August 2012 Showcasing In My Kitchen

I am not sure where the month went, but July has been and gone and we are in to the second half of the year. It is cold and wet here in August 2012, and the promised snow has yet to fall. July being my birthday month usually means a lot of lovely kitchen gifts, but for the first time in forever, I did not have a tea party for my birthday so I received lots more birthday wishes than birthday gifts 🙂
