Vintage Glassware

I recently attended the 41st Annual Collectible Glass Show presented by the Peach State Depression Glass Club in Marietta, GA. There were 28 national dealers who brought vintage glass from the 1880s through the 1970s.

This was the second year I have gone and I thought you might enjoy the sight of so much pretty glassware in one place!

South of the Border

Sometimes you just have to do it!

Without planning, without time to give it much thought, you just have to do it!

A table for la Fête nationale

I've been fascinated with French history and culture since I was a teenager. Six years of French language and literature classes turned me into a bit of a Francophile. I horribly mangle French when I speak it, but I used to be able to understand half of what I heard. I was better at reading French, and loved Molière and Rimbaud.

The Changing Garden

June brought new colors and shapes to the front garden.

Japanese iris (Iris ensata) are the last to bloom of the three types of irises I have. You'll notice that both sets of petals are flatter, forming a simpler, broader flower.

A Casual Fourth of July

Are you having a big celebration for the Fourth of July? We've been invited this weekend to a friend's cabin in the mountains to celebrate – there's sure to be several types of barbecue, side dishes and tasty desserts.

But on the Fourth itself, we'll be happily relaxing at home.
