Good morning Friends ~
Boy, oh boy have we had some rain. We have another almost three inches predicted over the next couple of days. I just hope it isn’t raining when it’s time to go to and from work, as I hate driving in the rain. I haven’t been able to mow this week, and hopefully will get to once it dries up around here. I’m working the next three days, so no garden puttering for me.
Yesterday I worked most of the day on getting 5 listings in my Etsy shop. Sheesh, that really takes time that you don’t think about. Creating is so much more fun, even though that takes time too. I’ve still got more to upload, all in good time.
Here are some filet crochet pieces that I will be uploading.
My friend Nanci, who with her husband own the shop next to the one where I work, gave me maybe 75 spools of sewing thread. I don’t do much sewing, so I got out a fine crochet hook, size 14, and a stronger pair of eye glasses and crocheted this tiny flower. It’s about 1 inch in size.
Here are the two stove parts that were rusty. DH got the rust off then coated them with ospho for retarding rust. He has painted these two pieces with black high heat paint I just don’t have a picture of that yet. They look really nice now.
Here is a pic of the fridge with maple trim that our neighbor across the street gave us a few years back. He screwed the trim on using brass screws for taking off easily.
This is the cover for the stove. DH put formica on all surfaces.
The little sign is original to the caravan camper, so we put it back on the cover.
When we did our errands the other day, we noticed a wharehouse type place that is only open certain times, and was open for a special sale so we went in. I got these two pillow shams for $2 each, they are leaning against our double size headboard, so you can see how large these are. I had the feather pillows, and the shams fit perfectly. These are going in the caravan.
This is a peak into the secret garden. You can see the caravan roof behind the hedge. I took this picture to show the first passion vine flower growing over the entry into the secret garden. The vine on the left is Confederate jasmine, no longer in bloom.
Prosperity roses about at their end.
These next pics are of a yellow double datura bloom. I grew this from seeds from Nell Jean, of SeedScatter. The blooms have a deliciously sweet scent and I just love their shape and color.
That’s it for now.
Thank you all for visiting and the comments you leave behind. It means a lot.
