I've tried to log in daily to check in on the blogs that I follow, it has been a quiet refuge for me these past weeks. Here are few pictures of some favorite finds from earlier this summer. I loved this old magazine, and it was just purrfect for me; imagine kittens and sewing all together on one cover.
This isn't a real good picture but this is a great red plaid bib apron, it fits right into my collection of old aprons.
I can never find enough baskets and this one is just perfect.
And now another birdbath story.
Some of you may remember my post about Miss Pattie's birdbath last winter. Well leave it to my dear brother. Just several weeks before he passed he came home and said "you know that other birdbath base that you have. The one that looks like the old tree; that you've been upset about for years because you could never find a top that would look good on it. Well I was helping the neighbor that moved into Miss Bailey's house do some yard work and found the top of her old birdbath covered in grass and weeds. She was going to throw it away but she was glad to give it to me and it's not the same as the one you had but I think it will work." Well he brought it home and yes it does work and it is just beautiful. There's another birdbath story too but that will have to wait till another time. What precious memories these birdbaths have for me now.
I found these two old pin keeps, I love these.
And on a hot sticky Saturday morning treasure hunting trip I found these two snowy paintings at a yard sale. I couldn't resist them. They were so cool and refreshing and they will be just perfect to display with my snowmen come winter.
