Tag - we're IT!!!! - AND a Special Nomination

Woo have probably seen this game on some other great blogs. The Fifth Folder Fifth Photo game of tag. Khyra was tagged recently and decided to pass it along. So we thought it looked like fun and here we go!!!

Here's how it works...

Open a document or file folder,
Click on the fifth folder and then the fifth photo.

Post the photo and describe it.

We really weren't sure what we would come up with because Mom is always taking lots of pictures. We thought it would be one of us, but no, look what we found.

This is a beautiful glass bowl that Mom received from her cousin for Christmas this past year. Her cousin lives in West Dennis, Massachusetts, which is located on Cape Cod. It was the perfect choice for Mom who really misses the ocean. She was born in Massachusetts and spent 37 years there and another 10 in Connecticut. The closest she can come to an ocean in Kansas is the one the AO4 found, the Kansas Ocean.

Since the bowl is so beautiful, we have included a few more shots of it. It was created by Michael Magyar, who has a glass studio in East Sandwich, MA.

The blue shades in the glass are meant to mimic waves and the blue shade is one of Mom's favorites.

The gift box that held the bowl also included a bag of real beach sand from Cape Cod and a collection of miniature shells and starfish. If woo bigify some of the pictures, you can see more detail.

Here is a link to the artist's work:

Congrats and what a pretty bowl. Do you get to drink out of it since it's from the sea? Is the water salty?

Ahhhhhh a pretty biped and a beautiful dog.

Congrats on the nomination - those are two bee-roo-tiful babes, if you ask me!
That glass is so pretty! It does remind me of the Kansas Ocean. I saw sand there and everything. Oh, sure... it was on the road and mom said it was "sand and salt" from when it snowed, but I'm sure someone tracked it there from the beach. I'll have to look for pretty shells next time we go down!
Play bows,
