What to do Weekends #216

Welcome to Shoestring Elegance and the What to do Weekends Party! 
Friends, Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart for all your kind words and support last week. It has been a difficult time to navigate.
 Tonight I am going out to a wonderful local restaurant, that my friend loved, to celebrate his life and laugh with other friends. It is what he always said he wanted and I am taking great comfort that my dear friend's suffering is over and he is now with our Heavenly Father. so, that's me this week.

On the other hand, you all have been crazy busy getting creating and I want to be sure and shine a light on just a few of you that made me smile and inspired me last week.

On a private note, Bruce my dear friend of 49 years, I miss you. Thanks for the love and friendship. Rest now, Our Father has you.

Hi, friends!  I hope your 2017 is going just as you desire.  It's been a crazy, but wonderful week, so much going on with my family right now, I must apologize I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to work on the party and visit you all as much as  I usually do. That being said I'm going to highlight a couple of my faves tonight and hope to update this post with more features in the next couple of days. You are all such an inspiration to me that you can make it through all the holidays and activities of the new year and get so much done on your blogs! I must confess, I am not equal to your talents.

I Love JP from Sweet Inspirations super fun and pretty  Black Check and Red New Year's Table
