Birthday's Rock ~

Well, another year gone, another year older and hopefully, another year wiser. I really don't mind having birthdays, like some people do. I decided a long time ago that I would grow old gracefully and never give in to the temtations of botox, or liposuction. The way I look at it, I would much rather have $5,000 worth of awesome beads than 6 years worth of fat sucked out of my butt. Besides, I'm always sitting on it, so nobody can see it anyway.

I had to post this picture today. It's one of my favs. I love the little piggies. Especially the one carrying all the balloons. There is a quote about birthday's that I always write in cards to people that are somewhat discontented about another birthday. I'll never forget and I always think about it when I sometimes feel a pity party coming on: "Never regret growning old, it's a privilege denied many". When I think about that way, I know I'm lucky. I still have my health & my happiness. I have a wonderful family, an awesome Husband, a terrific Son and 2 of the best dogs in the whole entire world.

And so, now I can share what Wayne, Ozzy & Lita gave me for my Birthday, besides lots of hugs and kisses and some really sweet cards:
I've been wanting a small camera that I can carry around with me all the time. I hate having to bring my Kodak to places like restaurants, or weddings, etc. You know, places where something could get spilt on it, or knocked off the table. Plus, I can't even count the times that I have been somewhere and thought, "gee, I wish I had my camera". Anyway, this is a great little camera and takes awesome pictures, as indicated below and I bet you can tell how many Margaritas I had:

Oh and today is Ozzy's birthday! He is 4 years old. We will be having Ice Cream tonight ~ his favorite ~ Bluebell Homemade Vanilla. I just buy the little cups and he thinks he's in heaven. Of course, we all enjoy the special treat. I'll take pictures later and share them tomorrow.

Anway, I also wanted to share this awesome little bag that I bought from SuperbKitsch. I had bought a turtle one a while back to use for my external flash for my camera. My new little camera fits perfect in there, so I bought this one today for it:

Isn't it sweet. I can't wait to get it. Plus, I thought I would share what I made today. It's for sale in the shop, if you want to see more pictures:

Isn't it awesome! I named it, and most appropriately I must say, "Flora ~ Fauna"

And now I must go get dinner started, so we can eat early and enjoy Ozzy's Birthday treat. I hope you all have a wonderful evening & a most enjoyable Friday. xxoo ~ Kathy


  1. OMG, how beautiful is that necklace! Stunning!
    And I laughed out loud when you said that you just sit on your butt, nobody sees it anyway!! I hear ya'!
    Hope you had a great birthday and Happy Birthday to your furry 4 year old!

  2. I love this: "The way I look at it, I would much rather have $5,000 worth of awesome beads than 6 years worth of fat sucked out of my butt."

    You know, when you're rich and famous and even more stars are wearing your jewelry, people are going to start tacking that quote of yours on their walls for inspiration.
