Valentine's Day Party

Thursday, February 14, 2008

Thank you Jill & Jessica for the lovely Valentine's party...........

The fun touches of "McMaster &
Storm" were everywhere. Jill made everything in her home special for us. We also spied crown place card holders from Abby's store, The Blissful. Kara & Darcy went home with a sugar high thanks to Jessica who made cookies and to Jill for the other sweet treats. (Ok, they did serve healthy things as well, we did eat a spinach salad) Kara confessed to Darcy on the way home that she dug into Luke's treat bag and gobbled down 2 of the fun dip sticks......took Kara back down memory lane to Gilland's pool in Verona, Ohio where she would buy these. A warm memory on a brrrr, cold day. AND then, yes Jessica, Kara ate the Clark bar, from Jessica's son Clark, when she got home. She's such a good mom preventing her son Luke from eating all that sugar. We throughly enjoyed our "girls out sweet treat lunchy, lunch" with all of you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We love you all.

Hey Kara,
My sister is interested in photograhpy and has thought of pursueing it as her college major. Does that count as 'artsy'? I didn't even think of her until I was telling her about your idea the other day. Let me know.

Hi ladies! For starters, let me introduce myself. I am Becky and I live in MODESTO, CA! I was in Turlock on Sunday and one of the gals at an antique store there mentioned that you were in CL mag. So, I checked it out and thought I'd say CONGRATS!!! Then I found out that Kara had a store there and I never had the chance to go!!! I wanted to wish you all the best in your shop in Ohio and wish you were closer by! Love the vintage numbers on Page 44!!!!

Nice to "meet" you!!!

Becky

I loved the spread on your shop in Country Living and was excited to see your blog, just as cute. Now I can't wait for your website and the ability to shop your store. Arizona, where I live is sadly a little few and far between. However, we do have beautiful weather in February and a few shops that make it a fun winter trip worth thinking about... 75 degrees tomorrow...
