My Birthday Month continues…


How happy do you get when I come home to a large box on my front porch?

I get real happy!



If you follow me on instagram, I shared three beautifully wrapped gifts sent by my fave cousin Laurie and her family. She is always tardy for my special day, but that’s okay with me. The adage “better late than never” holds true. I could not wait to rip into each one.

Inside were custom accent pillows by Thibodaux, LA artist Lisa Papa. The martini pillow with “Cheers Y’all” is for me, and the red wine pillow with Cheers is for J. They are perfect in the breakfast room sitting on the accent chairs. The small size makes for a perfect chair pillow. The pillows are a great addition to my decor.






I also received a collection of Claire Burke Original scent assorted products from my godchild, John David. Ain’t he kind?

Birthday treats, y’all!


  1. Perfect pillows in your precious palace. Alliteration. Hugs, Lena

  2. Tres adorable! A birthMONTH is the only way to go and I should know, I've been doing it for years. Excellent means of justification..."Should I get this? Oh, why not. It's my birthMONTH, after all."

  3. March birthday month for me too, but you scored on the gifts! Those pillows are fabulous and they look great in your room. Don't forget tomorrow is April Fool's, don't let your students trick you. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  4. Good evening, Ron! OMG, I just ADORE those pillows! I love Lisa's creations! You sure have had a great birthday month, and I did, too! Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo

  5. Wow I wish I had a cousin like that! She knows you well :-) The pillows are perfect and I love Claire Burke products!

  6. I am extremely impressed along with your writing abilities, Thanks for this great share.

  7. This is really a good source of information, I will often follow it to know more information and expand my knowledge, I think everyone should know it, thanks Best Pillow shams service provider.
