Happy Birthday to Me!

Well, yesterday I turned the big 39, and as you can see, I am celebrating with a new blog design!  Don't ask me why it has taken me so long to do this-that old Blogger template was just not cutting it for sure!  Erika at The Fairy Blogmother worked with me to come up with the design, and I love it!

For my birthday, I got some really nice goodies, which I haven't had a chance to display yet.  But above is a sneak peek of them all piled in a box!  I also had a chance to work on a piece of artwork.  Every year on my birthday, I do a piece of art- it's become an annual tradition.  I wasn't able to quite finish it though, so I'll post photos once I'm done.

Since I was so busy being pampered and catered to (ha ha- reality check- I've got three kids, so birthdays aren't what they used to be!), but anyway, I didn't have a chance to post my Little Vintage Style photos yesterday. (I'm also linking up with Small Style)  So here ya go!

 Avery had a chance to wear her new (vintage) bubble romper, and it is so adorable!

After we played outside, she decided she wanted to make some tea for us!


And just so you see how our whole life isn't beautiful vintage backdrops, here's the reality of what she looked like most of the day- Buzz Lightyear and Big Brother's Crocs!

I'll share photos soon of my birthday goodies and birthday painting!

Avery is gorgeous! I love the romper and the navy bow and shoes are the perfect compliment.

Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a fabulous day, although I agree, birthdays are definitely a lot different when you have kids to take care of.

Love the blog layout!

You are seriously killing me with the cuteness - the romper, the pigtails, the shoes - oh those perfect shoes!
Even the sneak peek at the box of goodies has me desperately wanting to see more.

And a big happy birthday to you! Your new look is just lovely.

Happy Birthday, Corey. Your new blog design is perfect. And thank you for more photos of Avery. She lifts my spirits. She's heart-breakingly beautiful in a tender way.
