Birthday post and WOYWW

Hi Everybody!

How should I say this?? Another year has come round and another year has been added to the many I already have ( or should I say feel on my body). As I share so much with you I thought I would share this too - no point in being secretive about having a birthday at my age! I had a lovely day - I got up early and enjoyed the lovely morning on my terrace ( yes I can now sit outside in the morning) then I went to the market and bought a few baskets of strawberries which I took to work with a few other goodies and shared with my friends ....
I got some lovely gift and a big "international bouquet" that was sent to me from my DBF from England! I  wanted to make a video to mark the occassion but I don't really know how and the only camera I have is the one on my laptop that I use for skype. Does anybody know if you can use that to make a video for your blog?
I also went out with my friends last night and had a lovely Indian meal and drank too much Cobra! So today I wasn't as bright and early as usual! 
I will be honest with you I haven't been doing much crafting this week - it was time to do some gardening - it is all done and dusted but unfortunately my desk is empty!

But I still have a few things to share with you....first my kitchen table this morning - full of lovely flowers I got for my birthday....

The one in the back with the pinky stuff wrapped around it is from my DBF....

Here is a bit of my efforts in my "garden".....

Here are a few pots with varios flowers and also a few herbs I use quite often (basil, parsley, chives and  melissa....it all still looks a bit sad but in a few weeks It will be very nice and colorful!

Oh well I do have something crafty to share - I have started putting my ribbon on dolly pegs but the problem  is that instead of putting my old ribbon on them -  the one that is mashed up in boxes and desperately needs sorting  I keep on buying new ribbon and never get round to those boxes?? Why do you think that happens??? Ha, ha....
Well that is me for today! Have a lovely snoop around - I will make an effort to visit as much of you as possible but I must admit sometimes life takes over and I just can't do all the visits I would like to!
Lots of hugs,


  1. Happy birthday to you,

  4. Happy Birthday, my friend!! Your flowers are lovely, and I hope you find time to craft soon, for now enjoy your celebrations!

  5. Happy Biorthday Dolores,

    yes you can (use your same image capture for skype to make a video) all you need is some form of media software - ~Pc's and Macs susally have the basic software installed - skype me sometime and I'll talk you through - weekend will be best as I am working evenings and daytime so a bit busy till then,

    which reminds me Microsoft just bought skype so how long do you reckon till we mac users have to pay????


  6. Happy birthday to you, that is really sweet of the flowers, love your ribbon storage idea. Thank you for sharing. Happy WOYWW 101! Not far until WOYWW 104 and the PIF! Are you ready? All the best, #2
