Glad to be back

Whew! I wish I could say we had a pleasant trip, but that would be a lie.

My FIL is getting to the point that he can't keep his opinions to himself and feels the need to openly be a bigot, in public, in a very loud voice. It's bad enough that DH doesn't want to be in his company and I can't say that I blame him.

We did have a good, but too short, visit with my BIL who had lost his mother. I knew his mother before I knew my husband. We were married quite a while before I realized that Hazel was my brother-in-law's mother. Small world.

Let's just say Friday was a very tense day and leave it at that.

We spent Saturday with DH's two daughters and went antique shopping. DH bought me four plates that match the glass pattern I collect as an early birthday present. I bought the covered butter and four cups. I really added to my collection this weekend. I've never seen the butter top and bottom together that were affordable. This was a once-in-a-lifetime deal. The pattern is Holiday or Buttons and Bows by Jeanette Glass Company (1947-1949). Not technically Depression Glass, but darn close.

In other news, I'm going to be a step-grandma in January. I'd be fibbing if I said I wasn't excited. I'm excited! We find out on August 18th if it's a boy peanut or a girl peanut. I need to make more bibs, and blankets, and a quilt, and.....I'm sure there's a ton of other things.

I've still got sewing stuff to share, but my laundry is calling so I'll have to catch up later.

I'm glad that you had a good time at least most of the time. Some people can be difficult to be around. Love the glass, very beautiful. Congratulations of the future grandbaby.

Congratulations on the grandbaby. My nanny had a covered depression glass butter dish. I loved it and wish I had it now, but I don't.

It's hard at best to lose someone but to have to deal with some of the ones still here is sometimes harder. Sorry for the loss of your friend.

Glad to see you made it back home. The glassware is pretty.

Congrats on the new baby-to-be.
