I bought this adorable sign from our TWINS over at TWICE AS NICE..

The sign was the hit of the shower...
It is so cute...and on the end, when the baby gets here in April,
G-daughter J. will put the baby girl's foot prints on it....
Isn't that the cutest idea !!
Please go over and look at TWICE AS NICE ...they have some
of the neatest things in their ETSY shop...
OOO, and J. had the BEST shower...shown above (with some BLUE, Sally)
is but a few of the fabulous gifts she received....

I used to cook with....
and these coffee pots make the BEST peculated coffee, EVER...

Hi Bj :)

I tried to comment 3 different times in the last week, but every time I would sit down and visit something would take me away from the computer... ie Annie ;)

Anyway, I always read, even if my daughter won't let me make time to comment LOL

Your grand baby is absolutely precious! I love that sign too and the footprints will be darling :)

Have a wonderful Monday!!

love,
ruzzer

Morning Dear BJ, I just had to drop by to see what cute things you came up with and as usual, you didn't disappoint me. The sign and the Grandaughter are the cutest. I have a few pieces of the corning ware left also.
Hope this is a Happy Blue Monday for you and yours.
Love....

Hi BJ...what an adorable sign...the twins do make the cutest things. I have some of the old Corning too, but my coffee pot went by the way side...What a sweetie pie grandbaby all decked out in denim! OK, I'll have me a hunk of Geroge Clooney today!

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

The sign is adorable! You lucky grandma you...what a precious in her denim blue! Happy Blue Monday to you!

Smilingsal said...

She's darling and smart enough to dress in blue! Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.

Twice as Nice said...

We're so glad your grand daughter liked it!! We also had a baby shower yesterday and she loved it too.

I have a corning ware coffee pot. I don't use it all the time because I don't have the patients to wait for that first cup of coffee in the moring but it does make THE BEST coffee. My MIL has a stainless and she uses it everytime we get together and the coffee is SO GOOD!!

Have a great day you sweet sweet friend.

Debra said...

Love these fabulous blue shots! Happy Blue Monday! Blessings to you!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

BJ, love all your blueness here, but I am coveting that blue cross (sorry, Lord!). But out of all of it, that precious, precious baby takes the prize... even over Brad Pitt! ;-)

Happy Blue Monday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Southern Lady said...

What a precious grandbaby, BJ ... You can just see "sugar" dripping from her sweet little cheeks. What a doll!

I love the sign and the fact that it will become a keepsake with the babies' feet prints makes it even more special.

Hope your "Blue Monday" is filled with sunshine.

Sincerely,

Janie

Adrienne said...

Hi BJ -
Love that cute little sign. What a great idea! I have a few pieces of Corningware left and I still use them a lot. Remember when they were the latest, greatest thing to happen in our lives?

Morning BJ, I have been unable to link up with Sally for weeks. Her linky thingy is never there for me. I feel picked on. LOL I think Mr. Linky is up right after Sally posts. That is usually around midnight. Believe me I do not have an answer for this one. sigh. Beverly usually links me. The worst thing is I can never respond to everyone because I can't see who is listed. I go to Sally's comments and answer from there. What a pain that is. Whaaaaaaa. OK, I'm feeling better now.

I do love your sign and with the baby's foot prints soooo cute. Our grands are what makes our world go round. How we do love them. My neighbor, a long time ago had a Corning coffeepot and I agree it was the best coffee ever. Your grand in her denim blue is precious.
I have to wait for Brandan, he is 20, to get married and have more babies to love. I am not rushing him. My youngest grand is 10.

Love the hunks and you too.

Hugs...Jeanne

Mom in High Heels said...

OMG, my mom used to have those Corning dishes!

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Love the sign, BJ. That's too cute.
I used to have a Corning perculator like that. Before coffee makers came on the scene.

Raggedy Girl said...

Love the hunks, still like to cook with corning ware but my oh my is that one sweet baby girl!!

Judi said...

Hi BJ
Your granddaughter is gorgeous...such a sweet smile.

Don't you just love that corningware? I have no more of that set and I am not sure where they ahve gone over the years. I really wish I had some...I'll have to keep my eyes open...

Thank you for sharing all the lovely BLUES...have a great day!

Sweetie said...

What a cute sign and adorable baby. I remember when Corning Ware was the "in" thing. I received a set of pink and white bowls as a wedding present. I wish that I still had them. Happy Blue Monday!

Julie said...

Hi There BJ - wow, since you posted about my DH, my blog followers sure have increased. It makes me feel so special when I read all the well wishes and prayer warriors that there are out there! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Meggie said...

The sign is sooooo cute! What a special gift!

imjacobsmom said...

Cute sign! I bet it was a hit! Be careful using your Corningware coffee pot - remember there was a recall on them because the handles usually broke.....we still have ours around here though. I have a few pieces that I still use for certain things. Isn't that funny - they probably wouldn't taste the same if I didn't use the same dish - LOL! ~ Cute Granddaughter! ~ Robyn

kbbryant said...

Oh yes, the corningware is very familiar. That grandbaby is adorable.

Becky said...

That sign is adorable. Nice blues all around. I have the corning teapot and a small casserole dish that matches yours. :-) I really like it.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Blue Mondays are most definitely not blue with you, bj. Anything but. And that little fat tyke in the blue outfit...could just squish her. What a cutie! I haven't seen that Corning Ware in ..years. Suddenly, I miss mine and wish I had it. I was so proud of that coffee pot when got it. :)
Hugs for the blue.
Mona

Hello, Happy Blue Monday and Pink Saturday. I'm running behind on visits. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment. I remember those corningware baking dishes. I had some from shower gifts in the 70's. Your pink was so pretty this week too.
Bless you, Shirl
