The picture above is taken from The Blue Lantern, where Jane showed fashion illustrations and talked about her recent yearning for a new spring outfit. She has such fantastic art on her blog. I don't think I've ever seen anything there I haven't liked.
I am hard at work this weekend cleaning up my art room. This time it's for real. We would like to turn this into a real bedroom again so we can entertain. The Mister plans to give me a nice cozy room in the garage. (Nicer than it sounds.) Good night - femminismo

Sounds like a wonderful night full of family, food and fun. What could be better. Happy Birthday, brother. *smile* Oh, and tell little sis that my birthday is July 24th...just in case she wants to send goodies. lol

I hope you'll share your art room after you move it...and the "new" guest room, too.

Have a great Sunday!

Peace & Love,

after seeing pictures of the new bathroom, I have NO doubt the garage studio will be amazing!

Happy birthday to your brother!

What a great great way to spend an evening with your brother's birthday around and about. How I envy that! So glad it was a good one.
I agree. I check out The Blue Lantern even though I don't leave comments. She has a real knack and a fine eye for beauty and curiosity.
Take care!
