Hi Cathy,
So glad you are feeling a bit better. Oh the pics are wonderful. So full of girly fun and pretties. Love the pics of all the girls. The tables are so inviting and I bet a few treasures were there for you all. Love the parasols and the dressforms are so pretty. Just lovely! Thank you for sharing some of your great time.

What an awful time to get the flu, just when the weather is so beautiful you have to be under it. So sorry. Hope you feel better soon. Your pictures of the art event are beautiful! Thank you for sharing them from your sick bed.

Hi Cathy!!!!
Oh my --my mouth is dropped to the floor!!!!The decorations are so magnificent, someone did an outstanding job displaying the petticoats and parasol theme!!!!Everything looked so amazing, the sugar dipped rim glasses, the candy bar, the table decorations, oh my, if I could get my hands on some of those things, I would be in heaven, so frilly and so very pretty, that is why my heart loves the south so much, if I could live anywhere it would be Charleston, S.C.--So much to love about that area!!!Savannah is a delightful city as well, I love them both and have very fond memories of our visits to those places!!!!!
I hope you are feeling better soon, my good friend went to Baltimore to visit blogging friends and she came home with pheumonia. Take care of yourself and get lots of rest.

For true lovers of crafting to be able to share a beautiful time with other like-minded individuals must have been a blast. Oh how I wish I could have attended that event. It looks simply craft-a-licious! Now I'm re-inspired to go design and create something extra pretty.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Hi Cathy,
WOW! Love the pictures. I haven't even gone through mine yet. I hope to post tomorrow sometime. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed meeting you this weekend. You are so nice!!!! I have great memories of us in the room chatting all night. It is one of my fondest memories. I was lucky enough to get one of your paper dolls. LOVE HER! and you. I have displayed my little "Cathy Treasure" in my craft room as well. I hope to keep in touch sweetie. Look for my topper in Martha Stewart Weddings next month.

My Lovely Friend,
I am so sorry you are sick. I had the flu all last week and it really drained me.

I am glad you had a great time in Savannah. That place is so magical. The Commander and I got married on an old southern plantation in Savannah. I love that place *sigh*

I am enjoying seeing everyone's pictures since I could not attend. I will be going to Silver Bella this year so I hope to get to meet a lot of you talented girls!

Get well Sweets,

Hi Cathy,

I'm so sorry you are down with the flu...I think it's been 30 years since I've had it. [knock on wood]

I do hope you are feeling better soon....all of the photos are super. I know all of you had a great time.

Get lots of rest and get well soon,
Stephanie ♥
