Happy Early Birthday to Me!

My sweet Mom bought me something for my birthday!  It's BIG!  It's Brown!  It's a buffet!

Isn't it BEAUTIFUL!  It's just what I wanted!  I have been looking on online yard sale sites and Craigslist for something to put on this wall in the dining room/entry way.  She found the perfect piece on her side of the state and brought it over to me last week.

I can't wait to add some accessories to it!

Birthday Buffet
 I usually take the worse pictures but Dear Daughter took this at oldest son's graduation last week and I just love it!

It's a two for one photo because I can see my gray growing out, 3 months now and I can see that my hair color will end up being pretty close to my Mom's.

Mom & I
I've been wearing my QVC Denim & Co. hack skirts and the more I wear them, the more I love them!  They are so comfy!  I really want a printed one now but the problem I have is I usually don't wear solid color T-shirts.  I don't like the way they show bra seams and nipples.  Any suggestions for wearing solid color t-shirts?  Wearing a tank under will not work since it's so hot here in Florida.  Maybe there's a tip my Mom didn't tell me growing up..............

Dear Daughter is turning 15 this week!  Where has the time gone?  She's such a sweet girl.  Maybe she'll let me take a photo of her.

Until next time.............



  1. Thicker (beffier cotton) or textured fabrics in a solid shouldn't show what is underneath. Avoid the very drapey thin fabrics.

    1. Great idea, thank you! I'm going to dig through my stash to see what I have.
