A Sweet and Funny Note from my Etsy friend Nola!
Nola wrote the following
I'll never have to make a 'to do' list for my Thanksgiving or Easter Holiday Dinners again...it's all on these table mats!
Meal and folks (including someone's dogs) attending are usually the same every year and I jotted some memories of past one's while I was at it...my young son calling his uncle Dick instead of Dave (he'd never met him as he'd been gone for over 6 years without any of us knowing where he was), my sister-in-law dumping the only 2 pies we had that year at the front door as she tripped over the threshold, the fact that the pitcher of milk was for 'looks' only on my country table....no one ever drank it with their meal (pop for kids, coffee for us) and then I noted that I crashed on the couch when the guests went home...really! That's how it goes at Aunt Geo.s!
I mentioned the usual serving dishes I have in the old cupboard that I only use on Holidays and where they came from if heirlooms or family pieces and the table decorations I always use, too.
I say every year that Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday but Easter is always EASIER! You let the alphabet show thru on the mat, so I got the idea from that to say EZ as ABCs. I was gonna put more little drawings on them, but it was more important to me for them to be more of a journal or diary of the day.
Thanks...I can't wait to do the same with the art joural....
YOUR VERY WELCOME NOLA, I am so glad you loved your purchase and the extra I sent to such a generous person ~ you!
Here is a pic how they
looked when she ordered them.
You are a blessing!
