It is not like I don't have a lot to tell you right now. I do. ALOT!But today I am getting ready for our company's Annual Crawfish Boil. So, I will let the pictures do most of the talking.
I finally took down my Valentine's decorations on Saturday! I put up a few Easter items along with my clearanced Hobby Lobby flowers from a few years back. Boy, have I gotten my money's worth out of those babies!
Each of those teacups has a story...if not my own. The top one is a Christmas gift from my Circle Of Friends - a group of ladies who started getting together once a month to build friendships. After the first year, we cut back to once a quarter...and now it is a few times a year. I don't get to attend as much as I would like since I have moved out in the 'boonies'...but each of those ladies holds a very special place in my heart and in my life.
The second cup is from my Grandma Fulton's magnolia blossom china. It is just so 'HER'. It looks so delicate, but it has weathered more than a few moves. A Southern Lady through and through...but let her get on the telephone with her sister in Michigan and the 'Yankee' would bleed through. Wow, how I miss her! I'm going to stop now before I cry!
The third cup is a gift from my Mother-In-Love a few years back. It is the perfect cup from her because back when Jim and I were dating and first married, she had the most BEAUTIFUL African Violet on her dining table! I had never seen one grow so big before...nor have I seen one since. She is a treasure still. With or without a huge African Violet on the table!
The last cup is from a set of china that I am sure graced some one's family table over the years before I "rescued" it from a local thrift store. I LOVE tableware...and it looked so lonely on the shelf. I just knew it would make the perfect Easter/Spring china.
And finally, it isn't Easter related, but since we were decorating anyway and I had moved the family portrait from the mantel to put up the flowers. Bri and I did this:
Well, back to shopping for Crawfish Boil! I just needed to take a quick breather after the Sam's run. I'll put it to you like this...I will not be needing to visit a gym to get a workout today! Talk to y'all tomorrow.
