Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacqueline. I didn't think of it for today's post till the last minute...and then I couldn't resist it, especially since I don't wear dresses anymore. HA! smile

Wishing you a wonderful day full of surprises.
Would love to see you dressed up in the white polka dot dress with the red hat.
Have a great a day !!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elsabe. And LOL. A little too buxom for me, I'm afraid, but I do like the red hat. grin

Oh, what your vivid, quick eyes are discovering all - a funny shop presentation- a bit typically Dutch, too - Happy birthday, enjoy your lovely day, Ginnie, and I hope Astrid will come back a bit earlier than usually!
Ginnie Hart: We had a lot of fun in Amsterdam on Friday, Philine, meeting up with blogger friends. It made us want to go back and visit Utrecht, where we have so many great memories from our early days! Astrid has all kinds of wonderful things planned for dinner tonight. She is such a sweetheart! smile

It's your birthday and I can't be there
But I'll send you a special birthday wish and a little prayer
Have a happy birthday
I hope that all of your birthday wishes come true
May you have a great time today and find happiness in everything you do.

Not my words but my sentiments!

Are these table lights?
Ginnie Hart: Awww, and what a very sweet, special sentiment, Alan. Thank you. I don't think they are table lights. They were quite small.

My dogs gave my wife a jewelry stand like this for her last birthday. smile Not to fear, Ginnie dear, keep your dress on, I saw someone hurrying home on a scooter - I guess you will go somewhere then.

Van harte gefeliciteerd met je verjaardag. Je moet uitkijken, straks is dit al je zestigste.
Ginnie Hart: Ahhh, that's what they are. I knew those wire arms were for something, Louis. You just helped me figure it out. smile Thanks.

Happy Birthday darlin'!!!! which one is you? lol i love this shot, and i would have bought each one of those smile hope you have a great celebration of this special day, the one you were born on smile we're glad you are here!
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. You are such a sweetheart, Elaine. THANK YOU. Truth be known, I am no longer a dress sort of person, but I can appreciate a good one when I see it. smile
Hi Ginnie! Happy Birthday! Your photo is fabulous and it gets me to wonder if you sport any hats like these anymore. Sorry for being out of touch for so long... Becky and I just returned from a 3 and a half week road trip out West. Hope you have a great day :^)
Ginnie Hart: Welcome back after your vacation, Doug! And thanks for the birthday greetings. I have never been a hat person and haven't worn a dress in I can't remember how long. But I sure can appreciate a good look when I see one. smile Thanks.
Oh, my goodness! Happy Birthday! Your "girls" are perfect for a birthday celebration - a little frivolous, a little daring, a little devil-may care. Cute, too!

I hope your day was wonderful - like you, I love birthdays, and never have regretted a one.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Linda. smile I love whimsy like this, even if you wouldn't catch me dead in a dress or hat like any of these now. When I decided on this image for my birthday, I couldn't stop the giggles inside me. How telling, I thought. And yes, I have always loved my birthdays and haven't yet regretted a single one of them. smile

Happy Birthday Ginnie! Hope the day will bring all your wishes come true!
Love the ladies in the shop window! A great find and thank you for sharing.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Barbro. This was so fun for me to see and then to share!
Great capture. Those ones has much more personalities than one I found earlier over here and posted at Facebook.
Ginnie Hart: Don't you just love whimsy like this! smile Thanks, LCT.

Are those holders for gold and silver rings. Love them and I hope you had a marvelous day Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Frida, I think so...jewelry holders! So fun. And yes, it was a fun, quiet day at home. We had celebrated big-time a couple weeks earlier (long story).
I love looking at window displays; especially when they are as cute as this one.

Hope you enjoyed your birthday, Ginnie; sounds like the perfect way to celebrate. Eating Astrid's yummy spareribs and chilling out on the couch to watch Meryl Streep as Maggie Thatcher. Good stuff!
Ginnie Hart: You are so good, Beverly, at getting to the nitty-gritty of other comments/replies! Thank you. It was a great, quiet day...just what the doctor ordered on a working day for Astrid. We had celebrated "bigger" a couple weeks earlier. smile Thank you.
