Once again, I had a fabulous time last week while in Dallas and Mineola, Texas with the girls there!! The time flew by it seemed but we did so much. It'll take me a few blog posts to cover it all but I'll do a bit today.
I flew in Wednesday around dinner time and Tisha picked me up and off we went to this restaurant to meet up with Kath and Paula who had driven in from Arkansas plus a few others...
And they ate the whole thing, lol!!! They had a pretty short 5 hour trip to Texas so that was nice for them. I brought two suitcases- one with clothes and one with scrap supplies, mostly kits so I could narrow down what I needed. It worked out great EXCEPT for the shopping I did there and the estate sale...but that will be later on!
Those notebooks on the left are all her stamps organzied by themes...it was all unreal. She is very talented and had so many cool things in her house that she made..this wall was made up of collages showing her family...
I had a very American themed bedroom that was very comfortable with a bath and Paula and Kath were on the other side of the bathroom in another lovely bedroom. Cathy, one of the girls in Texas and her husband, Dennis, came back to Tisha's house Wed. night so we could all talk. We had a great time talking to them. Cathy joined us on the weekend too.
We got to bed pretty late and left Tisha in the living room working on her computer as she had to get some work done before leaving for the weekend.
We got up early and headed off to a Starbuck's to meet up with two other of the women who were going to the retreat. One of them is Jenny who I met last June and I love and the other was this less than 5 foot ball of fire, Christy!! She has a scrapbook store in her house and she brought some of it to the crop. We then all rode about an hour west to Mineola, a darling little town.
are you noticing a theme here with Kath and Paula and desserts? LOL.
Southern Comfort House owned by Linda and Bill, a wonderful couple. Our bedroom was the window on top on the left! The former family room is now a crop room that fits 12 people and has comfortable chairs, big tables and a great light.
That's my table on the end there by the bookshelf. Loved it!
I have lots more to tell you so you'll have to keep coming back this week to hear about it. I did end up with a darn head cold, from the plane I'm sure, so not feeling tip top right now. I see naps in my future...
I was so lucky when I went to that crop last June in Whitesboro, Texas and knew not a soul, that Sherri, the owner, put me at the table with Tisha, Janis, Jenny and Lucette and we all hit it off and became fast friends. I feel very fortunate to be included in their circle of friends and now Kath and Paula are too as they loved everyone as well. Fun times!
