I Have a Bowl Problem

This made me smile, a happy little bee was on my windshield
one. morning before work.

This is A Nicolas Mosse bowl I bought for .50 

This bowl is pricey new and I just love it..

Then for 1.00 I got this one at a church sale pottery,
cream color so cute.

And this one at the same sale 3.00 a very pretty green..

They look kind of cute stacked.

Or filled with peaches from our neighbor.
They had to pick them tonight because they caught a bear
picking what he wanted.

This is not a bowl but bowl like shape.

It is a plant pot hull and free from Ta Da Dump!
No cracks great shape.

So you don't think I only buy bowls, how cute is this 
We have been busy some hiking and family time.
Miss B got new glasses and she looks so grown up:( but so stinking cute!
The end of summer is here, the trees have already started their 
change. I love the fall but it is not long enough. 
I hope you have all been enjoying the last of summer too,
because if the old farmers almanac is right we are in for it again this winter.

Selling A Cutter...

I hit a thrift this week and found some goodies.
Can you tell I am always thinking of the kids at Easter and
every other holiday?

Family cookout on husband's side. Lots of fun our son in law in the green, husband's brother next to him,
and  husband in the straw hat. They were playing corn hole and by the looks of it son in law was winning.

There was lots of great food and 
Chocolate cake! Sweet Miss B!

And cousins (only one missing) my sweet daughter in the white.

now on to the cutter

I am selling this cutter that I have never used. I think it is 
also used for the strips for braiding. I did buy it used.
You can see it here! On ebay.
A full week ahead and a big thrift sale on Friday. 
Have a great week everyone.

What's Been Happening You Ask????

the super moon was beautiful I took a thousand pictures
but noting came out as beautiful as it really was.

We went to the science center. who? Well husband, Miss B
and ME!

There were lots of animals to see. Hey you look very well fed
have you been in my hosta????

Miss B had a blast playing with all interactive displays
Later we went swimming to say we were tired was an understatement.

We have friends with chickens so what a pleasure
to have two dozen given to us when we saw him at 
the town meet and greet. (The dump:)

I made big flowers for the window of the book store I manage.
I have gotten so many compliments on them, all from old book pages.

We also got our first cord of wood delivered.
Husband went to drop off a check for the wood 
and took a picture of his wood wall! This wood is all sold!(That is a full size tractor)
We have been getting our wood from this guy for several years.
and lately wood dealers have been hard to come by so he is getting swamped with requests, so glad he is taking good care of us.
We are off to a family cook out this weekend and Sunday I have no plans yahoo. I have been working a lot of hours lately love the money hate how tired I am.
There is nothing like a dream to create the future.
