Crafting, Cupcakes and Champagne at a Mansion with Elyse Major

Last Thursday my friend Joyce and I drove to Bristol, Rhode Island to visit Blithewold Mansion to attend a wonderful event. Crafting Night at the Mansion with Author and Tinkered Treasurer Elyse Major.

I met Elyse Major in 2008 through blogging.  I instantly fell in love with her style on her beautiful blog called Tinkered Treasures.

You know her because in almost every magazine I pick up lately, Elyse has contributed to the magazine with her gifted writing and crafting.

When we walked in the door of Blithewold, Elyse greeted us, and gave me a gift that she made for me.  One of her dolls and she showed me how she even got my hair to look just like mine.  Isn't she adorable?  I will surely treasure her forever!  Thank you Elyse.

Once we walked into the room we were totally smitten.  There was a buffet table set up with the prettiest craft supplies.

On another table were stacks of  Elyse's books, Tinkered Treasures and Seaside Tinkered Treasures.

A tower of scrumptious cupcakes decorated with beautiful designs made the perfect accessory and treat while crafting.

Champagne was served and after a short demonstration we were all busy crafting and enjoying being in such a magnificent tea room with lovely kindred spirits.

You can find Elyse on Tinkered Treasures Facebook page.
We were fortunate to get a preview of Christmas at the Blithewold, which will open on November 27th.

Thank you so much Elyse, we had such a lovely evening.  Thank you Joyce for photographing us for the perfect keepsake.
