The Honeybees

Dollie DeVille, over at The Rockabilly Socialite, and I have started a ladies club in our area. We are two like minded gals who have shared a lot with one another on Facebook and through Blogger. We have also known each other out and about in the scene, but had never really had a chance to hang out. We finally decided, on Facebook, to get together and start baking and doing craft projects...then the idea of The Honeybees Ladies Club was born! The idea behind our club is that we'd be a social, hobby, and service organization made up of classy vintage ladies. Whereby we'd promote bygone “woman skills” of another era through social gatherings, crafting, and baking. We are still in the process of formulating all the aspects of the club and recruiting members, but we have already had our first meeting!! We decided to get together to do some holiday baking for our Honey Bears. Three of our four members met up at Dollie's house to bake three types of cookies and to start crafting on some holiday projects. The day was filled with tips and tricks, plus we got to know one another better.

Our club so far has four members:
Dollie DeVille: Dollie is the founder and Queen Bee of The Honeybees Ladies Club, but she is better known as The Rockabilly Socialite. Her history as a blogger helps her in her presidential duties of the club. When she is not crafting and baking, she spends her free time with her husband-to-be Zack Simpson seeing rockabilly bands, jiving, and finding pieces for her perfect vintage wardrobe.
Reagan Foy: Reagan is the co-founder and vice president of The Honeybees Ladies Club. We so lovingly call her the Lil' Suzie Homemaker Bee because she's always whipping up some fantastic vintage inspired dresses, hats, baking, working on her new house or crocheting. Maybe you have read her blog, Lil’ Vintage Homemaker. If so, you know that she is a perfect fit for The Honeybees Ladies Club. When this busy bee isn't working on some new project she enjoys spending time with her Honey Bear, Brian Jay and their two little pups who keep her laughing and young.
 Sandra Sprague: Sandra is a world traveler. Her and her musician husband Chris Sprague really get around. When she comes home she brings us tips and tricks from all over the world, making her an invaluable member to the club. We love her worldly cuisine and extensive knowledge of vintage collectables!
Amber Foxx: Amber is our newest member. When she is not singing with her all star band she likes to cuddle up with her pups and her Husband Bobby Cavener. She basically invented cake pops, which makes her the bee’s knees in our eyes! We always go to Amber with hair and makeup questions, because she is the pro!

We had a blast at our first meeting and we are looking forward to so much more!! Here are some photos I got from our event...of course I'm behind the camera but hopefully I can snag some more from Miss Dollie soon to share! Also check us out and like us over at our Facebook page to keep posted on what we are up to and to get more tips and tricks from us!
