Last night saw us out to dinner with friends as our pal Graeme was celebrating a milestone birthday ... can't tell you which one because then I might have to kill you .. and that would never do! We went to a Thai restaurant that we've not been to in a while. Lovely evening, super meal (and way too much of it) and a birthday gift from the restaurant too.

Have a great weekend

Such a wonderfully elegant design Kathy. That peacock feather stamp is super and you've used the challenge colours perfectly. Love how you echoed the colours in the matting too. Looks like you had a fantastic meal (Thai is one of my favourites). Will have to get the name of that restaurant so I can take my daughter next time I'm at her place as I think you both live in the same neck of the woods, so to speak.
Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More.
