On Sunday, March 29th, was the 3rd semi-annual Blog Party and it was an absolute blast! Sue of The Junk Market also joined us to debut her new book, Junk Beautiful-Outdoor Edition. There was food and drinks and just an all over good time was had by all. Every time I looked around there was laughter and conversation and you could just tell by the number of people that showed up that they were having a great time.
I first want to thank Junkin Buddy Marion for your hard work and help and for the awesome Banana Bread and goodies you brought. Next I want to thank Deb for the awesome cheesecake and the loan of the desk and chair. Sue many thanks for choosing me to have one of your book signing events. Please come back each season and hang out with us, you were a blast as were your helpers. Cheryl of Zapp Hall for the awesome wine, thank you. Stacey without your help with serving the wine I would have been a mess--not knowing which one was which since I don't drink, well you were just a big help! To my husband for helping me build the arbor, could not have done that huge part without you. Thanks to all that showed up and especially for the ones that drove long distances, I so appreciate you from the bottom of my heart for making this a great event that will be continued each Spring and Fall.
Now, here's the party crew:
Sue and I. If you haven't purchased her book, you need to quickly get a copy. It's full of ideas.
Elizabeth and Laurie looking so pretty. Laurie was delayed by the plane, next time she'll just rent her own jet or come down a week before so that there are no problems.
Lisa's daughter and pup also attended the party.
Here's Lisa and Renee, not sure what the expressions were, you never know what Renee is thinking and of course she's reaching for something out of her secret hiding area! See this post for an explanation about this joke.
There's Donna, Mayron and Stacey.
Deb and Cher, both professional photographers put my pictures to shame. Don't they look pretty at the party.
Here's Elizabeth, Deb and I'm sorry I'm not sure who these fans were.
