Dump finds & the hood

Today was dump day. Slim pickings but I did get the cake stand. I know there was a dome to go on it and it probably broke but why not keep the stand? It has so many uses. The English ironstone bowl and the Santa mold are thrift store finds total 1.25.
Now the hood as in neighbor hood each night we take about a 15 min walk up our street. This is the view from our driveway. Still sunny on the mountain. I found these may flowers. They smell so beautiful. Because of all the nice weather they are a bit early.

And this is literally the end of the road. We live on a dead end road, there are about 9 houses on our road. so it is very quiet. My daughter spent her teen years trying to get out of here and now she wants to find a place just like this. Age gives you a different view of things.

What a gorgeous view from your driveway. And the May flower ~ lovely. Spring flowers are the best.
How funny about your daughter! How wonderful that she is near you. I've got one local son and one in Vegas. I miss him but he's got to live his life as he sees fit!
