Ladies who lunch

fun and laughter.............

Friends are the gardeners of life who make our souls blossom!

What a darling "Ladies Who Lunch" plate! Is that where you got the name of your blog? Or was it the other way around, first you named the blog, then you found the plate? So cute! I love how the lime in the water glass speaks to the green on the plate. Nice detail!
