Visiting a Friend in Hot Springs Village

PP Purse 002My dear friend, Pat W., called to check in this past weekend. She had been sick and I haven’t been able to see her. She was the reason we started our button club many years ago. She moved from Texas to Hot Springs Village. She was a wonderful resource for our button club. She is so smart and knows so much. We disbanded a couple of years ago, but we stillpat w. Hot springs 006 keep in touch. She called to tell me she had found a few things for me and if I was in the neighborhood to please call. Well,  thought about it that night and called her back the next day. I go back to school next Tuesday, so we made plans to eat at Molly O’Brien’s close to the Balboa Gate Thursday. Taco Wednesday Debbie needed to go to a store there so we went together. We had a good visit and got there a little early. Pat W. came and we had the best lunch. I think both the gals enjoyed each other. What Pat W. hadat W 1 brought was a shop hop fabric game, a block of the month Christmas quilt pattern book, a turquoise glass fish bottle, a feed sack, a large piece of Heifer International fabric, a quilt top and a purse with a petit point handle. Everything was simply a wonderful surprise!!!!HS 1 After we left and pick up Debbie’s thing we went to the Central Market Antique Store on Central Avenue. I found a Victorian brass frame, a 1950’s ceramic candle holder, and a metal filigree tooth-brush holder to make a scissor holder out of. We had a great day! I came home and took a nap and then cooked turkey and rice w. 2
