Making Pretties

There is a little grange hall by where I live. Every year they put on a clam chowder/soup dinner as a fund raiser. I have been in charge of it for the last 6 years as I am the only one under 80 years old. Anyway, I have been making hearts (with Brandie's help) for the table decorations. We went to Goodwill in Albany and found lots of cute containers for primroses and we are putting valentines on sticks and putting them on the tables. They are so cute. I will show you a finished one later when I get the moss on them.

When we were in Albany we went to the Vintage Roost. It is a very cute little shop opened only a few times a year. But it is so fun to go to. Next time I will take my camera and show you. Then if you go down town there are some adorable shops there, too. All in all it was a very fun day.

If your not busy Sunday come on over to the grange and have some soup.

Heck , maybe I can start learning how to do these things for myself !

If you need any help this weekend, PLEASE let me know. I would love to help out, call if you need me!

Beautiful hearts, think I'll make me some and string them like garland to hang on the wall. Are they make of card stock or felt? You must live in the south also, to have camillas. Have a blessed day, RoseMarie
