Hard to believe that our little grandson had his first birthday on Sunday Sept.20th.. Time sure does fly. We were able to get Matthew after his other birthday party. We had a great time!! I can't believe how much one can love as a grandma!!!! We love you Matthew!!!

Well at our Mother-Daughter banquet last year I won a dozen of roses that were just beautiful and they were in a crystal pitcher that was just as beautiful, but for SOME reason I wasn't allowed to have the pitcher( although it was clear ro me that it should have been mine). Among my flea market searches I found a pitcher like it so I wanted to show it off especially to Amy....
I have been wanting to get a couple of pieces of dishes that my mom and grandmother had. Well I was finally able to find some that I could afford. The plate with the wheat design was the same pattern that my Grandma Krodel had, I remember eating pumpkin pie on plates like these also I remember eating chili out of the soup bowls.. Then the pattern of the pitcher Mom had the whole set at one time and she said that this pitcher was her favorite and I really got a bargain on this one. It's so funny how just a dish can unblock memeories from your past. I am happy to add these to my collection.
