birds, blooms, baskets, and a birthday

couldn't resist posting a sampling of a few of my favorite baskets from artsymama's may basket swap. birds and blooms were a big theme. so many fabulously creative baskets from so many talented ladies. wish you all lived next door, i'd love to craft with you! all were wonderful...i'm anxiously awaiting mine from brieanne.

today is also a very special day, my son hunter's 20th birthday! not sure how that happened, he was tiny just last week, digging in the dirt and running through the neighborhood with his buddies! we're so proud of him, off at college, studying ethnobotany - yes, an earthy science guy, who's sweet, talented, and handsome. since we won't be celebrating with him tonight we had a cake sent and he woke to hear all of us singing happy birthday at 7 a.m. sweet, yes, singing talent, no! it's hard not being together for all the "special" days, we're missing him today, the first birthday apart. so i thought i'd share one of my favorite pictures of he and i, both with much longer hair! and a sprinkling of snowflakes.
