Hi everyone! Have you had a busy day? So many of you are doing Spring cleaning the bug bit me today too. My bedroom is finished and nearly all the kitchen and now I'm taking a well deserved break. Earlier this week was our Johnson Girl's get together (this is my name for our group...all friends from high school). We met for lunch at a beautiful new restaurant called Scott's Seafood On The River. You have a wonderful view of the river and can enjoy all the action on the river as you dine. The food is absolutely delish and the service is outstanding. Here we are.......look how we've grown. Originally there were three of us and then by word of mouth we re-connected with more of our former classmates. Let me introduce you... Starting on the left and going around the table is Jeannie, Janet, Judy, Janice, Ann, Marcia, Me, and Susan. One friend Sharon is missing today. You can click on any of the pictures to see better. The waiter had just served our lunch and we were ooooing and aaaahing over how yummy everything looked. It was great seeing everyone and hearing their latest news.
Look what sweet Jeannie brought for me. Three of the most darling hats that had been her mom's. This is so precious, the palest of pink and don't you just love the bow?
This one is lovely with leaves and flowers and can you see the beautiful green veil? I love hats with veils...I think they make you appear very mysterious.
This one is so light and airy...a purple veil and velveteen ribbon. Simple but charming. We're having a tea party in May and I know we'll be wearing these darlings. Thank you Jeanie...these are treasure and I love them.
Here is a surprise I also wanted to share. This is from my friend Priscilla in England. Look at the Easter treats! Isn't that the cutest towel ...my favorite color and how cute of a design Time for Tea, lovely mint tea, delicious candy eggs (I opened right away), hot chocolate drink mixes, Outrageous Orange was so yummy, and look at the darling whisk. I used it Easter morning to whisk up eggs for french toast. When I was using it I thought of Priscilla, and her mum and dad and wondered what they were doing as I was fixing breakfast. Do you ever do that? Look at a picture or a gift someone has given you...and think of them, I do it all the time.
Little things just mean so much. Who would have thought in just eight short months I would have met so many wonderful friends blogging. I do think of you as friends and our blogs are like a telephone connection to each other. I have more fun visiting each of you. Well I'd better go now...have a happy weekend and I'll be chatting with you soon. Hugs, Linda
