Diva Christmas Party

Today was our Dixie Diva Annual Christmas Party at Bev's house. Oh, how I love my Divas. All 8 of them make me laugh and laugh, and are the dearest of friends.

Bev set a beautiful table. We each placed little gifts around for each other.

Look at this great centerpiece idea.
Who does not have a mixed array of Christmas mugs and cups collected over the years? Bev filled each one with festive candy and nuts.

We had a quilt show and tell, and exchanged presents.
More about that in future posts.
But, I did want to show you this:
Bev read my blog about crocheting the Belle Scarves (post 11/14/10) and has made quite a few for Christmas presents this year. She used the Homespun yarn recommended on the pattern, and they turned out a lot more fluffy than mine.
Now onto the Diva Craziness.
Yes, those Divas make one laugh until the makeup is completely gone.
I need to give a little Diva Christmas History:
  • Last year Margaret told us she had a very important Diva gift, that would only be available to one special lady. We put our names in a hat and Bev was chosen as the lucky recipient to open the most beautifully decorated box.

(Christmas 2009)
  • Inside:The official Diva panties
  • Bev was instructed to "fix up those panties in some special way", and have them available for the following year's drawing.

(Christmas 2010)
Call it Karma. Call it whatever you want. But, what you send out there DOES come back to you.
Margaret's name was pulled from the hat to be the proud "bearer of the Diva panties" during this next year.
Notice Bev's addition of pom poms?
Oh,those Divas.

That is hysterical! I love it!

It reminds me of many years ago when a group of childbirth educators with whom I was associated had a gift that went to whomever was having a birthday at our monthly meetings. The "gift" was a white chocolate molded male, uh, well, use your imagination that was wrapped and re-wrapped in birthday paper as it was passed from person to person at our meetings. Between meetings it lived in the most recent recipient's fridge. This all went along fine for a few years until one of our members retrieved the frozen "gift" to wrap it for the next member and discovered someone had taken a bite out of it. No one in the household 'fessed up, but that was the end of the traveling, uh, chocolate.... ;)

I LOVE the panties!
