Mom's camellia bush

Mom's camellia bush is just covered with flowers this year..sooo pretty!

Yard sale finds

Tom took me to 2 or 3 yards sales today, I bought three boxes of cross stitch thread for $2.00. All neatly organized and labelled...included 2 new packs of needles too! As I was leaving the lady said they had been her mother's and it was hard for her to let them go...I told her I would take good care of them and put them to good use.

Oh how the leaves are falling...

Lots of maple leaves falling and covering the back patio. The fence is getting pretty old..I guess you could say it is just getting more character..

New dishes

I think these are so cute. I first bought one cup and two trays, then Homegoods starting putting the rest on clearance and I bought things two more times. I need someplace to display them though....they are Kate Williams design..

Special things

Grandma Briggs crocheted this doily. The old jars were found in Granny's house. I put cloth toppers on them and store yarn and threads in them. The old fan was a painting done by Adelaide Hiebel. There is interesting info on her on the internet.
