This and That


A bit of everything in today's post, starting with some jars of Apricot/Peach jam made with marked down produce ( very ripe and needing to be used that day).



         I cannot resist bringing home pretty Autumn leaves that I pick up while on my walk.


                    This little bistro set got a new coat of paint ( thanks to my DH).


I bought this cute clock at a garage sale this morning. Good thing I wanted it for the cuteness of it because I don't think it works.  Looks fine in my garden shed.


Also bought these animals which I think are "primitive" which is not really my thing but they were .25 each and again, suit my garden shed.


These are the porcelain drawer handles that I just happened to have 3 of and finally got to put to use.  I'm sure I've had them for 4 years.

My effort to put this magazine page into a frame resulted in wrinkles but I hung it up anyway, with some dried lavender.


Lastly a pic of my Dahlias, still doing well in spite of the awful heat. Must put in more next year seeing as the weather trend seems to be dry hot summers for us.


Thanks for visiting.  Love to read your comments.

  1. I bet I know which GS you got the 25 cent animals from! Cute! We were planning on going out to some this morning. I got weeding in the veggie garden, it is in the shade until about 9, so we didn't get an early start. We just went to a couple of G Sales close to home. I'm happy though, I bought a big four wheeled garden cart for $30. Good for hauling flower buckets back and forth from the other garden.

  2. Your dahlias are still looking terrific. Mine seem to have given up in this heat. Enjoy!

  3. Your jam looks delicious. I admire how you seem to whip it up with such ease.
    I love the red bistro set. A great color choice for the garden.
    The dahlias are amazing. I will always remember the gorgeous ones we saw at the Butchart Gardens. They must be well suited to your area.

  7. You use the same jars as me! Oh and apricot and peach jam, how lovely.

    Your dahlias are looking gorgeous. I have seen a few hints of Autumn on my walks as well...the odd conker has started falling and a few leaves.

  11. I found all my "Bonne Maman" jam jars at the thrift store except for one and that one came from Karen ( Wyndson Farm blog).
    I hope you find lots more treasures today!!
