In October, after the last guest left, the hall was all clean for the next event, and the newlyweds were off to Hawaii we opened up 2 gifts left for us by the happy couple. In one was a pair of titanium Fiskars clippers for gardening and the other a little metal wagon frame with a wood insert. It was just perfect. So perfect, that I just couldn’t place it outside and watch it deteriorate with the seasons. Yah, that’s what is was meant to do and the kids would come home and I wouldn’t have used it yet. But, no I just couldn’t do that to it.
My little wagon sat looking so forlorn and sad thinking that I didn’t love it. Nothing could be farther from the truth! I had to find the perfect setting for my new friend. It needed to be the centerpiece of the perfect location. “Centerpiece!” Bingo, I knew I had hit on something fantastic. Flowers, we needed flowers. Oh, and floral foam too. Pumpkins, flowers, and foam, Oh My…..
Now my little wagon was being shown off to it’s best ability!
I smiled every time I entered the room! This little wagon had still more up its sleeve……
It became our Christmas centerpiece too! Somehow I don’t think this jewel is going to make it to the yard, maybe the porch, but never very far away from carrying the outside beauty inside. Thank you again, Kacie and Shamus! My new friend and I have many more tricks up our sleeve….. Cyn
