It is hard to believe that August is half over already!  Summer will soon be ending and before it gets away from me
I have some catching up to do!

Several weeks ago I tried to make a Pyrex trade with the "Queen" of Pyrex Valerie of Vonlipi's Favorites.  She had these beautiful Delphite 'Bluebelle' bowls and I fell in love with them.  I did not have any Pyrex she is looking for but she traded with me anyway for a 'future' piece I'm sure I will find for her! 
I love these bowls and she included this little blue rabbit also!  Thank you my friend!  I will find you a special piece of Pyrex!

Tracy at Ms. Bake It had a give away for her 2nd Blogversary!  I was incredibly lucky to win an original painting by Jane McMullen who blogs at Artfully Graced
I love wrapped packages!
This whimsical painting of dragonflies is so much cuter then my photos show and the colors more vibrant!
I love this painting so much!  
Thank you Tracy and Jane!

I will be heading to see my sweet Grandson for a few days.  I will babysit one night so they can go to the movies!
A first date since Tiger was born! 
At four months old Tiger is a hard playing boy
A late night play session with Daddy
But when he finally sleeps
he is precious beyond belief! 

Hugs to all,

Oh no ... Tiger is precious sleeping OR awake! There is nothing as much fun as the first year of a baby's life -- I'd have a babe in my arms all the time if I could

(Like the blue bowls, too ... nice boy color!)

Hi Linda,
Tiger is just adorable...bet you can't wait to play with him.
Like your blue Pyrex bowls too...not an easy color to find and so pretty!

I'm glad you love the bowls my friend, it was a pleasure sending them to you.

Will we see the rabbit in a tablescape?

Charlie! LOVE those bowls - think of how much milk they would hold!?! One for me and one for mew!!! That Linda-Mom sure was nice to think of us!

"Her" and I both hope that Linda-Mom enjoys her time with the grandson. "Tiger"??? Does that mean we as cats have competition?!?! Oh dear...gotta admit though he is cute!

What a cutie! I think they are absolutely angelic when they are sleeping. I could watch them sleep for hours.

Love your new Pyrex bowls. I have never seen any that color - so intense and pretty. What a fun trade.

What lovely blue bowls! (Oops, I almost wrote bowels... that would not be so lovely.) Cute little bunny salt seller too!! You have a sweet friend! Your little grandson is so cute!! (How is your SIL doing? Is he healing well?)

laxsupermom said...

Love the new Pyrex! Such a great color! The painting is so whimsical and fun, and your little Tiger is such a doll! He's getting so big. It's nice that you get so much grammy time with him. Thanks for sharing.
