Back from Berea

Hello, dear blogfriends. I'm finally back in the blogosphere after a wonderful weekend out of town with husband, daughter, and granddaughters celebrating Abandoned in Pasadena's big birthday. We had a great weekend and we enjoyed visiting with everyone. There were presents, songs by two little angels, many enjoyable meals out with family, and a very entertaining mariachi band. The highlight was the birthday girl having a sombrero plunked on her head while being serenaded by four singing mariachis. A fun time was had by all.

After the birthday party, some went to get their hair cut, some went to play with computers, and Sandy and I visited all the Old Town craft shops. Even though it was her birthday, guess who received a present?

This little beauty was a custom stained glass panel created by a lady in Winchester, Kentucky. We were informed that this was the last piece she created and she is now no longer working with stained glass. That makes this piece entitled Ocean's Breeze more valuable. I think it is very beautiful and I will cherish it forever.

Thank you, Sandy, for the lovely present. We had such a wonderful time visiting you and it was a joy sharing your birthday.

It's wonderful to have you home! What a beautiful piece of stained glass. Of course I had to bring Bill in here to see it, as he loves to do stained glass work. He agrees that it's a real work of art!
Glad you had such a wonderful time!!
You deserve it...

we had such a good time. Your stained glass is very pretty, too, there next to your kitchen sink. Now you can look at it when you cook.

The stained glass is lovely. I love all the little shops in Berea--one of my best friends went to college there (and still lives near, actually) and whenever I would visit I would come away with some handmade treasure.

Glad you had a nice trip!

I'm glad you had a good time and I'm glad that you love your present...you deserve it.

I had a GREAT time!!!

You should take some stained glass courses now that you are retired...they make great gifts...if you can part with your artwork. *LOL*
