Birthday Blessings!

Today was filled with birthday blessings.
I received many lovely gifts and well wishes from family and friends:).
Hubby gifted me with this beautiful antique garnet brooch.
Along with the brooch was a tin type of the woman who originally wore it on her riding habit!
She is so elegant in her Victorian attire.
I feel blessed to now wear her beautiful brooch.

Needless to say it was a wonderful day filled with love:).

Thanks to everyone who made my day so special!

Happy Birthday! I'm glad you had a great day. You are indeed lucky to have such a thoughtful husband that picks out such wonderful gifts! It must be rare to find a piece of antique jewelry with a photo of the original owner wearing it. How sweet is that!!

Happy Birthday, I'd make some remark but it would just remind me of the fact that I'm getting older as well. Glad you had a wonderful day, and I know today will exciting also.
