Yes, August 17 is National Thrift Store Day. I think I should honour the day by paying a little visit to one of the nearby ones. It's only right. If I find anything I'll let you know.
It was another lovely cool morning for our walk. Can you see the turtle on that rock? And the up-ended duck?
One of the Canada geese ( the one on the left) is much smaller than the rest. It's definitely full grown but obviously didn't grow as big as the others. I should have gotten a better picture.
Thanks for all the lovely comments on my buttery and the stained glass window. That was a garage sale buy a number of years ago. I got it for a low price because the middle frosted glass has a large chunk missing. The glass bird isn't part of the window. It hangs from the ceiling on fishline.
Ellabie commented on how neat my pantry/buttery looks. That's because I asked my DH to make doors on the north wall where he had originally built open shelving. Which I couldn't keep neat. Now it's all hidden!!
And I mistakingly called my samplers needlepoint but they are counted cross stitch. Thanks Karen for pointing that out.
The morning was cool but the sun has very rapidly changed that and it's predicted to reach 33C ( 91F).
I've been outside deadheading and checking which plants absolutely need watering. I'll go out in the cool of the evening to water those.
I hope your Wednesday is going along nicely and you're taking time to sit and enjoy the day.
