Why yes, yard sales can be included in a days' work. I stopped at a sale on my way to the grocery. I loved these dresser scarves and tea towel. I admire the needlework of others.
I knew the lady having the sale, so I felt safe buying this pillow for the porch. (No fear of bugs) The geranium print goes well with my potted geraniums on the porch.
A cute teapot from Japan. I thought I could use it in decorating, as I only make one cup of tea at a time here. I spent 4 dollars in all. Probably what I saved at the grocery with my coupons. LOL
The highway department was oiling and chipping the secondary road to town, so I took the back roads. This is a picture of the old school house near me.
It doesn't look so shabby at this distance. Still sad , that our county hasn't stepped up to save it...it's history !!
I found a yucca plant growing in with our lilies the other day. It's bloomed out now. Strange how this happens, a bird or strong wind must have planted it. We have a couple more under the pines.
I tackled this birdnest bush...Trimmed the sides, so I could get to the water faucet behind it. We have a wooden box that holds the garden hose , it sits nicely behind this bush . This bush was getting kind of wide, so I trimmed it back. It still looks round, so that's good. :):) I told Ted the other day, that the things I have planted that had "dwarf" on the tags, have not grown like a dwarf plant should. If the label says 2 feet high by 2 feet wide....it should not be 4 by 4. I think there must be a lot of mislabeling going on at nurseries.
Yesterday was just about the most perfect summer day ever. Well other than all the traffic on our road from everyone trying to get away from the oiling and chipping of Division road. Some driving way too fast for a country road.
Hope all of you are having a relaxing weekend. XO
