birthday was fun !

Well, I said I would be busy didn't I ?
(with a High Tea at our home)
I celebrated with some dear family and friends
my 70th birthday.
Years come and go :
you just have to enjoy them !

Daughter brought me this wonderful big bunch of flowers !

Man made (and bought) some yummy things
for our High Tea

and I must confess :
I totally forgot to take a picture
when all the plates were still full
(some stuff didn't last very long  ;-)  !)

It was a wonderful happy celebration
on a bright and SUNNY day !

You know that you get sweet postcards
on a day like this,
but there was also a package
(right on time)

My dear Blogging-friend Birgit sent it !
(she heard about my birthday when we met in Arnhem)

In it was a wonderful stitched card in Jude-style :
(we both are very fond
of Jude's stitching)

Some delightful yarns, something sweet
and some of the vintage pieces she dyed for me
in her indigo vat !
An unexpected but very sweet present !


The day before my birthday
we had our monthly mandala group evening

(the Hawaiian Goddess of Fire)
