I surrounded us by our heritage. His parents are cotton and pig farmers so that is why the farm surrounding. The vintage milk bottles were given to me by MIL yrs ago and I love them. 1 says Suffok, VA which is area hubby was born. 1 says milk 3 cents...not $3, Got Milk. :0D I used Princess House crystal goblets my mom gave me recently and has such pretty details you can't see here. I made strawberries and blueberry muffins and sausage and eggs. Usually we don't make all of this fuss but the table moooooved me.
I have recently found a cute set of 4 farm animal rings clearanced from WilliamsSonoma so I pulled out the cow and pig to wrap up the Ross dress4 less napkins (really kitchen towels, 1.99 for 4). It looks really cute with everything and I will only use them for napkins. Most of the tableware came out of the breakfast table hutch you can always see in the background.
The creamer holds a little boquet that hubby and oldest son bought at the grocery. I think he makes a point to try to remember to get the boys to do this for me. Just a few bucks and it makes me feel special and teaches them to love and give into someone else's life and likes. They are always so proud when they come in with the flowers and present them to me. I got out our plain cream dishes and set them on the black and white ticking mats to tie into the white dish party and laid out white underneath to drive it home. Both came from Ross or Marshalls. I can't wait to get my antique table back out of the garage and into my dining room so I can have more fun playing with my dishes and feeding my crew. Ya'll will love my dining room when it is set up again. We've changed some room purposes and the flooring and it is on the backburner of my list now that it is a glorified storage mess. But dish love is getting me revved up to do it.
Birds eye views are my favorite and I giggle at the child like wonder that we all enjoy these things and sharing with each other. Ya'll have truly helped me refine who I am and why I'm here and what's important just by being you. I love it that we encourage one another to bloom and grow and flourish right there where we are in the wide world. I just love meeting people from all over the globe and all over our country. Really, I never knew so many people loved the stuff I love..did ya'll?
My hubby and kids got a kick out of this fuss. If it were not for you they'd be lucky for me to even help them get a bowl of cereal and I wouldn't have thought to pray with hubby before school got going for our children. Thanks for helping me make my best intentions reality (esp. you...Smiling Sally).
I got a call from the school nurse on the very 1st day of school and had to take lil' bit in with fever, sore throat, cough, headace. Good thing we prayed...the strepp test came back negative. No fevers, flu viruses or anything is gonna be welcome around here this school year. xox!
