Sorry for the delay in the last post for April but life had gotten in the way. As you can see via this post I've been everywhere & with my camera too!
This morning's bouquet picking, from Nicholas's garden.
Tommy has always been an outdoor cat so be it. Rexton has been great at not running out when the doors are opening & closing.
I once had a Dalmatian named Nichele that would bolt out the door, at every opportunity & oh my what a job to get her back.
I had the opportunity to purchase my girlfriend Cynthia's mother's downsizing of Ruby red, thumbprint king crown crystal!
A Visit With Liz.
Thank you for the lovely day Liz & thank you Bob for making us our lunch! :-P
Sandy & I went to Woodstock to tour the One Of A Kind shoppe...all 4 floors!
I found a Bunnykins bowl, one that had firemen & a fire truck in it. I'd been collecting these for decades & had not seen this scene before. I thought it would be perfect to put away for Mitchell as he is now a volunteering fireman & enjoys driving the firetruck.
But as we were touring on another floor I found another bowl! This one was a rare find as it had Barbara Vernon's name on it! She was the original artist, a nun that created & loved to draw for her father, he worked for Royal Doulton.
It is a very interesting read as she could only do this by candle light at the end of her day & the convent would not take a dime from the royalties on the drawings on these dishes that went on for decades! Google Barbara Vernon for the history.
This is a the signature to watch for, she stopped her drawings in the 50's.
Vintage Tin Finds!
This on was made in Canada. :)
The top row is of oil cans & this was one of the finishes pieces I left at the cottage but I now have those cans to add to the enhancement of it!
So many more pieces & blocks to sew to complete it...
Spring is here!~~~~~
Well that was one of the longest blogs I've done in a long time! Sorry my my tardiness but I'm in transition of homes again. Once I'm settled, the routine will fall in place too!
Smiles are infectious, spread them!
