MugSwap 2013 ~ Instagram

over the summer i came across a photo of a mug swap on instagram! i think it was a photo from the fabulous Jamie of Raising Up Rubies.  i knew instantly i was in! i’m a totally coffee junkie! after explaining my love of vintage mugs i received the most awesome vintage mug from Holly in Texas! she included coffee, biscotti and little gifts for my girls too! her note was genuine and i knew i had made an instant long distance instagram friend! and because i couldn’t decide on one mug to send off for Kelly (who i was paired up with), i sent her two and of course some Tim Hortons coffee to enjoy in them! Kim from runs this fabulous program and i thank her so much for organizing it all!  in a nut shell i loved the entire #mugswap2013 process and can’t wait to participate in #mugswap2014!


so beautiful! :)

that mug is amazing.
i haven’t seen anything like it.
except it reminds me of some of the vintage christmas decorations my grandma has in her house – with the gold lame.
love it all. :)

thanks for being a part of it!

oh dear me! i am in love with that gold deer mug! so fun!!

what an amazing vintage mug!! so unique and fun. :)

Pool fun ~ family Franklinville, NY

it’s been a HOT summer so far!  earlier this month i decided to order an underwater camera so we could capture some of the fun moments in the pool!  i decided on an Olympus Tough camera (in a pretty blue color) and these were all taken on it’s first trip into the pool!  my niece and older daughter had a blast playing around with the camera!  i took most of these photos but the girls also took some of each other!  now we just need them to open their eyes underwater!
