a busy weekend

I guess you love the one your with:0)                                   
I hope that you have done your exercises like Miss Baby!
She visited her pepe and gramie this weekend, she showed off all of her skills.
She gets up on her feet and hands and lifts one leg in the air and balanced there.
I got such a laugh with her!

I went ta da dump and got a pretty good haul.
this is pewter candlesticks.

and under vintage, I love the candle holder I am going to paint it a nice old green for my porch.
and that is a little glass flower frog.

I found a couple of things for Miss baby they are soaking in hot water and soap as I write.

a funny little flower pot for the frig.

And this book. I looked up the person and he lived from the middle of the 1700's to the early 1800's
I know it is in bad shape but has my ship come in? Is this the first million dollar dump find?

The paper is handmade, I can't find a date on the book. I will keep looking to see if it is worth any thing.

The weather this weekend was beautiful 80's so we went kayaking on a little pond. There are no houses on this pond and David and I were the only ones there. So we paddled with the loons just beautiful.
David was getting in his kayak I offered help getting him launched nope he could do it himself.
Splash in he went. It was only ankle deep but he was soaked! At first I was shocked and then we started laughing He changed his shirt and off we went. On the way back in he wasn't looking at the big rock just under the water. I am getting out of the kayak and he yells "I am sitting on this big rock,I am stuck." I started laughing so hard and so did he so he was having a hard time pushing himself off. It felt good to have a laugh. (But his cell phone now no longer works.)

I hope your weekend was fill with laughter and fun.

I can't believe how big the baby has got. She is darling. They are so funny as they get more personality.

Hello Cathy,
Thank you for your sweet visit and lovely comments.
Your frogs cetainly seem happy together ;o) and Miss Baby is too cute! Love the exercise regime. You've got some great things there again, the book looks makes me wonder how folk can dump such marvels?
So pleased you and David had fun at the weekend - it sounds like you have a real hoot! Hope things are progressing well. Best wishes to you both.

Oh, I'm so glad you had such a great weekend. Your kayaking adventure made me smile. (P.S. Put hubby's cell phone in a bag of rice for a couple of days)
Miss Baby looks like she is auditioning for the next generation Jane Fonda Workout video. Lol

Girlfriend every time I here the word dump I think of you hahahah but in a good way. I am really jealous of all your finds. I hope this book turns out to be your Million Dollar Baby

What a cute picture your granddaughter is posing. This is just too precious. babies are so much fun to watch, just like little kittens.

Sorry I couldn't leave a comment before even though I read your post. My house has been so busy these last couple of days with having my daughter's family sleep over until their house was ready to move in today.

What a good haul you did from the dump. Amazing what you can find. Hugs, JB

Julia said...

What a cute picture of your granddaughter. Just too precious. Wow, you really got a good haul from the dump. I hope that this book is valuable, check it up on the web.

Seeing those loons on the lake reminds me of a vacation we took at White Lake Ontario. I just love their sounds. All the best to you and David. Hugs. JB

Found your blog through some other one I now cant remember. Sigh, over 50 brain! But found it very enjoyable. I wish we had dumps here in CO but dont, our thrift stores have nothing but mass produced junk, and the things you find at the dump are in antique stores and cost a mint! Those pewter candle sticks are awesome. Well I wish I lived in NH but need a lottery win to do so. Glad someone has great dump luck and saves the wonderful things of yesteryear that I love too. Thanks for shareing, Kate
