Annie came to see me

And I was a terrible hostess. I didn't even offer her or her hubby water or tea!

She had emailed me to let me know she was coming tomorrow. I read the email yesterday morning and thought tomorrow was today (Wednesday). LOL! Nope, she sent the email on Monday.

I felt like such a goober. My shirt was filthy and my face probably needed scrubbing. I'd been canning beans and had just gotten home with 18-1/2 pounds of black-eyed peas when she called to say they were in town. I was flustered.

She brought me a box to swap for some glassware. I didn't open it until after she'd left and mercy, would you look at what she gave me.
My very first piece of Fenton. I love it!

We had a good visit and I sent her home with cinnamon pickles and jam. Hopefully she and her hubby weren't too put out by my lack of hostess skills and will come and see me again. I promise to do better next time.

Good heavens, woman! I didn't think a thing was amiss so stop apologizing! You sent me home with so many goodies, it was like Christmas! I was happy to meet all your family.

I hope you enjoy the bowl. I think the silver crest pieces are so pretty.

And of course I'll come visit again!

Oh my hang onto that Fenton piece. Fenton's is about to go under ... my SIL lost his job over a year ago. Too sad.
