Stay Warm! and Thank You.

Hi everyone.  Hope everyone is staying warm, with these ridiculous cold temperatures.  Some of those temperatures that my American friends are dealing with, would even get to the most hardiest of Canadians!

I wanted to pop in today, just to say thank you all for my lovely birthday wishes :-)  Made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside reading all your wonderful comments.

I had a lovely, yet quiet day on Sunday for my Birthday.  Andy had given me my present before he went back to Winnipeg.  I collect Swarovski Crystal and haven't had a new piece in quite a while.

So, I thought I would share with you what he got me.  Firstly though he got me this lovely cuddly owl, as one of my silly presents at Christmas :-)  He is such a big softy and it is connected, well sort of !

Everybody say "Awwwwwwe!"

And here is the lovely piece he got me for my birthday.

Isn't it just sweet.

The girls bought me a lovely 12 by 12 paper stack, out of their allowance - my girls know me :-)

A good friend took me out, yesterday, for a celebratory lunch.  We had a Chinese buffet and it was delicious!

I will be back tomorrow to share something crafty with you.  Just keeping up with my goal to post something at least every other day.  You don't have to read this drivel LOL!

Anyways, thanks for stopping by today.

See ya tomorrow.

Happy crafting.


  1. LOL...drivel...that's hilarious! Oh, right, I forgot..."Awwwwwwwwe"....now THAT is a gorgeous gift. Love how it represents the two of you love birds/owls. :) Glad you had a terrific birthday and lunch and gifts. You are truly blessed with love and friendship.
    Have a fantastic day Karon!

  2. I LOVE your adorable cuddly owl and that Swarovski Crystal owl is gorgeous!!!! Do you collect the yearly ornaments as well??? I have been getting them as a Christmas gift for my MIL since they started releasing one each year....they are gorgeous too!
    Glad to hear you had a GREAT birthday!! Stay warm!!!!

  3. Fabulous gifts...for a fabulous lady! Glad you had a great day...enjoy the rest of your week!

  4. It's not drivel to me! Sounds like you're trying to make a week long celebration of your birthday- my kind of celebration! Andy and the girls really do love you- they picked out perfect gifts. Can't wait to see what you craft out of all these warm feelings!

  5. Cute stuffed owl. The Crystal is truly gorgeous. Glad you had a wonderful birthday. I used to collect glass and crystal (of course nothing this beautiful) but on our move here to Georgia, out of 8 rubber made tubs I managed to salvage about 3, the others were as if someone had crushed the glass with a sledge hammer. I kind of lost my taste for collecting. Decided I would wait til we moved back North to start again.

  6. I'm so glad you had a wonderful birthday!! Awwwww, the stuffed owl is so adorable!! The crystal is absolutely gorgeous!! Have a wonderful Tuesday my friend!!

  7. Sounds like you had a wonderful birthday. Love the stuffed owl and the "lovebird" owls. They are beautiful.

  8. I glad you had such a lovely birthday. Those owls are beautiful. When Mum left Scotland in 1945, as a WWII war bride, her brother carved two owls from a branch for her. He even carved their names - Two-Wit and Two-Woo. So she was able to bring a little piece of Scotland to Canada with her.

  9. Happy Birthday! Awesome owls, I have to say. Sounds like you had fun!
