Pink Saturday Valentine Luncheon and Swap

Happy Valentine Pink Saturday! I am not going to apoligize for this very long lots of pictures blog post because I had too! lol One of my Best Friend Cheryl from "Nouveaux-portmanteau" Blog, Hosted a Valentine Luncheon. It was so fabulous to walk into her beautifully decorated home with Love treasures all over.The table setting was so adorable every little attention to detail so many gifts even a beautiful Valentine necklace. We had a glass of champagne and chatted and then we had lunch and dessert and we created a fabric heart (still finishing mine up and exchanged gifts. I love my Girlfriends. They are so talented and they have the biggest hearts. We get together and chat about fabric and antiques and food and pinterest and giggle. Cheryl hosted a Valentine Cone swap and I was swapped out with Trish from ItsyBitsy Pixie and she received my cone. I hope you love this post as much as I do. It makes me smile. Girlfriends are the best! Please go visit my friend and Pink Saturday Hostess Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound" and all the wonderful Pink Saturday posts. xoox (blogger is giving me problems today now it is not letting me spellcheck so please forgive me) lol
