The end of a perfect birthday.....

Thanks to all of you who shared this day with me, through cards, e-cards, best wishes and even dropping by in the last day or so. This card shows peaceful slumber with fairies bringing sweet dreams. I can hardly wait to fall into my cozy bed, sleep for hours, and then get up Emily Dickinson wrote, "Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door*" [..just not too early please!]

The illustration is by artist Cicely Mary Barker and was sent to me by my friend Cheryl.

Not knowing when the Dawn will come,I open every Door,
Or has it Feathers, like a Bird,
Or Billows, like a Shore — Emily Dickinson

Happy Birthday, Lila!~

I love this CMB painting. I had not seen it before. I don't know if I've ever seen a piece of hers that had a human in it!
