My BFF Really Knows Me...

On Saturday I will be turning 70 years old!! It seems so odd to say that because I don't feel that old but those are the facts. I was born in 1943 and here it is 2013. I can't argue with the numbers.

You probably know that Gail and I have been friends since we were about nine years old. She is more like family to me rather than a friend, and she knows me so well. Look what she sent to me for my birthday...


This beautiful wall hanging all done in purples!


This is a close-up of the image she printed on the fabric.
Those are my maternal grandparents and that little
girl on the bike is me!

Gail always sends me handmade, personal gifts which I love.

Thank you, Gail! You're the BEST!
