Can't Wait for Fall

I know it's early but it's terribly still hot and humid here in Florida. Maybe blogging with fall colored Polish pottery will make me feel cooler.  Wishful thinking?

 Anyway, I pulled out my Polish pottery plates with orange in them, which I think make them somewhat fall-ish.
 The orange flatware set was given to me one Christmas by my son and daughter in law. They're perfect for Fall.
 I just cut some flowers from the garden, mostly santan flowers, also known as ixora and jungle flame, and some white pentas to put in my little ducky vase, for the centerpiece.

 I even dugged out my PP pumpkins from the garage. Their faces are cut out on the other side.

 Isn't this server/baker pretty? I love it! It's probably the most expensive single Polish pottery I bought, but I couldn't resist. I swore to myself after we moved to Florida and downsized, that I wouldn't buy anymore.  But, this pandemic is making me crazy and bored and it forces me to browse and watch live polish pottery shows. Their beauty is just so enticing and I really cannot blame myself cause I am but just human.
Besides, I don't go anywhere so I save a lot from not buying clothes, shoes and makeup, lol.
 I've had these glasses with maple leaves from many years ago. They were only from the Dollar Store. I have Polish pottery stemware too but I thought of using these instead.

 Now, you can see the faces on the PP pumpkins, standard peacock and mosquito (sometimes they call it nature) patterns.

I hope you enjoyed my Fall tablescape, it's more like a transition from summer. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your summer. I know it is starting to cool off in the northern regions. Enjoy it and please stay safe, everyone!

The Baby of the Family, Avery Grace

I better blog about our littlest granddaughter before she becomes a teen-ager, lol. Introducing Avery Grace, born October 3, 2019.

She was a big baby at 8 lbs considering how petite her mom is.
 Her big sister, Reese, was so happy, after having 2 big brothers, she finally has a sister.
Her mom and I did zumba until 2 weeks before Avery was born. In the beginning, the baby could not sleep and just cried. We had to dance with her and do lunges continuously while holding her, before she could fall asleep. It was very tiring. Good thing, we were 4 people who took turns, her mom, dad, big brother and me.
Avery's baptism.

Now, she is the happiest baby. You just look at her and she smiles :-). Her brothers and sister dote on her.

She only cries when you say "NO" to her, lol! Awww, poor baby!
She is getting big too fast. I hope she slows down because I think she will be the last baby of the family.
 I am glad I got to finally post my grandbaby's pictures. 
Thank you for stopping by. You all stay safe.
