A GLASS FULL OF SUMMERTIME



This was a darling birthday gift!


She has always been such great BIG SIS!
These glasses are nothing like I own and are simply FUN!
At first, I was not sure how I could use them for a special event...
perhaps when we have one of our
Texas Barbecues?

But, then, I dropped by
BJ's Sweet Nothings
and
found just the idea I needed....
leave it to our darling BJ for inspiring us all
with something cool, creamy and delicious..
and this time...
IT WAS NOT A BISCUIT!


I got out Mother's vintage blender and decided on a
Cherry- Vanilla Milkshake!


Her blender is in MINT condition.
I remember this from the time I was about eight years old..
she made the most fabulous frozen lime daiquri's in this!


Aren't they just darling?
Two from Mississippi
and
Two from Texas...
everything the state's represent...
I LOVE THEM!


I think I am going to add two more...
from
Maine of course!


How about a little Hershey Chocolate Syrup
on top of all that yummy Blue Bell!


I would say this is a pretty fun way
to cool off on this 100 degree summer day!


Another reason to have fun in July!


Now..please excuse me
while I sit back, relax
and dream about the beach........

  2. What fun glasses, Betsy! With that milkshake I'd be in heaven. Those old Oster blenders were just the best. I still have mine that I got for a wedding present 48 years ago. It looks similar to your Mother's. Stay cool, dear one. ♥

  3. Sadly, the last glass from my grandmother broke in this last move. Your glasses are keepsakes and that milkshake is looking really good right now, XOXO

  4. Oh YUM! Those are such cute glasses. I love them. I have an old Oster blender, too, that still works like a charm. I bet I have had it 30 years.

    Isn't that bj just the best? Can't believe she posted something besides BISCUITS though-lol xo Diana

    oh yeah- Happy Birthday!
