Depression Era Glassware

I love depression glass!

It’s just so vintage and pretty, and I love the history of it! The glassware was created right before the great depression and was often given away in products such as oatmeal as a free incentive to buy the product. I was reading the other day about how they would give out glass dishes at movie theaters when you purchased your tickets (just think of that!). Then when the movie ended there was always a loud crash of glass falling to the ground because everyone forgot the about the dishes in their laps!

Here are a few pieces that were once my grandmothers and are now in my hope chest:

Garden Plans

I have pretty much finished the “plan” for our 2013 garden. I am getting really excited!

I got to plan the garden this year and am super excited to get things going! Last year we grew sweet potatoes and beans successfully… don’t laugh, that was a great achievement!:) I am trying to step up this year and work harder, gardening is not my favorite thing in the world, but I am definitely getting more into it. I just hope I don’t fizzle out!;) We’ll see what all actually gets planted!

 Here is the “blueprint” I made of what we hope to get done this year:

I read about planting the potatoes and beans together as shown on the upper right of the plan and can’t wait to try it out!

Sweet Potatoes from 2012

We harvested sweet potatoes!!!

We finally dug up the sweet potatoes that we planted last year! We got a lot more than the last time that we grew them, and our biggest this year is about twice the size of the biggest last time around! Can you tell I’m a little excited?

The big one!

And we got just a little dirty! It felt like I had an extra layer of skin!

In Every Season Dance Recital Costume 2012

I thought I would share my costume from the 2012 dance recital, “In Every Season”. I took Jazz, our class was Winter Storm.:) It was hard sitting backstage waiting for all the other seasons to pass before we went on!

The 60D!!!

*Sigh* I’m in love! My new camera just arrived yesterday! Of course it had to be delivered right when I was on my way out the door… but it’s HERE!:) I’ve been playing with it all day and making a strap cover for it, I will have to post about that some time soon!
