Diva Day Brunch

 My Home Town, Clarksville,Mo.  about 70 miles from St.Louis and a few miles from no where ,is a small town of 436 people ,and it is nestled on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi River. We are a Historic Town, founded in 1817. It was named after the famous explorer, Clark from the team of Lewis and Clark. My house, The 1845 Historic Elgin/Cottrell House Museum is the oldest and grandest in this small town. It was built by Hazekiah Elgin  whose ancestors came  to America on the Mayflowe,.  and  fought in the Revolutionary  War with George Washington.
    We depend so much on Tourist to support out town. We have several antique shops and a large array  of resident Artist, galleries and Studios.  We have several festivals and events each year ,in hopes to bring tourist to out town. One event is Diva Day. It is an event designed to pamper women. Free gifts, t-shirts and Diva shopping bags are given as prizes. Woman are invited to come and hopefully shop. Today is Diva Day. A member of the local Chamber Of Commerce  hosted a kick off brunch at my house this morning. His hope was to bring people to do Diva day and  tour my  house. Each person was asked to give donation for a beautiful brunch and endless mimosas. We had a nice turn out. People enjoyed the food, drink tour and companionship.
   I used a lot of silver and crystal on the table. Garden flowers were everywhere, Some people dressed in period dresses, which added to the fun of the event. I had to get up at 5:00 this morning to  get it all ready. I think the table and the food were simply Divine.When every one left I had to run and open the shop.
   I wish you all could come and have a mimosas and some brunch. I will leave the lights on and of course, Sissy Dog will meet you with a jump and a kiss.
      BE A DIVA !.
