Happy Tuesday: Mother's Day Lunch


Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

Last Friday, May 12, my husband and I took a day trip east to

To meet our Daughter  aka Favorite Sis of Angel Madi for an early Mother's Day Lunch

Our destination was

Kinston is half way between our house and our daughter's

70 miles one way

Peach House Café

This is my 2nd favorite café..of course Seaboard Café is #1

What a happy welcoming entrance and front porch

The interior was decorated with warm colors and photo furniture

It was very busy; however, we found a nice table on the 2nd floor in front of the side table.
I love the color of the walls.

The food was absolutely delicious
It is about 75 miles from home so we won't go often but we will go

My daughter ordered a box of my favorite cookies from Carolina Cookie Company they were delivered to our home.

Needless to say my Mother's Day was wonderful

At Christmas when she and my son in law were visiting, my daughter told me how much she liked one of my wall hangings with appliqued kitty heads. Of course,  I made them two.  This one is in her favorite colors of navy, green and gold which looks very nice with their wall colors.  I finished it several weeks ago.  I was happy it was ready.  My son-in-law hung the rod last weekend.  It  is hanging on a wall above their foyer


  1. So pleased to hear about your lovely day out and lunch with Sis of Angel Madi. Is that a hydrangea I see in bloom? The two in my garden are only just coming into leaf!
    Cheers, Gail.
