A Teaser

Ha ha - it has been awhile again, hasn't it?! But look who came to our house this weekend! Five College Girls! (the one with the pink collar coming in, is the one that belongs to us!) We had such a great time - the girls were wonderful - and dad spoiled us all by making all kinds of wonderful things to eat! Yes, you guessed it, we had to have Mocha Torte again!

And the first night we had a night of make your own facials! And this is just a teaser, I will tell you lots more about it in the next few days - but just wanted to wet your appetite! And please, please leave a message, okay? If you aren't a regular blogger, just go in under anonymous, and then sign your name as part of the message, that will be fine! So tell you more in a few...... Have a good week - hugs, Diane

What cuties! Looks like they all had so much fun together, too! Don't worry about selling eggs you speckle! You go right ahead if you want to, girl! You won't believe what I do, get an old toothbrush and thin down some dark brown craft paint with water, and dip the toothbrush in and I just run my thumb across and it lets the specks fly! Practice on a piece of paper first till you get the hang of it! thanks for visiting my blog, xxoo, Dawn

Hey Diane,
Just wanted to leave you a comment about the weekend spent in good old st. joseph! I had such a wonderful time and am so appreciative of your generosity. Thank you so much for the facials, the variety show, the dinners, the breakfasts, and the place to get away for the weekend. I hope that everything is going great and that you enjoy the time you will have with Emily when she is home for spring break!

I am so sorry I am so late in answering your question about the pretty pink plates Manuela sent me. I don't usually go back to posts comments after I move on to the next one and missed your question! Anyway, the plates Manuela sent me are by Homer Laughlin. On the back it says, Eggshell Georgian, Home Laughlin, Made in USA, M 50 N 5.

Now I know that Homer Laughlin has alot of different patterns called Eggshell I don't know what his particular pattern is. I think if you go to you might be able to find it...hope that helps. Oh! Also, if you look at this post:

You will be able to see what I did with the plates...please stop by and visit again soon!
