Angie's Birthday & Birdsong 2014 Peeps

Welcome back!

On my last post we had finished our Friday shopping at the Kansas City West Bottoms.
I shouldn't say we finished our shopping as it is nearly impossible
to see every store in one day.

Next the Birdsong Peeps headed to their various Lawrence, KS hotels and met up again to celebrate Angie's birthday inside her lovely vintage store My Father's Daughter

Beth provide us a Make-n-Take project of vintage empherma,
old ledger cards, trims & stuff!  Thanks Beth!

 Hope looking marvelous even with her broken foot & scooter!

We enjoyed Angie's wonderful birthday party, had fun creating Beth's Make-n-Take, shopped for beautiful treasures while at Angie's store My Father's Daughter and had the opportunity to donate funds to benefit the Ballard Center.

Thanks to all involved for making this event a wonderful evening!

Our next morning greeted us with anticipation & excitement as Birdsong 2014 had arrived.

Old friendships and new friendships gathered in Karla's beautiful home & studio.
Lots of love, laughter & inspiration were shared

Happy Birthday Gail!

I usually am not in a lot of photos as I am the one snapping them,
but this year I made it a point to get photos with my friends.
