More old flowers. Would you believe these hydrangeas are 18 days old? And they are not dried, they are still fresh. These were bought from the wholesaler on January 16th, used in the wedding on the 19th, picked up from the club on the 20th and they have been here in my kitchen ever since. There is no preservative in the water, but I have re-cut the stems each day and changed the water. All the other wedding flowers were donated to the Flower Shuttle for redistribution to people in hospitals and nursing homes. I suspect they are long gone by now.
One of my cigar boxes. I have had this one since sometime in the 70's and it has held my children's crayons ever since. New ones are added as needed, of course. Nowadays, my grandchildren prefer markers and chalk, so the crayons languish in the box most of the time.
A dusty stack of wooden cigar boxes - awaiting contents - next to a bubble bowl half-full of matchbooks, most of which you saw before on Just Ask Judy.
If you want to see the rest of the matchbooks, search on that blog for 'matchless memorabilia'.
When I awoke this morning, the first thing I saw on the computer was an award from Diane Mandy of Martinis for Two.
It is the "Make My Day" award - and I think that is one of the nicest I've had! Thanks, Diane, I hope we continue to make each other's day for years to come. Instead of passing it on to any set number of people, I'm giving it to all of you who stop here, read and comment. You truly do make my days - and you deserve an award for it!!
