Gollum, thank you so, so much for hosting yet another Foodie Friday! I've chosen a garden theme, since spring (and summer) blooms are dancing through my head. To see what else is cooking for Foodie Friday, check out Gollum's blog. Designs by Gollum
I'd rather be dining al fresco, but dining in front of the fireplace will be just as nice.
I pulled out my only "flowery" napkins. My sister embroidered them for us. Thanks Cheryl!
Has anyone attended one of the many grand flower shows? We just visited the Philadelphia flower show and enjoyed replicated vistas and lush gardens of central Italy. At the flower show, I was smitten with the replicated piazza that was stocked with Italian products from vino to Vespas and suits to Murano glass. So for dinner, I decided to use the chicken roaster that I received as a gift. Made in Italy.
I'll post more pictures from the garden show this weekend. The theme was Bella Italia.
DH collected receipts, brochures, artifacts, etc. from our trip to Philly. He uses an empty wine bottle, and starts with the front of bottle. He uses wood glue or glue-all, contact cement, whatever you have at home will work. After he glues, he puts rubber bands around the bottle in order to keep everything tight while the glue dries. When you get to the top of the bottle, it gets a bit challenging. Just cut those items at an angle to get them to fit better. It's always a surprise for me when he hides it for me to find. He's a keeper!
Here's a bottle that he made last summer. I think we have a total of eight now.
Thanks for stopping by! Please feel free to leave a comment so I can check out your blog.
