Day After Birthday

Aren't these beautiful pink birthday roses? I went back to work today and my friend Cheryl surprised me with these soft pink roses when she came in. She was very happy that she knew my favorite color was pink. She also took great delight in telling every customer that yesterday was my birthday. It was a fun day getting back into work and seeing everyone again.

This is something I am working on. The paint color is key lime...definitely not one of my usual colors. I love how it looks with the pink roses though. I really like this color. I am so excited, I have been working on some really fun things this past week that I'm not ready to show you yet. This tin is just a little peek.

I made a batch of homemade sugar scrub. I love this stuff. Organic sugar, mango butter, and other yummy stuff for your skin. It smells sooooo yummy too. This one smells like fluffy pink cotton candy. It's very scrubby and very moisturizing.

This is a weigela from my old garden, I think this variety is called Carnival.

I added some new pics to my Flickr Photostream. Short post today...have to get up at 2 am and tomorrow I have to get up at midnight to go to work. Not much sleep for me over the next couple of days.

Check out this cute giveaway from Little Reminders of Love.

A vert happy belated Birthday to you. The pink roses are gorgeous. It is so nice when someone gives you flowers. I can't remember the last time it happened to me!
That sugar scrub looks interesting. Could I be a bit cheeky and ask for the recipe?
