Thank you to Sweet Sue for hosting us this week from "It's a Very Cherry World"

No laughing please.....this is my first attempt at a semi, kinda like, Tablescape. The trouble is I don't really have a dining room table. What was a dining room table has become my work table. So to get this picture I had to pick up poor Missy and her cat bed and move her away from the window where I thought there would be decent light to take this photograph. I had to select a piece of my "many" cherry print fabrics, iron it, and assemble this all together. Even now I notice the "stuff" behind the plate...lol. Oh well!
Sooo...to make a long story even longer....a couple of weeks ago I saw someone linked up to Rednesday who had the most darling red cherry colander and these cherry measuring cups. I soooo wanted them. I immediately Google searched every combination of words to find them but I was not successful. I sent pictures to my neighbor, Paddy, and asked her to be on the look out for them, too. I just knew I "needed" them. I showed them to Ms. Christina in Ft. Myers who has the cherry kitchen. She had never seen them either...ugh!
The BF tells me all the time that I should work for the FBI. I always seem to figure out what he is up to with minimal information...lol! Anywhooooo.....today I was running errands and I stopped into Pier 1 Imports....I seldom go in there...prices are high...on my way to "Tar-Jay". Well...I'm strolling around looking at stuff thinking that I'm getting some walking (exercise) in, when out of the corner of my eye I spy the Cherry colander and then the Cherry measuring cups and THEN the Cherry measuring spoons. You would have thought that it was the second coming of Christ! I was SO thrilled! I found them! I found them! A big gulp and I flip stuff over to check the prices. The sensible side of me decided that while I LOVE the Cherry colander, I can live without it. It's $18 but I later found it in the store on sale right now for $14.99. The Cherry measuring cups were $15 but I had to have them. They are now MINE! Happy Dance! I don't recall what the Cherry measuring spoons are going for but until they go on sale I probably won't be owning them either. Plus I just found the cute little silver Cherry measuring spoons for Joann's for $1.
So to Pier 1 Imports...if you need any help with your SEO (Search Engine Optimization) please get in touch with me. Once I got home I found the "Red Colander" on their website. It's linked from my Facebook page if you want to see it.
