Maisy's Things

Do ya all remember my Crate & Barrel post the other day???
Well, this a follow up.
The only difference is that I am the photographer and the set is my kitchen.
Yeah!!!

So, I went to C&B on Saturday to pick up a gift for myself for Mother's Day.
Well, to tell ya the truth....I brought it for Asher to give to me.
See, that's why I'm step-mom of the year....he doesn't even have to shop for me.
Although, he did buy be wine glasses on his own.
Is there meaning in that???? Wine glasses??
I will ponder that thought tonight while I sit by my pond enjoying a glass or two of wine~

This is my Costco version of the one I saw at Crate and Barrel.
I would have gotten it at Crate and Barrel but the lid wasn't air tight.
It just sat on there waiting to get bumped right off.
It was waiting for me to cry because I actually spent $40 on it.
So, I just decided there must be better out there.
AND...........there was at my favorite store....COSTCO.
Guess the price of it???
Have ya got a number in you head??
Ok...we will say it at the same time...
1, 2, 3..........
$25.00~

I think I will be having that party over the 4th of July weekend.

Happy Friday......

Hey, COOL!
I bet your party will be even more fun than MaryJane's big shindig! OK, So if we want to be there by Sat. the fourth....We would have to leave Oregon on what??...Thurday mornining??
I LOVE your beverage jar. I collect old thermos jugs and love them too. They remind me of trips to the beach when I was little.
I am going to have to avoid the computer this weekend since I have a bad case of mouse runner shoulder, OUCH!! Have a great day!

I need one of those! I hope Sam's will have one for summer since we don't have a COSTCO near! And I'm loving the cake plate!

I have one of those that my sister in law bought me a couple years ago at Sams Club. I used it at the store a couple of times and when it was sitting on the floor drying after being washed with the lid just sitting on top, my mom bumped it and the lid fell off and broke! Sooooo sad! Have a great weekend Amy! Oh I almost forgot, I got my teapot yesterday and LOVE it! Thanks so much!
