Jesse and I had a lovely time at my birthday celebration at The Nittany Lion Inn, and I think I may have some photos to share with you. (I say “I think” because you know how it is, the pictures look great on the camera viewthingy but when you get them home onto your computer it’s a whole other story…) But in the meantime I wanted to pop in to say hello. I’m typing this while I take a much-needed tea break from painting the bathroom all morning. I’m FINALLY painting the bathroom. I can’t believe I’m typing these words and it’s truly happening. For the past 3 years we’ve been looking at grey (think primer) paint and old wallpaper. I look like the abominable snowman covered in white paint but I’m having my tea in my fancy, favorite Brambly Hedge teacup and cookies (thank you Mom!) on my new Pip Studio plates which were a little gift to me and I wanted to share with you. Aren’t they so pretty? I love the attention to details in the design, even the box they came in is a keeper. Friends, I’m wishing you a relaxing and joyful weekend as we move into one of the best times of the year. Yay, December! And yay, Friday!
