In my family birthdays are an excuse for extended celebrations. We don’t just honor the “birth” day – we give the entire month to the birthday girl or boy. August is my birthday month (and my brother’s as well) so we’re in the throes of a “wild birthday rumpus.”
These lovely earrings are from my sister-in-law. As a collector of hands, in all shapes and forms, they are the perfect gift for me!
Another earring pix – coupled with a favorite postcard (given to me by an old friend) of Christo and Jean-Claude’s “Running Fence.” I think that all of their thought-provoking installations are visual gifts.
August is full of gifts, both received and given. Making homemade blackberry and raspberry jam is an easy way to capture summer in a jar. Having enough to share with my pals is the perfect way to celebrate my wonderful birthday month!
