These two goblets were given to me by my baby sister, Rowena before we left California to move to Arizona.
She joined a book club and for every three ordered she received one goblet. She can order up to how many she wanted. Well, after she got the second goblet, she had to abandon the notion of books by mail- she had to save for something else that took up a rather higher ranking in her list of priorities.
So for today's Pink Saturday, my very first one to do...
("Brain", I'm a little nervous to share.) ("What are you nervous about?")
(You know... They may not like it!) ("Well, you'll never know unless you show them!")
(But what if they don't like it?!) ("I'm sure they will, don't worry!")
(But, but... What if they...) ("What, if, but... Be like Nike and JUST DO IT! Now!")
(Alright, you're so testy!) ("Carolyn, just do it already! I'm sure they'd like to see what you posted about...")
(Fine... Here I go...) ("You can do it... I know you can.")
I present to you, my two rose-colored wine goblets!
It's not crystal but the fact that it came from my sister, my only and younger sister who is bravely raising two children on her own is enough to make this quite priceless... So yes, NO ONE (not even my children) is allowed to touch these babies! ("Brain" is always watching... Remember?)
I hope you all enjoyed going down memory lane with me. I miss her so much and my "babies"- my niece April and nephew Kyle... They are so cute! I remember this one time when we--
("Snap out of it, Carolyn! This is not the Oprah Winfrey show!" ~"Brain") (Sorry, my bad...)
(Thanks for the encouragement, "Brain"! Sharing was so much better... Ok! Onto the next thing.)TABLESCAPING IDEA: Think of a reason to have a dinner for two in your own dining room. With a light pink tablecloth (Anna's Linens have a great selection) and some white candles on smooth crystal candleholders and a white rose bud on a crystal bud vase. Set up a footed tray of finger foods, and at the bottom, two special goblets like mine (just for these types of dinners) filled halfway with your fave libation (hopefully nothing strong or non-alcoholic, preferrable). Turn down the lights, share the food, the drink and declare your undying love for each other, all over again...
(This is a great idea. Even "Brain" is quite impressed; and she's the smart one! Love that!)
Happy Pink Saturday everybody!!!
