Farewell to Friends

This week I got two new items to add to my pink kitchen (which seems to be the theme of late.) I recently posted about my farewell gifts from my military unit on my military life blog at my farewell luncheon on March 23. On March 25 Misty, the Rear Det Cdr who became a close friend of mine joined me for a final lunch farewell at the painting pottery place in the nearby community. It was a great way end my days there. Anyway, she painted a cute red, white and blue heart-shaped icecream bowl, but I didn't get a picture. I painted this cute flower plate.



On Thursday, I stopped by the office to finish my clearing papers (you clear your unit every time you leave, Soldiers also have to clear the installtion when they leave as well). Misty said she had a gift for me, so I met her in her office and this is what she gave me ...



It also had a sweet personal message on the back. I am so excited to put this in our new house (we are moving the week after Easter.)

Until our next cup of tea ...

Hi Michelle,
your square plate is precious. And I loved the plate that you made to match the set from last weeks post. I'll have to try my hand at that. I'm sure we must have a ceramic studio here in San Antonio somewhere...LOL!

You lucky girl! You have a hubby who treats you to clothes shopping and goes with you to Michaels. I thought I was the only one with a hubby like that! Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi again, thanks for the sweet comment on our little angel, I can garantee, I'd hate to be the boy that messes with her, she was a 19 yr old brother, that they have to get past first...he is very protective of her. lol...then there's Daddy, enough said..lol...
I found the saying that was on the Wall at Fort Benning, I will post it one day this week.Chuck's

The plate you painted is a keepsake for sure and the gift your received was most certainly from the heart. Happy Pink Saturday to you, Char
