creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

A Charmed Welcome….

Yesterday my Mom and I drove to the big city to meet up with my sister to…do nothing in particular.

We visited some thrift stores and had a splendid lunch at Chaps…one of my favorite places to visit.  Not only is the environment there…well, just perfect but the food is wonderful and being with my Mom and Sis made the company divine!  {i always enjoy an opportunity to sneak in a swEet visit with owner/operator extraordinaire Celeste, too!}

One of my fun purchases was 30 award ribbons {$1.98} that I switched-up and made into a name tag idea…possibly to be used at our next art retreat.  OH, YA!!!

These two charms pictured above and below have a sweet story…

The condensed version is, they were designed as a very thoughtful gesture to welcome a mother and her daughter to a new family and a new country…

  2. Your day sounds like it was positively splendid! I wish I lived closer to Chaps – the food is memorably special, as is Celeste.

    • You’re right – it just makes it all the more special when you do get to go!
