Hello my friends!
Yes ... today is my birthday and I am now officially of RETIREMENT age!
How in the world did that happen?? LOL!
(BIRTHDAY BLOG CANDY COMING THIS WEEK!)
It's been a very BUSY week for me so we're keeping my birthday a bit low key (I need to catch my breath)! But hubby and I are headed out shortly for a nice dinner.
No cooking for me today! YEAH!!
Anyways, I have a few things I'd LOVE to share with you! As you know I made a quick (5 hr drive) trip to Indiana to Joan's Gardens on Thursday to visit with Joan and her designer Selma Stevenson. Selma is from the state of Washington so needless to say, doesn't get in town too often.
Bette Henson from Illinois [behind Joan] and I [behind Selma] met at a workshop at Joan's a few years ago and have continued to stay in touch ever since. We arranged once again to get to Joan's early so we had some extra one-on-one time before the other ladies arrived. How blessed am I to have met these lovely ladies!!!
And here's the entire group that was able to drive in to spend some fun time with Selma and pick her brain on how she continues to make those AWESOME paper flowers. She was kind enough to spend time with us sharing some of her helpful hints & techniques. She sure knows how to make it look easy!!
Something else on my agenda this week was the Annual Ladies Tea sponsored by the Little Beaver Historical Society over in Darlington, PA (my home town). My cousin Beverly is on the board and started this lovely event three years ago. Each year the theme is different and the fabulous array of food is unique and delicious!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you a fabulous week ahead!
