Southern Belles and Sugar Bars

Welcome night at Petticoatsa and Parasols. Jennifer put together a magical evening that any Southern Belle would be delighted to attend. Every detail was thoughtfully arranged so that we might have the best time ever . . . and, yes ma'am, we did!

Our tables, bedecked with southern finery

Meeting sweet Christine Rose Elle was a joy. We both are smitten with vintage textiles! It was so much fun to have her as an instructor for one of our beautiful classes. Tiffany, I am so sorry I did not get a pic with you on this night. I was bedazzled by the magic of the evening, lol! Tiffany was the photographer for our event. Be sure to visit her site, She does amazing work! Not only was she the photographer but also one of our incredible instructors. (I will post pics of those projects soon!)

My sweet roomie, Charlene, with the amazing Jo Packham. Jo, our guest speaker, was such an inspiration to all of us. She was so encouraging - no matter what obstacles we face, we should keep going, keep reaching for our dreams. "My Hell!", that is darn good advice.

Rosalyn-Sue out did herself with such a phenomenal sugar bar. Oh my sugah, it was fab!
Old fashioned candies and home made goodies - as sweet as Rosalyn-Sue herself.

A sweet bookmark from Jo

{SWOON} - - the goodie bags and swaps! Eeep!

And ladies, this was only the beginning . . .

xo's Sugah! Heidi
