Birthday Roses

Last Sunday was my birthday.  A big birthday – more on that later.

For as long as I can remember, my dad has given my sisters and me flowers on our birthdays. This year called for 30 white roses – so gorgeous!

She’s so creative – she and her now husband visited dozens of antique and secondhand stores and had a selection of eclectic vases, bird figurines and other trinkets on the tables for their guests to choose from. I’m so glad that I snagged this vase, I use it all the time! It’s so unique and vintage and makes me think of Anne.
