IT'S PARTY TIME!



Greetings, dear readers! How wonderful of you to come! Welcome to the party! My rose garden welcomes you! Have you been to Vanessa's party yet? OH MY GOODNESS! It's all so AMAZING!

I have the table ready for you...



And look at this fantasy cake! Isn't it marvelous?



This is me at the beach with my mersisters. (I'm the one on the end...NO, the OTHER end!) The FABulous party hats were made by the amazing Collage Diva.

Our travel companion had to (OF COURSE) get into the shot...and although he comes from the womb WITH a built-in party hat, these lovelies were just too good to pass up! He couldn't resist!


(Although I got my tail back from the dry cleaners, my wings were still being touched up...alas, today I shall party as a mermaid without wings) le sigh...

Anyway, welcome to the party! Look at all the party goodies awaiting you!











YAY! I have the grill warming up and the food ready to cook! I'm going to soak in the hot tub while I wait for you to get here...come on around back! The hot tub is hot and bubbling, and the barbecue is ready. Come on in, the water's fine! (This is my imaginary me...but this is my REAL LIFE hot tub!)




I'll be back later to post how to win some of the fabulous giveaways!

More soon!

Paula

I've missed reading your blog!! Since I have to pay at an internet cafe at the moment, and I am supposed to be using the time to look for a home, I just wanted to say a quick hello! (Don't tell Paul I am spending the internet money on reading blogs! wink wink)

KathrynAntyr said...

Yeah! I just love the music! I am dancing over here. I'm so happy that you stopped by my tea party. Your cakes and goodies look so good. I'll meet you in the hot tub.

I thought I would come back to visit the merladies and party hats. I just notice the gnome with the hat. Haaaaaa! I absolutely adore gnomes. This is just too funny. Ironically, I don't own a single gnome but I do adore them. It made me extra happy to see that little guy hanging out with the lovely merladies. Thanks for the smiles!
