And the Winner Is...

Bonnie from Original Art Studio is the winner of my Birthday Challenge give away! She has selected an 8x10 of Columbine in Blue as her prize. Congratulations Bonnie!

The answer to my age is 58. The clues for the Birthday Challenge were the date on the right side of the photo, "56", and the five candles on my cake. It was a bit tricky and congratulations to Bonnie and those of you who figured it out!!

I loved reading all the memories in the comments! It was so fun remembering with you. You made me smile, laugh and giggle and I will save them forever. Here are a few I'd like to share:

button candy
Mystery Date game
Walking Dolls (they walked when you moved their arms)
color plastic sheets to put over a b/w tv screen creating instant "color" tv
Plunk your magic twanger, Froggie - Buster Brown show
Lassie, The Mickey Mouse Club, or American Bandstand
wearing a "skort"
8mm home movies

Thank you all for making my birthday full of fun! I hope you will forgive me if I do not do a Friday Favorites this week. I'm taking a couple days off! Cheers!
