Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

January tea

 If you couldn't come, you missed a good party.  Angel food cake with strawberries in orange syrup,  gingersnaps, plain shortbread, chocolate/hazlenut shortbread, sausage bites in phylo  crust,  tangerines, tea, coffee, and chocolate wine.

I got out the blue and white tablecloth and the blue and white china.  It's rather a surprise to me how much blue and white china I have.  And last Christmas, LG made me a set of blue and white napkins and napkin rings.  We loves them, we does!  Every napkin is a different print, and the napkin rings are knitted, felted, and adorned with a glorious selection of buttons - no two alike.  What fun!

The table looked quite pretty, and the party-goers were, as always a joy and a treat!   

 I got out the hats that I inherited from Mom.  Mom loved hats with feathers.

Hallie is too cute!

Barb is looking seriously regal
Merilee is rosy!  (Mom wore this hat to my high-school graduation.)
This isn't a good photo of Pat.  She looked so elegant and sophisticated in this stylish black number with the big white bow.  With a little black sleeveless dress, elbow length black gloves, and nice black pumps, she could give
audrey Hepburn a run for her money!

Other folks got photos as well.  Want to share?

    Hold on while I wipe the drool from my chin. boy, everything looks so tasty! I wish I could have been there but this work that had to be done because of the leak had to take priority. Sigh...darn.
