Hi all! I hope you've had a wonderful week and 4th of July! We sure did... this week we've made fun memories with family and friends. For the 4th of July, we went with my family to Sewanee, TN after reading about their 4th of July celebration in Southern Living. What fun! It's a small town, home of the University of the South, full of amazing architecture and some beautiful homes. This picture I wanted to share with you... it was my favorite home off the main road that we walked by several times... I just loved the simplicity of the old flag hanging on the porch.
Today we were gone all day, spending time with my husband's family and going to a birthday party. When I came home I had a present waiting for me from my sweet mom. Several years ago she gave me a set of Pyrex dishes for my birthday. They are the familiar Butterprint pattern (I believe it was originally introduced around 1957) and since then I have used the dishes every single day.
The set included a couple refrigerator dishes...
A butter dish...
And my favorite, three mixing bowls. I use all three, but I tend to use the largest bowl most frequently. Originally, there was also a larger nesting bowl that my mom was unable to find at the time.
So you can imagine my excitement when I opened her sweet out-of-the-blue present and found the largest bowl.
Oh, I love these dishes. I love the sweet country pattern and especially that these dishes seem virtually indestructible... they go through the dishwasher and have survived many "bumps and scratches" in my kitchen!
A bowl set complete...
And my new large bowl is already in use... filled with sweet blueberries from my mother-in-law and father-in-law's farm.
Hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend! This morning we just finished our latest outdoor project and I'm anxious to take pictures and share it!
