Gracious! To say that I was overwhelmed by the response to yesterday's post would be an understatement! Whew! I've *never* had that happen before . . . what fun!!
And what a fun day it was, too! The day started with lots of happy calls and birthday songs and wishes from my sweet husband, both James and Jocelyn and my sister. Then, as we were about to leave for the day, a car pulled up and this pretty little thing was delivered . . .
Aren't they gorgeous?! Look at all those pretty oranges and deep pinks! What a wonderful husband I have!!
My daddy and I went to lunch at the renown Severn Inn, at the foot of the old Severn River bridge.
The food was marvelous. I started with a crock French onion soup and then had a Maryland crab cake over fried green tomatoes and grilled corn salad.
I'm not sure how well it photographed, but I can assure you it was YUMMY!! Good thing I'd gone light on breakfast! (And yes, in case you're wondering, there is a bite missing out of the back!)
Our view as we ate was pretty spectacular, too. That's the Naval Academy you see across the river on the other shore. It was such a lovely, clear day!
We'd made a stop at Teavana. Oh.my.goodness. I'd never been in one before (the nearest, I think, is in Chattanooga).
I got two lovely teas (the two they were featuring that day) and a new tea strainer! Aren't my tins pretty?? I picked these two because they reminded me of Dresden Plates and fancy applique!! :)
Aren't these pretty? This is a mix of Youngblood and Orange Blossom tea. They both look like potpourri . . .
And smell heavenly! They taste even BETTER! This is an Oolong/Chai mix. WOW!
And then there was a little trip to the local quilt shop, Cottonseed Glory, which just *happens* to be on the route to the rehab center where my mom is getting that knee back in shape. Yikes. Since it's right on the way, I see additional stops. Rut roh . . .
Another blown stash report, huh?! But what can I say?? Buy 10 fat quarters, get 1 free!!! LOL! I also got a little yardage to bind June's quilt -- along with some butterflies for one or two of the pendants. Oh my, I had such fun! Do you see that little owl at the top right? You might be thinking he looks a little Wicked, non?! You might be right! I found a little Fairy Frost in pink, and another pretty batik with a *sparkly* thread running through it (like my gorgeous silver batik). Actually, you probably wouldn't be surprised to learn that most of what I got had sparklies running through it! LOL!!
So, all-in-all, it was a lovely happy JUBILEE birthday!! And thank y'all for sharing it with me! And if you haven't made it over there, my giveaway is open until Saturday the 20th, so please do check it out -- the more the merrier!!
I'll leave you with the photo of the day that just melted this Neesey's heart . . .
Birthdays and grandbabies? Oh yeah, I think that qualifies for a link up with Favorite Things!!
