I’ve Been MIA…

Hello, Ladies, hope all is well with you!  It is hard to believe I haven't posted in so long, but life had non blogging plans for me.

Several health issues for my dh and myself took precedence, and preoccupied my time.  I am working on them, but I am not ready to blog regularly at this time.

I did some party planning over the summer for my community.

The first was Fourth of July and I used those navy and white tablecloths I had shown you.


100% cotton, and a great deal at $6.60  The centerpiece was simple, hydrangeas, red geranium and baby’s breath with a flag and tinsel pic. Red basket for each table filled with chips, etc.


We had the Fire truck Pizza Guy, and the residents were served many varieties of wood fired pizza and salads.


140 attended, and many stayed till dark when the fireworks over the Peconic Bay lit the sky .  A perfect spot to celebrate July 4th!


The next party was to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of our beach colony.




Five of the tables had the sailboats I have used before, filled with hydrangeas, mums, pachysandra and baby’s breath.

The other 5 had metal sand pails with the same flowers and shells, as well as the Happy Birthday sign.  They were placed on a mirror, surrounded by votives and each table had real shells filled with candy.

I did go shopping once with Alma over the summer.  I bought NOTHING!  I am trying to unload, not fill up, that time has come.  She bought a few several things, I am sure she will post about them eventually.  It was good to see her, and we went to a lovely place for lunch.  Forgot to take pictures! 

Many of the schools here on Long Island are opening this week, early, due to Labor Day falling the latest it can be.

For all those heading back to school, teachers and students, Happy School Year!  This year, all 5 of my dil and  son’s kids will be in school, from Nursery School up.  Good year to L, M, S, D, and E! 


I didn’t do a table for back to school this year, the way back machine provided this one.

Thanks to all who emailed to see if I was ok.  I am, and hope to see you again soon!

All the best,
