Forget the Tea and Bring on the Lemonade!







On my May visit to St. Joseph MO to see my bff and my new friends, Donna and Charley, I got to make my 2nd visit to a wonderful Tea Room and Eatery called the Gothic House. Kathy and Donna's friend, Pat McNaughten is the proprietress of this awesome establishment! She makes you feel so welcome. You can tell she has a passion for what she is doing. She has so many great ideas and wonderful visions for this old house turned Tea Room.
The rooms are decorated so beautifully with victorian things and each place is set perfectly! Just sitting in the Gothic House makes you wish you could turn back the clock and just live there!
The Eatery is only open for lunch, but the food is incredible. The meal begins with a fresh, warm, "melt in your mouth" scone with home made lemon curd! I chose soup, which happens to be Pat's speciality, so whatever kind you get, it will knock your socks off. We passed on the tea but ordered Pat's special Lemonade, made with cream and soda...yum...probably the best ever drink Ive ever had... If you make a trip to St. Joe MO you must go there!

Congratulations Kira!


This is my beautiful grand daughter, Kira Marie. She graduated from High School a couple weeks ago. It was such a fun time getting to go watch the ceremony and attend a party for her in Abilene, Kansas. This is the quilt I made her. It blesses me that she loves it so much. She said " O Grandma, its so "me"!" Jen, Kira and Dalton stopped thru on Monday night, on their way to Washington DC to meet up with Brian. She actually had the quilt in the car with her. She said she sleeps with it every night. How sweet. I sometimes wish she was closer, as I think I could turn her into a quilter...Way back when she was only about 7 or 8, she and I "quilted" a pillow cover for her mom as a gift. I noticed that Jen still has it and proudly displays it on an old high chair.
So Brian's family is now in Washington DC. Kira will go to College in California. Dustin is in college down south somewhere and Dalton enters his senior year of hs this fall. Where does the time go?
