A Past-Post about a GREAT TIME....

Going back thru past posts can be so much fun..
with the snows, cold air and hanging out pretty close to home,
I took some ME TIME and found the following post from way back in 2010,

I smiled so much reading it, I wanted to share it with my new friends,
and have my old friends take another look.

From Summer of 2010

SISTER IN THE BLOGGERETTE SORORITY...

Let me tell you this is going to be a really FUN EVENT, going on right now, in Blogland...
A SORORITY.....
isn't that great ?

KAREN is hosting this on her delightful blog,
*
As in ALL sororities...there is a thing we've all heard of that is connected to a SORORITY....
RUSH
*
I was in a hurry to get my post up and ready for today's RUSH....
but please know that YOU CAN JOIN IN AT ANYTIME....
Just stop over at KAREN'S and join the fun....
*********
We had to do TWO things for RUSH...
*
#1. we had to take the ADORABLE photo on the above button
and make something CREATIVE with it..
OH DEAR...
I am SO not creative but....
I wanted to join this BLOGGERETTE SORORITY sooooo bad !!
**
SOOO, I thought and thought and thought some more...
"WHAT can I do that will be GOOD enough that THEY won't toss me out on my olden ear??"
*
THEN...I saw my large, thrifted WHITE platter, surrounded by the
BEST black and white checked border....
UH HUH.....I LIKE IT..
I just printed up that cute photo on PHOTO PAPER
and glued it to my platter...NOW...I KNOW this doesn't REALLY qualify as a CRAFT, but....
IT IS SO CUTE, I CAN'T STAND IT...
*

It really does look much cuter than I ever imagined,
sitting all SASSY there on my dining room HUTCH...

I left enough room AROUND the precious photo for SNACKS..so those cutie potooties would show...


So cute to serve COOKIES on....
*

 
BUT....now I need to paint it with SOMEthing to protect the photo...
******
I have NOT A CLUE as to what to use but...
HOBBY LOBBY will know.....right ?
*
Aren't these girls just the cutest !!!

THIS is the way I will use it most of the time...
Just displayed ....
I can already tell that it is going to be a piece that makes me smile....:))
I guess it doesn't take much to make me smile, hu !!
*


I just can't wait to see what all the other SISTERS did with their photo...
It will be a lot of fun to see, so be sure to swing by them all...
KAREN has the list posted right there on her SIDEBAR...
There's going to be a lot of blogging activities going on in this SORORITY...
So PLEASE go over and join up...

  8. Do you still have it? I have not seen it before so perhaps it was before we were blogging buds. So many of the fun things have come and gone. Time to scout around for some fun!

  9. Even though it was from 2010, the only thing I could think to protect the photo is a clear spray protector in a matte/flat finish

  16. BJ,
    I agree that much has changed in the short time since I entered The Land of Blog.
    One thing that remains consistent is the bond of friendships we encounter!!!
    Happy Birthday to DEIDRA!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat
