The kick-off of summer fun is close at hand. Semester’s end is fast approaching, and for some, major milestones culminating with graduation ceremonies are but a mere breath away. For many, summer promises endless days of non-stop fun in the sun. A flip of the calendar page and backyard gatherings will be in full swing. Now I hear some whispering going on. Psst, psst, psst! I guess it is safe to say that you checked out the first photo here. Um hmm … yes, those are reeeal vintage glass dishes sitting on my wonderful floral patterned tablecloth.
