Birthday Event - Part 1, Everywhere Red

Is this the most gorgeous shopping bag you have ever seen? Not only it is my absolute favorite color - it is also with Asian images - Fabulous!!! This was my gift from Frances. Can you guess? Last week was my birthday and celebrating it was suppose to be a low key event. My friends were not going to let me off the hook so easily. They surprised me with some great SURPRISES last week...........so there will be a few blog parts to share their wonderful gifts............I just love this bamboo handle, too along with the red tissue paper.

This On-the-go Tote was inside - of course, in my favorite colors red/black. I know Frances searched very hard for this tote since it appears this color is no longer readily available. I just love it. Note a key chain, Mouse ears and a teeny tiny Pooh (my favorite Disney Character) is on the handle top. LOVE the drawer at the tote bottom. This tote is 18" x 8" x 8" and best of all, it comes with a carousel spinner base.............cool, eh? I can't wait to fill it up.

Here is a side view:

There was also a card from Frances..............Look at this!!!!


No - it's not a card............it's a purse album of the fun and memorable times we spent together............this is so way cool!!!

Here's the top view:

Back view:

Frances also brought favor mementos for all the guest: love this cherry blossom branch on a embossed background. Inside note book is from the local craft store.
MORE: she even had enough energy to make jelly belly tube treats for everyone. Isn't this just wonderful?

There is a hint of glitter on the scallop circle: love this red/black theme...............
Gee.....this is only Part 1.....aw shucks, Frances doesn't have a blog.....more to come so stay tuned this week for more gift shares...............
