A Few Pix + I'm Goo-o-o-in to the Chapel.....


Click to embiggen. This is where I worked today; the Pinehurst Hotel, scene of the 2008 Jim Valvano Golf Classic. Here are two photos of flowers we did for the Friday night Gala.

The colors are mostly orange and green.



Mel did this buffet centerpiece.

A friend and I have been church hopping for the last several weeks, trying to find one that we think is a good fit for us. This past Sunday, we went to a nearby United Methodist Church, and she found a few friends and so did I. The Pastor for our service was a bride for whom I did wedding flowers years ago, and her husband is someone I have known since he was 14 (he's now about 40). The last I knew of them, they were at another church but I learned they moved to this one about 4 years ago. This guy was in my son's wedding, but they have lost touch with each other over the years. It was a nice surprise to see both.

His wife was a Youth Pastor the last I knew, so I was surprised to see/hear her preach a sermon to adults, and do a darn good job of it. She used humor, too, which is always a plus for me. I don't know if we'll join this one, but we are going to go back next week and see what happens.

My spell-checker almost had a conniption fit when I sent an email with the words "Tres Vaqueros" and "chimichangas" in it. That's my favorite Mexican restaurant and my favorite thing to eat. Yours, too, huh Alice? Too bad you aren't here to share it with me.


Please Note: I am working hard tomorrow (as well as today and yesterday) and I am not able to visit or comment as much as I'd like. Catch you later!

As long as you've lived here, Judy, I'd have thought you'd have settled on a church already. I guess something must have happened to your old one...

I hope you find one you like---and those flower arrangements are beautiful!

I would go to church more if I knew when it was Sunday. Retirement causes weekdays and weekends to blend.

That centerpiece is so gorgeous. How long does something like that stay pretty?

It looks lovely, Judy.

you said you were going to the chapel... filling in that song, I was wondering if you were taking up polygamy! Aw, the Carolina Inn, you're tramping around in my country now, 'cept my ancestors weren't golfers, just poor tobacco farmers

I know floral designers work so hard but you sure get to work in "very nice spots"

Dianne said...

This is for Granny Annie,

You can always tell it's Sunday because the funnies are in color......

When I see Dagwood Bumstead in a red shirt I head out to church.

Ooooo, Pinehurst... Fancy!

Good luck in your Church search.

Don't work too hard.

Lovely Flowers, as always Judy....Don't work to hard in all the heat, my dear....

I had forgotten that you did Edwards Christmas Tree--(If I knew that...) The thing is, I felt like I thought I knew who he was. Now, I don't know anymore because of that "lie". It is sad, because I do think he is a good man in many ways and I like his wife a lot, from what I know of her. Of course, I don't really know them, but the persona he put forward when trying to get elected was such a devoted family man, etc.
What is it with men? They truly do seemed to be ruled by one organ over everything else...And it's not 'the brain'....lol!

Very nice pictures. Good luck in your search for church.

You mean you're going to be a good girl? Will you still speak to baddies like me?

I have church shopped during several soirees into religion before I slipped back into apathy. I found that here in my little town, the Methodists have the best pot-lucks. I am not suggesting you choose your church in this manner, but it helped me in my half-hearted search.
