A Bluebirds & Roses Tea

On our way through Kansas, we were able to stop and visit with Karla ~ she graciously invited us to her beautiful home, and had also invited some other area bloggers for a tea party. The only ones I already *knew* through blogging were Karla and Beth, but it was a pleasure to meet all of these sweet ladies. And, of course, the famous Sugarwings, who is every bit as cute as her photos (though I somehow failed to get a picture of her)!! The little cutie in the photo here is Shawn's daughter.Karla had decorated the table in a bluebirds~and~roses theme in honor of our visit; I was so very touched and surprised!!!!!!!

It looked so beautiful; as does her entire home. I felt like I was stepping into a magazine (Karla has been featured in many issues of our favorite decorating magazines :) Can you imagine being able to tour her home in person? I know I'm blessed!! Also, her unbelievable studio, where she created the most amazing things.......

Everything is so beautifully-organized ~~ even her ironing board looks pretty!!

At the end of our delightful visit, Karla presented us each with one of the bottles she had used to decorate the table ~~ I chose one with pink roses.....


Thank you so much, Karla, for the lovely visit!! I certainly enjoyed it!!

Hey Becca,
You have been tagged! See my post for details. Cant hook up to your link, I must be getting the name of your blog address wrong. Can you help me with that?
