Good friendships are fragile things & require as much care as any other fragile & precious things. -Randolph Bourne

We are so fond of one another because our ailments are the same. - Jonathan Swift

We cherish our friends not for their ability to amuse us, but for ours to be amused by them. -Evelyn Waugh

A true friend is the most precious of all possessions and the one we take least thought about acquiring. -La Rochefoucauld
These quotes are taken from a book titled 'Best Friends' that was given to me by a dear, sweet friend. Tonight she & I will laugh, gossip, craft, & hang with our other friends late into the night. I love our crafting nights. I usually arrive late, tired & disorganized. But I come home revived. Full of ideas & memories.

Hope you have a great weekend. Mine will be spent putting the finishing touches on my new studio, stay tuned next week for the big reveal!

Have a wonderful evening with your girlfriends.

WE seldom see Vintage images with girlfriends in them...portraits were such a luxury back then, it was usually reserved for family only.
So really neat to see these.
Thank you so much,
