Yes, she is certainly SWEET! And I see you in mom too. (you now, her then)...

Happy Birthday to you Suki!
I hope it is a fun one for you.
Make it so!!!!

You share a birthday with Elspeth! She blogged her birthday today as well.

Cindy said...

Happy birthday!

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier in the week and commenting on my painting. Of course, when I paint in the eyes, she'll have pupils, so they'll be less creepy! LOL! You are right -- my cold is my body's way of making me take notice. I do have a lot on my plate right now, and have not been taking proper care of myself. I'm trying to do better, though.

Hope you have a fabulous day today! As lynn said, "Make it so!" -- and hope your finger gets to feeling better!

Hi Cindy. Hope you start feeling better soon. Thanks for stopping by.

thanks Chook

Andrea, you convey such humour in the way you type words. Thank you so much for your kind wishes. I'm glad I know you too.

Elspeth, wasnt sure of the date as with all the time zones and so forth hard to tell what day folks are talking about sometimes. Happy Birthday, yesterday.

sukipoet said...

KIm thank you for your kind words. I know it will be a great day. Sun is shinning. Plans: get a facial. Kinda Yuppie isnt it. Buy some fresh fish and pastries for dinner. That's it.

You added another photo since I last looked. Cute, cute, cute.
And that table/chair was quite the thing. Lucky grandparents who got to have you then!!!

sukipoet said...

thanks Amanda.

Cris, yes, another birthday, another dollar. Is that right? Thanks. I hadnt thought of making it a painting but that's an idea. For a while I did a lot of mother and child paintings.

thanks Teri

Blue SKy Dreaming, enjoyed the e-card. Nice and sunny here today. A plus.

Lynn, yep, and I think as a result i was always my grandfather's favorite.

Karen said...

Happy Birthday!!!

Sounds like a good plan for the day--I've never had a facial, so you'll have to tell all about it. Hope you feel pampered!

Those pictures of you are terrific. You certainly were cute. I can see the wheels turning in those eyes!

CHEWY said...

Happy Birthday Sweetness! (smile)

marianne said...

Hi Suki
Happy Birthday!
Big hug and kisses to you! Hope you have had a wonderful day!!!!!!!!!!
Gefeliciteerd! Fijne verjaardag!
Love these drawing! And the photos!
You had that smart clever look already in your eyes then! Your mother looks very pretty also!
Hope you have a nice birthday with your family there!
Love >M<

sukipoet said...

Karen, wheels turning in the eyes. Yes, that's me all right. The wheels are always turning, even when I'm supposed to be asleep. Thanks.

thanks chewy. It is a pretty happy day.

Thanks soulbrush. The finger is much better. It had a good rest today. Love your silly poem. Guess that's a universal poem eh?

Marianne, I bought some decadent pastries at a posh bakery near where I got my facial so that will be my birthday cake.

To all, the facial was great. Hot towels on the face, two different masques, facial and neck massage. I dont really like a lot of oils and creams on my face, but I did get the moisturizer at the end. Could have skipped that part as skin feels greasy but all else was wonderful. A major luxury indulgence for sure.

fiorobbo said...

Happy Birthday!

Quiche said...

Wonderful photos and equally wonderful renderings! Happy fabulous birthday Suki! Mine is the 14th, and I'll be fabulously 40 (: Glad I stopped by, just so I could wish you a happy one on the day! Happy drawing days, wishing you many wonderful sketches, and infinite blessings (:

PS. Love the brilliant red autumn leaves!

Annie said...

Suki, happy, happy birthday!!!!
You were a doll baby and mom is a beauty :-). I hope you did something special today for yourself :-).

patti said...

A beautiful mother & child pic. Mary Cassat would have loved to paint the pair of you!

Happy birthday Suki!

Karen Mowrey said...

ahem...a poem

Roses are Red
Most bees are yellow
I like them blue
hope your bee day was swellow

Happy Birthday Girl!

your drawing is as sweet as honey!

Debbie in CA : ) said...

I popped on for just a peek, intending to return for a more leisurely stroll through your recent postings when I can slow down the whirl of life around here. What a surprise to find it is your Birthday! I didn't miss it! Hooray! I join the celebration and with you HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweet friend! I send you warm greetings and friendly e-HUGS from across the continent. Blessings to you!

p.s.
Adorable photo of baby you! : )

sukipoet said...

M. Heart, thanks for the b-day greetings. Had a good day.

thanks fiorobbo.

Quiche, and fellow Libran. Thanks for the birthday wishes and kind words. Hope you too have a fabulous birthday.

Annie, thank you. It was a lovely day weather wise, I had a facial (very yuppie eh?) which was lovely, and I bought some chocolate mousse at a deluctable bakery nearby and it was delicious.

sukipoet said...

Patti, thanks. I went thru a phase of doing lots of Mother and child paintings myself and I love Mary Cassatt who is mostly known for a very few works but who was quite varied and accomplished.

Karen, I just loooove that sweet little poem. Written just for me, thank you.

Debbie, thank you for the greetings and e-hugs. Big e-hugs to you too.

Cestandrea said...

Suki, I hadn't seen the first picture, absolutely delightful, so full of joy and curiosity, and the highchair and the flowers, the old wood and the light. A precious moment in time,
thanks for sharing this, too,
Andrea

sukipoet said...

Andrea I added this photo later, maybe that's why you missed it. It is probably my favorite photo of me as a child. With I were that perky now, even with a little wisp of hair tied in a bow.

Mim said...

HB to you! Gorgeous drawing of a beautiful baby!

sukipoet said...

Hi Mim, thanks
