Hi Peeps! What a busy weekend I had. Saturday I picked up my dress for the wedding and then we had to look for a new microwave. Thankfully we found what we needed and there was one in stock😀. Although I don't use the microwave to cook I use it all the time to reheat things- especially coffee, or to make hot water. Also to defrost things, and soften butter. Then I had to empty a small china /tea cup cabinet so hubby could raise it a bit to fit in the microwave.
And Sunday was Kyra's bridal shower which was a brunch held at the Easton Wine Project. I had never been there but what a great rustic place! We had a private room of course and it was the perfect size for the 20 some that attended. Here are some photos (if you want to go right to the art just scroll down;). I'll start with tables and displays:
Each of the four seating tables had photos of both Todd and Kyra as babies.
This was my plate. The food was buffet style and included 3 different quiches, a fruit platter, small bagels with a variety of toppings/spreads to choose from, a walnut and cranberry salad with Spring greens, and a sinfully delightful pastry filled with chocolate mousse. Our beverage choices were coffee, water, mimosas. Cheers to the T Stands For Tuesday gang- you will see several drink related photos 😉
She got so many wonderful gifts from her registry, and we were able to get everything but that huge box in front of her (it was a special sitting bench she wanted that her mother gifted her with) into the car!
Kyra wanted new earrings for her wedding day and I wanted to gift them to her so she picked out these sweet Kate Spade flower ones and I gave them to her at the shower, along with another special gift..
Me with Kyra and her sister Paige.

Still with me? On to the art then:
This is the card I made for Kyra when I presented her with the earrings and I will share it with the Simon Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes) and the Try It On Tuesday Challenge ((Autumn Colors):
