I promised photos of birthday gifts on Friday and did not deliver - sorry : (. That was because I "treated" myself to an hour of antiquing and didn't give myself time in the day to take pictures of all the lovely items inside those packages.
Side note: I learned that "treating" trick from my friend Bonny. She says "who can argue with that?" Is someone going to say you shouldn't treat yourself to something? After all your hard work? Try it, it works.
Anyhew, back to photos. Here are a few I did take of these amazing pin cushions my mom made! They remind me of Maria Antoinette, a movie I watched about three times last weekend (Forest was on a fishing trip with the guys).
These designs are from a lovely woman Betz White who was recently featured on Martha Stewart. Aren't they delicious? My mom is also uber talented, if you can't tell : )
