This trayscape is for my daughter Ashleigh!
A little brunch tray for my girl
I like the solid plates with the paisley place mats
A black napkin with the blueberry napkin ring picks up another shade of blue in the place mat
Simple but pretty
A few flowers from the yard to brighten up the tray
Why black and blue you may ask?
Because that is the color of my darling daughters face! She was in Portland, OR for a work conference and stayed for a few days vacation afterwards. Her first morning bike ride lasted about 10 minutes when her tire caught in a rail track and threw her off. Ashleigh is a safe rider and thank goodness always wears a helmet but the right side of her face hit the ground!
Ashleigh doesn't remember any of this, but was told the story as she came to in the ambulance! Taken to Portland's Oregon Health & Science Hospital (listed as the best in Portland....yes I looked it up) she has had fabulous care.
It could have been much worse, but she did get cuts and bruises on her face and she fractured her cheekbone. This required surgery and that was done yesterday. The hospital staff has been awesome about calling me and keeping me informed. It is so hard to parent all the way across the country. I was ready to fly there, but Ashleigh has assured me she will be OK and that I don't need to do that.
I'm not completely convinced, but she does have friends who live one hour away and can come help her if she needs them. She is scheduled to fly home to San Jose, CA on Monday. (her bike was taken to the hospital with her and looks fine she says)
I'm wondering if she will change her hair color to
Black and Blue!
I'm joining these parties
(you know these are all thrifty finds)
Wishing you JOY,
