You remember our get together from the last post…..
Well after a wonderful meal that Evi lovingly prepared for us out came the presents.
Shoot, I was going to show you the delicious food …..
but we were all so wrapped up in the excitement we just started eating.
I know, how could I?
but I did.
Trust me it was both beautiful and scrumptious.
I think I gained 5 lbs!
We toasted to our friendship just as the first presents were being unwrapped.
Pretty presentation don’t you think?
Laura loved her present so much she decided to wear it.
Wave to the folks!! She’s cute even with a grain sack over her head.
I think we’d had a lot of wine by then : )
You can go to Laura’s post HERE and view more photos.
We received surprise gifts from our friend Mary Pernula. You should have heard us all squealing.
You mean that sweet girl sent us all a gift knowing we were all getting together?
What a doll!
She wrote the nicest note that Paula read us. I wish I had photographed it.
I was so touched I almost cried.
got a little misty eyed
Mary made us all these adorable altered vintage bottle decorations….
different for each one of us.
This is one is mine!!!
I have it hanging in the living room by the window.
Every year now I will be able to enjoy it and think of you Mary.
I might turn the paper around and keep it up all year.
Thank you so much Mary!!! I love it.
When I was home the next day I went in the living room and played with my new gifts.
I will treasure these forever!
These lovely gifts are the icing on the cake of what is
most important of all ....our friendship.
I know you'd all agree.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
Thank you for stopping by.
