Yesterday was the first full day of school for my girls, and also a special day for me! I was invited out to a sweet little teahouse for lunch with a lovely group of ladies... and I was one of two who recently celebrated a birthday, so there were gifties! While awaiting my wonderful mandarin chicken salad and cranberry orange tea (in the elephant pot!) I opened a lovely fall quilt and pattern from Rhonda, pumpkin votives and a Starbucks gift card from Jill, and yet another Starbucks card from Cindy. (I. Love. Starbucks!) Andrea and I had gotten together on my birthday... she gave me some great retro kitchen linens and a fabulous Coke T-shirt. (You can see those gifties in this post.) I shared the little Moda ribboned bags that I posted about yesterday... and they were a hit! So thank you again, Ladies, for a really wonderful afternoon! My favorite part about Appledoorn's? The fab teapots!
