The Party Favors...

Last week, Mary, DeAnne and I got together and made the party favors and name tags for the tea.

The outside of the favor read "The Perfect Blend" followed by the names of the happy couple and the wedding date.

The inside of the favor has two pockets, perfect for inserting tea bags.

And I was thrilled to find this tea to put inside.

If you'd like to make these favors, Catherine of Cee Cee's Creations has a tutorial here

Time for Tea...

A group of friends and I had a tea this afternoon for our dear friend Jane's daughter-in-law to be, Kasey.

We had tea and champagne punch.

Mary made salmon and dill sandwiches and olive and nut sandwiches. 

Joyce made cucumber sandwiches and egg salad sandwiches.

Maureen made Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti and Raspberry Shortbreads.

DeAnne brought French Macarons.

Sandra made a pretty tray of vegetables and dip.  The table was lovely.

Kasey and Stephen were showered with gifts.

Kasey is holding up the apron I made her as a shower gift.

More Socks...

I finished my Malabrigo socks.  I love knitting with Malabrigo!

I finished Mom's birthday socks.

I have the first sock of my 6th pair this year on my needles.  And now you know why my friends call me a serial knitter.

Happy Birthday Mom...

This wish for you Mother
is straight from the heart.
With more special meaning
than words can impart...
May your day hold pleasures
that your fondest of...
And remember each day
you're thought of with Love.

Happy Birthday

The Real Housewives of Late Night...

OK... it is shameful... my dirty little secret... but I from time to time watch a little of the Housewives series.  I know... I am embarrassed.

Have you seen this?  Jimmy Fallon is in town for the big SUPER BOWL and he recently did this sketch.  He is brilliant.

Take a look.  Excuse the ad in the beginning.

I laughed so hard I cried.
