Sparks are flying around the blogosphere again today, as we join in with Alyce, At Home With Books, to showcase our Saturday Snapshots.

Happy Mother’s Day weekend, for all the mothers in the blogosphere.

As a grandmother, I often share shots of my grandkids; today will be more of the same, with the “then and now,” theme.

But before I do that, I’d like to show off my toenail bling…yes, that’s what I said!

Tiny glitter on the big toes….


To make me feel a little more festive for Mother’s Day…lol

And now for granddaughter Aubrey, who is fifteen, like Fiona.

I have many toddler photos, but this next one makes me smile:  it’s a doll created from a toddler photo of Aubrey and given to me one year at Christmas.

Finally, here’s a shot taken a few months ago, in which Aubrey is showing off her baby brother Silas dressed up in his fancy duds.


Now I’m eager to visit all of your snapshots, so please leave your links!


    1. I’d never be able to do it myself! I am so uncoordinated…so this “bling” will only happen occasionally. I almost didn’t showcase them, as I think my toes are odd and misshapen…lol (from the years of cramming them into pointed-toe shoes!).

      Thanks for stopping by, Staci…enjoy your weekend!


    1. I don’t have a lot of pedicures, but usually “launch” the season with one. The bling was the manicurist’s idea…

      I am now happy to don the sandals.

      Thanks for stopping by, Trish….enjoy your weekend.


    1. I’ve toted that doll around from various homes….when I and the other grandmother got ours as gifts, the other grandma used to drive around LA with hers in a car seat. Funny, huh?

      Thanks for stopping by, Marie, and have a great weekend.


  1. Silas looks a lot like Fiona when she was little. I suppose in 15 years, we’ll be looking at pictures of him all grown up. Nice toes. I wanted a pedicure for Mother’s Day, but I’ve been grading papers all day. Hope yours is nice. Here’s Mine


    1. Thanks, Paulita…I spent most of the day today with my son and family…and with my youngest grandson. Tomorrow it’s brunch with my daughter…so my computer time has been nonexistent…lol

    The toes look great. I need a pedicure now that it is almost sandal season:) Love the before and after grandchild shots as well.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
