Lorena's thumbtacks

My birthday was recently and a sweet friend gifted me with these adorable handmade roses thumbtacks and magnet for my fridge. I absolutely love receiving things like this in the mail. It just makes my heart sing, lifts me up and gives me joy to know someone is thinking of me. Are they not gorgeous?!

Then of course I had to show you where my little ribbon tree is in my house. That's not to say it'll stay there forever, but for now, this is where I'll display it. And yep, I put it inside a little box that has a faux fern in it. I just like doing things differently and that give me eye candy for my soul. :-)


  1. Hi Connie! It seems to be forever since I've been by. What beautiful gifts to receive in the mail. You certainly are loved by many of us. Have a wonderful week Sweetie!

  7. Hi Connie, hope you had a fantastic Happy Birthday!!! Very beautiful gifts!

  8. Happy Belated Birthday Connie! Hope you had a wonderful day!

  9. Hi Connie, love the gifts you received and your blog is such a joy to read. I had to chuckle about the previous post, as I have a thing for magnets and I have them put away, minus a few on the fridge and I just can't seem to part with them. It must be the OCD that makes me hang onto things, but lookout when I start to declutter. I will have to have the strongest will ever to depart from some of it. I never get rid of gifts from people, so that will never hit the tables. You are deserving of these gifts and I do hope you had a Happy Birthday. I guess I should have checked Mary's blog, because she has most of our birthday's listed. Love and hugs, Pat

  10. What a neat gift! What a sweet friend! I just scrolled down and saw your new slip cover. SO NICE! The pillows look great on there. And happy belated bday!

  11. Oh no....I missed yor birthday! I hope you enjoyed your day. Happy Belated!

    It is taking me awhile to get around and visit everyone on my reader...especially with a dial-up connection....we are all doing okay over here just adjusting to new schedules....but I had some fun catching up on you over a few days reading...that great-grandbaby...oh my! What a doll! Congrats to your family! I wish we had babies in our family but everyone is growing up.

    I love the napkin ring have some unique ones for sure. I would display that too...great conversation starter!

    Sending you hugs my sweet friend....Angie
