Afternoon everyone! It's a gorgeous day on our little farm. The sun is shining, a nice warm breeze is blowing and it is suppose to get up to 20 degrees! hmmm, what have I been up to? Well, planting bulbs in my vintage tin sap buckets, planting flower seeds, running around like crazy! On the weekend I took Brynn to an auction for a few hours. We couldn't stay long as she had a birthday party to go to but I did walk out of there with a cut tin watering can and a wooden salt box. Of course when we had to leave, they were getting to the good stuff that I wanted to bid on :( There is another auction on Sunday but unfortunately I can't go as the Nickleback concert is that night and I think hubby would shoot me if I spent more money on the auction, lol. Tuesday's outing scored me an old cast iron ash bucket, an enamelware teapot and potatoe pot and a copper tub that I will use to put flowers in :) Yesterday I went for a haircut and came out with a totally different style! No more long hair, it's quite short and they put in hi lights at a discount! Even though I have said for years that I would never have my hair short again, I must say that I love my do and I feel like a brand new person! Tomorrow I am heading out to see a lady who is selling off all her prim decorations...she must have had a shop at one point, but she has everything set up in her garage for people to come an see. She is selling them less than wholesale so who knows what I will come home with :D I had better hide what ever I get and slowly put them out so nobody notices, lol. Our front porch is almost done! It's 32 feet by 10 feet and wraps around to the back door. My father in law has been coming over this week and at the age of 71 is still climbing the ladders and carrying up heavy particle board for the roof. He is here today put shingles on before it rains. I cannot wait til it's all finished so we can sit out it and enjoy the evenings :) Well, I was thinking of maybe grabbing a small nap but not sure with all the hammering. Hoping you are all having a fabulous day and I will post pics of my goodies soon!
take care, Trish
