We had a ball on our Sisters Trip but all good things must come to a close!
Sweet Deanie got just a little bit more beauty sleep Monday morning!
She LOVED her comfy bunk bed!!!
I got the sofa in the living room area. This worked great since I stay up later than my sisters do.
Nita got the bedroom!
We all felt like we had the best spot!!
We spent one last morning together talking and drinking coffee!
We loaded up and packed the car tight!
Nita and Deanie didn't even put make up on and look how pretty they look!
Nita drove through the rain at times on our way home, stopping for potty breaks and gas.
Nita did stop so I could grab some lunch! I was the only one HUNGRY!!!
It was home sweet home!!!
I do believe Louis Dean was glad to see me!!
We spent a little time in the gazebo catching up!
Feet up and wine poured!
Nita went home to her sweet husband, Mike!!!
Deanie went home to her husband, Charlie!
AND to Mother since that's where she's at for another week or so.
As good as it is to GO - it's just as nice to come HOME!!!
However, we have already set the date for next year's Sister Trip!
Destination - San Antonio!
This morning I slept late and stayed in my gown all.day.long.
I'm STILL wearing it as I write but will take a nice long hot shower and shampoo my hair when I finish this journal entry!
I've stayed pretty close to the den all day.
The TV stayed tuned to Chip and Joanna Gaines with episode after episode of Fixer Upper!!!
I worked in the foyer and could still hear the TV.
I went with a Tea Party theme in there!!
The last of the Christmas came down today.
Poinsettia dishes packed up and stored away. I also found the odd and end things plus all the gold and angels from the foyer.
I embellished this 1929 Vogue's Book of Etiquette years and years ago.
It makes for very interesting reading!
The tree is decked out with tea cups, lace, green pearls, fabric roses and a bit of gold rope.
It's nice to see all my tea things again. Normally, they live in the curio cabinet in the foyer.
I do not have pretty tea pots so I will be searching for a few at the thrift stores this year!
Roses are a popular theme to tea dishes.
I displayed the tiny set set I made for Amber when she was a year old.
I am happy with the way it looks!
I cleaned and fluffed the living room next!
I love the way Deanie has all her candles grouped in her living room so I made a similar tablescape with mine!
It smells so GOOD!!
I still have the kitchen to put to rights before I go to bed......
and eat something......
and watch a few episodes of Unforgettable.......
AND take that shower!
I love this sign I have in the living room.
It is truly the basis for a good marriage and a happy home!
