Sore Thumb Sunday

A sweet gardening friend invited members of our Gabby Garden Gals club to tea yesterday. She had set the most lovely tables. We enjoyed lively conversation and liberal treats! ;-) She even gave "door prizes." We wore hats. That was fun.

The special table settings - #1

and #2

Could we have a garden party without Myrtle Underkirker?
(Whew! Was my friend Gladys mad when she found I'd gone without her...
and that Myrtle had been there!)

After our teaparty, we were invited to the basement/garage/workshop where
her Very Patient hubby waited.

Yes, we put our "carpentry skills" to work.



The finished product! Something we can use
and our birds can enjoy!

Who was the unlucky fellow that hurt his thumb?
Frank the Patient Hubby should have quite a blood blister by now!

We're sorry... but we're Grateful for the (Blooming) fun time!
LOL

Your GGG has to be one of a kind.
Even made something for the birds...not that's nice.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Rosemary, YOU would have had a fun time!

Hi Darla, It was fun - something we all need from time-to-time!

Patsi, We're one-of-a-kind for sure... ;-) Now I want to find a place for mine to hang... away from squirrels, if possible!

What a fun time you all had Shady... apart from poor Frank's injury of course!

I have a hanging table similar to yours but it well never hold the memories yours will.

Thank you for letting us share the event, I enjoyed it :)

This looks like a really fun time. Your group sure does a lot of great projects. It's a perfect way to spend a winter day too.

Hi Kathleen and Liz, These are the types of things that help lift the spirits during a long winter. :-)
