Sudberry tray, a table, trees, and frogs

Hello all you wonderful people taking the time to visit with me.  Hope all is well.  My computer died yesterday, blue screen and all, then resurrected with a crazy beeping sound.  Maybe this is why I'm having problems printing.  Still unable to comment the majority of the time, but I think the new router is the culprit since it's claiming I'm offline even though I'm not. I have to make sure all my labels are saved so I'm thankful it's back on.  If you are interested in the Sudberry tray I showed a while back, click on the "for sale" page under the header.  Sorry-sold.
Since Mark is on vacation, we've been working on Fall chores (window washing, spouting clean-up, leaf blowing, grass cutting, furniture storage, yadda yadda) and I'm only stitching in the evening, between Bio-Freeze and heat wraps.  Here's where I am after removing the right side of the wreath's vines TWICE.  Now I can finally move on and get this finished.  

This is the new table I purchased with the wood bowl the other day.  It's had most of the paint scraped from it and I'm glad now that I finally brought it home after three days of indecision.

We had such beautiful weather for two days so I took advantage of the warmth and sprayed Dawn on the grapevine tree and hosed it off.  It's a much darker brown now without all that dust!  I should have made a smaller one.  I originally made this for the front deck, but never did put it out. 

While I was putting pots and tubs away into the garage storage, I decided to bring down a few trees.  I'm giving the others away and only using the small ones.  I decided on these seven.  Yes, seven.  Keep in mind, some are left as is, no lights, no ornaments. and all are small.  I'll be sticking them into baskets and crocks soon.  Mark was golfing and when I was taking the largest one down the steps, I went down two instead of one and got both shins.  Yikes.  Missed the incision by an inch.  I don't know why I'm concerned about the blue bumps from the varicose veins because they always blend nicely with the bruises. 
Our day started with Gas House Eggs.  We toast the bread first, then cut the hole, and spread with melted butter mixed with lots of Worcestershire sauce.  Sprinkled it on the eggs, too.  Our day would have ended with chocolate bars dipped in peanut butter sprinkled with crushed pretzels if a piggy hadn't chowed down all the Halloween candy.

Haircut again tomorrow and hopefully label printing.  I need to devote several days to printing and painting and since it's turning cold and rainy, that may be very soon. 
Have a great start to your week, thank you for visiting, and stay safe!

Yummy looking eggs--just what I feel like eating! The table is just perfect. But goodness, your account of the stuff you're accomplishing makes me feel tired!

Margaret said...

Since I've been out of the loop for a while, I had to backtrack to see what that piece is you're stitching. Love it! So pretty! Love Mary Beale! Love your trees too! I want just one tree someday. :D Nice desk! Definitely a good decision to purchase it.

barbara said...

That table is to die for! And your trees - they are so sweet!!! My mouth is watering at the food you've mentioned though .... ;)

Gabi said...

What a gorgeous table. LOVE your stitching too. Same goes for the trees. You're always an inspiration.

We make Gas house eggs, too for break lie or lunch. But I have never heard them called that before.

Chris said...

Those eggs look fabulous. I made some killer homefries yesterday that would have been perfect with this.
Your trees look great. I am looking forward to seeing all of your holiday decorating.
I hope that you don't take anymore tumbles and just get healed up.
Lovey table and stitching progress!

The ornament, the trees, the eggs ... they all look great! However, I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE that table!!! It is exactly what I've been trying to find for years! Lucky you : )

Vickie said...

Goodness Marly! YOU stay safe! Take care of those legs of yours.♥
Glad you decided to get the table, it's great.

Bertie said...

Are you somewhat accident prone Marly! do be careful now!
The table is a beautiful find, looks wonderful.
The tree display is unusual and I do love it, you really should dabble in professional home advice:))
Have a wonderful week.

Hi Marly! Love the new/old table--sweet display. I'm trying to get back in the swing of blogging, but I still have 2 shows, custom orders, and a store to fill...twice! It's tough! I think we need to put you in a bubble til after the holidays with dangerous glass balls, pokey tree branches, and burning ovens lurking around!!--Jan

The new old table looks very functional ... LUV it. Did you make that vine tree? WOW, looks like it was a job ... LUV it too. Yes I am a collector of trees but, am not parting with any just yet. If it were up to Scrooge, they all would be trashed ...hahaha ... He walks around humming and whistling Christmas song most of the day.
Going to get our ears lowered, all 3 of us. TTYL...

Have a Blessed day,
Barb

That table is so nice! Love the trees, too, especially the grapevine tree! I'm glad you missed your incision when you fell--youch!

Anne said...

Oh Marly...so sorry to hear about the blue death screen :( I hope it's all worked out now. I love all your trees! They look so perfect and prim! You take care of yourself. It seems everytime I pop onto your blog I am reading how you injured yourself :(

Hugs!

Maggee said...

Hi there! Can't wait to see the Mary Beale wreath finished! I know you will whip through it once you hit your stride! I am in total agreement with everyone else--LOVE the table! Great find! Take care on those stairs!! Hugs!

What a lovely table you've gotten I hope you don't have any more problems with your WIP!

Loraine said...

I'm glad you are okay! I cringed when you said you missed the incision by an inch. That could have been bad!
Love the new table, and the trees! Were ever do I find trees like that? I've searched high and low. You live in the area of the country for them, I tell you.
I'm sending you something. Look for it in the mail this week!
Have a wonderful day. :)

So glad you didn't bump your incision and that you're okay.
I really love the little table you found and think it looks so sweet with the primitive chair.

Breakfast looks good - I've never made eggs like that, may have to give it a try.

Ginny said...

I love your new table! The way you have it arranged looks like something out of a magazine. :)

Linda said...

I would love to know where you got those wonderful trees. I've been looking for a 'The Bishop's Wife' tree for many years.
