That's right... today is my 50th birthday! I know I seem so much younger, what with my youthful typing over here, but that's right I am now 1/2 way to 100, as was pointed out to me by Max yesterday! I'm hoping to make it all the way there, but I'm also hoping he gives up on teasing his mom and pointing out the obvious to me by then!
Now, having been born in the 60's you know I didn't grow up with the whole, I'm going to a birthday party and I'm getting me a treat bag, right? I'm guessing most of you didn't either... we put on our best and most favorite outfit and we went to our friends house for a rousing game of pin the tail on the donkey and hide and seek, but the birthday girl or boy received all of the presents!
Well, I'm about to rectify that for someone at my party today!
Cuz, I'm having a giveaway, that's how! Throwing a little Junie B. Jones atcha! Is it bad when a childrens book is a good read for bedtime because it makes you giggle? :)
(with Max ofcourse)
So for the rest of this week, I am going to add a little something to this bag that I made and then one lucky party guest will go home with their very own treat bag!
It is made with our favorite material... drop cloth with a matching ruffle and then I crocheted the strap and the trim out of another utilitarian material, butchers string and added a vintage bakelite belt buckle for a bit of vintage goodness!
So stop on by this week and see what else I toss in the treat bag and add me a comment or two on any of the upcoming birthday posts and become a follower if you aren't one already for your chance to win the Birthday Treat Bag!
I'm linking this up to White Wednesday, Link Love, and Wow Us Wednesdays and Transformation Thursday!
Thanks for coming to my party!
