" Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."
Louisa May Alcott
Coming back from the store, we saw the beautiful butterlfy above, and then Kathleen picked me flowers from our front garden like she does just about every day to place in a vase on our table. :-)
Found a few more goodies from our garden too. :-)
I went to CVS this morning because we were out of vitamin C's and we need to stay stocked up on those for the season ahead, then Hayley told me she would like a spinbrush to decorate like Kathleen's. So I went online to find a coupon and I did for $2.00 off. :-) This is what I got today:
Vitamin's were buy one get one free, $6.39 for 2 bottles
Spin Brush was $6.99 less $2.00 coupon so $4.99
Faith Hill Perfume was $9.99 was free I had $9.99 in ECB's from the last visit.
I also had ECB's totaling another $9.00
My total cost for the above items including tax was $2.50 :-)
Putting a smile on Hayley's face? PRICELESS!
I also decided to do a Japenese tea party with the girls using what we had on hand.
I had the girls decorate the front and back of construction paper with butterflies and flowers. Then we folded it and made fans.
Then I had them choose a stick outside, and using pipe cleaners and pink tissue paper we attached it to the stick and made cherry blossoms.
For the Menu:
Dessert, flower cakes! ( Took a flower cookie cutter and cut out bread, then put some chocolate icing on top with pink sprinkles. Yummy! The girls loved it! :-)
We used the coffee table in our formal living room, and pillows from the couch for them to kneel on.
These lovely gals my Aunt brought home for me when I was very little after her trip there. I keep them in my curio cabinet now. Perfect for our tea today!
Better view of their fans and homemade cherry blossom branches.
We had a delightful time!
You thought I forgot the animal companions didn't you? LOL No they joined us to, here they are saying prayers before their meal. :-)
Hope you all have a wonderful, magical day!
