Today's MY Day!

October is a big month in my family....Today is MY birthday, and I"m celebrating Tyler's first birthday with about 30 other people....and half of those are under 3 !! EEEkkkk   So glad their parents will be attending the party too!

Anyway, because it's my day, I'm just going to share some of my favorite things with you. 

I love painted furniture.  I love to paint it myself, and I appreciate the art of this butterfly!
 I'm a big fan of the Impressionists...Monet' "Waterlilies" ......breathtaking!


I love velveteen....especially in tomato red

Or teal blue.

 I love the idea of living in a barn....a beautiful, converted one, of course!

Elle Decor

I love to make things, and I love having everything I need for a project when I get a wild hair to do something at 10pm.


Seems like I'm always working on these at that time.....but they're my fav thing to make in the fall.

I love dishes....all kinds....all colors....all styles.

Bold, big graphic prints always make me smile!  Probably a throwback from my mural-painting days.

Design that doesn't take itself so seriously!

  10. Happy Birthday Sally. In reading your "loves" I find we are very much alike...I have an 18mo old grandson and I also love dishes, graphic prints, velvet, crafts, designing nurseries...the living in a barn, not so much.

    You must sell those pumpkins on Etsy. You are very talented in many ways.
    Have a great day

  11. Happy, Happy Birthday. I love all the things you love and you should be surrounded with them today! Hugs from me. Mona

  12. Happy Happy Birthday to both of you! Hope the party was a smashing success! xoxo

  13. Thank you for your sweet comment Sally!! I missed you too, good to be back home and in blogland, Kathysue

  14. Happy, happy belated
    b-day to YOU and to
    sweet Tyler!! I am
    smitten with the images
    of the barn room and
    the workspace! And
    your roomies, of course : )
    And don't even get
    me started on Tyler's
    blue eyes....SO cute!
    May it be a year to
    remember, sweet Sally!
    xx Suzanne
