Birthday Party Tablescape

Forgot to show my table decorated with a fall theme. I was able to fit 10 ladies around it. I kept my rooster from Carolina Pottery, and candlesticks from Hobby Lobby in place and just changed out the candles. I added the pumpkins and sprays which I already had in my stash. What you didn't see was my handpainted sunflower goblets from Tuesday Morning, and red and yellow dishes since I served buffet style.

The silver tea service on the buffet was my mothers. She bought it at an auction in NC in 1956. I also used her sterling silver flatware. She would have been 101 today. She lived to be 95 and passed away in 2003. Happy Birthday, Mom.

Birthday Cake

Ta Da! And finally, the birthday cake.

Ready for lunch. Oh, and we had quiche and salad for lunch Helping a couple of ladies with their bookmarks. That's me in the middle.

Birthday Party

September 23rd was my birthday, so I decided to throw myself a party - well somebody had to do it! After all, it was a pretty big one, so may as well embrace it. I wanted to make it special for my friends, so made most of the favors, bingo prizes and the decorated bags. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

God Bless America

I wanted to share this photo with you. Our next door neighbor's son returned home from Iraq last week and his parents made this impressive banner to welcome him home.

I'm back..................

I've been away from Blogland so long I almost forgot how to post. Had a busy summer and got lazy about keeping up my blog, not that anyone is reading it yet! LOL
My friend from AZ visited me the end of July and this was a quilt displayed at the Knoxville Quilt Show. It's made entirely out of yoyos. Wonder who he is????????
Then my husband had two back surgeries within a week. After being away from home for three weeks he is doing a lot better and trying to get back to normal. His three brothers came to visit, two from PA and the other from Ohio.
Now that fall is almost here I'm getting busy for my craft shows. Will show you some of my new items soon. Hugs, Karen
