Birthday Indulgences


     How lovely for Mother Nature to cooperate and send beautiful crisp fall weather for my birthday? I'm in the art room now working on some things and the sky is blue and clear but there's a chilly breeze and the window is open. Windows open weather is a rare luxury here in Oklahoma. I take it when I can!

   So because a) its my birthday and b) because I'm pregnant and also, lets be honest, 3) because I just wanted to, I had birthday cake and coffee for breakfast. If I've never told you, I am just silly for Pumpkin Spice coffee in the (Target) Archer's Farms brand. I usually turn my nose up at flavored coffee but good grief, this stuff is good.

   The cake was German Chocolate, my favorite kind. Its sort of a miracle I've never just bought a can of the icing and sat and ate the whole thing. Because I totally could. My mama also gave me some pretty autumn flowers in a pumpkin. It's nice to feel like a whole day is yours to be special. I am 32 years old today. Born in the afternoon, of course, I just couldn't get around for a morning arrival.



  Of course its just no fun to celebrate alone, so I'm going to give you all a chance to get in on the festivities! I'm going to do a giveaway for a set of my new autumn post cards!! Just right for autumn greetings, don't you think? Since I'll be leaving at the end of the week, the giveaway time is pretty short-- I'll pick a winner Wednesday so I can hurry and get it in the mail before I head to "the land of all things epically autumn"-- New England! All you need to do is leave a comment here on this blog post! Tell me something lovely.

   Hope you have a wonderful day today-- pretty leaves and cool breezes. Welcome, autumn!~

  1. Hooray for Autumn! I live in Tucson, AZ so we don't really get much of it here, but it is my favorite season. I just had my birthday too (on the 20th) and am fully in favor of getting to do whatever you want for your birthday, including eating cake for breakfast!

  3. I am sending wishes to you for a wonderful birthday! This happens to be my mother's birthday as well. She was born in 1908, so is no longer with us except in spirit.

    That is a very nutritious breakfast for you and that baby!

    New England in Autumn is fantastic! Enjoy!

  11. Birthday wishes for you!! I am so jealous of your fall like weather!! It is horribly humid here today after a morning of steady rain. It is officially fall so that is hopeful. Enjoy that cake because it looks just delicious!!! If I had one at home, dare I say I would be eating it for breakfast , lunch, and dinner!!!!!

  14. Best wishes for a Happy Birthday WEEK (I'm all for an extended celebration)! LOVE your artwork. I've been checking in with you daily for a while, but am not sure now where I discovered you! Perhaps it was by way of Erin at I Heart New England ... or by way of a link celebrating Tasha Tudor's birthday ... or maybe linked somewhere to Gladys Taber? Are you a 'girlfriend' of Susan Branch? If so, maybe THAT's where I found you, as I'm a die-hard fan. In any event, I'm enjoying your posts and appreciate the time and effort involved with sharing them. Happy Autumn!

  15. You have the Autumn Victoria!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you know that used to be my favorite mag? Then it was Domino. Then Cookie. But I still have great fondness for Victoria. When it used to arrive in my mailbox, I would seriously do a happy dance. I have several of the Victoria cookbooks!

    Happiest of birthdays to you!!!!! XOXOXO

  17. Wishing you a very happy birthday! I so enjoy reading your blog, and seeing the lovely original art that you create! My niece (who is also my goddaughter) is also expecting a baby boy, my first great nephew, who is expected to arrive in December... any suggestions on an (easy) baby boy blanket to knit or crochet?

    1. Hi Mary! Thanks for your visit! The baby boy blanket Im makign now is really easy-- I'm just doing knit stitch but changing yarn colors to make stripes in red, cream and blue. Nothing easier to me than just row after row of knit stitch! Ive got some pics of it in progress on my instagram (you can see it in the sidebar.

  18. Happy Birthday lovely lady. So glad you got some proper fall weather for your special day ... I know autumn is your favourite season (and mine too). Cake for breakfast is always allowed on birthdays, in fact it's permissible to eat cake all day if you want :)

  19. Glad you had a fabulous birthday with all things autumn. I am so happy that it seems there will be fall weather for our wedding! I don't think we will have German Chocolate, though... How about lemon filled?

  20. Happy Birthday! I love German Chocolate Cake, too. Yum.
