Yesterday was our much anticipated Tea Party. Stuart has some friends here that he went to high school with so they all went away and played and let us wives play.
The day started on Friday for me. I cleaned hard core all day and rearranged furniture and packed some things away. The place was (and still is) spotless. I love waking up to a clean and tidy kitchen. It makes the day that much nicer.
Our walls are all naked, much to the disturbance of anyone who comes to visit :( It is pretty sad. I'm going to miss our apartment.
On Saturday morning as I was dashing about making and baking things the postman came and delivered two packages for us. One was packed with sweeties and the other had little Easter gifts. My favorite thing was this: All our other decorations are packed away and these little Spring blocks were perfect for our tea party. Thanks Beth!
We had a light lunch which was super yummy - devilled eggs, chicken salad croissants, chocolate croissants, snicker salad, cup cakes and poppy seed cake. I pulled out my lace table cloth specially.The boys were gone a while and we were able to chat and then someone had the brilliant idea to go to Porter's craft store and find a project for ourselves. We went and spent a while there. I came back with 5 wood blocks, white paint, sand paper and a piece of paper. Here's what I came up with:
I was inspired.
