Celebrating Half a Century...

Hello my blog friends!!! Just thought I would share a few pictures with you of my husbands surprise 50th birthday party! I really got him good this year and caught him off guard. He was so surprised and touched by the party, I think I saw him tear up just a little and I know he enjoyed the evening...

...the cake was my idea, it was the second best thing from renting an actual hearse and driving him around town that night. Haha...


There was plenty of these types of gifts...
...you know, the fun kinda gifts that constantly remind you of being "over the hill".


...Jazz Hands!!!

That darn "50" followed us around all night, and I really felt like it was sneakin' up to get me!! LOL


We set off every fire alarm in the building that night lighting the cake!


Remember this old thing...
...well, one week later and many trips back and forth to the hardware store to get the right size screws for the ancient brackets that held the top on to the base...
We came up with this...

..and yes the top is pink and I LOVE IT!!! It matches my art room walls and it is so happy and cheerful!



I even found time to line the drawers with some nice French inspired paper...

It was a project, but it was worth it!!!

....and here are a few new pair of earrings going to my Etsy shop, inspired by that sweet little
 "jour de l'amour" coming up next week...



Well mes amis, have a wonderful weekend!!! Be sure to check back with me in a few days because I will be posting some pictures of  Birmingham Fashion Week that I am attending tomorrow with Mary Kay. Her beautiful jewelry is being featured on the runway and we have been invited to the show. This should be exciting, as I have never seen a live runway show and especially one featuring my friend's jewelry.
Take care and see you back here real soon!!!
