Yesterday was the monthly meeting of the Antique club that I belong too. I am the co-ordinating hostess and was also the chair for this months meeting. Had three really good hostesses that helped with the duties, one did not show, but will deal with her in future. The decorations were really lovely, flowers from various hostesses yards decorated the main table as well as the six tables where the members sat. Beautiful roses, alstroemerias and geraniums, and some dolls. As our speakers were giving a talk on Antique/vintage dolls. A very well presented talk as well as interesting tales from the members themselves. Didn't know that so many of our ladies collected dolls, or had dolls from their childhoods. Very nice!!! The sandwiches and fruit/veggie trays were excellent. Plenty for all, and had lots of compliments on each things. Our business meeting went very well, and our next monthly get together will be our installation luncheon at our members house, which is always a treat!!! The July meeting will be our White Elephant sale. Should bring in some extra cash for our club. Last years was a last minute thing, so everyone didn't have things ready, which shouldn't be the case this year!!
I was told by many of the members that I was the best thing to happen with the hostesses, and they had enjoyed the last year since I took over!!! Very nice to get a pat on the back for a job well done. :-) Also smart of them, since when you get a compliment, you try even harder!!!!
I will be away from my computer for a week starting tomorrow, but hope to have many nice things to put on the blog when I come home. Should be fun looking for treasures in new places, as well as eating out and doing nothing but enjoying life for a few days. Ta Ta for now, be back soon. Antique Rose
