Officially old!

According to my darling husband that is, lol. It is my birthday today, my 60th birthday, and he gleefully told me that now I am officially old. I did try to tell him that 60 is the new 40, and that I am only middle aged, but he wouldn't have it, I am now an official member of the Old Fogey Club :-). Thats quite enough of that, though, I'd much rather show you something pretty than talk about age.

Just before we left for France, I received a little package, which had travelled all the way from Australia. Judy from Judy's Fabrications had a giveaway a little while ago and I was one of the lucky winners. I love her rich and exuberant, colourful style, and I was thrilled to receive one of her amazing hearts -






Isn't the beadwork just amazing? 

She also gifted me with this pretty French themed tag, perfect for my French craftavan -


And talking of gifts..... I received some beautiful birthday gifts from very dear bloggy friends, which I'll show you over the next few days. They are a real feast for the eyes, so check back soon :-).

I am off now to do a little bit of birthday shopping with my DH. He wants to buy me a plum tree for my birthday, isn't that just the bestest present?

First of all, Happy Birthday! Welcome to the 60s' club xxx
I love Judys' work and hearts and pink especially, so I'm a bit envious of your heart gift!
^0 would be the new 40 if it wasn't for all the aches and pains lol!

I follow Judy's blog -I love her color and rich work-lucky you! Now 60 is okay. I will be 70 on my birthday in May and that is the tough one to believe!! I was never one to worry about age--but this birthday has got me bamboozled!! But my husband always says that it's better than the alternative!! Happy birthday and enjoy being just 60!!

Happy Birthday! And you are quite correct in stating you are not old, just a bit craftier perhaps :-) Have a great day.

HAPPY BDAY LIZ!! 60 is the new 40, I'm hoping it is. I will let you know when I turn 60 if I feel 40, doubt it. LOL

That little heart is gorgeous and I adore the French tag too. I have about 4-1/2 on you as I will be 65 in Sept. That could be depressing, if I let it, but I do not intend to. Happy Birthday and many more happy ones for you!
