This amazing red heart was given to me, as a Christmas gift, from my dear friend Suzanne. She bought it in San Miguel de Allende, one of my favorite places.
Today it is for you! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this year of blogging so much fun.
For Silver Sunday at Beth’s Gypsy Fish Journal, I am confessing to a trip to an indoor flea market last weekend , and some purchases that are right up there with my all-time favorites.
I found this wonderful decanter, with its own inner container that can hold ice.
One problem. I had just bought this and was low on cash.
Not because it was expensive- it was only $10- but I hadn’t planned to pull into this flea market, but I did.
Is this all too much information?
I know it has worn spots and dings and dents, but I couldn’t resist.
Back to the money.
I had my wrist stamped with a smiley face, became distracted with Yellow Box look alike flip flops on display by the exit and walked outside looking for the nearest ATM.
Two blocks away, on the same side of the expressway was a meat market. I started walking. I am sure I would be just as determined to walk two blocks if- say- I was walking to the dentist, or the gym to exercise, or because I had a flat. (Sure…)
Meat market, money, silver… go figure.
I found an ATM, got my money and returned to buy the decanter and this.
I may have a problem with silver plate.
Is anyone having a state dinner for 1000 people? Are any foreign dignitaries going to be visiting soon? Just give me a call, and I’ll drive up with a million place settings.
You would really be helping me out. Please call- if I loan it out, then it will somehow all make sense, right?
And lastly, I went to the farm this morning and picked up my box of vegetables . Guess what was in the box?
Carrots! I think they look so pretty on this pewter cake stand my friend Anna gave me for Christmas.
Anna and I have a theory. If we want to keep what we are buying for ourselves, then the other one will like the gift. I love this gift. (Anna I am glad you didn’t keep it, but you can borrow it IF you borrow the silver plate too.)
Have a wonderful Sunday.
