Flooding Susie’s Inbox

December 10, 2009

Believe it or not, I’m walkin’ on air.

I just remembered something! Last week, on the 2nd and 3rd of December, it was Susie and Mama’s birthdays! What a terrible sister/daughter to not have recognized them on my extremely wide-read blog!

For Susie’s birthday, I found an adorable Nine West orange leather bag and Nine West alligator belt.  Being the bargain hunter that I am, I scored both gifts at Marshall’s. I’m about 99% sure there will be a Marshall’s/TJ Maxx/Home Goods in Heaven. Look it up, I think it’s in Revelations.

The Boston Satchel fit the bill for Susie.  She wanted a brightly-colored, easy-to-wear bag that wouldn’t slip off her shoulder.  You can find one like it here. (But you’ll pay less at Marshall’s)

For Mama, I decided to go less practical and more sentimental.  Since she’s an elementary school Media Specialist (that’s a librarian to you library lay people), I ordered her favorite childhood book on Amazon and a vintage copy of a Margaret Wise Brown and Crockett Johnson book. (If you are interested, this Etsy seller was absolutely fabulous!)

To accompany her sweet books, I made a few bookplates.  The first set had Harold and His Purple Crayon featured.

The second set featured another curious and sometimes mischevious little creature… Tater!

Mama LOVED them! I presented them to her over supper at Bonefish on her birthday.  We celebrated Susie’s birthday the day after Thanksgiving (because she had to get back to school) at Rhinehart’s.  If you’re in the Augusta area, you MUST go to Rhinehart’s at least once.  It’s not much to look at but it’s probably my favorite restaurant.

In other news, I got my cast off on Tuesday and I’m now the proud owner of an AirCast.  I’m supposed to be wearing this cast at all times (with the exception of bathing) and walking with crutches for about a week and a half.  I’ll then start walking with no help from the crutches until January 5. I’m a little gunshy right now with putting my foot down.  I’m afraid it’s going to hurt so I haven’t been walking around too much.

Be jealous of my” Storm Trooper goes skiing look.”

At least it gives me less of a cankle than Uggs would.
