Serving up Simplicity

Some people use rest stops or restaurants to take a break when they travel.
I'm proud to say that my girls love a good antique shop stop!!

On a 'browse only' stop I saw this long metal rectangular 'thing'...
My sweet girls caught me gazing at it, but I reminded them we were just their to look. The youngest mentioned how many great ways she knew I would use it and soon the vision was born that it would be great for holding our every day dishes! It now became a need -- right?? 

Originally I thought it would be down the middle of our table, but actually it's great on our oversized DIY island. Dishes are handy and there's a bit of a divider from the prep side to the eating side. 

With the casual of summer dining it has been fantastic!! Grab a plate, a coaster, dessert...

And I FINALLY have a place to feature my rolling pin splurge from Anthropology!
The napkins are nestled inside the pantry tin and the pin keeps them from blowing away when we are blessed with a cross breeze.

From R7 to you --
Be a blessing.

Oh Tenniel so nice to meet you. Glad you found me. I am looking for horse buddies.
I will look for a follow button and hang around awhile. I sure do miss the lifestyle.
Mine are more memories but I do love me a Cowboy and his horse!
