It was my day this week...

I have this Friend.
Her name is Susan and she gives me things.

It was my day this week (I've had 71 so far) and I was working over in the Garden Palace early before it got so hot. 
I had a greeting on Facebook on my day and Susan said she wanted to come by if I was home.
Of course I said, "I'm home...wear mud boots to walk to the Garden Palace cause I'm headed over there."

A little while later, I looked out the window and there she was trudging through the low water spot and weedy wildflowers with her arms full. 
I hollered hey and just then felt a little flip flop.
But when she got to the back door with a big smile on her face and two gift bags, I nearly burst into tears because I suddenly realized I was having my very first 
Garden Palace Birthday Party with my BFF.

One bag had the sweet "Its Your Day" birthday canvas that she made special. 
For Me. 

The other bag was full of Garden Palace treasures like little china plates, glasses and this cute little topless teapot.
She knew I would love them and know just what to do with a topless teapot. 

Now you may remember this corner shelf unit was on my project by project list.

But you didn't know that this too was a treasure from Susan.

I only needed to hang it in the corner and when Dear Son was hear recently, we got it hung. 

In the corner behind the back door. 


Thank you Susan for always making me smile.

  2. Happy Birthday!! It looks like you had a good day. Friends sure know how to make you feel special, don't they? I love the little teapot with no top being put to good use holding art tools.
