A nice day!

Spring Bouquet on our front door.

We've had a beautiful day in Florida today, perfect weather, not too hot, not too cool. I had a busy weekend, I was getting ready to be in a craft show today, but wasn't a craft show to sell things. I'm in a neighborhood women's club, and every April they have a craft show, I guess it could be called a show and tell, as it is done to help the members get to know each other better. The crafts I shared was my scrapbooks (photo albums, I don't like calling them "scraps!") I also shared some of my decorative paintings.

I wasn't real keen on joining this women's club, but let a friend talk me into joining. I have to tell you what has happened, next month the club is having a tea party instead of the usual meeting. It is the last meeting until September. I learned today that it is to be a dress-up affair, with a fancy hat contest! I'm going to wear my black dress that I featured last week on my blog! I have a large brim black hat I will decorate to wear. We are also to bring a favorite china tea cup to drink our tea in! But the best part is this - - it's being held on my birthday!!

Thank you for your interest, please leave a comment! And please do return soon!

I love the arrangement on your door. Glad you can celebrate your birthday with a special tea. And your gorgeous dress and wonderful hat. Be sure to let us see which teacup you choose. And a picture of you at the event would be fun. Have a great day. Glad it's warm and beautiful there - it's C-O-L-D here! ~Adrienne~

Hi, I'm a Georgia neighbor from just over the Florida line. I spent last weekend in St. Augustine, brought an elderly aunt there for her first visit to our nation's oldest city.

Well now you can get all dressed up AND have somewhere to go on a happy occasion to boot. How cool is that?! :D

sounds like a lot of fun and so versatle. I have found that in all of my moves that finding the right group of women to meet with is key. We women just need other women. I can't wait to see your photos of the Tea party.

Sounds like so much fun! I'm glad you'll get to wear your pretty dress. (Take pictures)
I love spring bouquets on front doors. I have one in a rustic basket. Maybe I'll post it someday
