I received a very special package in the mail Friday and it brought a huge smile to my face…it came from Sara over at Salmon Falls Prims http://salmonfallsprims.blogspot.com/
I won her Independence Day Giveaway!!! I never dreamed the board would be as big as it was – goodness Sara does beautiful work. I am so happy and proud to own one of her creations.
It has a place on my family room wall cabinet
along with the jar of American Flags.
THANK YOU SARA…
Last weekend I worked outside as much as I could while feeling relief from my injection in my hip – I know I should not do that but when I feel GOOD I take advantage of it and pay the price later…which is happening this week!
But tomorrow I get 2 more injections so it should keep me going for about a month – can’t ask for for I guess.
Last night we had our first sweet corn of the season and it was fantastic. It came from the south I’m sure as the corn here is only a few inches high – I don’t think we’ve had that good tasting corn even when ours has been in season.
Tiny light golden color and it snapped when you bit into it!!
Been busy working on an order for the gentleman that is making our two chairs – he asked if I would like to make a even up $$ trade – my merchandise for his shop for one of the chairs…heck yes!!!! I think it’s a win/win for both of us. We pick them up the end of July in MN.
I have been asking Doug to make me something to hold my DMC cones for my stitching and he hasn’t gotten around to it yet so yesterday we stopped at the thrift store and I found 3 of these things – I think they held coasters at one time. I got all three for .69 cents and they work perfect – don’t think we could have made anything to work as nice.
I can just take the thread and pull and it spins on the rod!!!
Went to a rummage sale and found this Pewter creamer and sugar for .25 cents. Couldn’t leave them…not for that price.
Also found this large framed picture for $3.00…John Trumbull’s print of ‘British Surrender at Yorktown, Oct. 19, 1781. I’m going to have to reframe it as it’s loose in the frame. It’s quite a large size print (20 x 26) so not sure where it will go, maybe in the family room.
Picked my first Rhubarb and it was very disappointing – very thin stalks.
Not a good year for it so I didn’t yield much at all and probably won’t get another picking from it….but what I did get was enough to make my yearly Rhubarb Cake.
Hopefully later today I can get the recipe on my ‘Favorite Recipes’ tab on my left sidebar.
Saturday we went to Janesville to my nephew’s house for their daughter’s graduation party – didn’t get any pictures of the graduate as she was flitting about with her friends and never in one spot!
So here’s a few of my family – I know – way too many pictures of them, but I sure do love them all. Alexandra wasn’t there because there was a baby shower on the other side of the family (Dan and Jamie were leaving this party early to go to it). And Brett/Heather and kids arrived just as we were leaving – but we at least got to see them all.
I will close now by asking for PRAYERS for one of our blog friends.
Margie of Hungry Hook Primitives: http://hungryhookprimitives.blogspot.com/
She’s struggling so hard with pain and has been for several years.
She doesn’t say anything on her blog about it but I’ve been e-mailing with her and as of late it is getting the best of her. My heart is hurting for her right now.
So if you can add her to your prayers it would be so much appreciated.
Blessings to all and thank you for all your wonderful comments and for all my followers.
