Happy Birthday

Well it's time to celebrate another Happy Birthday to me. I had such a great fun day with my local buddies . Karen who is a Tasha Tudor fan had lunch for me and some more of our friends at her charming wonderful house.

It was a Downton Abbey luncheon minus the head butler LOL We had a beautiful table setting all the china, silver and of course hot tea was served.

My daughter Terra, Karen, Bernideen Jo, Me and Gina was there and Karen's two large cats

We toured her wonderful house after lunch and looked in and under all her cabinets at all the fabulous china and dishes she has collected through the years. Also looked through several books about Tasha Tudor Karen has

Then of course here was presents for me !!! yeah Look at this adorable Tea Cozy Bernideen made me . You hardly see my Burleigh calico tea pot however it's there

of course lots presents

I got truffles for my Mackenzie Childs recipe box that I said I would use for candy or jewelry not recipes

I got grocery's  LOL yum

I got this Downton Abbey clip board Bernideen made and added my Louis Vuitton luggage to the Down Abbey scene . Matching pencil box or utensil box ?

love it

It was a great day 

I get to do it again at my daughter's house this Saturday , Thanks girls for this very nice day of eating and visiting with the best friends a gal could have
