It has gotten ugly cold around here.
Last night, past freezing. Well past freezing.
So I (if by "I" we mean "Howard") brought
in the porch ferns and baskets, to shelter in our hall.
Our front hall looks like a set for Little Shop of Horrors.
On flattened garbage bags, we have three e-nor-mous Boston ferns,
and one rather deflated hanging geranium. She's getting a haircut, and a warm cozy spot to recover.
I'm going to try and hang these ferns. Somewhere.
I need hanging pots for them, without drainage holes!
I'll sit their "hole-y" pots inside the solid ones.
The big asparagus ferns, which started the summer
as little asparagus ferns, will stay on their pedestals,
probably in the dining room.
Oy. That's a lot of ferns.
Wish me luck.
Craigslist has come up trumps for me again. :-)
Last year, I bought 8 dinner plates at the Christmas Tree Shops.
Pfaltzgraff. White basketweave pattern. Love 'em.
Read about my love for all basketweave china, here.
But 8 dinner plates isn't enough. I needed new everyday white dishes.
Really. I did. Just ask my husband.
Or maybe don't ask him, come to think of it.
Craigslist to the rescue.
Complete service for 14, in Oneida's Basketweave pattern.
Tomorrow I brave the jungles of Bergen County to meet a lovely woman
who is the current custodian of my basketweave china,
and hopefully will haul it all home in the trusty minivan.
Stay warm, my friends! -- Cass
