Just Beautiful.




My False Indigo plants have bloomed, and WOW! I have giant spikes of blue flowers all over my yard. They are one of my favorite perennials. They even last well as a cut flower. I just thought I would share this with you.

Vintage Patterns!!!





I found a huge treasure trove of wonderful vintage patterns this weekend. They range in date from the late 60s all the way thru the 80s. It's going to take me a long time to get them all listed, but I did list 4 of them today and hope to do the same everyday till they are all up. It should take at least a month! I have so many of them! They are making me want to dig out my sewing machine and make a few. The styles are very wearable with todays style.

I love old cookbooks!




Look at these wonderful cookbooks!!! I learned to cook by using a Campbells soup cookbook. They are very instructional and have tasty recipes. This book is from 1976. I also found these fund raiser cookbooks from the First Methodist Church, in Fort Madison, Iowa in 1961. This is a super cool book. It has everything in it! Of course it has recipes but it also has a health section, a gardening section and many others that you don't normally see in a cookbook. I really enjoyed reading it.

My poor flowers!

All of my flowers were blown off the tree I was so impressed with! But I guess thats the way it goes! The ground under the tree sure was purdy. Pink everywhere!

Crabapple




I just had to post my tree. It's soo beautiful.

I have a new nephew!!!







I have a wonderful new little nephew! Leeland, 9lbs 14oz, big little boy. I'm going to see him later, and hope to get a picture up later. Yea, I'm happy.






OK. I saw him. He's sooo cute and squishable! Mommy and daddy look so happy, and a little unsure of what just happened. :)

WoW! I love this!


I have found the coolest vintage glasses and then I found this tray. They go so well together I put them together in a set. I love it! I would so like to keep these, but I guess I can't keep everything. The glasses are vintage Libbey with California destinations on them and the tray is a vintage souvenir from Oakland California.
