Happy Monday

Sometimes I have more trouble thinking of a title for my post than the post itself. Today was one of those days. Anyway, I settled on Happy Monday before my allotted time here at my computer is gone!!  DH picked up another big box of cherries so there's work to be done.

I had a birthday last week and received lovely gifts from my children a few of which I wanted to share with you today. The first is a "sculpture" made by my talented older daughter out of scraps of wood molding she found as well as used copper wire from a stripped dryer cord. The metal gate came from Michael's but I think that is the only bought item. A friend of hers makes origami birds which you see in the close-up.

        I received this Botanical themed hardboard suitcase from one of my sons and DIL,

and this lovely tea cup from my youngest son and his girlfriend. It belonged to her grandmother. Aren't I fortunate to get such an heirloom?  
No pattern name beneath only that it is made by Hammersley.

 The aforementioned son and the delicious cake he brought. Doesn't he look formidable holding that knife?  *smile*     I am blessed to have a loving family.
