Birthday Girl

I'm the Birthday Girl today
I've received birthday wishes and gifts in my favorite colors.
My card from Mr. Maison Decor was perfection.

 This sweet miniature Eiffel Tower porcelain box was a gift from my sister-in-law.
Cards from my family make my day!
This morning I opened some cards and the mailman is coming later on...
Anyone celebrating a birthday gets to have their cards on the mantle.
By the time the afternoon mail arrived I had quite a collection.
Mr. Maison Decor is taking me ice skating on
 my new skates for the second time this week.
 I am a beginner and my first time went really well~
so much more fun than going to the gym.
I'm no Peggy Fleming, but wasn't she so elegant on ice?
I just imagine myself being Peggy.
My Inspiration 
My Reality
 Yes, I am actually skating and not on my #ss
Mr. and Mrs. Maison Decor hit the ice!
My son calls us "America's Couple"
I think that is so sweet.
The other fun thing that happened:
Yesterday I found out I won the pearls from French Buttons~
 Pink pearls!
She picked me by chance out of 211 other bloggers! 
Feeling pretty lucky I have to say.
 Thank you Pamela.
 My heart cake
I will be having a heart shaped birthday cake made
 from pans my mom used to use on my special day.
I'll be the baker, since Mr. Maison Decor does not bake.
However he did make me a yummy tomato and cheese omelet this morning.
I'll be spending the day with him and so I am signing off for now~
Another year older and enjoying (almost) every minute.

  29. Happy Birthday a day late! I'm from the South so I don't see many skates. I had no idea Nike made them. I like! You are just as beautiful as Peggy Fleming. Your little fur hat looks glamorous. Congrats on your win! Sounds like you had a wonderful day.

  33. Happy Birthday! No wonder I like you so much, you are a February birthday girl just like me, mine is on the 21st. What a lovely card your hubby got you, and that fur hat! WOW! Gorgeous!

  34. Happy Birthday Amy, Thank you so much for visiting me and your kind words. I visited your portfolio. It is awesome. I am in love with the ball gown drapes and seem drawn to the asymmetrical designs. You are an artist.
    I am now following you. Hugs, Ginger

  35. Happy Birthday Miss Amy!!!! Looks like you had a wonderful fun day! Hugs, Courtney

  36. Happy Birthday Amy! Hope it was a lot of fun. Best of luck with the skating.

  37. Hope you had a wonderful birthday! Its mine tomrrow- got to love being Aquarius ( we rock!)

  38. Hello and a very Happy Birthday to you! It's so funny with the heart shaped cake as my Dad's birthday was on Valentines Day and each year my Mom made a cake for him and now continues to carry out that tradition each year with a heart shaped cake on VDay.. Mom loves to bake so this year we made quite a few heart cakes! Anyway just stopped by to say hello!

  39. Sorry I missed this post till now, but Happy Belated Birthday! It sounds like you had a very special day. You look gorgeous in your fur hat and I love the skates.


  40. Hi Amy, I am just getting caught up on my favorite blogs after my trip. Happy belated birthday!! I hope you had a fabulous day and congrats on winning the pearls.

  41. Amy, you know what is sadly ironic about your post combining skating with your birthday on Feb 15th? That is the day our third cousin, Gregory Kelley of Winchester, died with all the other skaters from the US Skating Team, on that plane crash 50 years ago, on Feb 15th, 1961. When I saw a photo of Peggy Fleming in the Sports Illustrated magazine article about the crash, it reminded me about your post. She was the first American to win a championship after the loss of the whole team. Greg was just 16 years old at the time. Peggy was 13 or 14. Sorry for the sad note on your blog, it was just a very strange coincidence.
