2008 / 2009 Jewels of DeLite Outings
HAPPY BIRTHDAY - January 26, 2008
Our first outing was held at Phyllis Smith's home. Special Thanks to Phyllis for opening up your home to us again. Phyllis left here Christmas tree up for our gathering. Look at all those gifts under the tree. What fun that was. We were having our belated Christmas party, then celebrating the Jewels of DeLite 3rd birthday, Melissa's birthday(this was actually her birthday), Mary Sharp's birthday and Phyllis Smith's birthday.
Here is another view of the tree and the room.
Isn't this a pretty cake? All our colors. Thanks Darlene for getting it for us.
I caught a cute picture of Darlene, Betty & Melissa while they were have a little chat.
After a nice lunch, it was time to work on our schedule for the up coming year. I was so pleased. We ended up scheduling at least one thing for each month. Looks like Kathe, Darlene and Phyllis Rose are taking notes and discussing things.
After our business part of the day was finished, now comes the fun part - Present Time. We first had our Birthday girls, Melissa & Phyllis open their birthday gifts their sisters brought them.
More Birthday gifts to open. It's so much fun!
Then it was time to do our gift exchange. We drew numbers and then took turns picking a gift from the middle of the floor. It was an exchange that when your number came up, you could choose someone else's that had already opened theirs, but no one ended up doing that. Here Betty was unwrapping the gift she chose.
After the gift exchange was over, other gifts were passed out. What fun! Thanks everyone for all the goodies.
What a great looking group. Mary our Queen of Vice took the picture for us.
Then I asked Mary to take my picture. She did a good job. Thanks.
As everyone was gathering up their things to go for the day, Phyllis and Betty were having a nice chat, so I interupted them for a photo opt. Thanks again Phyllis for the use of your house. Happy Birthday Jewels of DeLite, Melissa, Mary & Phyllis
I think everyone really enjoyed the afternoon together and to quote our Queen of Vice Mary - "The gifts were all wonderful but the "togetherness" was priceless!"
Mardi Gras - Tuesday, February 5, 2008
What a fun evening we had. Red Hat Mardi Gras in Greenville, PA at the VFW. Here I am at the beginning of the night. I brought my WebKinz Love Frog, Smacks. She needed a night out too.
Here is our group - Darlene, Priscilla, Kathe & Phyllis Rose.
Here is Smacks on a boa and ready to play the kazoo and the light wand.
Kathe's mask was getting to hot so she slipped it to the back of her head. Her halo of feathers.
A view of the room with all the Red Hatters ready to have fun.
Time for dinner. So where is the end of the line?
After dinner the entertainment started. Here Kathe, Darlene & Phyllis Rose were playing kazoos and waving light wands to the music.
Here are some of us doing the Chicken Dance. That was fun.
The next dance was the Macarena. We made the front page of the Greenville Record Argus with this dance.
And here is a copy of that front page. In the front row is Erika Daisley, Priscilla Sharp & Mary Ann Marshall & then right behind Erika is our own Divalicious Darlene.
Darlene had a very long day. She was in Chicago at noon this day but still managed to come out and have fun with us. I think she was reaching the delirious stage here. LOL
Kathe & Darlene decided to cut a rug.
A view of others that were doing the polka.
Here is the whole group who partied at Mardi Gras
Mexican Craft Day - Saturday, February 23, 2008
We met at Darlene's home at 11 AM for the start of a wonderful afternoon together. We first went over some business of up & coming events. The Mexican part of our day was our lunch. Everyone brought something to go with making tacos, nachos, taco salad. It worked out really well.
While we were sitting talking after eating, someone said now it was siesta time, well, Betty didn't feel like making our craft so she sat in one of the comfortable chairs and pretended to take a siesta.
Our craft for the day was making cards. Melissa brought supplies to make 2 stamped cards, one had the bees and one the bear. I took supplies to do 2 Red Hat designs and Kathe brought supplies do do Easter or any kind they needed. Here is Melissa, Phyllis & Phyllis Rose working on cards.
Here is Darlene, Gert & Kathe working on cards.
Everyone busy doing cards.
I think we were starting to clean up here. Take a break to look up and SMILE!!
Here is the whole group together. Thanks Harley for taking the pictures.
Here we are with our Smiley Cookies from Eat n' Park. I'm going to send the picture in and see if they use it in their flyer. We could win $50 if they do. AND WE DID GET PUBLISHED IN THEIR MARCH NEWSLETTER - YAHOO!!
Bite off that Bunny Ear!!
We had so much fun. Special Thanks to Darlene for hosting us at her home once again. We love that new room. Special Thanks to Melissa and Kathe for bringing the card supplies and being our instructors for the afternoon.
Game Day - Saturday, March 15, 2008
We met at 11 AM at Gert's home. After a bit of talking we decide to eat first. Phyllis & Keith made a very good soup, Gert had made BBQ pork for sandwiches and everyone brought bits to put together for a great salad and for dessert Melissa brought Angel food cake with strawberries to go on top, Mm mm good.
Here is the crew gathered around getting ready to eat.
Darlene & Phyllis Rose
Here is Kathe, Betty, Melissa & Grace between eating and starting the games.
Gert had Jelly Belly jellybeans in a couple different bowls that we all were enjoying. Here Melissa was sharing her Jelly Bellys with Betty
We took our group picture before we started our games, since Darlene had to leave early.
Although we had several games we could have played, we started out with Pictionary and were having so much fun with it, we played it the entire time. Here is Melissa drawing her word "Grandfather"
Here is Phyllis Rose with her drawing of the word "Takeoff"
And here is Phyllis with her drawing of her word "Bathroom"
Here is Kathe with her word "Point"
And Gert with her word "Forearm"
Grace's word was something to do with a bird, I'll have to ask her and get back to you.
And my word was an action word, didn't know how to do it, but they finally got it, it was "Frisk"
Here is Princess Melissa in her new hat she finished that morning and Queen Priscilla
TEA - Monday, March 17, 2008
Yes, it was St Patrick's Day but it wasn't specifically a Tea about that. Last year we all attended a Tea that benifitted the Stateline Cemetary Association. Well they weren't doing one this year but Lois Bates who was in charge of it invited us this year to come to her church, The First United Methodist Church in Warren, they were having a Tea. Well it ended up being only 3 of us that went but the others really missed a great time. The theme was The Seasons of Life.
Lois' table was the Wedding Season. That is where we sat.
The table was very pretty, the center had all kinds of wedding pictures and other items representing things in a wedding.
Here is another table that was neat. The table looked like it had water all over it and sea shells and light houses.
This was a 50's-60's theme. Each table was different and each hostess had different favors and food.
Here is one more table, done in a Victorian theme. She had really cute little picture frames as the favors.
We viewed all the tables and then went up to the beautiful Sanctuary where the program took place. The entertainment was a woman named Tia Ciferno and she talked and sang songs that she had composed. It was wonderful. She has a beautiful voice and her songs were wonderful.
After the program we came back to the room and had our Tea. It was so nice. Here we are - Betty, Priscilla & Phyllis Rose. Thanks Lois for inviting us. Hope to do it again next year.
Saturday, April 5, 2008
We had a lovely time today. We first met at Thiel College at 2PM and saw a very funny play called "I Love you, Your Perfect, Now Change" They did a great job on the play. Afterwards we went to 3 Sisters Coffee House for a drink and or dessert. We are at the Coffee House in this picture.
We have the Birthday Girls here. Mary and Kathe both have birthday's in April, 2 days apart and Grace's birthday is next month in May. Don't they look smashing?
Red Hat Birthday Party - Monday, April 14, 2008
We were invited to join the Red Vibes and the Hadley Hatters for the Red Hat Society's 10th Birthday party. Our theme this year is a Decade of Sparkle. Here is a view of the room at Carini's in Greenville, where we met. We hat about 25 ladies show up. We each brought a wrapped White Elephant and after dinner we each got to choose a gift. They played the game where you can steal a gift already open if you like. Some did, some didn't.
Here is Kathe, Darlene and my Mom, Betty, at our table. I think we were done eating by this time.
Here is Phyllis and Gert. Not sure of the ladies name that Gert is talking to.
One of the tables of ladies. I should have gotten everyones names, but I didn't. I think this group is from the Red Vibes.
Here is Mernee McElhinney and Judy Beuchat, the Queen and Vice Queen of the Red Vibes and I don't know the other ladies name.
Here is Sharon Pachis, the Queen of the Hadley Hatters and some of her ladies. They got together and all made purple hats to wear this year since the Exhaulted Queen Mother, Sue Ellen Cooper, declared that we could switch our colors all this year, not just our birthday month.
Here are the rest of the Hadley Hatters. Sorry I don't know all their names either.
Gert took this picture of me, since I was taking pictures of everyone else. You know you don't get in the pictures when you are taking them. LOL
We did get a nice group picture taken in front of the fire place before we left for the evening. Fuzzy Pickles!!
Hartville - Saturday, May 3, 2008
We met with 3 other Red Hat groups down at the Fleamartket for a couple hours of shopping. I guess I was too busy shopping to think about taking pictures of us shopping. LOL But we all met up at the Hartville Kitchen for a wonderful lunch. Here is Grace and myself before our food came. Oh it was so good.

Saturday, June 7, 2008 - HAPPY FEET @ Jamestown SoapWorks
The theme of this years Happy Feet is "The Sweet Life". Jan ask us all to come out to the side yard and spread our wings. Well as we were headed out I noticed this beautiful butterfly with it's spread wings on a late blooming Lilac. Two of my favorite things, Lilac and butterflies.
A couple of us were asked to get the bubbles blowing and the others were to catch a bubble and as they did were to yell out a childhood dream or wish.
More wishes being caught. It was a lot of fun. I think we would have done it a lot longer but it was a very hot & humid day and we were starting to get tired in the heat.
What fun it is to play with bubbles! Here Darlene, Kathe and Phyllis blow some bubbles.
One last bubble from Phyllis
Before we started to soak our feet we all had bubbles to play with so we got them flying in the air. We had 9 there for Happy Feet. Around the room was Kathe, Darlene, Mariah, Mary, Phyllis, Betty, Phyllis Rose and Grace. And I'm taking the picture of course.
A small thank you to Jan for doing these Happy Feet at Jamestown SoapWorks for us. We really appreciate them. I know my feet look forward to them.
Saturday, July 12, 2008 - HAPPY FEET @ Jamestown SoapWorks
Our day started at Kathe's home with a Craft Card Making time. Some of us worked on Christmas in July cards, a couple birthday cards were made and a wedding card too. Here are Betty and Phyllis Rose working on cards.
This is Phyllis being creative. She made birthday cards for her grandchildren. They were really nice.
Show off!! The cards everyone made were so pretty, very creative. Here are Phyllis, Kathe, Betty and Phyllis Rose holding some of the cards made before we headed out to Happy Feet.
Happy Birthday to ME!! LOL When we arrived at Jamestown Soapworks the place was all decorated for my birthday. Balloons, streamers, signs, presents. Thanks ladies, especially Mary.
Inside was this pretty Pink Hat cake. A creation of Mary and Mariah's Thanks ladies, it was beautiful and very tasty.
Jan had a couple games for us to play. This is Phyllis Rose playing Pin the Feather on the Hat. Each hat had a name on it and you had to find the hat with your own name on it. It was fun. Everyone had a turn.
Then we had a Pinata to try and break open. This is Grace giving it a try. I think we each had 2 turns to hit it 3 times each. We got to giggling so much and then swinging the pinata so that it wouldn't be hit. Made it hard to break it so we got to cheating to...someone started poking it from the bottom. LOL Fun was had by all. Once it was broke there was candy inside, along with products from Soapworks. I think everyone got something from the pinata along with the candy.
After playing games inside, we headed outside to eat. After we finished eating I started to open all the lovely gifts all my ladies brought for me. Who doesn't like to open presents? LOL
Just showing off more gifts.
After all that fun we actually soaked our feet and got them all nice and soft until next month when we have another Happy Feet.
Saturday, July 26, 2008 - Rocking for Epilepsy Awareness & Support - Cracker Barrel - Austintown, OH
We arrived a little early. We were scheduled to rock between 2 & 3. We got there about 1:20. Saw some familiar faces rocking already. Ladies from the Red Hot Flames & Ruby Red Divas.
More ladies from the Red Hot Flames
Then I walked around and found more ladies from the Sparkling Red Hearts
This is Betty and Vonda sitting waiting till our time. Vonda is my neighbor and I asked her if she would like to come rock with us. We rock and talk on her porch in her rocking chairs.
Melissa was the first to sit down and start rocking.
Then we all sat down and rocked and talked and laughed. Cracker Barrel ladies kept coming out and handing out goodies to us and then there were clowns there that were entertaining. It was a lot of fun. After our rocking time was up, we went inside Cracker Barrel and had something to eat and talked and laughed some more. It was a good day.
Saturday, August 23, 2008
Before our time for Happy Feet at Jamestown Soap Works, we had a craft time at Kathe's home. We played with polymer clay. It was fun. In this picture you can see Katie Maloney (Mary's granddaughter), Phyllis Rose, Kathe and Darlene.
Mariah brought her girls to play with the clay. This is Shaila, Meaera & Mariah Shannon. And then Darla joined us for playing also, she is a friend of Kathe's.
Here is Phyllis Rose, Kathe & Darlene
This is a close up of the beads Phyllis Rose was working on. We thought they looked like candy.
After we had our craft time, it was time for Happy Feet. I didn't take many pictures this day. It was a bad day for me. My Precious was missing. We did find her so it was all good in the end. Just a really rough 55 hours for me and I'm sure her too. Anyway, this is Mom, Betty after our foot soak. Kathe had gotten a little birthday cake for her. It's there on the table with a smiley face on it. We sang Happy Birthday to her and the ladies had given her gifts back at Kathe's house.
Here is Betty and Kathe after we sang Happy Birthday to Mom.
In September two of our lady Jewels, Mary & Grace, took a trip down south to Myrtle Beach and met up with a group from Myrtle Beach. The groups name is Red Hat Tamales of Myrtle Beach and their Queen is Jennie. This is Grace with Mary, Kathy, Gerri and the Queen Mum Jennie that came out to play that day.
HATS - Sunday, September 28, 2008
Grace and I went to see HATS the musical on September 28th along with 13 other ladies from our area. It was in Sandusky, OH. The theater was full of red and purple. We enjoyed the day and the play very much.
I drove my van and 4 other ladies joined Grace and me on our journey. This is a picture of the ladies. Jane Rhodes from the Bodacious Ruby Cuties, Reba Gizdic from the Bodacious Ruby Cuties & Red Hat Mamas, Boe Knight from the Red Hat Mamas and Betty Stubert, Queen of the Bodacious Ruby Cuties. All wonderful ladies. We had a nice trip together.
On our way home from the play, we stopped off at Cracker Barrel in Austintown and had dinner. This is Grace and me after eating and paying our bill. We are ready to go home. It's been a very enjoyable day but a long day.
Japanese Photo Day - Saturday, October 25, 2008
We all met at the Olan Mills in Niles for a fun Photo section. We each had our individual photos done and then a group picture. When they come back, I'll have to share them with you. Everyone looked beautiful. After our glamour shots, we headed over to Sakura's Japanese Steakhouse.

Then off to Myrna's.

We had planned a surprise birthday party for Jan whos birthday is the 28th of July. But since our Happy Feet was canceled we just had to change our plans a bit. We went out to Soap Works and surprised her with gifts anyway. Here is Jan opening a pretty hummingbird flag.
Here is Jan with a pretty wind chime. I think she was surprised. LOL
August 2009 Happy Feet/Birthday
Guess who's birthday was in August - Yep, Baroness Betty's 89th Birthday.
Here the birthday girl is sitting with Vonda Overfield. She lives across the street from us in the summer and in Florida in the winter. This was just before she left for Florida.
After another great lunch that Jan made for us, it was time for making our feet happy. Mariah is filling Mary's foot bath with nice warm water. Darlene is already soaking away.
After a nice long soak in the peppermint salts, it's time to use the shea butter and salt to take off all the dead skin and soften those tootsies. It looks like Mary is ready to spray Mariah, I see her with the hose.
Vonda and Priscilla

This month it was Phyllis Rose and Darlene's birthday. Darlene was off on a cruise, but it was time for Phyllis Rose to wear her purple hat and red clothes. On your birthday month, you can switch your colors and wear a purple hat instead of a red one.
We had a Pot Luck Lunch this time. There is always lots of very good food.

The Scarf Lady ~ October 3, 2009
Boe had us come to the Community Center where she lives for this outing. It's a wonderful place. We will have to take advantage of it again. But Boe's friend Alice does a scarf demonstration that is great and she had Alice come this day. This is Darlene, Alice and Kathe talking.
Before we even got things ready, Alice was helping with tying a straight bow. Here Phyllis Rose and Darlene and giving it a try.
After a great lunch, pot luck, we sat down and Alice started showing us all kinds of different ways to use different size scarves.
Here are Darlene, Kathe, Reba and Boe awaiting the next instructions from Alice.
Phyllis Rose was proud of her scarf creation around her neck.
Darlene was trying one that you use on your head and it won't blow off, even when riding out in the air.
Here Alice uses a large scarf and actually makes a dress or beach cover-up.
Our group picture that Mary took for us.
And a closer look at our great group. Alice and Betty are down front, with Priscilla, Boe, Reba and Darlene in the next row and Phyllis Rose and Kathe in back.
Autumn Tea ~ October 17, 2009
The Stateline Cemetery Association put on another great tea this year. They had a Chinese Auction with lots of great things. I think our table won 4 of the items.
I think we all enjoyed this tea. They certainly keep bringing the food until you can't eat anymore. Here is Phyllis Rose, Kathe, Grace and Mariah's mother-in-law Mrs. Shannon.
On the other side of the table we have Mom's friend Janet, Betty, Shaila, Mariah and Meaera.
Our whole group at our table. They have Red Hat tea cups that they use when we come. Makes us feel special.
Mom and Me
Part of the entertainment was this lovely lady who played the Hammered Dulcimer. Afterwards she asked if anyone would like to give it a try. So guess what, I did. It was fun.
Phyllis Rose also gave the hammered dulcimer a try.
Halloween Party ~ October 31, 2009

Here was the begining of the punch. An icy brain, hands and gummy worms coming out of ice cubes. YUM!!
Everyone brought a dish to share. We had all kinds of food. It was great.
This was a Spooky Graveyard that I made. YUMMY!!
Some of the ladies relaxing after a great lunch and getting ready for some fun games.
This is the whole group. So many cute costumes. Anne won first place for her Princess outfit and Grace came in second with her pirate.
Recycled Christmas Cards ~ November 14, 2009
Kathe opened her home again to us this year for our Recycled Christmas Card Party. Here we are, starting to get things together to creat new Christmas cards from old cards. Kathe gives lots of tips on creating. I think she is helping Grace here.
Creative juices are starting to flow. Here Gert, Phyllis Rose, Darlene, Grace and Reba are getting started in creating Christmas cards.
Look at all the supplies to choose from. Kathe is generous enough to share all her supplies with us. Everyone brings things they have to share.
Phyllis Rose thought since I was taking pictures of everyone working, she would take a picture of me at work.
Here is the whole group holding one of their creations. Down in front is Phyllis Rose, Reba and Kathe. Betty is sitting in the chair with Priscilla, Grace, Darlene and Gert behind her.
Shoebox Christmas ~ December 5, 2009
We had our Shoebox Christmas at Darlene's home. Thank you Darlene. After we got there Betty found her favorite chair and got all covered up and looked comfortable.
Guess who has been NAUGHTY this year.
Here is Grace, Betty and Phyllis Rose relaxing while we wait for the last ones to come.
We had a small group, but lots of great food. Here is Darlene, Reba, Phyllis Rose, Grace and Betty.
Here is Reba in front of the Christmas tree.
Mom & Me
We had a great fire burning in the fireplace. So cozy. Before we left for the day, we exchanged our Shoeboxes and talked about things we wanted to do next year.
