My Birthday present…..






This silver sparkling

beauty was a birthday present from my sweet hubby.

I have wanted one for many years

and when I saw this at the antique show last week 

I asked (begged & pleaded) 

my hubby to buy it for me as a birthday gift.

I like that it isn’t perfect so I don’t

have to slave a way

keeping it perfectly polished all the time.

Have a great weekend!!!!!!


Hope you will consider

Love it! It looks great in the center of your table! I like that it stands out that way. Now that will remind you of your birthday every year! When is your birthday? Did I miss it?

Happy Birthday and how nice you got something you wanted, Des! I love bargaining for something I want as a gift. It makes sense though doesn't it, this way they know we won't return it!

What a wonderful birthday gift! My mama does that a lot to my step dad. As matter of fact he has a "hiding" place where he has probable several years worth of gifts for my mama that she has told him at some point in time she has wanted and he buys and puts up till a special occasion. Hope your day was a grand one!!

Hi Des,
Your hubby did great! I just love these domes, too. I've not been able to get one yet, because they are oh so expensive, but I'm going to keep my eyes peeled. Someday my prince will come...
Hope you had a happy birthday!
