and we're back...

I'm feeling much more like myself these last few days. It was really horrible feeling like someone else...my nerves were jumping right under my skin and I was biting everyone's head off.

But, the point is...better now.

I had some help today which meant I could do a little shopping for my sister's and niece's birthdays (also to be celebrated this weekend)...

While out, I bought this for myself...

Isn't it sweet? There's one for cream, sugar, honey, and...
SPRINKLES! Well, you know that sealed the deal for me. Happy birthday to me, indeed!
I bought Maggie, who will be 5 next Saturday, this magical jewelry box...you know the kind where the ballerina twirls to the music when you open it. Every little girl should have one. Well, I thought so. And I also thought that the ballerina should look as much like the little girl as possible....


So here's the box, all blinged out, with a more wonderful ballerina to twirl about.


The glue's still wet, but you get the idea. I think I want one too. And I do think Miss Pink, who so admired Maggie's, should get one too. You should've seen her looking at the ballerina twirl around while smiling at her own reflection. Too sweet.
So have a good weekend, everyone. And please help me celebrate my day by eating a cupcake tomorrow. And as you do, hold it up and say cheerfully "Oh, that Amy!"
See? I'm back. Whew...
p.s. The jewelry box is from Pottery Barn Kids...and the sugar, creamer, etc is from regular old Pottery Barn.

Happy Birthday with tons of sweet sprinkles raining down on you!! I'm SO glad you are out of the "swamp of sadness". That's a nasty, cruel place to be. Enjoy the sunshine and I love, love, love your dear little music box you "dolled up."

I agree- every little (and big) girl should have a musical ballerina jewelry box- and your "bling" makes it even more special!

Laura said...

I am coming over to steal that sprinkles jar right now...don't be alarmed if you find me in your kitchen....

Linda said...

Happy birthday, Amy!!! The jewelry box is adorable...

Happy Birthday Brilliant Girl!

Kristi said...

Happy (belated) Birthday, Amy! I wasn't able to enjoy a cupcake in your honor, as I gave up sweets for Lent, but I thought about you just the same!

Oh, and I have a sweet jewelry box just like the one that you bought for your niece...it's at my Mom's house and I thought about it just the other day. Must.get.it.from.her!

Happy Birthday sweet Amy!!!
My two youngest went through a phase whenthey were very little when everything I put on their plate was yucky! I somehow discovered that they would eat anything if I let them put sprinkles on top! Mashed potatoes, green beans, hamburgers, cooked carrots, corn, posk chops, spaghetti, etc. Right next to the salt and pepper was the bottle of sprinkles. Eventually, they grew out of it but I might just have to reintroduce it because there are new flavors that aren't being well recieved at supper time these days!

Thanks for the reminder!
