My last year before I cross over into the big 80!  But never fear, I'll enjoy every one of those birthdays and spread out the fun just like I have in the past!
The inside of  my 1950 Birthday Card above
 Violets are my Birthday Flower, so I have been aware of them more lately!
I have been looking again at some of my past Birthday Wishes.  Many years ago sister Judy gave me a beautiful bouquet of long steam forever roses with little love messages. The bouquet is still on display in our bedroom

Mother gave me a surprise 16th Birthday Slumber Party and embroidered this dish for all my friends to sign. I still have it displayed in our kitchen.

Here we are with me at the center end. We kept in touch for many years, but now some have past on and I just get a Christmas card from one or two of them.

This little darling birthday card was sent to me 68 yrs ago!


The inside of this card is shown  above. The back note on card is below.

I remember this little pink cross for my Bible, but sadly I have misplaced it over the years.

My last Birthday Card from Mother. Feb. 6, 2000


Sister Judy and I a few days ago at The Brass Armadillo Antique Mall in Grain Valley

So Many Fun Booths!

Decorated for Valentines Day!

Cute Garlands!

Liked the 3 Borders around this colorful quilt!

Great Grandson Eli helping me  show off my Birthday Card which came  today from Cousin Florence & Roger.  Wishing you all some fun days too! You might check out my 2nd blog: also.


  1. Oh, my! You share a birthday with my husband (and the late President Reagan). Had I known, I would have tucked some violets & birthday wishes into the book cover instead of the Valentine postcard I sent you. Pretty sure it won't arrive in time for your birthday, so here are my wishes for a WONDERFUL one ♥

  2. Happy birthday! I love that you have cards from when you were six! that is sooo awesome! I hope you have a lovely day!
