part 3 - a celebration

The Adorable Dianne took many pictures of the Birthday Lunch, I am happy to say---things that I did not take, like the table.....
I love China.  And over many many years, I have collected quite a lot. I try to use all that I have in my "China Closet", but I know there are things I have neglected. I end up using the same plates, over and over. I think these plates are so very very pretty.....
And there I am---The Birthday Girl, about to sit down at the Lunch Table.....Dianne took quite a few pictures of me and I am so pleased she did.....
I look pretty good!  Well....make-up helps.....It's the first time I've had make-up on in more than a year......!
And below, a closer look at the T-Shirt I had made up for this occasion......
Well......that is somewhat of an over-statement.....But, all things considered, and make-up being in the equation.....I don't look too bad.....And, I do not dye my hair.
And there I am taking a picture of the really Beautiful Dense Dark Rich All Chocolate Cake.....
YUM!!!
It turned out that these Candles were the kind that wouldn't blow out.  I'm just glad there were only four of them.....lol!
Oh, and I only had one earring on because I couldn't get the other one into my ear.....It's been a long time since I've worn any earrings, too.....So, maybe the hole in my right ear closed up......
Then.....it was time to open presents......Even though I told everyone not to bring me anything.....These lovely ladies wanted to bring me something, anyway.....
Bridget, who wraps everything so very beautifully, gave me a very sweet metal Birdhouse....And Lee brought me a bottle of her favorite Chardonnay and a really Beautiful Butterfly Bottle Stopper.....
The flowers behind me in the picture above were sent to me by my dear dear old friend Charley Berliner....The arrangement was lovely, and the flowers smelled absolutely wonderful!
Dear Dear Seemah made me some very special Brownies.....These are Brownies she used to make all the time---back in the day...I was thrilled to once again see these very special little sublime goodies, and wasted no time shoving one in my mouth......
Mmmmmm, it was so very good!  And this, after a big meal and two rich desserts...(We had that wonderful Lemon Meringue Cake, too..)
So, there you have it. Another Birthday Celebrated with dear old friends.
And, for good measure.....Here below is one last silly little Video from that special afternoon, with 'The Brownie Lady'.....Seemah......
We did have fun!


More To Come........

The film clip was a real laugh! Thanks for that!

I'm not 100% certain about what you mean by "special" brownies made "back in the day." I'm not sure I want to know the truth.

Dear Naomi, you look great and very happy! Just amazing that you do not dye your hair! I dye mine since my forties and I wish I don't need to do it...

Love your T-shirt, it's very creative. I am so glad that Dianne took many pictures of you and of the Birthday Lunch too.
The table and these plates are very pretty indeed. The brownies made by Seemah looks delicious and they make my mouth water.
Last but not least, I enjoyed the video. Very funny!
Really you had a great Birthday Lunch for sure.
Many hugs!

You ladies really do have such fun and you really set a lovely table.
Looking forward to more---

Oops, forgot. It is my left ear that closes up. Frustrating. Every time I wear earrings, I have to re-pierce my ear. I am working on a solution and will post about it.

Naomi, you really do look great! How is it your hair has not turned gray? Wow! You and Ronald Reagan (can we believe him?). From the video I can you all are a bunch of actors, comedians at that!

Now that`s what I call a PARTY! Love the T-shirt, love the flowers, love your chin, love the way the table is set out and decorated. And you are still a lovely lady, Naomi!

I call that a banner day when you have two rich desserts AND a brownie! What a lovely party you had - love that china. The table was beautiful - a beautiful day.

How utterly fantastic that everything is so outstanding for friends that need nothing but your friendship to be there!.. I love your ladies that lunch! All of them! But especially the birthday girl!!

Wonderful tablewear. You certainly don't look 82!

Oh that video is too funny! You looked great too! I love your plates, and I think I've mentioned in the past how much I love those blue glasses. I would love to collect more dishes, but I have no place to put them. As it stands I think I have 6 full sets of dishes and 4 different sets of silverware. My drawers and cupboards are over run with table cloths and cloth napkins.

My Dear, you look FABULOUS! 82 is the new YOU!

Naomi, you look wonderful. Beautiful cheekbones. And your hair - I started going grey in my 20s. I love reading about your parties as they are always such fun. The caps are great, your tshirt is fabulous and true too. Van's flowers are always spectaculor, the table setting divine and the cakes are scrumptious. You are all blessed to have such long term friends. And yes, you can tell you are all born entertainers. Truly wonderful fun. Thanks as always for sharing your party with us all.

p.s. your shirt said it all, gorgeous lady!

You do look great for 82! And I can't believe you don't dye your hair! Blimey I'm so grey! You are very lucky. And, I hope this doesn't sound rude but you've lost a lot of weight too.

My mother had to have her ears re-pierced because she left it too long not wearing earrings and her holes closed up.

The table looked lovely too and the cake. It's so unusual. I love Brownies but my diet won't allow me to eat one at the moment!

You all know how to have fun! You do look so good – great complexion and lovely hair – if you did not show your age on your tee-shirt I don’t think people would be able to guess it. The video was so funny – I heard someone saying “nurse!” so wonderful to have good friends and good laughs.

Chardonnay, special Brownies? and that wicked cake. What more could a girl want? It would do me very nicely.
That deep blue looks great on you
and altogether I think you are looking better - which cheers me.

Belated Happy Birthday dear Naomi! You look fabulous as always!

Your birthday lunches are always a blast looking at the photos now and from your old birthday entries :)

It's nice to see you doing well and looking great!

I specifically popped by to wish you a belated Happy Birthday. I agree with your t-shirt and am happy to see you looking so well :-)

I know I have not been in blogland for a while but I think of you and I hope to come back to blogging soon with a new blog.

In the meantime I am happy to see you celebrating with good friends and having one of your wonderful lunches. Sending hugs.

You look fabulous! Gee, I'm sorry I missed this earlier on... and I think "don't blow out" candles are a little mean but a lot of fun!
