That 70's kind of feeling Old School Picture...Today Is The First day Of The rest Of Your Life

When I found this old picture it had a yellowed clear plastic stapled on top of it which made it look as old as it was.
I removed it and the velvet background looks as good as new.
Man this reminds me of something I would have had hanging up in my room back in the 70's :D
Taking it to the spot at Timeless this week.
And yes....that saying "Today is the 1st day Of The rest Of Your Life" still rings true.
Seize the day peeps!

Upcycled vintage dried flowers in a tiny bottle and new heart locket necklace for Sarah

So Monday....had a ham in the oven because the kids were coming over for dinner and checked facebook
(which I don't keep up with all that often these days....)
my social skills network yada yada department seems to be severely lacking LOL!'s been awhile since I've even taken the time out to blog anything here.
Anyhoo....I saw on facebook that it was Sarah's birthday....
and it is the one thing I like the most about Facebook....
if you log in everyday you can remember everyone's Birthday.:D
So....while dinner was in the oven I had a bit of time to whip up a small present for Sarah....
I used a tiny glass vial and put in some dried flowers that the girls had picked out in the garden and Chloe and I had placed into the flower press awhile back....
I also added a vintage dangler crystal and a new heart locket.
Sarah does not wear a lot of jewelry but she liked it :D
We had a nice family dinner
and cheers to celebrating many more family Birthdays!
