THRIFTY FALL CENTERPIECE

Hey, I'm coming back with this freebie to join

Free Centerpiece!!
"YOU CAN DO A LOT OF DECORATING WITH VERY LITTLE"

My Sweetie Brings me flowers every Wednesday!!
My Sweet Old Bob has been doing the grocery shopping 
for many years. He took on the chore after I had back surgery.
He thought he did a better job than I and I never told him any different.
For a year or so I thought he was such a sweetie
and still romantic after 50 plus years (he truly is a sweetie). 
One day I accompanied him on his Wednesday shopping trip.
The produce manager comes up to "Mr. Romantic" and says
"Mr. Bob don't forget to pick up "the little lady's" flowers today".
It seems the produce manager actually
GIVES him a bouquet of his choice each week.
My sweetie is a retired food broker and really chews the "fat"
with everyone each week. They apparently love his visits.

That particular week, the produce manager got the kiss, on the cheek, instead of
"Mr. Romantic".
So you see, I get flowers, sweet old Bob gets a bargain (and a kiss) 
and the staff at the market enjoys hearing about the "golden olden days".
Everyone Wins!
I hope you enjoy the beautiful arrangement that results.

Oh...my heart just melted. Sweetest thing ever! Tell Bob I wish there were more men left in this world like him!

Morning, that is a beautiful arrangement and I loved the little story about how he gets them. He is obviously very popular in the store!! Jackie in Surrey, UK.

What a lovely arrangement -- and what a clever container for your bouquet. No matter why he gets the flowers, it is still nice that you get a weekly bouquet. There is nothing like fresh flowers in the house to make one feel good!
