You were invited~


I dreamed last night of an evening with friends.
I served the most delicious dishes
that had us all savoring every morsel.
Gathered around the table were my new friends,
you sweet ladies that
offer support and encouragement with
funny, witty and clever comments.


One of the ladies, Spencer was her name, brought me
the most lovely hostess gift. As I untied the twine
which held a twig of forever leaves,
my eyes fell upon a bloomin' card.
Each little detail had to be examined.
Then I unfolded the most intricate
needle work with beads and golden cords.
Oh, it's a pillow cover!
This dream just kept getting better and better.

And then I awoke...

to find this at the foot of my bed.

In blogland my dreams really do come true!

Thank you Spencer~
and
Thank you all~
for bringing a smile to my heart.

And be sure to visit & thank Susan~
for hosting Tablescape Thursday.

~Happy Candy~

Your table is just gorgeous! I love those mini candleholders. I found some clear ones today at Marshall's but I didn't grab them because I guess I wanted colored ones. But it looks like you grabbed them already. LOL
