FAB is for FABULOUS


It's no secret that I have a thing for FAB trays. It's the prettiest addiction collection I have, equal to my Vera Neumann scarves! Well, colour me fabulous when a complete stranger emailed me a little while ago to let me know about her two FAB trays that were destined to be *gasp!* tossed out. This lovely stranger, Bonnie is her name, decided to search online for FAB enthusiasts and there I popped up! She contacted me asking if I'd like her beloved trays, and I didn't hesitate with a big giant yes!
And wouldn't you know, in the mail today a big package arrived with my name on it.
I gleefully opened it up and shook out two beautifully colourful trays - I giggled, I flitted, I pounced on my bed & knew they were destined to hang in my bedroom! The colours match the random greens, yellows, oranges, & pinks found 'round my room! FABulous!

*note: not all my FAB trays are here; there are at least 6 others elsewhere in my apartment.

Thank you Bonnie, for gifting me with your precious FAB trays! You picked the right home to donate them to; they will be cherished and displayed as they were intended - and used! Yes, I actually do bring out one to tote around drinks or cupcakes or the like. :)
*note: um, how awesome would it be to have a party with cupcakes adorning all these FAB trays? must get on that!

with FABulous joy!

  3. oh, and p.s.. I keep meaning to tell you that I saw hilarious lil' DOXIE corn cob handles at Superstore.. and thought of you: corn dogs! In fact, I often see random stuff that is so "Caren" and have to restrain myself from cluttering up your life! lol
