Spiced Mug Mat

Thank you all for the
birthday wishes.
I had a great time with
mother's day and my birthday
being only a day apart
this year.
Got lots of goodies.
Nel brought this back
from her trip.
Now, I'll always have something
from Boston.
Loved this card from Nel
I saw this candle
while out shopping one day
at World Market.
Jess went back later and
bought it for me.
Have you ever had something
that smelled like your
This candle smells like
something from my childhood,
but can't figure out what,
it's so pretty.
My son took my car in
to get it cleaned and detailed.
I thought it was a thoughtful gift.
My church gave a carnation
to every mother
after mass, wasn't that sweet?
The carnation is my
second favorite flower -
love the scent,
and they are long lasting.
Jess gave me this candy dish
filled with Sees.  : )
Have you ever heard of a
spiced mug mat?
My best friend moved back here,
and we had lunch yesterday.
This was her gift.
You're supposed to put a
hot cup of tea or coffee on it,
and the spice scent fills the room.
I put it in my kitchen.

I even got myself something
when I was shopping
with the girls.
Isn't this camera necklace cute?
(Charming Charlie)

So many special gifts.
I have to say that my kids
spoiled me the
last couple of days.
Don't ya just love birthdays?  ; )

Someone said: I don't buy diamonds; I birth them (meaning her children). Your daughters and son are sure diamonds: kind, thoughtful, generous. Lucky mother, lucky children!

Daughters are wonderful, aren't they!

Such special gifts from your children. I know exactly what you mean with the fragrance triggering a memory but you can't pinpoint it. Some tastes do that too. Carnations are so special to me, always remind me of my dad. And THAT CAMERA necklace, LOVE!
Thank you for sharing with us. I'm glad your day was special, dear friend. Many birthday blessings again.

Happy belated birthday. I love your special gifts. A neighbor gave us mug mats at Christmas and we love using them. When not in use, I keep mine in the drawer with dish towels to make them smell sweet.
You are very blessed to have three thoughtful children.

Beautiful gifts, Sheri. Wishing you a Happy Belated Birthday and it looks like a lot of your wishes came true.

Love all your presents and the place mat that smell sound wonderful Many years ago i had a pot holder that had spice in it. Mmmmmmm, wonder what happen to it.

So glad that your Mothers Day was wonderful too.

I loved all of your gifts. I had not heard of the spiced mug mat. What a novel idea. Enjoy all your new pretties.


Looks like you got some sweet and charming gifts for Mother's Day and your birthday. ENJOY!. My favorite is the spice mat.

Well, I think you deserve to be spoiled, Sheri! So many sweet and thoughtful gifts. Love the tea cup and pretty candy dish. The necklace is adorable and how nice to have your car detailed, too. I know what you mean about nostalgic scents from childhood. Sometimes its a perfume that somebody wore, or a certain plant after the rain in a special place. The scent of balsam always does it for me......I once lived in a pine forest. Sending hugs your way. xo Karen

Oh Sheri, that Boston tea cup!!!!!!!!!! The camera necklace, just perfect for you (and me.....) and the love. We all could benefit from that gift from time to time!

Wishing you great memories and new ones to come as we enter into the magical MONTHS OF SUMMER!

Dear Sheri...I am so happy you had a special day! Lovely gifties added to the occasion. I have heard of spiced mug mats and remember having some with gingerbread fragrance around Christmas time. That's a pretty teacup, too! Such fun. You deserve the best! Hugs. Susan
