Tales of the Traveling Tote

 Welcome to another adventure of The Tales of the Traveling Tote. This is where my fellow Tales of the Traveling Tote friends and I share our latest travels, projects and our most current events. You will have an opportunity to visit other members at the end of this post and learn about our giveaway


We have enjoyed the most beautiful spring weather this year, perfect for spending everyday outside on the veranda. Memorial Day weekend was no exception. Outside early, enjoying coffee, blueberry muffins and yes, cookies. I love them with hot coffee! 

I chose a few patriotic postcards, red, white and blue flowers and MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check mugs and heart plates

Miss Courtney always looks so pretty
 serving as a centerpiece

Memorial Day is the unofficial beginning of summer
A game of croquet anyone?

I added the hydrangeas in this little oiled bag found I found in a gift shop in Tuscany in 2019 on our most recent trip to Italy

A MacKenzie-Childs tiered stand holds
patriotic cookies from my favorite bakery

I love the checks on this patriotic tea towel

My little red wagon helps me do gardening. It also holds lots of flowers that needs to be planted!  

Friday I set a table for four

Red, white and blue was the theme

Mac-Kenzie-Childs and Target sets the table

 A few weeks ago we enjoyed watching our grandson in one of his mountain bike races. Again, perfect weather to attend an outdoor event.

 The campsite is completely full

Miss Scarlet wanted to attend the races! 

Connor is on the left

What a great day to spend with family and enjoy the outdoors

I hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day in remembrance of those who paid the ultimate price
