Today I was treated like royalty by 2 other bloggers who have become wonderful friends.  Thank you
Gina and Janice who took me to the
Shady Gables Tea Room in Versailles, Mo as
part of a birthday celebration. (I had no
idea we were going here today)
Janice and I made a big decision that we
 will no longer celebrate "birthdays"
 but we will call it "Queen's Day"
from now on - no more birthdays!

When we arrived many cars were parked outside
and ladies were already enjoying Afternoon Tea.
Some sites on the way over:

And here we are at the tea room below and I take terrible pictures and am in total denial about how
old I am getting.  This is Gina in the red,
Janice in the pink and me in the sweater
with the roses.  These two gals are wonderful
people who I dearly love!

  10. What a delightful way to celebrate your special day. Happy Queen's Day, Bernideen!

  11. Oh how fun! What better way to celebrate a b-day than with like-minded friends at a tearoom! Queen's Day is a cute idea. I always say birthdays are a good thing - the more you have, the longer you live! ;-) Blessings for a wonderful year ahead. Hugs, Phyllis

  14. Yes, Queens Day is perfect, Bernideen! I'm so glad that you had a wonderful birthday celebration with two special friends.

  15. I'm a bit late, but Happy Queen's Day, Bernideen! What fun you are having with these two ladies.

  16. Bernideen, Thanks for sharing your celebration photos! I love tea houses and there are not enough around in my opinion. Have a great day! Sylvia D.
