@annwood put out a challenge (and a giveaway!) to create a silly bug. I don't normally do silly but this was fun and good for me! He's needle felted and the wire legs, wings, and antenna were added with wool patches, needle felted on. #sillybugclub I may just leave my little fella out in the garden too. #needlefelting #wool
I knew when I saw this table it was going to be perfect...somewhere...with a little shifting of things, this is the place! (See previous post) #thriftstorefinds #thrifting
Reasons #2221-2228 why I love thrifting. Today we had a surprise chance to stop at a thrift store I've only been in once before and I am thrilled with our treasures. The picnic basket is for the girls who have worn out the basket they'd been using. The end table is soooo wonderful!! It's is going to find a home in a few minutes. A Hull vase and a silver tray with patina are always welcome here. And that art? Original pen and watercolors on roughly cut mat boards of city scapes of New Orleans signed and dated Reynolds 1978 for 99 cents each. #score. . #thriftstorefinds #thrifting #wicker #hull #silverplate #picnicbasket #originalart
End of summer picnic! With @bonnieleahmartin 🍞🍊🌳🐞🐛🐜🏵🌼🐜
Late this afternoon I gathered a beautiful basket of blossoms, had a quick photo shoot with them and then @farmerrandy showed up early so we found some shade in the #tankgarden for a beer. Are coozies as favors at wedding receptions a thing across the whole country? We have a stack of them!

Today...on hold on our land line with customer support to fix @claire_madeline brand new computer straight out of the box. Hours last week. A couple more hours this week after they mailed us a jump drive to reinstall Windows 10. Because when it came, windows wasn't activated. New computer. For real. And it wasn't just a matter of clicking a box to activate it. Patience. More patience Speaker phone. Nora sit here and listen for the guy while I go finish dinner. Patience. But it's fixed! Woohoo!
So much beauty. 🌼🍀❤💚 . #flowers #flowergarden #cockscomb #sunflowers
Here we go again! 6th and 7th grade. One so excited and one...not so much. #firstdayofschool #firstdayofschool2018
Our granddaughter's birthday party was today. It was themed Secret Garden Tea Party Bridget turns three let's have tea. So @bonnieleahmartin and I taught her to drink tea with her pinky extended or so we tried!
Slow Motion Monarch! There were two I saw this morning along with two types of hummingbird moths. So much buzzing and business in the garden. Swipe: I'm going to dry this assortment of cockscomb. . #tankgarden #cuttinggarden #cockscomb #monarch #monarchbutterfly #slomo
Snipets of a centerpiece I'm working on. The thought was I'll bring flowers in a teapot and the thought exploded into this, but what a fun time exploring the possibilities and looking for the right woodland flowers and greenery. My granddaughter's 3rd birthday party is Secret Garden Tea Party. Of course a 3 year old doesn't need a centerpiece, but when your mind gets to working...her party was an excuse to make something fun. 😊 . . #secretgarden #teaparty #floralarrangement #flowers #flowergarden #woodland #flowerarrangement
A few garden video clips from this morning. 🌿🏵🌼🍀
White cosmos that volunteered back from last year. Thank goodness, because I didn't plant any this year. Garden note: Remember to plant white cosmos every year! #cosmos #cuttinggarden #flowers
A big favorite of mine! I remember my grandmother having #cockscomb hanging in her basement with newspaper under it to catch the seeds. ❤🌺
