We had gone to Branson last year and just had a fantastic time, so we went for round two this year. We saw some really terrific shows (The Haygoods, Barry Williams, Grand Jubilee, Dixie Stampede, Joseph, and Cats Pajamas). In addition, we really enjoyed hanging out at Branson Landing, which is an outdoor shopping mall on the lake, with lots of restaurants and bars - many with outdoor seating lakeside.

On our last day, took a lunch cruise and met a wonderful couple from Wisconsin of all places! We just had the best time and hit it off so much!
One of the places we ate was Joe's Crab Shack and they sent me home with one of their mason jar glasses. (because I enjoyed a fruity, yummy drink in one!) So what to do? what to do? with this glass?
Well, I always like to come up with a momento from our trips and while grocery shopping today I picked up a little ivy plant and a bag of rocks.
I filled the bottom of my glass with the rocks and then plunked the ivy in it. Simple, simple - but I like it. I added a piece of twine for some rough texture and bam! A cute addition to my kitchen windowsill that will bring a smile to my face every time I see it.
Besides my little mason jar, I did pick up a few things for our guest room and I also scored a gorgeous lamp for our den from the best Kirkland's EVER at Branson Landing. I will be showing those soon!
Well, thanks for joining on my "vacation slide show" (remember those? hopefully this one wasn't too dull! lol!).
Wishing you happiness,
