Hello to all of you! C'mon and sit down... We've got plenty of pitchers we can fill with all kinds of liquid goodies to keep our mouths hydrated for all day get together! I'm sure Tam, our "Three or More host, will not mind. Go on, get comfy and drink up. Then Diane, our host for "2nd Time Around" and I will tell you about a wonderful piece I found at Goodwill. What? You want glasses, no no no... I did say we have plenty of pit-chers, so choose one and enjoy! No need to be lady like here, we're all friends, plus no husbands allowed on this post! LOL
***The first and middle are Italian ceramic pitchers from Marshall's in AZ, that I've used for Thanksgiving. My dh got them for me as birthday presents. I saw them and immediately fell in love! Can't you just taste the cold apple cider in those or even our traditional Pineapple Orange juice drink at Thanksgiving. I can't wait!
***The 2nd one, a green one, holding the flowers, is the one I found at Ross here. I can just imagine all the fresh milk it can hold for a great breakfast on the first day of summer vacation... or first day of school!
***The Gabbay line by Gibson pitcher is from Tuesday Morning. Normally $20, got it for $7.99! This one is for my middle child's upcoming birthday party this month.
***You know about my Blossom Asian pitcher from Ross. It held lemonade and other drink before that. The sky's the limit. What would you mix in it?
***You remember my Sangria Pitcher by Libbey, right, it's from the set I got at Kohl's, just a few days before Cinco de Mayo. My virgin Sangrias, Berry Citrus and Melon Coconut were both big hits!
***And that one on middle bottom is my vegetable pitcher from Ross back in San Jose, California; I got it for $3.00. It's actually better for ice cold water! The embossed design hides condensation well!
***That last one, that is from our early marriage while living in Downtown, San Jose. I don't remember where I picked it up. This is our everyday, and is older than two of my children! That should tell you careful I am with my treasures...
Glad you got to enjoy our "get together"; next time, BYOG, ok? (Psst... That means "Bring your own Glass".) ;-)
Here's a Goodwill find I want to share... As I'll definitely be using this for my Christmas table. Did you know that though I've done many Christmas tablescapes, I seldom have a picture of them? This year, I'm taking tons and will be doing trial runs so you can have an idea of how we "dress up" for Christmas. :-D
Isn't it beautiful? When I saw it, I thought, "Wow! I can use this at the dessert table or for appetizers!" I don't know if you can see it, but the price was right at $1.99! The cheapest one I found on Ebay was $17 I think.
I absolutely adore this mistletoe on the side at the top of the Christmas tree...
Imagine my luck when I turned it over and it's a Spode! My second Spode, aptly called, "Christmas Tree". Yeah!
A great big thanks to both our hosts, Tam and Diane for another great set of Tuesday memes. Don't forget to stop by and let them know how cool you think they are. And glad to see you all here again! And to any new visitors, welcome, welcome!!!
TABLESCAPING IDEA: ("Brain is lovin' her pitchers) Don't have the perfect vase to hold a great bouquet? Use a pitcher! It's an old concept. If it's a pitcher you use for drinking, make sure to not let the flowers sit in it for more than your tablescape night for obvious sanitation reasons.
