Girls' Weekend in Fairhope, Alabama

I just returned from a girls' weekend in Fairhope, Alabama with my southern friends, Becky and Missy. Becky, who lives in Fairhope, invited Missy and me to spend a few days with her so that we could make some neat things and attend the annual Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival.

The three of us met two years ago at an art retreat and have kept in contact via Facebook. Becky and I had gotten together a couple times to create things and were very excited that Missy could join us this time.

We had a blast. We named our visit "Fairhope Fun" which was an appropriate title. I made journals for everyone so we could remember all of the fun things we did. Becky and Missy LOVE the colors pink and aqua so I used these graphics for the journals.

Irish Vignette

I have a little spot in our kitchen where I like to place seasonal vignettes. I was happy to find this vintage doll dressed in a shamrock dress and the little guy playing the accordion.

My Happy List: California, Spain & Indiana

1. Having a husband who has business in California and a son and family who live there is a good thing - especially during the month of February when it is very cold back in the midwest! I got to travel there while Dan did his business and visit with our family. Our little grandson was just adorable and entertaining! Good times! We stayed a few nights at the Ayres Hotel as it is close to Dan's office. I wrote about this hotel last year here.
