Wishful Thinking...and Some Birthday Fun

Its my birthday and I'll collage if I want to...

Hi my name is Melissa and I am a Polyvore-aholic. If you haven't been to the Polyvore website or don't know what I'm talking about...save yourself the trouble! Don't even bother looking! You will become another addicted statistic... like myself. ;) I might as well make some good come out of my habit, right? I will share my collages... remember my other "bad habit"...assigning themes to everything? haha... yeah, no escaping that either today. ;)


No surprise here... there is red and gingham and goodness all over the place. I incorporated a few "wish list" items... a red Kitchenaid (who doesn't what that?! And if you already have one...LUCKY!), a Pee Wee Herman bike (don't judge me ;) haha), a daisy bouquet and, of course, a donut!

I love all things Texas and all things western. You probably couldn't tell from my last tablescape, right? ;) I am kind of losing my mind for gingham shirt dresses. How cute would one be with a pair of boots? And red ranunculus? Melt my heart. And goodness me, I lose my marbles for turquoise jewelery. I will take a horse, too, please. ;)

Like I said in my I Love Summer Post... Cath Kidston has yet to design something that I don't like... I have my eye on her floral print swimsuit. How feminine is that? And goodness gracious, do you see that umbrella?? Oh...I need a beach day soon! Just a day to relax with some magazines and a book...listening to the ocean and the sea gulls...ahhhh. Soon enough I tell you, soon enough. ;)
I hope y'all are having a terrific Thursday...I'm hoping to convince hubby to take me to see Up tonight! Wish me luck! :)

Happy Birthday Melissa! On my way to the hospital (28 years ago) to deliver my Mimi! Arrived at the hospital 41 minutes before you were born @ 7:11p.m. on June 4th. Just the nurse and myself, no doctor needed! We did just fine.
Dad even missed your birth rushing back to the car because he forgot the camera...
I love you and wish you were here to celebrate! Love you, Mom

Hi, Melissa! Happy Birthday to you, love your collages. I use Polyvore for my Inspiration boards. Love what you did with yours. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy birthday!!! I love everything on your collages. I have not gone to Polyvore & I probably won't (taking your advice as I know I would become addicted too). I love, love, love the umbrella.

Happy Birthday Melissa!
And many more....:)

I have tried and tried to leave you comments this past week on your TT and blogger would not let me!!! :(

I had added myself as a follower and then removed my link thinking that may be the problem but to no avail. Please accept my apologies if I don't follow your blog right now until blogger works out it's kinks. I love your fun and vibrant blog and want to very much! I will as soon as it works. If you want to follow mine you are welcome to. I understand there are so many other blogs to see though if you don't.

Thank you very much for your kind words on our home. I can't tell you how much I appreciate them being so far away from family I need opinions and advice. I know you understand the military way of life. Sigh...:)

Have a fantastic day today my friend!
~Enjoy. ~Melissa :)

Now let me see if this comment will post....Hmmm...:)
