This tired woman, had a great birthday! I got to rest, my family all meet together for dinner and we all just loved each other. That is the best kind of birthday anyone can wish for. I got a few fun things, I want to show you. You know all those unless little things, we just can't live without! My kind of gifts. I want to thank you for all your birthday wishes. I was so surprised. You made me feel very happy! I feel like I have all these wonderful new friends, that no one else knows about. A real cool secret. Thank you so much!

Before I stop this short little post, want to tell you about this book I just got. You know that I collect figurines, especially ladies, I love the ladies! Well, I got this book called "The Florence, An Era of Elegance". I own several of this little ladies. This book prices and dates them. I love to know what year something was made. It makes me think of all the history behind each piece. Much to my surprise, many of my pieces are worth over $150 and more. If you have any pieces you would like me to price, send me a picture and I will look for it. Most of Florence's pieces were named. You would have thought? Life is good!

Blessings to you my friends, Martha

Don't forget, next Wednesday, Noah will pick a name for the Give away. All you have to do is leave a comment!

Hi, Martha,
I am glad you got to rest up and spend time with your family. That is the best kind of birthday there is. Your lady figurines are so pretty. I don't think I had ever heard this name. It sounds like you have a great investment in your collection. If you are like me, you collect because you really love something and not because of the price it is worth. Sending happy wishes your way. Vicki

Happy sweet birthday Martha ... mine is Sunday, great sign for our birth.

How lovely to gather with your family for a day of rest & celebration. May you have many more moments ...

Yes, the Florence collections are worth a pricey penney. We could hardly keep them in our shop, they are so collectible. You are fortunate to have these pieces. They are so elegant. What lovely gifts you received.

Have a lovely weekend. TTFN ~Marydon
