Last week was a fun party week!
It started with our annual Atlanta bloggers luncheon. Sue of Rue Mouffetard was our amazing hostess. Her home was decorated to the nine's!
Love her tree
Some of her nutcracker collection
The tables were decorated in such a fun way!
I love how she used a quilt as the table cloth
Each place setting had a sweet journal and a towel sitting on a plate. Now Sue has a great collection of state souvenir plates. We had to find our birth state to find our place at the table (such a cute idea).
This was Joyce's place. NYC!
My Texas plate! We also got to take home our plate!
Such a clever place card!
Of course no get together is complete without food!
Sue cooked the lunch
and the rest of us brought something to share!
Our hostess SUE!!
After appetizers we exchanged gifts!
So many cute things were received by all!
These are my fun gifts!
One of the guests and a neighbor of Sue's is an artist and she gave each of us a tile with one of her artworks on it.
I love it! Her name is Maureen Kerstein and she is listed in the Artful Home catalog and on line here.
I took bags of 'junk' to share! I was downsizing some things (all of it good mind you) and thought instead of buying some little something for everyone I could give them a good bag of stuff. So I did.
They loved it!
Each bag was different and random and so they just picked one and opened it. So much fun!
Surprise I said! Now we may make this a new tradition with everyone bringing a bag of good stuff and doing a fun gift game!
We then had some fun playing BINGO with prizes!
Ladies can get quite cutthroat I might add! It was all in good fun and I even won one game!
Now on to the main course!
Great food, great friends!
I brought a few of these home! So good!
I made Tiger fudge!
I love Sue's little Red VW cookie jar!
Thank you Sue for such a fun time!
Many of you follow me on FB or Instagram and know that yesterday I had a big scare with Charlie Kitty. He had a seizure and I thought this was it. I rushed him to the Vet and she examined him and thought he was doing OK. We decided to give him fluids and some meds and see how he did. Well he is back to his old self today. I appreciate all the prayers and good thoughts for Charlie. At 17 I know we don't a lot of time left together, but looks like he isn't quite ready to cross the rainbow bridge.
Wishing you JOY,
