A Wonderful Gesture, Both Birthday and Otherwise

photos: cindy/quaint handmade

I left a little comment the other day to say Happy Birthday to Cindy who's blog Quaint Handmade is a year old (and just a few days before my own birfday-no i am not a year old) She hosted a very generous giveaway, "$25 for the winner to spend anyway they wanted" with a few choices and even a suggestion that if you win, you could give your money to a charity.
So I suggested she give to The Food Bank for NYC if I should win (remember our xmas raffle? those were the days...) She left me a note this morning to say while I hadn't won, I won anyway and she and Scott would donate $25 in my name. Thank you so much Cindy. It turns out it was a great birthday present for me too...

So, when was your birthday?
This is such a lovely gift.
I send you a virtual cupcake and will buy you a real one when we next get together.
The charming little heart earrings have been much admired.
I said "BOnBon Oiseau"
I have been out of the loop since we picked up the PUPPy on Saturday.
Quite shattered!
