While I wait here at Paneras...using their internet...
for my sister and brother in law to pick me up....
...I thought I would show you some photos of the yummy gifts
that were exchanged last week at Evi's luncheon.
(notice I didn't say "share"....can't, because they have all disappeared by now!")
Anyway, Debbie filled silver paint cans with wonderful treats
including my all time favorites..her delicious meringue mushrooms.
(I didn't even share these with Mr. Flea!)
Carole made these awesome lemon marshmallows....
She also gave each of us a beautiful green fern
which I am hoping to keep alive...
...and Evi gifted us with a beautifully decorated box
full of her homemade cookies and, well...so much more.
(sorry no photos of those treasures until I return home).
Deanna gave me some fabulous vintage glass bottles with stoppers.
Photos taken with my iPhone...
Paula...oh dear Paula...
...she presented me with a hand stamped and decorated box
full of the most amazing vintage rubber stamps!
We spied them together in Essex while treasure hunting
back in November...
...and she secretly returned later to buy them for me for Christmas.
But, most of all...
I love the friendships that we share...
I love how we are all able to pick up right where we left off
and not skip a beat even though it may be months
since we last saw each other.
Many, many thanks to Evi for hosting us all last week.
And many thanks to all my friends here
for all your warm and encouraging comments.
And a special thanks to our sweetest friend
Mags from The French Bear...
...she sent a gift along to Evi to give to me at the party.
Such a lovely surprise!
Lynn and I have been packing her home up like crazy.
We hope to take a few hours off tomorrow afternoon
to check out an antique mall in the area. :)
That should be fun!
Until the next time I have internet access....take care! :)
