My Birthday in Pictures November 13, 2009

100_1467Ok, last paint picture (maybe). I just wanted to highlight the contrast between the two colors. Now on to my birthday.




Is this setup positively drool-worthy? We went to Rebecca’s Upholstery something or other in dtf and they had an upstairs. So Chloe and I had to go. I’d never been in there before and I loved it so much. The merchandise was great but even if it hadn’t been, I’d have still loved it with the hardwood floors, exposed brick walls and original windows.
















Chloe posed for this one. I wish that I thought about trying harder to get her profile in the shot but it’s still sweet.100_1473














100_1476I was able to get a shot of the roof of the building across the street from the window. I’ve never been able to get a very good glimpse of it because I’m usually on the ground but I love it.








I got a ridiculous amount of stuff this year. That doesn’t usually happen.This year I got two watches which weren’t really birthday presents but were given to Amanda and me by my aunt. She used to sell Citizen watches but now she sells Rolex and couldn’t use these. Amanda didn’t like hers so she gave it to me. Nice. I also got two coffee pots because Travis didn’t coordinate with my parents. Which meant I had to choose. Which meant I had guilt. I kept the one Travis got me because we’d picked it out but my parents had looked for two weeks for the one they got me. I hate choosing in situations like that. And I got a coffee grinder- a nice one. And a CHI to keep my hair nice and straight. So I guess my birthday was kind of a big deal. Not that it isn’t usually but it seemed like a really big deal this year…and it was really nice. So I can keep my coffee habit in style, my hair in style, keep time really in style and I have yet to determine what to do with a gift card and cash.

So I think I could get used to this…

    That is more of a contrast than I would have thought. Cool.

    I love those pictures. Such a beautiful place to look around. Places like that can just make you feel good.

    I’m so glad your birthday was so fruitful! It’s a good to be loved…and it’s good that “love” can come in gift wrap now and then.

  2. Sounds like you had a happy birthday! Made me laugh that you got things in twos. 🙂

    That shop looks fabulous!

    I just finished the fourth season of “Gilmore Girls” on DVD. Love that show! I’ve been trying to figure out the “apple down” reference you made yesterday. I should know it, having watched GG nonstop for the past two months!

    Awww – hooray for birthdays! I love your pictures of downtown Franklin. The wavy glass in the windows is my favorite thing of all and I really think I could curl up in that upstairs corner and just live there. With a good book, of course. Oh – and maybe your extra coffee maker 🙂

    Julia, I’m really trying to remember what season that is. I’m pretty sure it’s season 5 when she’s working really, really hard on getting the Dragonfly going. Don’t you just love her Inn? It’s fantastic. It makes me (briefly) think that I’d like to own one 😉
