High Tea and the Thrift STore

I so want to do the Simple Woman's Daybook but Monday mornings are so hard for me since I must write before I leave for work then wait until Peggy posts hers and then up load it if I can get on the computer at work.... and on and on and on............
I probably can come up with tons more excuses if I try. I'll just have to figure something out! Any suggestion?????????

I went to Tea with my SIL's on Saturday. My hubby is 1 of 7. He has 6 brothers and 1 sister. So there were 7 of us for Tea. We went to a local tea house and had lunch/tea. Can you guess which on I might be??

It was a treat from my SIL Cindy for Christmas for all of us. We exchange SIL gifts among the 7 of us. This was her gift to us. It was nice to get together with out the "boys" for a change. I am closer to some than to others. My hubby always says we are together by marriage and some of us wouldn't be friends if it weren't for that. There are a lot of personalities when we are together. But the food was spectacular and the teas were great. Conversation was excelent and a good time was had by all.

Here is my TS finds. I was really excited to find the yellowish candle bow. Can't wait to paint and distress it.Perfect for my grubby candles I made. It was only $1.99. I collect the red cookie cutters. I'm hoping to have a whole set for each of my girls when they get ready to move out on their own. They are no longer produced. The one duck in front has 1956 stamped on it. They were $.79 each. The little pewter sugar bowl with no lid was $.99. The little believe sign was $.99 also. I was not pleased with the made in China sticker since I have seen so many wooden signs created here in the U.S. by fellow bloggers but couldn't resist the price and it goes to a good cause plus it's reuse instead of waste. How's that for rationalizing??

LOL, well I only had 2 SILs and 1 of them and I got along find, the other one couldn't get along with herself much less the other 2 of us. She is no longer a part of the family...7 I don't know about. I'm glad y'all were able to get together. I love your TS finds. That is my favorite pass time. Thrift Store Hopping.

Always nice to have a girls day out, isn't it?

Love your thrift store finds. I couldn't help but think what a pretty pinkeep that pewter sugar bowl would make! It's so pretty!

Have you considered doing your daybook at night before bed? I often do when I can't get to in the morning. And then sometimes I just do it on Tuesday. Daybooks are lovely and even if you choose not to link you don't have to. They're just a nice way to simply reflect on the joys of the day and should not be stressful.

Smiles,
