Cookies,Cupcakes, Socks, and Totes!

Custom made cookies from Susan Halme and her Solvang Bakery. She put Syd's trademark message on our cookies...I ate mine when I got home and it was delicious!

Syd and I celebrated our birthdays this month at the Art Clinic with out art girl friends. Syd had lunch waiting for us...curried chicken sandwiches, mixed green salad, her special punch and I brought a dozen cupcakes from new place in town called "Crushcakes"...so yummy!

We asked for "Socks" for our birthday gift this year. Everyone brought more than one pair for each of us...these are some of Syd's socks.
And look at all of these beauties! I am putting on a new pair every day..Thanks everyone!

Colleen, Susan H. and Maren looking at one of our funny birthday cards.
We even had an art project for everyone to do. We made oilcloth totes...made with staples and duct tape...no sewing! We had seen it on Martha Stewart and it looked like a quick and easy thing to do....eveyone managed to make at least one and they all came out so bright and cheerful.
Penny is modeling a couple of the totes and she even made a little lunch bag to take to work.
Susan B. with two more totes.
Maren gave me this wonderful felted pillow from Kata Golda...I love the soft colors of her plant dyed felt.
The happy birthday girls!
Sunday-no rain yet, so we took a hike on the historic Fremont Trail, just minutes from our mountain top home. Snow topped mountains in the distance and miles of wilderness....
