It was so easy to move when 
we were younger!  2016 was a
 difficult year.
I am so glad it was over when 2017
arrived - so I start with a little
"Friends Sharing Tea" I set up in
the month for January celebrating
Queen Victoria:

February was a time to 
celebrate Valentines Day:

and also my friends Gina and
Janice took me to the
for my birthday:

that is - Paris, Missouri!  There
was an antique show there in a 
school and I found these old
English cottage dishes.

I was able to start up "Tea In The
Garden" which was shocking to me 
as I knew back in Colorado it was
time for lots of snow!

with a bird theme:

July:  It is so 
thrilling to find
flower for bouquets:

when the weather
gets plenty hot:

October was a time for mums:

Well - that's it for 2017.  
I am happily caught up!
