Good day all. I want to show off my gifts from Ann.
Not only did I receive a good quantity of fabric I could never find locally, she included an old fabric covered book,
a primitive pincushion, strawberry, and old quilt square,
another pincushion, old wool, another strawberry and quilt square, and a piece of linsey woolsey for the lining of my first wallet. Yes, she is getting me more and more interested in stitched wallets. Thank you so much Ann, I treasure your stitchery and am thrilled with the fabrics.
I found a few more pewter pieces and adore this little teapot. The other is a large pitcher, doesn't look very old but I like the patina.
Several emails from anonymous commenters have been going into spam and not showing in the post. Some contain questions that I can't answer because you are...well....anonymous. Still more have been changed to no-reply that weren't before. Anyway, I had two questions about the planter shown in the photo with Bud.
This was mom's planter, chipped, broken, and glued back with E6000. These are two clay pots that she painted white. The large one on the bottom is just turned upside down, and the top pot sets on it. I probably should glue or caulk the two together but I've used them separately some years. Mary, I can't reply to you ~ Bud and Nitzy ("the boys") are father and son. Nitzy is 3 and they think Bud may be around 6.
And for all I do for them, the trips to the outlet for bread, the 50# sacks of corn, the special licking blocks for nutrition, you would think I deserve better than this. The little devils are so comical and not afraid of me. Momma stares at the house waiting for food and when I go out, they scamper around as if asking me to play with them. The bold one comes within three feet of me.
Stuffed cabbage for dinner, apple pie for dessert.
Hope your week starts with a smile,
thanks for visiting.
