One Last Post at Dear Lizzie's

As I looked at this sign over the sandwich counter at Dear Lizzie's, I couldn't help noticing the scalloped border and the bows attached to each hanger.  This reminded me of our new Large Scallop Edgelits ( 127019)  and Tasteful Trim Bigz XL die (115950).  Our First Edition Specialty Designer Paper ( 121878) would be excellent  in making these bows.

Always keep your camera  or phone handy because you never know when and where you are going to find great ideas to use in your paper crafting!

Here is another paper bow accented with an assortment of ribbons.

What a fantastic idea for garland to add that special touch to your next  shower, tea party, or  luncheon.  As you look closer, it is made from items that you all ready have in your pantry:  cupcake liners and doilies.  I immediately thought of all those mixed-matched doilies I had and the Paper Doily Sizzlits L (125592) and Delicate Doilies Sizzlits L (126999).  How quickly and simple  would that be to make!

Just a few more pictures of a sampling of the goodies found in the sandwich shop!

Afternoon Tea at Dear Lizzie's

Shopping and spending money can wear you out.  One needs their nutriment to be successful in doing both!!  Rhonda Smith to the rescue. . . .Afternoon Tea  at Dear Lizzie's

Our tables awaits us stocked with a variety of teas!

And here is Priss all dressed up for her "Coming Out" party!  What a lovely table!!

Hungry shoppers, (Terry Bolender, Jessica Stark, Jennifer Rutkowski, our hostess, Rhonda Smith, me, and Bobbie Meyer) are ready for Afternoon Tea!

After we had selected our tea, an assortment of tea sandwiches were presented.  They tasted as delicious as they look!

Next came the scones with jams and lemon curd, topped with, you guessed it, sugar pearls!  Can't finished a card without our pearls!  Lemon curd and jams are no different!

And to top it all off. . . .the richest chocolate covered almonds and truffles!  We all felt like this picture, we needed to totally rest after all that rich food!!!  We kept telling ourselves, we were on vacation, calories didn't count!!!

What a fabulous ending to the perfect shopping experience!!

Again. thank you Rhonda for helping us make beautiful memories.

More highlights from Salt Lake tomorrow.
