My party was all that I could have hoped for as I danced through the evening with feathers and 30’s silk chiffon, surrounded by friend old and new.  I have so much to integrate as I continue to visit with friends who came from out of town and gaze with wonder at completed projects in my home.  Having a goal was what I needed to catapult myself into a new decade.

I have no idea who took this photo, which I received from Camille the day after the party.  She has a ‘sparkle’ on her forehead, placed there by a friend who was sharing glitter as though it were love.  I have more to say and share, but for today I need stillness and reflection.  I feel light as a feather.

The SC is floating over to Patti’s Visible Monday HERE at Not Dead Yet Style, eager to join the weekly gathering of like minded and creative bloggers.  Thank you Patti, for providing the venue that brings us all together.


  1. You look unbelievably Hollywood-glamorous in your floaty gown, and swaying feathers in that gorgeous shade of blue, as you descend the staircase. The picture of you and Camille is beyond precious, saying everything.

    I look forward to hearing your reflections about such a momentous occasion. Happy Birthday, dearest friend. Love you so much.

  2. Judith, you look stunning. 1930s silk and feathers? Could anything be more glamorous?! I am imagining that you danced your way down the stairs, to be met for more elaborate choreography, Busby Berkeley style, by a troupe of dancing girls and top-hatted young men ready to carry you on their shoulders to your guests. Please tell me this is what happened!
    The photo of you and Camille is indeed glowing and glittering with love. Happy Birthday again, take your time to absorb and reflect, then I would love to hear your thoughts on your special night. xxxxx

  3. Your feathered cocktail hat is fabulous! (To see another woman wearing a feathered hat, check out my recent post at Just Verte Style.)

    I so wish I could wear hats, but they just don’t suit me. I don’t have the face for them. Sigh…


  4. You look breathtaking in that heavenly dress and feathers, a floating star of timeless beauty and grace. I’m so glad that your birthday was everything you’d wanted and more, and look forward to reading your reflections and more photographs (please!) of you in that incredible dress!

  5. Happy Birthday Judith – you look glamorous, radiant and beautiful! I trust you had a wonderful night full of the love of friends and family xx

  6. How lovely you looked on this special birthday. Thank you for sharing the happiness with us!

  7. Judith you are perfection! That dress is just to die for and you looked divine as usual!! Happy Birthday to you!

  8. Warmest wishes on your birthday, Judith. You are dreamy in this floaty chiffon wonder and wispy blue feather halo. The sparkling jewels… And Camille. What a wonderful celebration. I hope the after-glow last for days and days and days, all through this new year of life.

  9. I think Jean was right when she said you look Hollywood-glamorous in your floaty gown. The feathery hat is just the right touch, and such a beautiful color. It’s lovely to hear that you had such a successful party – you certainly look like the hostess with the mostess!

  10. You look like a movie star! You and Camille look absolutely stunning! I hope you had a wonderful time. xxx

  11. Hi Judith!

  12. I think Vix has it. You do look like a film star, from another era. I’m so happy you had a party … I don’t think one ever gets too old for a birthday celebration. Enjoy your quiet and let the love sink in. Here’s some more for you to absorb …
    Hugs, from Jan with wishes for continuing happiness long after the cake is gone!

  13. Judith, you look like an elegant, ageless queen in that beautiful gown and feathered cap! Congratulations again on reaching your wonderful birthday milestone. I look forward to hearing more about your celebration!
