My Rose Cottage

Hello, Hello, Hello,
Since my 1st post, our little group " The Shabby Chic Roses " has had two meetings. Remember I told you that I started a chapter in the Red Hat Society? I am still excited about being the Queen!! It is a really important position!!lol We had our first meeting here at Sherry's Rose Cottage & we had so much fun! We basically decided on when we would have our next meeting, how often we would meet, we drew names for our Secret Secret Sisters & most importantly~~what we would eat at the next meeting!! At our 2nd meeting , also here, we all wore our red hats and purple clothes, ate pizza and played red hat bingo. I had little gifts wrapped for the winners including a grand prize basket for the winner of the last game who filled the entire card. The oldest member of our group is a precious lady who is 83 years young. This is her in the above picture. Isn't she absolutely adorable!!! Her name is Edna & she is a sport! I just love, love, love her!!! She won the grand prize at Bingo!!! She also had the best red hat. I will have to post another picture of her so you can see the back of the hat!!! Our next meeting is going to be in the middle of April. We are going to go to a local restaurant here in our little town & then we will come back to my home & make mini scrapbooks of our previous 2 meetings. I am trying to find red hat scrapbooking items and it has not been easy. I have bought a few things off ebay & other websites. If anyone knows where there is a good selection, I would appreciate it so much if you would let me know.
I have to sign off now~~~I am in the middle of cleaning & organizing my scrapbook armoire now. I would really hate for my Red Hat Sisters to see the mess it was in!
Until later!
Hugs, Sherry
