Hello!!!! For all of you who may have wondered, no....I didn't fall off the edge of the earth. I am still around and trying to get some organization back to my schedule since summer is almost over and the kids are all back in school. Seems when I had things to write about, I didn't have time, and when I had the time, things were rather boring. So, anyway, I'm back. Thanks to all those who have stuck with me.
We had a terribly, and I mean terribly dry summer. Crops looked horrible, grass was dying, flowers were just existing with the constant watering I did every night. Here is my poor garden. I had such high hopes for it early on. It still fared better than years past so it was a successful project. I thought I took a picture when the sunflowers were blooming, but I guess not. Better luck next year with it!!
Just a few of the Black-eyed Susans I have out by the old smokehouse.
I started these dipper gourd plants indoors and transplanted them. I didn't think they would all live but they did. I have quite a few growing. They don't seem to have as long a "handle" as the picture on the package shows, but they will be great to have.
The US 127 garage sale happened again this year. Here are the goodies I was able to pick up. We didn't go far at all because it was so hot!! I'm not the die-hard garage saler I would like to think I am. My favorite piece is the old lantern. It was only $3!! I have been looking for one for quite a while.
Here it is all cleaned up. I put a battery operated timer candle in it. It makes such a neat accent on our front porch!
I found a few new molds for my blackened beeswax. These are large ears of corn wrapped in husks.
And here is the smaller version. All of the bowl fillers and ornies I make are hand poured with highly scented cinnamon blackened beeswax and rubbed with spices. My items can be found in my Etsy store. Please take a moment to go check it out!!
I guess that is all for today. I am hoping to get my fall decorations out in the next few days. I will be back to show you my displays. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
