Mom's Birthday Pressie

Mom got a birthday pressie in the mail from Auntie Lydia, Dave and Sophie!  Aren't Dave and Sophie  handsome pups!

 Auntie Lydia made this beautiful tote!  Mom just loves it and she especially loves the vibrant orange poppy fabric!  It's PERFECT!
Can you see my pretty hair/furband?  It's a ribbon with poppies all over it! Don't I look pretty!
 Auntie Lydia also made this gorgeous zippered fabric case.  Mom is definitely all set for the next trip that she takes! Thank you so much, Auntie Lydia!  You do fabulous work with your sewing machine and you're so very creative!
 She also sent beads and buttons for all of mom's wool candle mats that she makes ☺
 This WireFoxTerrier wool candle mat is on facebook right now.  It's a donation mat that peeps will bid on and the monies go to help Terriers in Europe that are in need.  

And Auntie Lydia made this card!  It's one of the flowers in her garden. Isn't it fabulous and it's PURPLE!
Thank you so very much, Auntie, Lydia, Dave and Sophie!  You made our mom very, very happy on her special day!
And mom wants to thank each and every one of you for all of the fabulous birthday greetings and cards and wishes.  She had a wonderful day ☺

 And we have some rather disturbing news~~
Mom has treated herself to a new flashy beast.
After all this time, she finally broke down and bought something that will point and shoot and fit in her pocket.  No more lugging around the Kodak dinosaur!
At least Molly looks happy about it!
 She's having fun taking pictures in the garden.   These are Coneflowers~
 And this is Queen Anne's Lace!
 And balloon flower~
 And hydrangea~
We have a funny feeling that we're going to be seeing a whole lot more of her new point and shoot Lumix!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots♥
Mitch and Molly

What a talented auntie! Lots of fantastic stuff....but we didn't like hearing that your mum might travel! We hope you get to go with her.

We have a aim and shoot. Great for taking animal photos.

Those are special presents. Your Mom deserves them on her special day.

Watch out, new cameras mean lots of posing. Be sure to hold out for good treats.

Happy birthday to your mum! Those pressies are lovely, and your head decoration is also great.

I'm looking forward to more shots from the new camera.

Dexter said...

My momma has one of those pocket flashies. Annoying to be sure. You are good sports to pose so nicely.

Kisses,
Dexter

Sherry said...

Three cheers for point 'n shoot! Don't worry, Mitch and Molly, it doesn't have to flash every time it photographs your gorgeous selves. Looks like your mom bought the camera just in time to photograph the beautiful presents Lydia made.
