A few weeks ago I was surprised to find a package in my mailbox from Dianne. I opened it to find these items:
Dianne is one of my first blog readers, so she knows me well. She thought of my love of setting tables with vintage dishes and also sent a magazine/book called, "Flower Arrangements and Table Settings" that she found in York, PA and thought of me. It appears to be from the 50's/60's. I was touched that she thought of me and took the time and expense to mail these items.
I own a similar set of milk glass dishes. I did not realize the grape-shaped serving piece I have came in a set of four as shown here.
Thanks again, Dianne. I really enjoyed reading this.
Today I was totally surprised to receive this package from Patti in Missouri.
She sent me some of her husband's grandmother's rain lilies! His grandmother! Patti received them in the 70's. Three generations of Missouri women have grown these flowers and now they have found their way to my Michigan garden. I was born in Missouri, so I am thrilled to have flowers from my birth state!
I cannot tell you all how honored I am to receive these. I just hope they will survive the next few months, so I can plant them early this spring. Patti, you can be sure that I will treasure these bulbs. I remember seeing them bloom on your blog and they are beautiful.
I wish Dianne and Patti lived closer to me. I would love to invite them both to a garden luncheon when the rain lilies were in bloom.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
