Hi Everyone!
A week or more ago I posted that I got some paints and brushes for my birthday. I neglected to say that it was an EARLY birthday gift. I got lots of comments and emails and birthday cards in regular mail. Thank you, thank you, thank you all. 
However, my real birthday is April 27. :)  I do love all the attention though. Yesterday I had coffee with a very dear friend of mine, this is what she brought me for my birthday. I am a candle woman. I have them all over my  house and I use them everyday.
So how nice is this gift?  mmmm and they smell so good.
I can't remember when Gloria, from Loving Frida, shining Star, and I first met. I think it was from the blog one world one heart in 2010. When ever it was I have always loved Gloria's blog and her art. She is a lovely person with a heart of gold.
I am so honored to receive this book with some of Gloria's art
along with an abstract bangle she made.
Another wonderfully thoughtful gift.
My mom gave me two of her sculpey pieces. Thanks mom I love you

Wow turning 62 has been pretty nice so far and again I thank all of you for the birthday wishes and the gifts.
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
