Ten years ago, I had a “Friendship Cottage” in my home. I had a huge garage, in an 80 year old house. My friends and I decorated it “Shabby Chic” – chandeliers, lace tablecloths, antique furniture and lots of unique decorations. Twice a week, ladies gathered for tea and pumpkin bread. And we talked, prayed, sang, helped each other and just had fun. No fee. Always a different group. From ages 19 to 90. I would like to “resurrect” the Friendship Cottage. Here is the brochure that describes what the mission was. I think it would be nice to honor my mother’s memory – maybe call it “Claire’s House”. What do you think?
