I Went to a Garden Party

So a couple of weeks ago, I had an opportunity to go to a Garden Party hosted by Joanne, a member of my Art Group.  I'm trying to down size my craft selection at the antique mall, so I decided to put together some art kits to share as favors.  It was great, it meant emptying out about 8 jars of crafties, like keys, buckles, drink parasols, assorted cardboard letters from games, some majong tiles, and the like.

Joanne always sets a beautiful table … in fact all the ladies in this group are naturals at entertaining.  I loved that she used my favors in the place

I also loved her patriotic rag swags.  In fact I made one for my garden house … I can't wait to be done with it and be ready for a reveal of its make over.  It was definitely time.

Here are Cindy, Jann and Ann …
and Margo, Kimi, Trina and Joanne … somehow I missed Shirley … but she is in the group shots below.

How fun is Joanne's sweet child's cupboard … yep, I had to exercise restraint in the coveting department.

Joanne's yard is so full of whimsical fun, I wish the light would have allowed me to share the fun.
Here we are; Kimi, Cindy, Jann, Joanne, Ann, Shirley, Trina, Margo and me.

 Its been a cool summer here, and by the end of the evening a few of us where snuggling up.
After we brought in some of the accoutrements, I decided to take a better shot of Joanne's crafted candlesticks. We all loved them and are now collecting small glass objects … that's right, it never ends.

Thanks Joanne for the wonderful Mid-Summer's Night Dream of an evening.  Everything was perfect!!

  6. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
