Thank you for all the cards, greetings, comments... for everything.
I almost don't mind being a year older!
Thank you for making this birthday extra-special.

This card was hand drawn by Cindy of Dusty Rose Designs.
If you look, you can pick out each one of my cats in this great sketch.

These are from Cindy's handmade items at Dusty Rose.
My very favorite design and colors,
pale aqua glaze and white porcelain.
I got large and small urchin bowls and a small "alien" pot.
The adorable spoons are both a white coral and shell design.
(The quarter is shown for perspective)

Zoolatry's human, Ann, sent me a set of fantastic cards.
The first shows beautiful Missy Blue Eyes.

The second shows the two tortie girls.

Then, the boys!

And last, the whole Sherwood Bunch, all together.
Aren't those great!

Ann also made the birthday graphic for my blog yesterday,
for the other blogs, and the sea shell graphic above.
I'm still dazed and dazzled by all the attention.
To think, I actually thought no one would notice my birthday.

Thanks so much, everyone. ~ML

Oh our mom is so bad - she had made a note to come by and to make a post even though we were offline (just to make a special trip) and she forgot to do any of it! It sounds like you had a very special day but we still want to wish you a very happy belated birtday (or is that a belated happy birthday - whatever)! We are glad you had such a good day!!
