My BFF, Ginger, had her birthday this week. We frequently laugh about being VINTAGE GIRLFRIENDS, since we now consider ourselves to be "of a certain age" and because we have been friends for more than fifty years! 
Here's the card I made for her. It is made in a VINTAGE style....LOL
We went to our favorite places for a little shopping and a delicious meal....The Dove's Nest  Gifts and Tearoom.
You would think it was my birthday....I found these lovely little chips of china that have figures of speech written on them in calligraphy....right up my alley! I put them in the saucer of a teacup that Ginger gave me for Christmas! 
While creating this lovely little display this evening, I had to put some vintage buttons and flowers in this cup and saucer that Ginger also gave me for Christmas! Doesn't it make a beautiful display? Both cups are sitting on an antique desk that is in my scrapbook room.
For THE GRAND FINALE, we could not resist a visit to our FAVORITE  scrapbook store ..... THE CRAFTY SCRAPPER, where we both are serving a second year on the design team! 

Hope you had a wonderful day, Ginger!
