What a sweet post Karla! I think the birthday brunch sounds wonderful. What yummy foods :) The charm bracelet is such a beautiful, heartfelt gift! I bet your frined just loved it.

Look at those pretty little girl toys of Sugarwings, sigh. I would love to pick those up too :)



What wonderful friends to have a birthday brunch and love the bracelet!! xoxoxox Grace


Lovely bracelet, lovely idea. I leave things at the bottom of the stairs to take up when I go and things at the top to take down - guess its universal! Rachaelxo


What a thoughtful friend you are. I bet she really loved the bracelet, put together with such love!

What a great birthday gift. I am so glad the wondering doggie is back. It worries you to death, doesn't it. You have a great day.

That is a fabulous bracelet. I actually typed "braglet" That would work too. LOL

I really need to get busy making some jewelry. You have inspired me. I'm having surgery later this month. I think I will get together some projects I can do in bed when I'm recovering.

Note to self...... have more simple gatherings with friends. I tend to overdo it when I have friends over.


Hi Karla

Any brunch you put together would be so special! What a nice idea for your pal!


Love the bracelet, thanks for the tips. That would make a great Christmas idea too. LOVE the Dorothy dolls sweet face too.

What a wonderful gift - with love from friends. So special


A charm bracelet made by many friends sounds like the best gift ever! What a wonderful way to have a collection of memories.

Do you have a recipe for the vanilla yogurt? I would love to try something that would make me think of you.

And I like the idea of a birthday candle in cinnamon rolls. Maybe I'll also do one of those for an un-birthday celebration. ;->

But let's not forget the gifts of love you receive, then lovingly in turn share with all of us. Thank you for the smiles!


Hey Karla! What a cool idea the birthday bracelet is. I'm sure the birthday girl will treasure that -

I do the same thing making piles on the stairs to carry up next time I pass by...then I tell our kids not to leave their things on the stairs cause it's dangerous, someone could trip, you know? haha. That's where the phrase "do as I say, not as I do" comes in handy :)

Love the bracelet idea Karla!

Can't wait to see your post for the Pet Parade! The party is ON NOW--go see the video...and I heard you won something.

love, kelee & oliver


Hi Karla,
What a great birthday gift and birthday
celebration!! I'm sure your friend truly
appreciated the special gift and brunch.
I know I would. :)
The way you wrapped the bracelet is pretty
also. Love it!!!!
I hope all is going well with your sweet
Twinkle. Did she participate in the birthday brunch?

P.S. The little pumpkin is adorable.
Do you make individual ones to sell?

I love the bracelet!

What a precious comment about Sugarwings. You need to let us know how she likes school.



I love that bracelet!

Kerryanne English

Gosh Karla... I've missed the last few posts but have caught up with all your news now.

So glad twinkle is back and little Dorothy has her Toto. What a great idea the 40th bracelet was - I bet your friend appreciated it too.

What a lovely birthday brunch, Karla. The charm bracelet is such a thoughtful and special gift idea. p.s. My vintage paper prize ribbon from you arrived and I adore it - thanks so much!


I know what you mean. I just love finding Humbug's little stash of Important Things To Her that she's left somewhere for Cinderella here to pick up. Makes me smile :o)

I love the bd pressie you made. What a gorgeous, and incredibly thoughtful pressie.



Love the way the charm bracelet turned out--very fun!!


Glad you had fun at the birthday party. It should be interesting to see how she looks decked out in french ephemera with her strong features. I like what you said there at the end of your post about cleaning the pretty dishes while thinking back over the time just spent. Happy happies.


Oh, I would've loved a bracelet like that for my 40th! Maybe for 50! I do the same thing: pile my son's (and my!) stuff at the bottom of the stairs for the next trip up...YOUR stairs, however, are gorgeous!
