Ramona (aka Hydrangea Queen) and mua...Dirt Princess. This is one of the flags we painted to put in the tour gardens, the day of the tour. Notice the flag says "Carden" instead of "garden"....someone (I won't say what blonde woman in a green shirt did this.....) forgot the paint the "G" completely...I have to fix this soon.
Here is the Garden Club. From left to right:
Angie, Shirley, Mary, Sue, Anne, Janie, Mary, Pat, Edith, Deborah, Jennifer, Linda. Front Row: Ruth, Lisa, Amanda, Evelyn, Dirt Princess, Becky (aka The Dirt Queen...my mom), Audrey. Front and Center......Ramona The ladies discussing the tour, Sue, Ruth, Deborah & Sandra (my next door neighbor...she is on the tour)
Hat fixins.....ribbon, flowers, etc to put together our hats.
Dirt Princess and Kiki...the un-official Garden Club mascot. She prefers bugs, not flowers.
Dirt Princess and Jennifer
My mom....The Dirt Queen (ok....I know I am going to get some crazy comment about the turkey...I will follow up on that at the end)
Mary...making her grand entrance with her hat
Evelyn...showing off ;)
Edith...I'm not sure whats going on with her hat (it has horns coming out of it)...LOL!
Amanda See No Evil (Lisa), Hear no Evil (Edith), Speak No Evil (Evelyn)
the table....and Von's trifle dish :)
The night went great We all had a blast as usual! A lot of the ladies had never been to my home before. A lot of them read my blog, and told me that my yard did indeed look better in person than it did in my pictures...whew!!!! Thats a relief....I like to think I look better in real life than I do in pictures as well...LOL!
So now to the deer, and the turkey. When you are married to an AVID hunter (or huntress, such as myself), stuffed animals become part of your life. This is not my house...its our house. I have tried to create and environment thats suits both of us. For The Hunter...this means hanging animals up. Now I can proudly say that the turkey seen in all of the photos is the Dirt Princess'. This is the only thing I have!!! So I am proud him! I like to call my style Hunting Camp Chic...LOL!
I hope that all of us are ready for the tour...I know I am!!!!!!! I cannot wait. May 9th is FAST approaching. I pray that we have a beautiful...not too hot day!
I hope ya'll enjoyed our meeting! Wish you all were there!
