Monday's Musings

Well, this morning was a VERY early one for me.  I had to arise at 3:00AM to catch a 5:55AM flight headed to Virginia.  My goodness, I'm an early riser but for goodness sake, 3:00AM is entirely too early.  But, one has to do what they have to do and I do like the fact that I will be arriving at my destination before noon.  Meanwhile, here's what's been happening...............

 I belong to a group of gals that play Bunco once a month.  What that means is 12 of us gather at one of our homes for a very mindless game and a whole lot of fun and fellowship.  I hosted the group last week and I had such fun preparing for it.  I found the zebra place mats at the Dollar Tree and thought they would be "pizazzy" and cute.  I had planned to just use disposable plates and while in the Dollar Tree I was on the aisle that has the dishes and such and happen to see these "real" black dishes.  Well, they were $1 a piece and I simply could not resist because 12 disposable ones would likely have been half of the cost of these.  So, they came home with me and I accented with the red napkins and red dessert plates.  Yes, the clean up was much more time consuming for sure but it was fun and I'm thinking I'll probably have another excuse to pull all this out and use it again for some other occasion.

It's Spring, my favorite time of the year.  Once I took the Easter decor down then I added just a few touches of spring.  I love this wrought iron piece that can serve as a candle holder or a container.  I've always just used it for a container and I love the lemon and limes for spring.  The added greenery and gerber daises make me smile every time I see them.

 Last Thursday evening was our annual Ladies Spring Event at our church.  This year's theme was "The Bride of Christ."  Our speaker did a drama presentation on we as women being the bride of Christ and how we can never do anything to separate us from His love and acceptance if we have accepted Him as our Savior.  A whole lot of work goes into this event each year.  There were 8 decorated tables and each one decorated as one for a bridal reception.  It's always such fun to see the different creations that ladies come up with.  It was another fun evening of great food, fellowship and inspiration. 
This precious lady is responsible for our church's Women Ministry.  It was probably 15-20 years ago that she took on the reigns of developing the ministry and she has remained a faithful mentor ever since that time.  She is my "idol."  She has been like a second Mom to me and many other women as she has taken us "under her wing" and offered such profound wisdom.  I pray that I can leave half the mark in others lives as she has. ~love her dearly~

I'll "see" you when I get back from my beautiful home state of Virginia.  Enjoy this new week and make every day count!

  1. Hi Lea...I'll be on my way to Va next month when my #2 graduates from college. What a beautiful state!! Your table and flowers look beautiful. I used to love Bunco in Tx. Unfortunately, no one plays here. Safe travels!

  3. I remember your dear friend from a previous post, perhaps related to last year's annual spring event? Lovely theme and decor. I'm working on my tablescape for my church's similar event (in May). Enjoy Virginia. It's a beautiful place.

  4. I love what you did for the party. Who would have known we could find such neat things for just a dollar. And yes, things are always done exceptionally top-notch at FBC. I would love to give that idea to our Director of Ministry. I'll talk to you about the speaker when you get back. Have a wonderful trip.
