Who is Arla?????
I met her in my shop! She and I were talking one day and I told her that I blog. To make a long story short, she has been a follower of my blog for a long time! She was so excited to meet me and then to find out I lived in her development ....sent her over the moon!
Since I have closed my shop I have wanted her to do a post for me. So in a few days you will see a post about Goose Grove written by Arla!
Arla, loves to cook and made Broccoli & Cheese soup for our lunch. It was so yummy and was a perfect compliment to our salad with baked chicken on top!
I served the soup in my yellow " Sweet Olive Design " bowls. They look like crowns.
The flat plate & salad plate are vintage " Edwin M. Knowles" china. The polka dot placemats are from the Dollar Store a few years ago.
My hat boxes were our centerpiece.
The tablecloth is hand embroidered. I bought it at a flea market some time ago.
I wanted to do something a little fancy so I layered bandanas for napkins. I don't think I would buy them again. They shrink in all the wrong places after washing them.
I heard so much about Savers from other bloggers. When I heard they were coming to our area, I was so excited! The day they opened..........I was there! Last week, I picked up this deviled eggs dish. I can't believe I never bought a dish for deviled eggs!
The pattern is Rose White.
The casserole was given to me by my Aunt Emily.
My salt & pepper shakers were bought in an antique store in Alton, IL
I love pink & roses, so anything I see I have to buy! lol Are you like that with certain colors?
I am using this shell dish for dressing, in remembrance of my mother in love.
I had so much fun talking to Arla and watching her post a draft to my site. I had trouble copying & pasting her email . So, she volunteered to come over and do it all on her computer.
A big THANK YOU to Arla!
Oh, I almost forgot STRAWBERRIES for dessert!
A Mary Engelbreit dish I found at a yard sale for $1.00!!!
I hope you enjoyed a peek at our lunch....we certainly had a good time. I am so excited for you to see Goose Grove.
Thank you for stopping by...Please leave a comment. I'd love to hear from you! I am sure Arla would too!
