This month’s issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine contained a little surprize for me:
In the 1980’s I became interested in Finnish glass, mainly because my daughter was collecting pieces for her upcoming marriage.
I fell in love with these icy-looking candleholders (Iitalla), and have used them for many years. They are on my console table as part of Christmas decor…. (still need to get some new candles for them!)
I also have a few other pieces, including the vase below:
I am happy to see that someone else thinks they are still cool!

Thank you, Canadian soldiers, for the sacrifice you made, so that we could enjoy peace.

Last week we camped at Baker Park, near Minneapolis. Although in the photo below our trailer looks rather lonely, on the weekend the campground was almost full...including many brave souls in tents!
Attending Grace Church in Eden Prairie...(lovely building...seats 4200!)

Our family is especially thankful...
For many weeks our Grandson has been suffering pain in his hip and leg...doctors, physiotherapists, acupuncture, etc., ...none of it helped..many scary possibilities were put forward...many people praying....
Finally last Monday, a diagnosis...a benign tumour, painful, but operable...
