Off to San Diego!!

So now I'm off to San Diego. I pre-wrote this post as I won't have any time between trips. I'm going down to celebrate my friend, Anita's 50th birthday. I am helping with the party. Toni (our mutual friend), Laura and I are doing a Garage Sale Themed birthday party for Anita--who is the queen of Garage sales!! On Saturday the gals are all meeting at Starbuck's at 7:00 a.m. to hit the garage sales. One of the games is to find a present there for Anita and she'll have to guess who's it's from. Then we'll meet back at Toni's around 10:30 for brunch. The tables will be mix and match (mostly mix) so it looks like a garage sale. I'm bringing down a few of my 40's vintage tablecloths.
A picture of Anita's present is at the end of this Anita--if you're reading, you better stop here!! ;-)
Anita's gift is at the end of this post...after I did it, I made myself a little house jewelry...I
made a little collage and glued it to the back of an old chandelier crystal--I got a box of 'em for a few bucks a while back at , yes, a garage sale. I added a little vintage rhinestone and bead and it hangs from black velvet ribbon. A fun little bling for my house!
Okay, so here's Anita's gift. My neighbor gave me a few glass ,um, I'm not sure what to call them..they came off a chandelier, tho. Anyway, I made a collage with the theme of garage sale and glued it to the back. It hangs by a black velvet ribbon. It was so much fun to make I can't wait to back to make more!!
I'll be staying with three different friends while I'm in San Diego, and will return late Tuesday.
Pics to follow in a day or two after I get back...
Have a wonderful week!
