Doling Out the Presents

Because I lack anything noteworthy to say, I'll show you some of my birthday presents. Lucky you! I don't have pictures of all of them yet, so we'll do this a few at a time. A map of Savannah, suitable for framing (which will eventually happen) from Turn of the Century seller on etsy. I saw this same print at my niece's place (in Savannah, of course) and I had to have one. Luckily someone was paying attention.
This next item is a Mason Bee House. Kinda like a condo for bees. The Mason bees take up residence in the condo and pollinate the hell out of your garden. Unless it's a vacation condo, then I'm in trouble. I can't remember where my sister bought it, but if she reads this, maybe she'll enlighten us.Next we have a gorgeous blue (purple?) hydrangea from my in-laws. They had it delivered to my office at work. It's so cool to get flowers at work. This bad boy will eventually make it outside to become a permanent resident of the yard, where everyone will be able to enjoy it.
I also got this: which has already been returned. Apparently I'm a bike snob. One ride and two collapsed lungs later, I decided I was far better suited to this: Unfortunately there's a little problem with the $350 difference. Like I don't have it. That's a problem.
More presents to show off soon. I am so loved. sigh.

OOOH, I get to be the first to comment today! Nice presents; nice going. Too bad you had to spend your birthday at work, but we were all glad to see you.

The be house was also from Etsy. Oh, and you'll be getting a package in the mail today or tomorrow. Not a birthday gift, but who dopesn't like surprizes?
