so they could sing
Happy Birthday to Meeeeee!
♫♫ ♥♥♥ ♫♫
Two of my four sisters came to visit last week
to help celebrate my birthday.
The other two live in AZ & CO,
so its a little hard for them to pop over,
but I sure wish they could have joined us!
I set the table using my Valentines Day
tablerunner that I made last year.
It is a free pattern HERE & was very easy.
I'm anxious to make another one, only longer.
My kitchen table is 60"x 60",
so its a challenge.
There are lots of darling ♥♥♥ prints out right now
at JoAnn's Fabric.
Did you know they are also carrying April Cornell fabrics??
Woo-Hoo...I see some pretty tablecloths
with matching napkins in my very near future.
You're probably sick of seeing these same dishes
again & again but they are some of my favorites.
I ♥♥♥ RED & I ♥♥♥ Polka-dots...what can I say?
Since my younger sister is a Vegan &
my older sister is a diabetic,
I had an all veggie lunch planned.
Marinated garlic green beans with
RED (what else?) ORANGE & YELLOW peppers.
and Cowboy Caviar with fresh cilantro.
Normally, I make it from scratch,
(Printable Recipe HERE)
but my grocery store carries this wonderful
black bean/corn salad to which
I added the fresh cilantro &
some chunky salsa & it was just as good.
Lime flavored tortilla chips were used for scooping.
They each took home a piece of cake
to enjoy later.
As part of the decorations, I added
this little drink carrier I recently found
at a thrift store, so I
tucked in some little jars, filled with
both red & white candy & then
tied on ribbons & strips of fabric & selvages.
**Mother, you never throw anything away!**
I have lots more Valentine REDS to bring out,
especially since my *Smock & Talk* sewing group
is coming here next Tues.
I better get busy!
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House
I'm going to join The Tablescaper
for her Seasonal Sunday meme
along with Marty's Tabletop Tuesday
and Susan, Between Naps on the Porch
Pop on over to visit these gals...lots of inspiration there!
