Happy 40th Birthday, Molly!



Today's tea is in honor of my daughter's 40th Birthday! She's the beautiful mother of four of my precious grandchildren. 


 On the day that Molly was born, my sweet hubby, Rich,  brought roses for her.  He wanted to be the first man in her life to do that.  I'm sure he's smiling down from heaven today.



My friend Debbie, from Mountain Breaths made birthday blocks for her son awhile back.  I kept that idea in the back of my head to do for my daughter.  Debbie told me to use a fence post and get the blocks cut in squares, which I had done, and my son, Mike,  sanded them for me.  I searched through old photo albums and chose the pictures.  Mike scanned them into a square size and printed them out.  Then, like Debbie advised, I used Mod Podge to adhere the photos to the blocks and then Mod Podged on top.  I used scrap book paper for the fronts of the blocks and found some pretty initials for her name.  You can see the blocks that Debbie made hereThanks for the inspiration, Debbie! 

 

I was the winner of this pretty teacup from Martha at Martha's Favorites.  Martha sent me two teas to try, along with a darling dish for my used teabag.    Thank you, Martha!!


Happy Birthday, beautiful daughter!!  May you have much more than 40 more years of joy and happiness!  I love you!

I am sharing this with: 


Thank you for your visit!  xo

  3. How sweet that Mike wanted to be the first man in Molly's life to give her roses. I bet he is also smiling at the wonderful job his wife did on the blocks ;o) I love the old photos you used. Happy Birthday to beautiful Molly! I should probably get started on blocks for #1 son for Christmas. They do take a while as you know.

  4. Happy Birthday to you Molly! (One of my favorite girl names, btw.) I love the name blocks. I would copycat that. She is now and clearly has always been so lovely! I loved the part about her dad wanting to be the first man to bring her flowers.
