The Last One In The Forties!!!

As a good OLDER , friend sang out to a restaurant full of people, whom I did not know, "This Saturday is Elizabeth's last Fortieth Birthday!! " Nice friend , eh??? Actually, she is a very good friend although a bit of a loose canon in an artsy way! Yes it is true! Saturday will be my 49th birthday and so, to take a page out of other blogger friends' books, or blogs, I am hosting a giveaway! I will be gifting FOUR yes 4 of my paper/fabric birds to four dear blogger friends, old friends, new friends, Red friends, Blue friends, friends who will eat with a fox , friends who will eat in a box, friends who will eat Greann Eggs and Ham. !! All that you must do to have your name added to the proverbial hat is to leave me a comment regarding this post!!! Please be sure to include a way that I amy contact you to get your mailing address should you be a lucky winner!! Comments will be taken thru Wednesday June 4 as I am so late in getting my act together with this announcement.

Each bird will be festooned with a lovely handmade tassel and will be able to hang wherever you desire.

I am so greatful for all the wonderful people who I have met through my blog and the blogging world in general. You all really add so much to my life and to my art experience. I am not the best at responding to every comment, so this is one little way that I can attempt to thank you!! Spread the word amoung your various web rings and groups, the more the merrier and I love meeting new folks. No fear, this will NOT be my last gifting!!

Big hugs to you all, Elizabeth.

Get on out there and make some great art!!!!

I'll be having my last 60th bday next February.....that's an interesting way to think of it.

I also think of it as my 40-28th.
....*S*

So, Happy 49th to you.

Elizabeth...I love your birds. They are beautiful. Also, 49 is the new 39. I am right behind you (48 this year)and wouldn't want to be in my 30's again. My 40's have been the best years of my life so far.

Heather said...

Your little birdies are lovely...i like how you gave them wings of music to soar with.

lol....oh from one that is on the "other side"...cherish your last bit of 40ish..lol...but alas...going over the edge of 50 just begins life! ain't 50 the new 30? hugz and happy birthday!!!

Sue said...

Personally, I don't see why you can't go on having fortieth birthdays if you want to - what's wrong with being forty-ten or nearly forty-fourteen, like me?! Although really I'm still 27 or 28, even if my body feels about 100 and my mirror and birth certificate tell different stories. Anyhow, I love your birdies and I'm poorly with a persistent throat infection (nearly 4 weeks), lost voice (nearly 3 weeks) and painful neck glands (a few days) so I need cheering up. Hope I get lucky! Happy birthday!

artisbliss said...

Well, happy birthday to you Elizabeth, and I have to say I had you pegged as good deal younger than you are, certainly younger than me (I will be 48 in September).

Please put my name in the drawing for one of your birds.

Julie said...

Have a great last of the forties birthday on Saturday. (I must remember that one when I get to the last of the 50's in 3 years time.) I love your hanging birds and would love to win a set. I have been lurking for quite a while now and enjoy your blog and your talent. Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Elizabeth. Please include me in your blog giveaway! It's a great way to celebrate. This is my last year of being in my 50's - yikes! But; wouldn't trade it. Wishing you many artful years ahead!

I just had my last birthday in the 40s. I was upset about being so close to 50 a couple years back, but I've really embraced the second half of life. I wouldn't go back for anything. But I wouldn't mind if the current me could slip into the younger me's bod every once in a while! {wink} Wishing you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and juicy art.

Love those birds & know that one of them would be right at home with it's cousin that I received from you awhile back (he told me he's lonely) :)

Hi Elizabeth, wow lots of comments, I don't have this many on my entire blog :) I'd love to win one of your gorgeous birds. I hope you have a wonderful birthday and many, many more to come. Belinda

CreativeCrone said...

OK, Birthday Girl, as the OLDER friend who "outed" you at Victor's last week, I'm signing up for one of your birds (and if I don't win one, I'll continue to out you. No pressure; just think of it as a "Hush Bird"). I love you and am so grateful to have you in my life (as long as I win a bird).
xoxo, CreativeCrone
