~ What's Your Choice ~ A Bowl of Cherries or A Chair of Bowlies?


ME Metal Sculpture by Enesco 1998

"Life 

is just a 

chair of bowlies!"



Mary Engelbreit coined this phrase 

when she launched her very first greeting card.




 Collection of Assorted  ME Products from 1990s

To say I'm a fan of Mary Engelbreit

and her work is an understatement!  

I've been purchasing her greeting cards since the very first ones were available.  Mary's art work was a favorite in my classroom during the years I taught elementary school, and Mary's whimsical work remains a favorite here in my home.






Fresh Oregon Cherries 

in the grocery this summer prompted 

me to gather my ME cherry things for a recent tablescape.




Hood River Cherries 

from Oregon are the BEST!





I filled one of my ME cookie jars 

with bright golden sunflowers.





Then I set the table with  ME cherry dishes 

paired with solid black dishes 

and MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check.  






I added some cute cherry napkins, 

a recent find at Tuesday Morning.





Love the way they all stack up together!

You can see another tablescape 

that features the ME cherry 

dishes paired with plaid here.





I added in the crystal 

compote for a special treat.

When it comes to containers for flowers,

don't limit yourself to an ordinary vase.

Get creative and use other 

containers found around your home.

This ME cookie jar was a perfect fit for the sunflowers.





Have a Happy Day!
