An Evening of Friendship

Hubby and I recently went to visit my friend, Shereen, and her husband.

It was the first time for the guys to meet.

We had a lovely evening of food and conversation.

Simple desserts and lots of laughter.

Shereen said she was inspired by me to take holiday photos from around her home, print and cut them out, then use them to decorate an old shopping bag.

And inside that bag were gifts for me.

This sweet book has the most beautiful drawings and poems/stories about cats.

Jingles agrees that Home Is Where the Cat Is!

Hope you are having a fabulous Friday. Happy weekend wishes! Tammy

Dearest Tammy,

Oh, I agree one-hundred-procent with Jingles! What a very thoughtful gift and such a unique presentation too. Jingles is a happy family member, one can see!!!

Have a Merry Christmas time. You now know; Home is Where the Cat is - that makes you miss the USA a little bit less...

Love,

Shereen's house looks so wonderfully relaxing and inviting. Once again, I am very impressed with her presentation skills. I am sure it was a very nice evening. Nice that you can turn your friendship with her into a evening that the husbands can share too.
Jingles looks TOO happy to know that a house is a bit nicer with a cat around...

Enjoy being around the house a bit more for the next few weeks, cat and all!!

Love,
Renee

Time spent with friends is always wonderful! My bff and I are doing lunch tomorrow and I can't wait. Seems we don't get together near as often as we would like to.
Merry Christmas Tammy!!

The best holiday treasures are in the friends we share the season with. Looks like it was a wonderful evening. What a great looking bag your friend made. I love the picture of Jingles and the book, how sweet! Keep enjoying this winter break. Look forward to seeing more of your holiday treats, visits, etc. Take good care.

Home is where your cat is, Tammy. One of mine is still-under-the-bed. (I will forever be thinking of those words all strung together!) Friendship is such a wonderful gift in and of itself. Merry Christmas to you and yours! (Keep spitting out the sand in those dreaded dust storms!)

What a lovely evening and bag full of gifts, you have some lovely friends to share such things with. Very cute picture of Jingles and the book. She seems quite content with the situation. Blessings, Diane

Oh Tammy, please, PLEASE submit that photo of Jingles and the cat book. It should be the cover of a cat magazine. It's awesome. I loved it. So glad you and hubby had a nice evening out with friends.

I'm sitting by the fireplace with flames crackling. The Christmas tree, all lighted, is nearby. I'm tired from having a big dinner party but my heart is happy. Everyone has gone home now and I'm going to jump into the whirpool to bubble the rest of the night away and soak my aching muscles.

Take care , Tammy, and have a wonderful weekend. Susan

That picture of Jingles with the book is adorable...love it! Hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends Tammy! ~Deb~

great new family photo too!

Melissa said...

Friends, food and gift giving and good conversation.....can't go wrong with that. Not surprised that you've inspired her to be crafty as you have so many other people. Cute book...looks like Jingles is trying to imitate the kitty on the cover.

Denise said...

Long time no "visit"!! so sorry about that. Thanks so much for dropping by. Jingles looks like he probably pretty much rules the roost at your house. Love your family photo on your header. Those boys are really growing up. so is my grandson.
Merry Christmas!
