Before I show you my treasures for this Tuesday, I want to thank you all for the love and support that you have shown me since I wrote about Princess's passing. We played with her ball right before I took her to the vet and she was happy. The vet told me she had no temperature and did not appear to be in pain. Just very low blood and protein counts and all that blood. So although she must have been uncomfortable, she was not in any extreme suffering and for that I am so very grateful. I think I forgot to include that in my post, so I just wanted you to know. Thank you so much -- you are all such a wonderful and caring group of people my dear friends.
I also want to welcome lootielou, a new follower to my blog. And also, it was our first anniversary, Princess's and mine as bloggers, on Saturday, August 14, 2010, the day she died. Now I have to carry on by myself. Samson is the only dog I see with blogging potential, plus he is so darned cute...we'll see.
Sometimes when you are sad, it feels good to go back home. This is my maternal grandmother as a young woman.
And these are her Bavarian china coffee cups.
They are exquisite in purple, gold and white.
This little cup also belonged to her. I don't know what purpose it served, but it is very pretty and one treasure I truly love.
