A Party

Shirley and I ventured out today—Jeane had decided to have a little luncheon for our quilt retreat group.  There were eight of us who braved the elements to join Jeane in her wonderful home, beautifully decorated for the holidays!  Jeane has that knack—gorgeous decorations displayed just perfectly.  Jeane’s home is a historic former carriage house—they used to store the carriages in what is now her living room. 

Lunch was a delicious soup, warm turkey sandwiches with cheese and apple slices, salad, delicious cookies and chocolate silk pie—YUM!!!  We had a great time—a lot of us have not seen each other since our quilt retreat in September!  Thank you bunches Jeane for deciding to have a party!

The roads were atrocious to say the least, Shirley and I took the little yellow jeep, slipping and slidding all the way.

Here are some photos of Jeane’s beautiful home:

In spite of this awful weather, life is still good!

  1. Agree Jeanne has a beautiful home, I love the tall ceilings. But what we have seen of your cabin it is equally beautiful. Perfect homes for the mountsin surroundings.

  2. I so enjoyed the personal of that beautiful home a few years ago. I agree with John. Yours home is beautiful and welcoming as well. I didn't even get to sit in your living room in my PJ's this year.

  4. Any reason for a party is worthy. That is a beautiful home! Like yours, it fits the mountain country you live in.

    We can see why you may wish to leave earlier next winter, for the southern climes. But, then again, it is unseasonably cold down here too!
