Evicted

It would seem I've been evicted.  From Thirtyville.  (as coined by the talented girlsavage)  Yes, today I have packed my bags and moved into Fortyville.  I've already had a look around the joint and it looks OK from here.  Bacon and nutella for breakfast, lunch with my husband (without kids!), and the promise of ice cream.

I took advantage of my birthday status this morning and worked a little more on a project I've had in the works.  I hope to have it finished soon so I can show you.


I also had a chance to work on more mossy brooches yesterday.  Some are already spoken for, but there will be a few in my shop early next week. 


(aloha!)

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.  I'll think of you while I'm eating my er...sundae.  :D

Happy birthday! I will be moving to Fortyville in a few days as well. Some days I feel as if I am still in Twentyville but I am looking forward to the move. I think. have a great day.

Happy Birthday

I live in Fiftyville, and frankly, I've enjoyed aging. Not the old knees or the extra pounds that have joined me as I age, but the way age clarifies priorities... My midlife crisis prompted me to open my Etsy shop and do what I love instead of what I should.

Happy Birthday and I hope you enjoy your sundae!

I'll be 38 in March and feel Fortyville getting closer and closer.

Have a wonderful day today!

Bonne Fete!...40 what a wonderful age says the 46 yr old - who by the way has children aged 4 & 6...40 hmmm that would explain why all the questioning of your life has been going on. Lisa 40 is the most magical wonderful time of your life. I can actually promise you that your world will only get better with every day - and my gawd woman look at how your creativity has been blossoming!

Happy Birthday!!!!! I loved Fortyville. Recently evicted, not too sure yet about Fiftyville, but I'll let you know. Thanks for all the smiles and inspiration!

Marilyn said...

Happy Birthday Lisa....that old saying that life starts at 40...is pretty much true. I'm a couple of 'villes ahead of you...can't believe that.... but it does get better and better....and those little mossy numbers are just.... deep sigh......fab!!

Scrapiana said...

Fortyville: stay a while amid its ancient charms. ;) But srsly, it's no bad place - I'm five years ahead of you. Why should we be ruled by arbitrary numbers anyway? Happy birthday, Lisa!

Happy belated birthday! Take it from someone who's already been through "40-ville", that it's all good:-)I'm now in 50-ville, and it's not bad either...All in the attitude...So, I see nothing but clear sailing ahead for you.

Love your mossy hearts...So cool.

Hau'oli la hanau! (happy birthday in Hawaiian). Hope your day was enjoyed. Wishing you many blessings on your birthday!

Nilla said...

Happy birthday! Good to hear that 40-ville isn't that bad. Not too many years left now. :)

ZenCrafter said...

Welcome to the neighborhood, youngun. I've been here four good years now, and I've settled in (in every way). Takes a while to get used to the place, but once you've accepted the changed landscape, it's not so bad. :)

Happy belated birthday!

Amanda Pedro said...

welcome to the club. It's not so bad once your here. It's the time leading up to it that was scary. but you wake up and it's just another day with so much more wisdom and insight! lol
Happy day.

Sandy Ang said...

A belated happy birthday. I hit 40 this year too and never felt better!
