Two lovely presents on my Birthday

Today I am 33 years old! There are many things to be grateful for, including wonderful friends that I have met through my blog.

Right before Christmas, Jane, who writes surprised me when she emailed me to let me know I had won her giveaway. The wonderful goodies haven't arrived in the mail yet but they should arrive any day. This is a picture of my prize:

There are a couple of things you should know about my lovely friend Jane. She is sneaky (she entered a bunch of us in a giveaway and then told us we were eligible to win this prize!) She has an Etsy shop, and it is fantastic. She is a very generous person.

A couple of days ago I was really shocked that I won the 1rst prize in Drora's Giveaway. I kept going back and checking the comment entries to make sure it wasn't a mistake. Drora writes a wonderful blog at . She is warm, generous and caring. Drora always tries to help out new bloggers/miniaturists. She is very genuine and sincere. This is what I won from Drora's giveaway, and I can't wait for it to arrive!

Now, since it is my birthday, I thought I would include 5 random facts about me.

  1.  I don't have a belly button! Really. I used to tell people it was because I was hatched in an egg, but the reason is actually that I had an umbilical hernia when I was a baby, and it was removed then.
  2. I can't watch scary movies, or really violent ones because they give me nightmares! I do like a good suspense drama though.
  3. I often make up rhymes and songs that I sing when I'm doing household chores as a way to amuse myself. I think this is because I spent many years working with young children and because I'm naturally goofy!
  4. I love to read. Magazines, Non-Fiction Books,  Fiction Books (Maeve Binchy is one of my favorite authors, sadly she passed away last summer.) I will read pretty much anything I can get my hands on.
  5. I often come across as shy, but people who know me really well know that is not true. I am very silly/affectionate with my close friends.
