 Yes ~ that's what we had yesterday at our friend, Lori Corelis' home!!!  She had three of us in for brunch ~ a yummy asparagus strata, scones, fresh fruit and a spring green salad!!!  A little mimosa started the day!!!   These great stitched pieces are projects from Workt by Hand, that she and her sister Lanna attended recently!  One is from last year, but the circles are this year's stitchery!  LOVE the colors!

Lori and her husband, have a great house with lots of collections!  This one is a gathering of  'peck peck birds'!  None of us had ever seen any and here is a whole flock of them!!  They wind up and peck and jump around ~ great little pieces made from mohair as I remember!! 

Sherry brought us all curly willow branches to share ~ I haven't seen those either!!  It's amazing what I don't know about!!  They looked great in this crock ~ we should have left them all ~ but we didn't!!

This is a little part of Lori's studio ~ she's a very well-known bear designer and creates wonderful things right here in this room, that is a work of art in itself!!

We had a great day and thank you, Lori, for letting me take a few pix to commemorate our get together!  Our other friend is Pat Knapp ~ she and her husband owned The Village Idiot Antique Shop for many years ~ always a delight to be with and a wealth of knowledge about primitives!!  

Okay ~ I'm off ~ there's just more fun to be had than I can handle!!  Ta ta for now friends!!

The stitchery looks like so much fun and the colors are so nice and rich.
You seem to have all the fun and the food sounds so tasty.
Do they really make all those birds?

Have a great rest of the week.

The birds are antiques ~ maybe German ~

I've seen those curly branches but just didn't know what I'd do with them...I like them in the crock.

Hey Alice, Thank for the nice comment and for reminding me to get back here - I am so far behind on my blog and everyone else's. LOVE these stitched pieces like the other commenters - another black hole into which I would gladly tumble. Enjoy the spring (finally) and all the lunches that go with it. Wendie
