and a delicious breakfast, shared with MR. SWEET..
shining up this tray to be used on this fine morning...
I always say, "A girl can't have too many SHOES or too many TRAYS!!"
be it 4th of July or ANYtime..just a pretty summertime combo to me..
that belonged to Mom....
I use it more to hold candles than anything else..
I'm not sure just where I got them...HOBBY LOBBY, maybe ?
I think I told you once about her letting me eat from these beautiful plates
when I was very young because...
I didn't like my food touching...
I still am not crazy about it, either !!
I LOVE THAT !!...so, of course, I had to find some bottles
and put a few fronds of BOSTON FERN in them for my morning table...(no asparagus fern around my place)
Now I am on the search for a tall vintage MILK bottle...
well...I'd even like a reproduction and I'll bet I can find one of those a lot easier !
It sure would look great with fern or wild flowers....
(boy...talk about shallow!!) (awww...it's just all for fun, anyway!! ) ;-)
and I delight in finding new and interesting things to use on my table that others may not use..
She was a fabulous cook...never anything fancy...just "down on the farm" stout foods...
She smoked a cigarette ever so often and she would hold it in her mouth sometimes while she was cooking...and those ashes would get almost as long as that cigarette...
I was always really watching that because I kept thinking they might fall in the food...and I sure didn't wanna eat ASHES !! :)
They never did tho...Strangest thing I'd ever seen !!.......funny, the things we remember....she was such a sweet lady and had a really cute sense of humor...we all loved her very much..
it used to be 'cause we no longer use BACON GREASE...daaaang !
Wonder why someone can't come up with something good for us that
