I have THE BEST personal shopper. She not only knows what I like; she knows that no matter how much I like it, I won’t pay full price! My sister-in-law, Brenda, called me about a gift store in her area that was going out of business. She described a metal patriotic wagon that she knew I would love. When she told me the price, I screamed, “yes, get it for me before someone else snaps it up!”
Isn’t that the cutest thing? When she was checking out, the sales person told her it was supposed to have a casserole dish in it. I just happened to have a dark blue casserole that fit it. Okay, there’s more to this story. You’re going to wish Brenda was your sister-in-law before I finish this story.
For my birthday, Brenda gifted me with this adorable matching cutlery holder, and
the matching napkin holder, andthis wonderful matching cake stand (which I used to elevate my centerpiece, since I didn’t bake a cake). I cut some of those peonies, which you may remember seeing bent over on the ground in my Backyard post. No, Brenda cannot be your sister-in-law, and you’ll have to contact her personally if you want her to be your personal shopper. I’m so glad my sweetheart has a sister, who is not only a great friend to me, but also a great shopper for me!
So, with the addition of a few things I already had, I got the table ready for a Memorial Day celebration.
For patriotic days, I love to get out my Moda Home melamine plates that I bought at Tuesday Morning several years ago.
My sweetheart, a Viet Nam Veteran.
Wishing everyone a wonderful Memorial Day celebration, as we remember our military and their families who have given so much so that we might live in freedom. laurie
