I have always been a stay at home maid, cook, doctor, babysitter, taxi, wife, mother, and grandmother. I enjoy crafting. My interests include primitives, vintage and colonial styles. I love decorating my home. I enjoy traveling with my hubby and friends, reading, and trying different recipes. I am a Christian and enjoy activities within my church. I hope you enjoy reading about my daily adventures in crafting, shopping, and enjoying life thru the eyes of my darling grand daughter.

Let's Have a Garden Party

It is so good to be back at home and ready to craft again after a wonderful few days away to celebrate our anniversary.  I was so anxious to visit your blogs I did not take the time to thank each and everyone of you personally, but a big thank you to all who sent congrat. and well wishes our way.  You are so sweet.
We had a wonderful trip and will talk about that in another post but today these ladies are waiting patiently and want me to invite you over for a little fun and relaxation for a garden party.  Yes, it's hot outside but they got all dressed up in their Sunday best just for all of you.  So come on over and we will sip our iced tea and lemonade and catch up on things.
Let me introduce you to Miss Nellie.  She is the one who likes to plan and organize our little garden parties.  Now, I won't go as far as saying she is on the "bossy" side, but she sure likes to get things done her way.
This is Miss Scarlet.  She is such a sweet and kind lady.  But don't let looks decieve you.  She loves to gossip.  She and I get along really well.  Being the southern gal I am, I love hearing about all the ladies in our neighborhood.  Miss Scarlet knows a little about everyone.  She will sit next to me at the party. (giggle) 
Miss Inez is our fashion queen.  She just loves dressing up pretty and getting together with us girls, that is when it doesn't interfere with a "shopping trip". She loves to alter her clothing also.  See the belt loop she left hanging on her dress?  She must have been running late from a trip into town and forgot to cut it off.  We will whisper and tell her so as not to make her blush.
And I guess the most perfect of the bunch of ladies is Miss Martha.  She is so quiet and doesn't like to have attention drawn to her at all.  I had to beg for a photo.  She is the most incrediable cook you would ever want to meet.  She loves bringing her little tea sandwiches and scones to all our parties and her little cute desserts are to die for.  Now you see why all us girls just love her to pieces?

Well I hope you have enjoyed meeting all my friends that will be at the garden party.  Don't you just want to come on over and
 I am sure you would find something in common with them and we will sit and chat for hours.  Just let us know so Miss Martha will be sure to have food for everyone.

So in closing for tonight , one last glimpse of all the girls waiting to welcome you to the party. 

Had a great visit with you all and until you arrive , be careful and have a safe trip here.  Until we talk at the party..........
