IT FINALLY HAPPENED...

I've been trying to host a luncheon for CENTRAL FLORIDA BLOGGERS since before we went to Texas in the Spring but illness, the show, and life got in the way. But today it came to fruition and these lovely ladies came for lunch, comraderie and fun.


We ate some fabulous food contributed by all...



They came bearing gifts... Thanks everyone, I loved them all...


Please stop by and pay these fabulous bloggers a visit won't you?

Top row: Vicki (rustyroostervintage), Kathy (no blog but we are working on her), Carol (The Polka Dot Closet). Bottom row: Sylvia (My-trinkets blog), Sue (Suebees-karen sue blog), Susie (susie-frommyhometoyours).

I loved reading the post about momma bird on her nest. I hope things go well for her this year.

Shelley, Thanks so much for pulling it all together for the luncheon. I had a great time and it was surely fun to put faces with names and meet everyone.

Once again, your home is so lovely and inviting, and always a source of inspiration to me.

Shell,
I think this is a wonderful idea. Don't be surprised when the group gets bigger and bigger.
It ought to be against the law to have that much pretty in one room!

I am so glad we finally did it! Now, I am looking forward to the next one. Shelley, thank you for opening up your home to us. Girls, not only did she organize it and host it, she let us wander about her beautiful home and take pictures. Thanks, Shelley. It was a lovely time. If everyone is game for driving to Oviedo, I would be happy to host the next one.
