Happy Belated Birthday! I love the silver cup...I love just anything that is silver or monogrammed...and especially if it is both. :o)


Hi Allison,
Happy Belated Birthday!
It sounds like you had a fun time, and got some great presents.
I love your sparkly trees!

Happy Belated Birthday Allison. I hope it was absolutely wonderful.




Your blog is so beautiful! Thanks for all the inspiring pictures. I love your style & wish I was more organized like you. My husband would be so happy but I'm a little too random I guess.

Happy Birthday! It sounds like you had a very nice one! I love all your new touches, the banner is very cute! I am thinking I might be able to make a similar one! :0) I love those Bailey cups too. My girlfriend starting picking them up at Goodwill and has over a dozen and she used them one time when she had a tea, they were soooo cute! Come over and visit my blog, I showed some pictures of our front porch all decorated for Christmas!

Have a wonderful week, Sharon


A very, very Happy Birthday to you Allison! Sounds like you had a wonderful day and I love your presents. What do you think of the book? I was going back and forth about buying it. Hope this year is filled with much love, health, and happiness.


Happy (belated) Birthday. I love that book too. It's wonderful. Love the banner you picked up. I may have to use that as inspiration. Or just flat out copy it!

Very lovely… Beautiful Christmas ornaments...

Christmas is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace..

Enjoy the Season
