Hat Party

hats 002

Isn’t this the most adorable shabby garden shed?  I adore it….everything about it….leaking roof and all.  I was invited to a hat party last weekend and couldn’t help taking photos of Dawn’s lovely yard.  Don’t you love this shabby, pealing, rusty shed?

Her gardens were pristine and so gorgeous…not a weed in site…oh, bliss!

I loved how she had separate spaces for different types of flowers…eg…succulents were all together.

I loved these colors together!  I gotta’ get me some!

She even had a fun French outdoor room.  She stenciled lace to the walls with spray paint…lovely effect. 

We were  served ,wonderful homemade hors d’oeuvers, iced tea, coffee, drinks of our choice, and lots of other goodies by sweet Suzi….would that be Suzi Homemaker…I bet…because it was ‘over the top good’. 

  Thanks, so much, Dawn, for bringing us all together, in your lovely shaded back yard.

I didn’t get many hat pictures…..but this one, well, you know how it is, I just had to get one of my daughter, Tracy, wearing her grandma’s hat.  Grandma’s long gone now but she would have been thrilled.  This young lady just had a baby a little over a month ago.  I am so proud of her…love ya’ kiddo.
