My niece was here a few weeks ago and we got out the punch set. The punch set ties into my Seekerville post today, because it cost $2.97 from Eckerd's or Rite Aid or some such a VERY LONG TIME AGO!!!! It was a Christmas present from Dave's sister Beverly and I've used it multiple times, every year, for every purpose known to man...
And it survived all these years. See the gold "carnival" glass look?
Haley calls it 'fancy'. And she sighed and said "Aunt Ruth has such nice things..." with a hint of longing in her voice.
I was no way, no how about to correct her, LOL!
And my grandkids LOVE THESE CUPS. They sparkle. They reflect the light. The punch shimmers inside!!!!!
I love simple things that stand the test of time, so do you have any cool things you bring out for special occasions? They don't have to be pricey, just something that makes a memory?
Here's a pic of the cupcakes my daughter-in-law Lacey made for Easter:
Simple. Making memories. Not necessarily spending more money.
Jon made fancy Jello, like my mother-in-law used to make for my kids... And Emma LOVED IT!!!
So what fun things do you like to do to make things special? Share them with us... Over really good coffee and tea, of course!
