Crab Apple Tree clothesline

This tree helps me out now and again.  I don't  have a clothes-line....so....I hang skirts on the tree and they dry in a jiffy.  and...they look so pretty blowing in the breeze. Maybe this is a new take on 'hang to dry'. =)

I am starting to crochet...(which I haven't done in years!)  I had kept an old Workbasket magazine with a 'walnut' stitch afghan in it that appealed to me.  After getting the hang of the stitch, I am ready to start.  I couldn't really afford the softer yarn I wanted, but ....I did get the right colors.  Heres hoping I'll stick with this  project....I need to  focus on crocheting again....I've not been doing anything but reading good books which I love to do.  You Tube has a wealth of how-to's which I think are so wonderful...and a huge help.

Sweet Paul...

If you ever come across a copy of this magazine...it is fabulous!  I found this copy at the Good Will store for 25 cents. It is chock full of  yummy recipes and very cool craft ideas.  I think Amazon has some of his magazines....maybe you could get a peek inside one or two.  I was thrilled with the ones I got.  'Sweet Paul'  Paul Lowe who has the online magazine with a printed one quarterly. Super special!

Strawberry Plate Day....

 I had recently commented that I just couldn't grow roses like this....and this potted rose burst forth in all its gorgeous glory, with a wonderful fragrance! How I am enjoying it. Four blooms so far and holding.....my breath. Could this be brought inside for the winter?

 Celebrating my dear friend's Birthday.  We always get together for a tea party on her Birthday and mine, oh what fun we had!!


Is there ever any more beautiful dishes than 'Johnston Brothers of England' make!  This strawberry design is to the moon.

A pretty apron!

 Isn't this a pretty thing?  This apron is reversible and has been made by a 83 year old lady recently.  My husband insists they said she was 93 years old. I don't have a good memory but whichever age she is....this is stellar!  I loved it.

I wanted you to see this clever pocket. Quite large and the way it is sewn....is like a pocket on top of a pocket. Or...2 pockets in one pocket.  The reverse side has two pockets also.  I think it is just  so nice.

What did you say?

What do you mean, get out of the suitcase?  I'm so comfy. The grand-boys don't mind cat hair.
Don't you need to go name miss bunny?  I thought so, see you later mum. xoxo, Violet.

A pretty little face...

 Miss Bunny comes to live with me.  Isn't she cute?  I think so and she only cost a quarter!  Woo hoo.

Summer, at home...

A favorite summer lily.  Maybe done blooming now...not sure.  My husband has been the gardener, and done a great job.  In spite of the  heat.  Our daughter and grandsons are coming...oh happy day! Can't wait to visit with them. =)
