Designer Paper Plates

Believe it or not, I am starting to wonder where spring is hiding. As much as I am able to enjoy the cold and snow of February, when my birthday comes (and goes) I am looking forward to green grass and warm weather. It's not happening. It's snowing; big, fat, fluffy flakes of wet snow. No more snowmen for me this year. No snowball fights. No way, no how.

I'm ready for picnics outside and afternoon visits on the back porch. I'm ready to whip up a macaroni salad and show off my really super cool new paper plates. Check out the fancy design! Have you ever seen paper plates so cool? Of course, you haven't. Not until now.

I found two sizes of  Essential Everyday Designer plates in town at the IGA. They were both the kind with the colored pattern across the center and white trees outlined through the centers. I was disappointed to see they did not yet have the rest of the set out on the shelves. Perhaps I should tell the store manager that the designer was once a stock boy in their store, and that he grew up in this very town. Maybe everyone will get excited and buy them! :0) Okay, so maybe not everyone is as thrilled as his mom, but I am looking forward to bragging a little bit at some picnics this summer. I wonder if there are napkins to match?

  1. White trees....just like winter? hahaha. Just teasing you.
    Yes, those plates make you want to have a picnic!
    March is always like this, isn't it? I never think it feels like spring until mid April or so. But you know me..I love grey. lol...

    It's dark and drizzly here today.

    1. March is the fickle month. As a matter of fact, sometimes April is a bit fickle too. But spring weather can't be far off once April arrives.

      I'm not sure how long I can wait to have a party. maybe just until James' birthday. That's on April 6. Maybe I can wait that long... maybe.

    1. Is that the problem? Thankfully, it is looking better outside today than it was yesterday afternoon. Let's just hope it keeps headed in the right direction.
