What Have I Been up To?

Little bit of everything it feels like. I did manage to send a box of "goodies" to Missouri. These pieces will be for sale in Hermann-at The Gold Rhino antique store. These pictures show them in their almost finished state.
We celebrated Addison's 3rd birthday this week end. Patrick took these pictures for me-good job Pat~

Last wkend i met Mary and Donna at the Cattle Barn in ft worth and looked around for bargains. I came home with all these keys for a good deal~now to come up with some jewelry or art ideas to put them to use!

And finally, still trying to find Maverick a home! This lovable guy needs a forever home! He's now housetrained too~and very affectionate. Loves trips to the dog park~

The Alice in Wonderland Book Project

Our books are now done and sunday was the tea to celebrate the ending~to see the finished books, crowns and ATC's. Of course there was food and drink as Mary had tea catered for us! What a nice touch! This is Mary-our hostess, in her crown. We were all given a base to design our own crown.
Below is the table-set and ready to go~

Here is the group, anne, april, donna j, melody and donna g
and mary is in the picture above!

Here is the food:sandwiches, scones, clotted cream, strawberries dipped in white/milk chocolate, lemon tarts, brownie bites...and the list goes on-all served with hot tea and ice water. It was delicious!

Here is a picture of my crown and the other 3 that were there: Me, April, Donna and Mary.

I came with the white gloves ready to attend the party in style. Needless to say, the gloves came
off-they really aren't conducive to eating when you aren't used to them-and i haven't worn any since i was about 5.
Finally a sampling of the artwork done in the books-each book was a different size so each page is uniquely done to fit each book.
