Post #2 – Dinner, Drinks & a Tiara!

My Texas gal pal, Charlene was in town for Kim Caldwell’s Artistic Affaire Les Sirenes event last week.  I wasn’t able to attend, but I made sure I was able to scoop up her up and have a very long dinner so we could catch up.  We met last February at Art & Communion in Dallas and we instantly hit it off.  It felt so good to give her a big HUG.  And if you know Charlene, you know that here signature always says HUGS!


She is such a doll and brought me the most FabUlous birthday gifts.  How cute is this Lolita glass; it has the “Wild Thing” cocktail recipe on the bottom of the glass!


Then she made me this adorable fairy princess box that  barely made it through airport security.  I totally lost my mind when I saw the FabUlous vintage tiara inside!  This was one of her purchases at Paper Cowgirls; think I might need to go next year!

Ok, I’ll admit it . . . I did try it on when I got home and it fits perfectly, of course!  Can’t wait til we meet next March at Round Top.  Love ya, girlfriend!

I've been wanting to go to Paper Cowgirls. It's a bit far though and I really want to go to Silver Bella next year. Hope I get to go. Love the tiara and looks like you had a lot of fun. Happy Birthday!

Oh sweet girl I LOVE THIS POST! But, man I look tired! Am I that old or just that tired? As I said in my post... that long plane ride makes me realize how far away from my beloved California coast & friends I really am. My scales & tail are drying out from this horrid heat!!!! I MISS YOU!!! And we will be BF's forever. And of course the tiara fit. Your questioned it? FIT FOR A PRINCESS! HUGS! Charlene

I'm so happy you got to see Charlene while she was on your side of the earth ;)
She walked up to me at Paper Cowgirl, raised that Tiara up and said..."do you think Sandy would like this?"
Needless to say, I busted out laughing and said..."well HELL YEAH!"
Charlene is such a sweetie :)
You deserve all this goodness!!!!
