A FINISH & BIRTHDAY LUNCH & GIVEAWAY




Here is a finish that I did last week. I forgot about posting it with all the yard work going on. It is the Carriage House Samplings - Phoebe Brown. I painted the little old wooden frame I had and she fit just right.


I went and met with the girls today for Birthdays lunch. There are 3 of us that still hang together from high school. There was a group of us girls, about 7 that were real close.. Well only me, Diana, and Tammy are still close. I guess that happens a lot as you get older. We have children about the same age. Also I guess you change... Three of the old high school group waited till their late 30's to have children, so we have nothing in common with them now.. Us being 46....Diana had a Birthday Friday. My Birthday is tomorrow, so we celebrated at the local Mexican place. Tammy's Birthday is in Sept. We call her the baby of the bunch!!! We had a great time. I went by my old workplace today to see my friend Wendy. She is still working there. Had a great time visiting with her. She is going to start meeting us for lunch once a month. I need to get out more. We gossip of course... Found out all kinds of stuff about our old school buddies. We also cry .. Tammy lives in Tuscaloosa, she lost 1/2 her house.. Sorry we laughed, how do you lose 1/2 a house?.. lol It is a total lose! Her husband's truck is totaled. It had a big tree on the back of it.. She showed us a picture, they had to cut the limbs so the insurance could see the damage.While it sat there with a tree down on the bed on the truck, husband says he wants her to list it on Craig's List as Good Truck Loaded With Firewood... They both have a great sense of humor. She said all that matters is that her family is still alive. We completely understand. They had another house, so they are doing ok. That was my fun filled day. Back at home and ready to clean.... NOT.... Till later.......

UPDATE - 4:58 Pm - Check back with me tomorrow!! I will post about my Birthday Giveaway and how to enter!!!!

Sounds like you had a fun time with your friends. So nice that you still have a couple of close friends from high school. That's quite an accomplishment with how life changes us all from the teenagers we were to what we have become.

Happy almost birthday to you!

How nice that you are still able to get together with school chums. My DH and I are headed to a high school band reunion this summer. Should be a lot of fun. I won't have seen some of those people for 37 years!

Love your CH finish!!
