Slow 'round here..
Slow as in the sewing /making stuff category.
I am still stitching on the red work baskets.
Busy with other things though.
Put the Skinny Hanger up on front door for Memorial Day.
Will be good through July 4th as well. ;-)
Will get all the flags out to do porch soon too.
Pantry shelves were getting low on staples.
Freezer needed some extra meats/ fish too.
So worked( it is a job) at coupons with sales to TRY to save as much
as we could on that endeavor.
Seems the companies are downsizing packages/jars/cans
but the stores are upping thier prices!
So we pay more for less now..RANT!! Sorry.
I still have some of my own put ups from last year.
So some things I will not have to can or freeze this year.
Went out last Sat for some yard sales.
We got some goodies.
Like these crystal glasses for 3 bucks.
A few other things .
Was a fun day with my niece.
Oh the dishes came from an antique store in Smithfield, Va.
Lovely old ones with dark pink/red castles on them.
Not a whole set but I love them!!
Will use them with some creamy white ones.
We have harvested some lettuce and radishes from garden.
Had a nice salad for our supper last evening.
Strawberry Time is here for us. YUM!
We will buy some for jam and freezing at a local farm.
My potted ones are just about ready for me to pick for a snack!
This is a rose bush cutting rooted by Aunt Dot from her Mama's old rose bush!
Have to find a place to put it.
It is a very old variety. Gets big and smells heavenly.
A very soft pinkish cream color rose.
Well that is an update for the moment.
I hope to post again before Mother's Day but if not...
I wish all of you wonderful Mama's and Grand Mama's
A HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!
