Who's getting older"? Not me!

Good Morning!  I am sitting here watching the snow fall.  Big, fluffy flakes, though it was 50 degrees here yesterday, so it's really not sticking. Yet.  It is supposed to be 7 degrees tonight in Southtown!  Ridiculous! 

This weekend my sister and I celebrated our Birthday's together, like always!  She was born on the 20th and I was born on the 22nd, 5 years apart.
Neither of us really like cake, but I made one anyway, because the rest of the family does.  Together we are 101 years old! 
My sister also gave me some awesome gifts!
Yep!  That's exactly what I wanted!  It's almost time to get some seeds started in the greenhouse and I go through lots of potting soil!  That's me with my big mouth open and my sis beside me with her big mouth open.  Seems to run in the family.
Then I got the biggest surprise of all.
It was wrapped in the coolest paper.  She had cut out paper dolls and other adorable images and pasted them on the brown paper wrapping.  I just couldn't tear it.  I had to save it!
Inside was my sink!
The only missing piece to my pink kitchen set!
I have all the pieces now!  I am so excited.  I just need to find a place where I can display all 5 pieces.
I gave my sister some things that she had mentioned that were kind of boring, a crock pot, a teasing comb, a scary movie,  and the Pioneer Woman's Holiday cookbook.  I also made her some glasses cases that I had pinned on Pinterest and she had commented that she wanted these.
One had a dog and one had a cat.  You can find the instructions here:
They are quite easy to make and are just adorable.
I also went to an estate sale on Saturday and bought an entire box of vintage patterns.

I love the red, white and blue outfit on the left and am thinking that it's going to be my Easter outfit this year. 

Some I keeping, most I am going to try and sell on Ebay. 
The other thing I bought this weekend has me dreaming of spring
Lots of seeds!  Some like the leeks need to be started ASAP!  I already have some cabbage plants started and plan to get these leeks started this coming weekend.  Awww, spring dreaming on a snowy day!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!



to YOU!!!
How fun to get gifts that you LOVE!
I hope you have a Great BIRTHDAY!
