Crafternoon at Becky's

Meet Becky! A few months ago, she sent me an email to say hello. We quickly realized we live just a few miles from each other, love so many of the same things and have many of the same blog friends! Becky is a hoot. She is a writer, home stylist, fabulous cook and hostess, artist and collector of some great junk!  Becky is so talented in many ways, but entertaining is definitely top on the list. Thank you for a wonderful afternooon. Can't wait to get invited back.

Would you like to take a peak at her beautiful home?  She was so gracious to let me photograph a few of my favorite things during our visit. My photos do not do it justice but here are a few shots to share. You may recognize goodies from some of your favorite shops and blogs!

Take a look at this gorgeous table she set.  She had a cute banner craft for us to make, all the supplies and goodies we needed and this wonderful gift basket filled with some of my favorite colors (requested in advance) and textures!  Is she amazing or what? This girl needs a blog. Don't you agree?
Becky, Shelley, Jessica, Carol and Ruth - thank you for a great afternoon. Visit Shelley's blog Sweet Pea Home here for more great photos and links to the other guests websites. She got some great shots too. I unfortunately, had to leave a bit early for an Xmas party. So nice to get to know each of you ladies. Looking forward to the next one!  Hope everyone is having a great week. I'll share some Christmas decor around the house with you this week.  Be back soon!
