An Antigues Fair and Some Lovely Birthday Cards

We just spent a week down at the Brimfield Antiques Fair in Brimfield, MA. What a great event this is if you are interested in antiques at all! This is the lovely Bed and Breakfast we stayed in - the Elias Carter HouseIt is right across the street from the fields where the fair is held so we could walk over each day! There are hundreds of vendors in tents along a 1 mile stretch of road.

And this is the wonderful twig planter I asked my DH Kent to buy for me for my birthday that fell on the last day that we were at the fair! I'll be putting 2 large chrysanthimums in this and placing it on my front lawn.And I have to share with you these beautiful birthday cards I received from my wonderful stamping friends on Split Coast.

This one with the lovely corner punches was made by Anne - (jdmommy)
And this beauty was created by Susan (One4Joy) This cute card was made by Vicki (luv2stamp2)
This lovely fold card was sent to me by Lynnor (icensheba)
And Anne (itsapassion) created this beauty
This lovely embossed butterfly card was sent to me by Kay (golly)
I can't tell you how wonderful it was to receive all these good wishes - to know people were thinking of me on my special day! Thank you so much ladies!
Thanks so much for coming by today!
