Oh Shell, you are so sweet!

Thank you so much for this beautiful birthday gift!!! I may have to frame this card, by the way it is so pretty. You all know how talented my lovely friend Shell is, this the surprise that awaited me when I came home last night from work.....
Can you believe it? This is what Shell gave me for my birthday, oh my goodness, I am speechless.......spoiled or what...... I LOVE it!!! She even included a beautiful hanger so all I have to do is put it up, which I am going to do after the Dutchman goes to work.....(he doesn't really like it when I bring out the hammer, not sure why!)
When I first saw this on Shell's blog Raspberry Rabbits, I was immediately in love!!!
Shell, thank you, thank you....I will post a picture of it's new home as soon as I can....
Hugs xx

Happy Happy Birthday My Friend. Your surprise is so pretty and our friend Shell is such a sweet person. I enjoyed catching up on reading your blog. Why don't men trust us with hammers? Have a wonderful birthday. take care Your Missouri Friend.

Very, very lovely Mags.
I get the hammer and nail thing. My husband is the same way.
So glad you got such a lovely gift. Diane

Men certainly do have hammer issues, especially when it's in the hands of a woman.
Shell is a sweetheart and so are you, so it's truly a match made in heaven. Happy Belated Birthday Mags.
I understand March isn't easy for you and you deserve a little surprise to brighten the grey days,
