The Things I Love

A few weeks ago I grabbed my camera and walked around my yard capturing the things I love.
My beloved fork collection!

Jakes Garbage Hauling
A baby bathtub from a Romanian orphanage

My husband is so proud of this planter he made me.

My favorite old washtub.

Park benches I scored for the wedding we had this summer.

I love bringing new life to cast offs.  If it's wood or metal and has acquired a second skin, (moss or rust) and can hold something, you can bet it's going to find a home at my place.  Thanks for visiting, Sharon.

Harvest Time

This morning I went out to my garden to harvest a few veggies.  The weather today is beautiful and expected to be in the high 70's, which is extremely unusual for Washington State.   It is going to start raining tomorrow, so I thought I better get out there before the slugs do.

As I wondered around my yard today, I was thinking about what this time of the year means to me.......

The maple leaves are starting to turn

Back to school

Being so excited about playing a new instrument

 Sunflowers in my garden

 This is my little shop where I store all of my summer finds

 It is so full of wonderful treasures - can't wait for the Girlfriends Holiday Market......
