Meet My Friend Lisa & Happy Birthday Pat

This is my friend Lisa at the Open House at Collected Treasures. She just opened up her shop & did such an awesome job that I wanted to share a few photos with you. Also, she is new to BLOGGING so I hope all of you will go over to her NEW BLOG welcome her to Blogland. She was afraid to start a blog & between myself, Janna, Pat & Dawn Edmondson, we talked her into it. I know I have met some of the most wonderful folks out there through my Blog & I wish her a lot of fun & pleasure from it. She is a busy Momma to 3 year old triplets & she needs some girl friends that share some of her interests.
This is the walls of her new space. She took these wonderful pages out of an old book & put them on the wall. As they dried they were the most wonderful warm honey color. Then she added some tea dyed doilies & other things to add more interest to the walls.
A corner in Lisa's shop.
And here is my friend Pat with the rose cupcake for her Birthday Celebration. Pat is the sweetie that gave me that wonderful box full of vintage lace & tatting for my birthday back in June. Well, when "Honey" & I were in California I found a sterling silver spoon ring for her BDay gift. SHE LOVES ROSES! Of course the ring had a rose pattern on it. We had her over for a steak dinner & this Purple (her favorite color of course)Rose Cupcake was instead of cake. "Honey was OK with Rose cupcakes for dessert as long as he got dessert. And Pat loved it.
A fuzzy closeup of her ring. Enjoy it my friend & Happy Birthday!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week & for all of you in Texas...hope you are getting some of the wonderful summer showers we are getting. And a break in the 100 degree temperatures. Enjoy it while we can. Don't forget to go say HELLO to Lisa (& please tell her Charlene sent you). Hugs!!!!!!

Hey Charlene,

How are you? Long time, huh? I just got back from Jana's store. Small world.

I bought some vintage wallpaper from Lisa booth & am thinking about taking her apron class on Sept. 10th.

Are you taking it? And are you teaching the soldered charm class on the 19th?
