My birthday is this week.
I don't really like my birthday much.
I haven't in a long time.
Not that I care about getting older because, really, I don't. (at least not yet)
I feel young and I know that if this were the Middle Ages, I'd be lucky to have made it this far.
So, even though it is weird to be looking at 35, and it does sound mature, I'm OK with it.
I'll be fine at 35.
What am I talking about? I'll be awesome at 35!
It's not the number, it's just the birthday.
Every year I think I'll throw a party or do something fun and different for my bday.
But I am often beat (4 out of the last 7 birthdays I have had a newborn) or everyone is sick, or something like that.
So this year I decided to do something that required minimal effort.
I am sharing a bunch of my favorite things with you--my birthday gift guide.
You'll be sure to find things you like, for yourself or others.
I will share something different each day for the week.
Today's offerings: ART.
If birthday wishes came true, I'd wish for the ability to paint and draw.
Until then, I'll just admire the work of people who can.
Like this poster.
You can see the poster here.
And the whole collection here.
They have amazing stuff.
Next up, this poster from Land of Nod.
Oh how I love this poster.
I have for ages.
Perfect for a little boy's room.
Or a master bedroom because I think the sentiment is very sweet and romantic.
I would actually like any from this collection because I love this artist's work.
Then there's this map.
I looove maps.
This is one of the best I've seen.
If you can't actually get on a plane and go, you can at least look at the world and dream of going, right?
Last up are these birds.
Aren't they beautiful?
They are made of porcelain and hang right on the wall.
I can picture them flying across a wall in my house.
That's all I have for day one.
Come on back tomorrow for another installment of Greta's Birthday Gift Guide.
