We waited impatiently for the first ripe tomatoes and once they started ripening we had a hard time keeping up. Last evening I went out and gathered these thinking that was all there was. Seems I missed a few because my DH went out today and filled a small pail.
I am trying very hard not to bring home too many treasures these days so I only have three to share today. The first is a pretty cup and saucer. It has the words "Phoenix bone china, made in England" written on the bottom.
The other two things I bought are on either end of this drop-leaf table in the sunroom. The wooden box on the left has a divider in the middle. I wonder what it was meant for. The tin thing on the right has that extra piece sewn on with fine wire. I really like it. The cast iron basket in the middle has some nuts and a pine cone that I still had from last year. I wish I'd have kept the shiny brown Horse Chestnuts but I thought I would gather more this year so why keep them. Seems this is a bad year for Chestnuts because the tree that I looked at had none. Maybe it was too dry??
A few Fallish photos complete my "vignette". That's all the decorating I'm doing just yet.
Our stretch of very hot days seem to have ended and I'm relieved. I'm looking forward to a week of cool temperatures and renewed energy!
Thanks for dropping by,
