Pie Day

The berries are on.  I passed these beauties on my walk today so I grabbed the pick-up and parked beside this bush and filled up a big bowl in no time.

Self and the berries.

Beautiful, fresh, fruit.

It's nice having a daughter around that loves to bake!!
Thanks, Morgan

Hardware Bins

This hardware bin (or cubby, as I call it)  is one of my very favorite items.  I found it in an antique store in Hood River on my way to the antique show one year.  I was in my car so I had to make a trip back a few days later to pick it up.  I love it.  I had it in my kitchen in our other house.  It looked really cute loaded with vintage kitchen items.  It then went into storage for two years.  I missed it a lot.  I was hoping it would fit in the layout of our new home and it did.  It now has a perfect spot in our home.

Can you imagine the excitement when I went to an estate sale this morning at a plumbing business that had been around for 50 years.  That guy had bins on every wall in every room.  I bought a couple of them.  Dad got some for his shop.  A friend was there putting her name on some.  They were priced to move out fast.

Here's one of them.  It was a steal at $15.

Now where will we put them.  As much as I would love to have another in the house there is just no room.  I don't even think I could fit one in the Shabby Shack.  The bigger one of the two will go in Gareld's shop.  They were just too good to pass up.  Right place at the right time.  I love it when that happens.  We were in such a hurry to get on the road to Kennewick or I may have gotten carried away and bought more.

Thursday, August 2, 2012 playhouse porch.

So we really should be working on porches for the house but look what we are doing instead.
Brace it up.
I helped by measuring.
Today I painted it.
We put up a fence to keep the critters out....especially cats and skunks.
It's looking pretty awesome.
Tomorrow we will add rocks to the ends and put in the steps and it will be finished.  I always wanted a covered porch!
