To Beat The Heat
After finishing lunch in the gazebo today the owner of the homestead took us on a little road trip today. We rode in a vehicle with A/C. This was so great. The temp was in the 100's today. I had mentioned seeing some things I would like to have at a place he took us to the other weekend. I did not have my pocketbook that day. So off we went. Every thing was still there today. The old double bladed chopper was discounted 25% off today. This is the largest gray granite dish pan I have ever seen. It even already had a hole in the rim. The wooden masher was another piece I have been wanting. One of the boys found it and when I seen the price I had to have it.
I have been wanting something to hang in this spot for so long. The wash pan fits just perfect. I love my gray granite. You can see some of my house collection on the shelf. They are Cats Meow houses. I started collecting them during the late 80s. At one time I was going to sale them. When I seen how much they were selling for on ebay I changed my mind fast. Instead I purchased more of them on ebay. They were listed really cheap. I had the windows trimmed and shelves built into the trim just for my houses. I had a comment on the houses from an earlier post so I thought I would add this little story.
I hung the masher from the peg rail in the hall. I am still crossing my fingers to have those doors covered like the kitchen closet door.
So here is a photo of the area in the LVR I would like to put a peg rail and or blanket crane. Gina(Cat Nap Inn Primitives) I really like yours and Carol(Firecrackerkid Primitives) you know how much I love your wood pieces. Thank you both for your helpful comments on this idea. Really you two and Mary (Gettysburg Homestead) are the ones who got the wheels turning in my mind on this project. Still trying to decide. What do all of you followers think?
My nasturims are starting to bloom. They have such a bright beautiful color. I planted some sunflower seeds last Sunday and seen today they have already sprouted and are at least 2" high. Planted them where the pea vines were.
Here is the hibiscus in full bloom this week. I just love to look at these beauties. They just say happy to my heart. I think that about sunflowers too.
Here is one of the hibiscus blooms up close. The humming birds sure are liking these flowers.
My daughter applied for a job last week. She would just love this job. She volunteered in the past but would get paid if she gets the job. They will be calling Monday to set up an interview. Please say a little prayer she gets the job. I guess that is about all I have to share for now. I wish you all a restful Sunday.
Blessings til next time
