I Have Always Hated It . . .

when my friends would give me a Christmas gift and then say, I spent a little extra so it is also your birthday present!!  I guess that is what happens when your birthday is 2 days after Christmas.

Well, this year, I did the same thing to myself!!  LOL!!!  I have been drooling over the gorgeously appointed homes of some of my blogging friends (like Shell over at The Raspberry Rabbits) and I have been looking at this 36" custom clock on Etsy for a year now.  So, I decided to splurge and get it for me for Christmas AND my birthday!!


And then the super fun part was that Jennifer, the darling young gal that hand makes and custom paints these exquisite clocks, lives right here in Logan - just about a mile from where I live!!  If you want to see Jennifer's whole collection, you can visit her at her Etsy shop, JenniferClocks - Making time Look Timeless.  Happy birthday to me!!

Well, I had no idea you had a birthday today! Happy, happy day, Kris! Lunch next week will have to be my treat. I'd take you today, but you don't want my cold!
Very cool clock--and no shipping charge, I assume--makes it extra good! : )

Happy Birthday! My oldest granddaughter turned 3 today. It is hard having a birthday this close to Christmas. My son's birthday is the 12th and I always waited until after his birthday before putting up the tree. Enjoy your gorgeous clock.

Happy Birthday, Kris!! May your future Christmasses be as merry and bright as your birthdays of the previous year :>) And may your (new) year (ahead) be blessed with health and happiness.
Hope you'll have a wonderful day.
Cheers!
