Pearls and Lace Thursday #59 and a Three Tiered Tray Tale

The Three Tiered Tray Tale

There once was a Three Tiered Tray, made of glass and metal.  It resided on a table for years and was looked at, but rarely used.
One day, the Three Tiered Tray was taken to a different table!  It thought is was going to a party.  Oh what type of party could it be?  Would the glass dishes it was made of hold beautifully decorated petit fours?  Would it hold pretty little cupcakes?  Would it be destined to hold lovely chilled fruit?
But wait, what kind of table was this?  And what kind of objects were already waiting for it?
These were not objects for a lovely party....they were objects for a SALE!!!
Oh no! Thought the Three Tiered Tray.
I'm going to be SOLD!!!
And so goes the tale of the Three Tiered Tray.
It sat for days while stern looking women scanned it with their knowledgable eyes, wondering if it was fit for their own tables.  The poor Three Tiered Tray didn't know what to think.  What if the lady with the rowdy children chose to take it....would it be broken or chipped on the way home?
What if the lady with the large purse took it?  Would there be parties in the future of the Three Tiered Tray?  Oh pick me, pick me!!! If only there was a way to get her attention!
But alas, passed by again, the Three Tiered Tray went for days with no one to take it home.
Until, one day a lady came by the table where the Three Tiered Tray was sitting, almost all alone.
She looked at it, picked it up even, and wasn't long in asking, "What is the price for this?"
Joy of joys, the Three Tiered Tray thought.  "I'm going to a new home!  Parties and pretties are my future!"
For a whole six hours the Three Tiered Tray sat on the counter in the new ladie's house.  As dinner was being made, a nice hot bath was given, and then a lovely dry towel polished it until it shone.
Lucious fruits were displayed and an evening of fun by the family was enjoyed.  The Three Tiered Tray tried its best to look beautiful and to hold its head up with pride.  No fruit was ever served in a more lovely way than that night.

A number of days went by and the Three Tiered Tray sat on the counter.  Its gold colored metal rod was not exactly the same all the way through, and the lady decided to paint it white!!  Oh horrors thought the Three Tiered Tray!  To be PAINTED!  Oh what on earth was to happen NEXT????

JOY OF JOYS!! To get to hold such beautiful buttons!  Never has she thought of buttons being displayed on her lovely glass tiers.  The Three Tiered Tray had no idea what to think, because before she could even enjoy the lucious buttons on her tiers came a change.
And these with rhinestones!!

Purples, pinks and whites.  Her favorite colors!!  Forget the sticky sweets or the sloppy fruits!  Buttons and lovelies are just perfect she thought.  I'm destined for the best from now on!
And so the story of the Three Tiered Tray continues, because the best is yet to come!!

I have more ideas for my new tray, and will be sharing them in the future, but for now, I hope you enjoy these 'treats', for in fact, they're non fattening, and have no calories.  Yummy to look at too!

What a charming little story:) I love it when inanimate objects are personified!My favorite was the part about the tray not wanting the lady with the rowdy children to buy her!

Your tray is so pretty and great for my waistline.
It is nice to also have a fellow pastor's wife in my blog reader!(And one that also appears to be right-brain dominated like myself!)

Have a blessed week!
