We just had the best trip to Kiawah Island, SC with some great friends of ours from here and the Dallas area. It's the prettiest place! and there is a beach...i'm all about the beach! The big trees and moss are so very different from Midland, Tx! Each year we go on a trip (must have golf spas, and shopping and wait... relaxation if none of the above!) Next year is the choice of Missy and Kenny..Special times
the girls, kathy, dena, me, missy at Kiawah Island in S Carolina!
i havent blogged since Renea left town and moved to Cleburne. I'm picking it back up.. renea had a big one birthday (50)heeheehee.. she came to town and lesley and she and i had a slumber party!. we had fun. this was the very beginning of the night. les forgot a coverup and i loaned her my spectacular body shirt! renea of course was very prepared! hee hee
we tried to surprise her and act like we didnt know it was her b-day..yeah right! long story but the balloons are bigger than her...so somethin worked out! she was surprised with the little party les and i gave her!
I gave her a cutey little maxi - kinda collaged- with sexy splits up the side...reminded me of her cuz of the bright colors and collage effects! hope she will enjoy!!!!
friends at the pool....too hot!
oh yeah she is the queen! but where is the crown....whoops at the bottom of the pool! i'll get it for you girl...les come help me! i can't dive all the way down there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
whose foot is that anyway???????????
how did this pic get on my camera....im in the pic and i take the pics....very mysterious
I had a brainstorm on Wednesday after we had gone out to lunch (renea, les, lisa, ree (reneas mom). It took a while like at 4:30 in the afternoon but......i wanted to take a picture we had taken at lunch and make each of them a pillow for valentines and going away. well, you know Renea is the queen and Lesley is the Funky Art Queen! So i spent some time in the fabric store and worked fast and furiously but I did finish them. I made them pillows with our pictures on them. Reneas was made specifically for her and Lesleys was made specifically for her. You can see the jewels on their crowns. The round things above Renea's are typewriter keys that spell QUEEN because we all know that she is!!!! Lesley's has Funky Art Queen embossed on her body! actually her jacket. these were so much fun to make. i had a blast! and i hope they loved them. i think they did.
the back of renea's pillow. i tucked in a vintage valentine i ordered on Etsy.
This is the back of lesley's. i love the little birds on both fabrics. this one makes me think of the counting crows song "birds on a wire". i'm gonna have to make some more of these. i had to copy renea's pockets because i had to do them so fast i couldn't come up with something else on my own! i will miss my friend's physical presence but we will still talk every day. post pictures, phone each other, blog so we can keep up with faces, e-mail, and then there is always going to visit,,,,,have i left anything out? love you girl. you will be great in Cleburne. lots of people to meet and you have no problem with that! remember if you don't want to work and still want to meet people you can VOLUNTEER! i just thought of that! love you and already miss ya.
