My photo of Lori and I together was totally blurry so I had to swipe this from Lori's blog. Not our best pose but don't let that fool you. We were having a great time.
Lori is amazing. She can do everything. Lori made me the best gift. See this sweet necklace above. It has my photo of me in my "Nanette" dress that my mom made me for Easter one year many years ago. I really cherish that photo. She couldn't have picked a better choice. Lori made herself a matching necklace with a photo of her as a little girl. She needs to show her necklace on her blog.
The back of my necklace charm has my "Freda's Hive" logo quilt picture on it. And then it is placed on the fabulous silver ball chain at the perfect length. Isn't that fantastic! I really love it. I have worn it non-stop and show it to everyone. Thank you Lori. I love it so much. We met for lunch at "Food for Thought" in Draper. It is a great little home town restaurant serving fresh food. We both had the butternut squash soup - so yummy. (By the way I took this photo of the restaurant during the summer.)After that we went to Nadine's Material Girls. Nadine always welcomes her customers with a smile and treats everyone like they are her friend. But when I'm with Lori, I feel like I'm family. It makes it more fun. Nadine has a blog, too, in case you didn't know.Here is my "take" from the trip to Material Girls. More on what is in the bag on Friday. It is so fun to shop with Lori. We are drawn to the same fabrics and ideas.
Next we went to Aunt Elsie's Trinkets and Treasures located just up from Material Girls on Redwood Road. Fun fun store. This is the inside of the front door. My photos were not wonderful so I missed some of the lovely treasures we saw.There was fabulous vintage jewelry. I wish I had Freda's stash of jewelry. I used to love to play in it when I was a girl.
I picked up a set of cups and saucers at a great sale price. These lovely floral dishes are perfect for a gift idea.
I want to make pincushion holders with the teacups and saucers. I know these are also cupcake holders but I'm trying to think what else could you put on top of these little plates that would be cute?
I told Lori we need to get together once a month and make it a date. If you happen to be in town and want to go along with us just let me know. You'll have a good time.
