what's in the birthday giveaway bag today...

First things first.. tonight was Hannah's special dance at school so I'm going to have a proud momma moment and share a couple of pics of her and her bestie first...

ohhhh isn't she so pretty, I just love this little girl...
she isn't going to let me call her that for very much longer and I DO know that she is growing up but that is what she will always be to me.  Duane calls her "baby girl" and we both call her Boo.

Danielle prettied up her hair for her...

forgive the lighting, it was too late for any sun, not that we had any today!

these two are so fun together, I love their silliness and the laughter that goes on between them!

oh that darn light...

o.k. let's take a break from the proud momma moment and get down to business!

What's in the bag today?


how about a vintage "Hearty Congratulations" postcard?

and while I'm at it...

how about a vintage postcard for your Easter decorations?

and while I'm at it...

I'm going to send the flower frog with them
just in case by some small chance you don't have one of your very own!

So there you have it!

If you haven't thrown your name in the hat yet all you have to do is...

* leave a comment on this post or one of the other birthday posts...
*become a follower if you aren't one already...

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!

Thank you for indulging me my momma moment...
Enjoy your night, and stay tuned for tomorrows last treat bag post!

Sweet Dreams, Theresa xoxo

  8. What a beautiful girl you have her dress.

  10. Oh what a proud Momma you are, so cute and your daughter is a real beauty! It brought back memories of my daughters Prom and all the pictures we took, lots of good memories (thanks for the trip down memory lane, lol) And I have to tell you I Love all the vintage goodies and I have been looking for one of those metal frogs for a bit, boy I'd love to win just that, lol, but the other goodies are great also. I sure can't wait for Auction and yard sale time again, one thing I really miss about the winter, hee hee!
    ((Hugs)) Theresa

  11. We are both so lucky to have such beautiful Hannahs. Hope the dance was magical for her.

    P.S.~my 37 and 40 year old sons still answer to "Babe"

  13. Lovely daughter you have:) and that dress is SO pretty ♥

    Hugs from Marian

  14. Hi Theresa, looks like you had a fabulous birthday. I could get lost in that grocery store too! So much to choose from. My hubby loves to talk to people all the time. That was what was endearing to me all those years ago. Your giveaway items are so pretty, especially since you've made most of them. Sweet! Hope your baby girl had a lovely time at the dance. My besties here and I used to take photos with our friends using Charlie's Angels poses and then we would make up tales to go with them, we would give each "criminal" a name and how we were going to take them down -- all in good fun! Our friends loved those scrapbooks and still talk about them with others. Have a super dee duper Saturday. Best wishes and blessings, Tammy

  15. aww, they grow up so quickly don't they? my daughter just turned 21 and i still call her baby girl!

  16. Your Boo is beautiful! No need for perfect light her and her friend lighted up the room with their pretty smiles.Love flower frogs they are something I always seek out at fleamarkets,amazing all the differnt shapes and sizes.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  17. She is just gorgeous! Isn't it amazing that you don't realize how grown up they are until they are dressed for their first dance? Love the little postcards and the frog. I was just looking at some of those the other day. I so need some! Hint hint!

  18. Wow, Wat een mooie meiden...
    De zwart witte jurk vind ik echt heel mooi.
    Soms zou ik zelf ook wel weer jong willen zijn,, haha en gewoon alles nog een keertje over willen doen..
    Je mag trots zijn op die mooie dame.
    Lieve groet Inge
