Mr. Mountain Breaths has a secret stash of receipts, brochures, artifacts, wine bottles and doo dads from our travels. So far we have nine memory bottles in our collection. They bring many smiles.
Using an empty wine bottle, he uses wood glue, glue-all or contact cement to secure the memory items to the bottle. After he glues, he puts rubber bands around the bottle to keep everything tight while the glue dries. When he gets to the top of the bottle, it gets a bit challenging. So he cuts those items at an angle so they will fit better.
What a cute name for a New York City cafe - Evergreen Cafe (Noodles and Fun)!
It was very "interesting" to visit the Museum of Sex in New York City. We try to visit a new museum each time we visit NYC.
I love this bottle from 1999 with the Cafe Nero business card. My husband surprised me with a 40th birthday party at the cafe, and I'll never forget it. Lots of friends, Lots of fun ;o) My birthday is in August, but he held the party in May. I DIDN'T HAVE A CLUE!!!
I was in the mood for a blue tablescape this week, inspired by my husband's blue bottle collection. This time of year, blue is a welcome sight. We had three consecutive days of sunshine recently, and I loved seeing the blue sky!
The edging on the vintage tablecloth is wonderful.

Before we left for our getaway, I came across a blog that featured Cinnamon Bun Bar Cookies. My tastebuds were swooning! I shared these cookies my special friend Paula so she would heal quicker after her surgery ;o) The recipe is here at An Edible Mosaic.
Thank you for your interest in my blog! I really appreciate the time you take to leave me comments!
I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. If you love creative tablescapes, check it out.
