Hello my friends, thanks for visiting! What a nice day we had yesterday! I met my blog friends Betsy, Gracie & Taci for lunch and a gab fest. :-) We met at Bocelli's Ristorante in Gresham. (Click on the girl's names to visit their blogs.) (Don't forget to enter my giveaway! Valentine Giveaway!

My 3 friends all celebrate their birthdays in February, so I got each a big huge chunk of milk chocolate and made them each a card with a photo of all 4 of us from our Christmas luncheon here at the farm.
And the other girls brought gifts for each other and even something for me - whose birthday isn't until April! Gracie gave us each some of her yarn from her own stash and made the cutest handmade card, the one with the red flower in the center. It had each of our names and the background was all the restaurants where we've met for lunch. Betsy knitted each of us a cute little red wool heart and added a pin on the back. Taci gave us each a nail file and some hand sanitizer for our purses. She also made a wash cloth for the birthday girls.
Look at the luscious ombre yellow wool yarn that Gracie gave to me! Now to figure out something wonderful to make with it!
After lunch, Taci and Gracie headed off to other pursuits and Betsy and I crossed Main Street to peruse the contents of an antique store. Lots of fun glass items in the back in front of a big window.
Vintage jars, glass fishing floats, fun fun fun.
Look at all this vintage pyrex! I have my eye out for turquoise and pink.. these were the colors of the 70s.. harvest gold, coppertone and avocado. :-)
I asked Betsy to pose for me with an old prom dress.. isn't she cute?
I just LOVE this little red cabinet with chicken wire in the doors.. too bad I have more cabinets in the farmhouse than the law allows.. :-)
In fact, I bought one thing in the shop.. can you spot the green glass sugar jar?
I really enjoyed this front section by the window with the turquoise cabinet and all kinds of pretties.
Here is my treasure. We just have to run it through the dishwasher and then fill it with sugar. I'm not sure if it's all that old and the top is shiny new... but I still love it.
I hope you've enjoyed joining us for lunch and the jaunt around the antique shop. Now it's nearly time for me to pack up my swim bag and meet Gracie in the pool!! I hope you're having a great week. (PS - Dayle is doing better and Kristi is taking him to Physical Therapy while I'm swimming.) ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
