Gee, What a Swell Party!

boneyard logoHi there guys and dolls!  A couple of weeks ago, yours truly had a super duper little shindig thrown by BetsyBean LatteDa and Boneyard Coffee and Tea to celebrate my latest (DEATH OF A BEAUTY QUEEN).  I was tickled that so many of you attended our Cof-Tea-l Party.  Thank you so much — it was such great fun :-)!Heather Cof-Tea-l

Andrea Cof-Tea-lMy alter egos, Andrea Taylor and Heather Shkuratoff dressed for the occasion.   There were some beautiful frocks and fancy dudes around — so glamorous.  We had a very special guest go out and buy a dress for the event, and another baked yummy treats.  I was so busy flitting from one confab to another, relishing my social butterfly role.
