I got an excited phone call from my mother the other day....
Mom: "Gail, I bought something for you that I think you're really going to like. I'm excited!"
There was enthusiasm in her voice....which made ME excited as well!
Gail: "Oh really? What is it? It's not even my birthday!" :)
She proceeded to tell me that she had been to a local antiques store browsing for do-dads for the house when she came upon a gem of an item that had my name all over it....
...a vintage punch bowl.
I love having people over and throwing parties and for the last 2 1/2 years I've always just borrowed her punch bowl and hosting service items. I know she never minded....but it's fun now to start adding to my own hosting collection.
I love the etched glass detail...
...and how sparkly and light reflective the glass is.
And did I mention she also picked up a set of 12 glass plates as well? :) What a sweet mom I have. Thanks, Mom! I'm already starting to plan our next party... and you can be assured that there will be some fabulous punch! YUM.
