I love this pitcher. The lid also functions as a cup. Found this gem at Goodwill for $3.50. It looks like "vintage" Princess House -like my glasses. In hotels and cruise ships, I always love turn down service and look forward to getting my chocolate. So why not provide a little chocolate for your guests? Too me, it's just the little things that mean so much.

Prepping for my peeps
It's my birthday week!! Yippee!! I'm in full swing of getting my house cleaned and last minute preparations for my out of town family. Similar to my post regarding bathroom baskets for parties here, when I have out of town company; I like to put a toiletries basket in the bathroom. (Just like when you go to a hotel) It is inevitable that somebody will forget something and it makes it convenient for your guests. I know I always love grabbing the loot at the hotels (whether I need it or not). You pay enough for your room, right? So I fill up a basket with toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, lotion, mouthwash, Q-tips, sunscreen, etc... I just get the trial size of most items. Here is a picture of my guest bedroom nightstand. Every night before my guests go to bed, I like to provide cold water with lemon or citrus water. I will fill the vase with fresh flowers on Thursday. (I just love my purse vases- my sister Jackie is the one who got me started with them) Got the beautiful Princess House glasses from a yard sale. The lady I bought them from got them for her wedding over 35 years ago. I love it when you know the history of your items.
