Hi all. Guess what? One of the does that waits for food, decided to walk over to the back garage door where I exit with her goodies. While she was waiting there, next to the garden, she became impatient and jumped the fence to eat the lettuce, swiss chard, tomatoes, peppers, and peas. I looked out the window around 8am and saw her within the fence, ran out, she casually jumped out and stood there. She wouldn't leave until I fed her. My neighbor has three huge unfenced gardens and they don't touch his, never did. He uses several motion activated water bursts, not a gentle sprinkler, that he purchased at our local garden center years ago. Works for him except for the occasional groundhog that's beneath the leaves. We've had our garden chewed to the ground with the exception of tomatoes, usually by the fawns every year. This year, tomatoes too.
Anyway, I don't like this tall drum. I don't know why but it bugs me. Maybe it's the bird. Something. Now that I see the photos I think it may be. The second photo isn't bugging me as much. So I think EBay will be getting it soon. Why EBay? Because I have no clue pertaining to price. The framing shop I used to mount needlework for is now also selling small furniture and decorative pieces. She asked me to start painting Santas again for her shop or to bring anything I'm currently doing, and she is very fair with seller fees. Patti's husband is starting to downsize her antique collections and found a shop that is thrilled with what he has. Lots of smalls, choppers, bowls, crocks, and treen, perfect for fill-ins with the shop's large pieces. I am going over this week to see if there is any I would like to purchase before it's gone. Right up to the end, Patti was joking about her collections...."don't use my mashers for kindling!".
Answering a few emails - the compression slip-on is an elastic tube that comes on a roll. They measure to your knee and cut it off, comes in S, M, and L with even compression. I wear it half way up my leg and fold it back doubled on the foot, thinking it makes it tighter but I'm probably wrong. Yes the ice cream was good but the bowl was too small.
The wing nut tightener is slotted to slip over the wings, giving you a larger surface to grab for adjustments. Sondra suggested plastic knobs with interior threads as replacements and my scroll frame sets have lots of them, including this stand from K's. Never used the frames or even noticed the knobs. They will certainly make it easier. Thanks Sondra, I will keep them and send the frames to Goodwill with the metal wing nuts.
My sister kept telling me about a crock pot corn that she takes to parties and everyone loves it. So I tried it. It's good but not as fabulous as she claimed. Well....the 2# bag disappeared at one two person meal, so maybe I should rethink this.
Very simple...1 two pound bag of frozen kernel corn, thawed
1 8 oz. brick of cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar.
Low temp for 4 hours. If you leave it longer, slide the lid open a little so it doesn't get soupy. Picture the corn in a white cream sauce when it's done. That's what it looked like before we ate it all.
Still stitching Ruth's sampler and enjoying the easy project.
Have a beautiful weekend!
Thanks for visiting.
