Taken during the rain last night. Mom and her baby hung around for quite a while watching us watching them! I did notice that hmmm all my rudbeckia buds are gone but how can you deny something so beautiful a treat!
So yesterday Gord and I went junkin’ with Bill and Diane – ohhhh we had fun. And we got some good stuff. Stopped at the Crosby market and got books and sopping wet feet because the field in which the market is held was 3 inches under water! Diane got a little faux fishing creel that she is going to punch needle a fish for and then hang on the wall to hold all her punch needle patterns. Then off to the expensive antique store – lovely stuff but beyond my pensioner budget! Then Millers in Rideau Ferry – yeahhhhh we hit paydirt. I had been looking for an old rusty metal wheel to plant herbs in but we found one that we can ALSO put our umbrella in as our base rusted away – so it will serve 2 purposes! Here is a picture I found on pinterest that gave me the idea:
Then I found (or rather Gord found) a wonderful little really different footstool that I will try to reupholster with a hooked piece. It is probably a Victorian piece – not my usual grungy old primitive style butttt it was so different and really is so very comfortable that hmmm had to have it!
Diane and Bill also got a wheel, 2 wonderful primitive benches(guess Gord was not looking hard enough!) and a beautiful old window with cream paint on one side and old red on the other and original green glass panes all the way around one clear one (would be wonderful with a mosaic in the center and hung outside).
So today dock time and hooking!!!! Good rainfall yesterday cleared away some of the humidity so I think it will be a wonderful day – hope you all have as much fun as I do!!!! and HAPPY CANADA DAY WEEKEND and FOURTH OF JULY.
