In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

JUNK DRUNK and other stuff

A friend called me last week. She is going to have a garage sale, and do I want to "come over and look at her outdoor chairs before she puts them in the sale?" Uhhh, yeeeeahhhh.... We bought two Adirondack chairs, which need painted and I did not get a pic of them yet. They are at our new house already.

I got six of these little metal cones. They are for the garden.

You put a tea light in them and stick them in the ground. Not where my Shug mows though. The light shines through the flowered opening at the top of the cone.
And I got these herb garden markers...I want to get back into herbs again. Before I got busy with being Coordinator of this town's Community garden (I'm not doing that right now) and running kids, I was very much into herbs.

And these were made by a local artist....

who I happen to know. Her name is Patty Beck.

And this folks.......

I mean THESE, not this....THESE...are what made me


Five quilts

and two comforters!

All old....

All hand made.

I think it's my year for quilts.

They are piled in a chair on the front porch right now,

waiting to be moved to our new house. I have moved most of the other blankets, and my warm winter sweaters already. Why? Well, because it got up to 88 degrees last week. And it was just as I suspected...we'd have winter...then we'd have humid summer....with no spring. But what I didn't know until now is that Mother Nature is menopausal...blasting us with cold weather again. The oldest boy I watch went on the front porch yesterday and got one of these quilts to snuggle up in.

The youngest boy just used Winston's afghan, which is quickly becoming a well loved afghan.

I went and got some brightly colored flowers at the grocery store. And layered some clothes that I still have here at the house. I am NOT turning the heat back on. I told the boys if they'd get off the couch and help me pack they'd warm up!
