Finds and Favorites

White Spray Paint


There is nothing I enjoy more than trailing behind my girls at a flea market or thrift store or at Warrenton or

Round Top.

It is one of life’s great pleasures.

I get to watch them treasure hunt, and I get to see glimpses of my mother’s love of treasure hunting in them .

One year in Warrenton, as we were leaving Bar W Field, I spotted this garden statue sitting outside a tent.

I shouted “Stop!”, the daughter that was driving slammed Hauler 2 (my Tahoe) into park, and I hopped out.

The deal was done in about 10 minutes.


Of Life and Laundry

Who has ever discovered that weeks of living have passed, and we still haven’t written that blog post?

You must read Lucy’s post Of Laundry and Life Left Too Long  at her blog Heart and Home. It is spot on.

Sculpture Before

And then there is Leslie of Gwen Moss blog. You will certainly enjoy her before and after process in creating a

classic stone sculpture , but you are going to find that and more. Leslie is a wonderful writer .

Full Plate Thursday

And finally , you must see the recipe entries for Miz Helen’s Full Plate Thursday this week, where ‘the greatest

cooks on the planet gather’. Imagine 140 home cooks sharing their talent.  As I read through many of the

recipes, it reminded me of family reunion cooking. Is there anything better?

Have a great weekend!

Hi Laura, Thanks so much, you are very kind...I smiled at the "Stop!"
Been there, done that:) Wishing you a beautiful weekend.

Love your garden statue. I hope to add a few more to our backyard this year. And yes, Leslie is darling. I always walk away with something after reading her posts.

You know---it's only a few weeks until you and the girls could come experience "life's great pleasures"! I would love to see your beautiful face walking inside the door to Zapp Hall!
