This is my Aunt karen, she is from Califorina, she and my Aunt Peggy, and my Mom, all came over to help prepare the covadills. We had 31 poeple to feed! This is Aunt Karen showing NIcholas and Zach how to make the Dumplings.
Once the dumplings were prepared I made the sauce and managed to turn my living room and kitchen area into a huge dining area. I found this old map of Italy at junk Bonanza last weekend, I knew that I had to have it!!
Also inspired by something I saw at Junk Bonanza were these vintage style pins, I decided to make them for all the women in my family with pictures of Grandma. They are a wood back, and I printed photos onto cardstock, cut to fit, applied some mod podge to the front and back, added some glitter, buttons and lace. And there you have it vintage pins! I will be making some more for the cousins who were not able to travel home.
Here is me after everything was done!! Can't wait to eat!!
You could say that we had a little bit of food!
The entire night was perfect, I think it would have been exactly what she wanted, all of her family together to celebrate her life.
Uncle Marvin, Aunt Karen, Aunt Peggy, and My Dad.
You will be missed Grandma!!!
