Artsy Sunday Afternoon Gathering!

Yesterday afternoon I had my group of artsy ladies over for lunch, some creating and a birthday celebration. It just so happens that my friend Kelley's birthday is in a couple of weeks so we celebrated it a little bit early. Happy EARLY Birthday Kel!!
From left to right: Karen, Pamela and Lynn. (Susan and Molly couldn't make it this time.)
My lunch, on a snack set plate that my Mom got as a wedding gift 48 years ago. I love them!


My empty plate after the lovely fruity dessert that Karen brought.


Pamela was working on these cute little nugget tag holders...aren't they adorable. She got the pattern from split coast (I think....)

Kelley brought me this cute little card she made...i just love the turtle on it's back, I certainly have days like that too!



Pamela brought me this little basket that she made filled with some beautiful french soaps. Love them, and it looks so cute in the bathroom next to the wire bird I got at target last week.

Now, on to the food. I cooked all morning in a quiet house and at my own pace...it was great! This is an avocado brushetta spread....it was awesome. the recipe came from Vegetarian Times. I should have toasted the bread but ran out of time, it wasn't an issue though. Mu husband came home from his fishing trip and polished the rest off and didn't complain about the untoasted bread either...so I guess it was ok.

Red pepper hummus....not as good as I wanted it to be but it was ok. Kind of a made up recipe.

The counter with some of the food....

Mushroom tartletts with a polenta crust, my own creation. They looked a lot better, and tasted even better than this picture shows.

And the best part of all...these little ricotta/blackberry tarts. Oh they were so good, and worthy of the stomach ache they gave me!
All in all, it was a great day. Thanks to everyone that came, I really enjoyed your company and can't wait until the next time!

To everyone else, thanks for visiting...some crafty goodness coming tomorrow!

  3. Lunch was so yummy! The afternoon was so inspiring. I love getting together with our crafty friends and sharing ideas, our latest purchases, and samples. I have my bunny peat pot on display in my craft room. Thank you so much! I think I will have to start a special "Catherine's Corner" in that room! :)
