Yes, in case you are interested, I turned 54 
ten days ago and enjoyed the day -  and it happened to be a Sunday this year- 
I was able to celebrate with family and friends,
I got lovely presents and soulwarming hugs and many congratualtions calls and mails!
Thank you to all - so nice you thought of me! 
It is  great to have birthday but I think  I had already  too many of this lovely celebrations yet.
In my soul I feel  no day older than just 18 - really!
But when I look into the mirror - it tells me something different!

  1. I don't think you look 54 Susi. Really, you have a youthful face. I know what you mean though because when we look at ourselves we think we should look be younger and we see all the little lines. :) And you never told us it was you birthday. Nice gifts! And I am loving your watercolors. New adventures for you in the art field. :) Have a fabulous Wednesday. Hugs-Erika

  2. Liebe Susi

  3. Liebe Susi,

    Viele liebe Grüße

  4. Liebe Susi
    auch von mir die noch nachträglich die herzlichsten
    Glückwünsche, vor allem Gesundheit.

  5. Oh Susi! These watercolours are fantastic! What lovely gifts from your friends too! You are as young as you feel - just don't go skateboarding!!! Hugs, Chrisx

  6. Nachträglich alles Liebe zum Geburtstag, liebe Susi! Viel Spaß mit all den schönen Geschenken! Deine Aquarelle sind wunderschön. Besonders die Kerzen haben es mir angetan.
    Viele liebe Grüße

  7. How wonderful for you! So much fun to be had. These watercolor panes are incredibly beautiful and inspiring! Happy Thanksgiving to you and hugs, Autumn

  8. Fabulous watercolous Susi, Glad to hear you had a lovely birthday and received lots of great gifts.
    Hugs, Avril xx

  9. Lovely water colours. Enjoy your presents!

  10. Hi Susi, happy birthday! you have some lovely friends, what gorgeous gifts you've received. We just have to try and keep ourselves as fit as possible and it's even more important as you get older. I've been going to the gym regularly for just over a year now as I know that at 63 if I am going to carry on skiing in the winter I must keep fit the rest of the year so I'm working on it. I can see that you enjoy walking your dogs which is a great way to keep fit too. Have a great and creative week, Angela xXx

  11. What delights Susi, *Happy Belated Birthday* but I know you had the most wonderful time. Your watercolours are magnificent from the delicate flowers to the vibrancy of those flickering candles, so heart warming and both pieces of comfort. Age is just a state of mind and I think you will be forever 18..
    Warm Hugs Tracey xx

  12. These are two beautiful water colour paintings.
    They are lovely gifts from your friends. As for age, as long as we stay young on the inside, the outside can take care of itself.

  13. Incredible art once again Susi, I especially love the candles. Such beautiful gifts too and a big belated birthday hug from me, at 54 you’re still young so no worries ;)

  26. Deine Aquarelle sind wunderschön! Besonders das mit den Kerzen gefällt mir sehr, durch die Verwendung von Tusche (?) bekommt es einen wunderbaren Hell-Dunkel-Kontrast und das Kerzenlicht leuchtet richtig!
