I found this lovely dish just before my birthday. Seems too nice for snacks, maybe I can get Roboboy to help me colour sort my buttons into different sections.
Once I get him off here perhaps.
It has been really hot, wet and muggy here for what seems like weeks. We are cooling off with trampoline hose downs in between bursts of weeding, pruning and mowing.
I managed to weed out this whole bed and thus justify popping in some new flowers. Some dahlias and salvias and verbenas, a dash of colour next to my glorious Double Delight rose.
Legoman has a new toy. Extremely long long pruning thing-a-me-what-sit. We have a LOT of tall trees that have needed taking care of so the yard is now littered with prunings. It has also given him a reason to be up prowling on Betsy's roof, trimming overhead branches while pondering the complexities of several different roof lines. We need a new deck with a roof and working out how to link it in is proving tricky.
I might just sit and ponder that Salvos special I was telling you about. You know, the birthday present my boys brought home in the trailer. Well it's all clean now, just waiting to be stocked up with vintage sheets and pyrex. I'm not sure about the colour but look at those curved ends, glass doors and lovely original grey laminate bench.
I am still in shock that it was not only in my local oppie, but also it was a red spot special - 25% off! I'm contemplating a new colour, and maybe some wallpaper features behind the glass doors. So many projects, so little free time......
