AZ Bloggers

Marty from A Stroll Thru Life organized an AZ Bloggers luncheon at Gooseberries Tea Room. I had a great time meeting several of the ladies whose blogs I visit and find so much inspiration from. Marty did such a great job organizing this fun event, and I got to meet her personally!
There were 17 ladies (total) who showed up, and some presented us with a favor that they personally crafted. The above box was made by Ceekay from Thinkin' of Home. It's filled with yummy candy and the note says it all!
We were to bring a homemade gift or a small fall decoration for a gift exchange to remember the occasion. Well, let me tell you I did not remember reading that piece of information...and here I showed up empty handed!!! It was not a pretty moment in my life to say the least! I will not let this happen again!!! Note to self: Read and review, and list on my social calendar!!!

Marty to the rescue!!!
Like a perfect hostess that she is, she had a couple of extras to share!!! She presented me with the above seashell ball, but that's not all, she made it herself.
Thank you Marty! I will treasure this gesture for always!

What a perfect gift!
I always knew that this shelf in the guest bathroom was missing something...but no more. It is the perfect finishing touch!!!

The linen towels belonged to my mother-in-law's mother. The P stands for her mother's maiden name Provost.
My bathroom is now finished!


  1. Oliva, I am so thrilled that I got to meet you. What a fun day it was and you are just as sweet and pretty as you could possibly be. I can't wait until we can do this again and all get to know each other even better. Thank you so much for helping make this a day to remember. Hugs, Marty

  2. I am glad you enjoyed yourself at the luncheon. I did too. I wish we could have played musical chairs so I could have chatted more with everyone. :)
