Friday Show and Tell

It's Friday already! Yay! Kelli over athttp://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ is hosting show and tell. Jump over there and see all the wonderful photos everyone is sharing!








Today I have my collection on Toby mugs. I really don't know how I came to start collecting these, but I have added a few. My Grandmother thinks they are the ugliest things she has ever seen and wouldn't be caught dead drinking out of one of them. Fortunately, they are just for decoration. Looks like someone didn't want their picture taken!
My Mother in law is home and doing fairly well. She has to be on oxygen for an undetermined time and it is very upseting to her. It was somewhat overwhelming to all of us when they came in and set up all the tanks and equipment, but after a good nights rest, she seems in a little better spirits this morning. I appreciate all of your concern and prayers. It's a wonderful feeling knowing that people you have never really "met" are sharing their concern. Thank you so much.

Have a blessed weekend!

I love your Toby mugs. I have 5 of them, 2 mug size and 3 small ones. The first small one I got belonged to my MIL and my daughter has bought the other 4 for me at various times.

Your mug collection is so cute.

And I'm so happy to hear that your mother-in-law is home and doing well. I hope she will be able to accept that the oxygen is necessary for a while. And just be glad she has it.

But I know, I have a couple of High School classmates who can't be without their oxygen and it is pretty daunting. But again, I hope she'll be pragmatic about it.

Hugs to her,
Mari-Nanci

I have not gotten around much this week to other blogs, so I had not read about your mother-in-law. I will be praying for her--and for your family as you care for her.

I think Toby mugs are amusing and make me laugh....I'm glad your mil is better. We lived beside mine and were her caregivers for several years....I miss her very much. She was like a mother....

Thanks for visiting with me..My daughter has blue and white toile in her kitchen below chair railing and Blueberry paint above...yellow accents...it's very pretty....Betty
