Happy Saturday…

Brenda and I got up early today to go to a church bazaar and boy was it a great bunch of crafts and goodies. It is so much fun seeing what people are making and doing. Usually craft shows I’m selling but this time we got to be customers. I just picked up a couple small things because most of the stuff I could make if I wanted too but also because really I didn’t need anything and I didn’t find that perfect something for someone for Christmas. But it is so much fun looking. Then we went to a church garage sale and of course I found a couple things I just had to have there. I found this …

Isn’t it the coolest looking bowl? It’s huge, about 9x18” and I love it. It doesn’t have any markings on it at all so can’t tell who or where it was made but it’s just perfect for a catch all bowl on my new cabinet in the kitchen.

Then I also got this…

I have seen so many cute ideas made from these and the one I’m interested is a lamp. It’s fly fishing tackle box but a small one so think It'll make the neatest lamp or ???

And these…and I haven’t a clue what I’m going to do with them. I am going to try and cut one in half and see what they are made out of and also I think they’d make cute lady bugs but first will see. I think it’s a plaster of some kind but not sure. I love the marble detail in them too.

Brenda and I finished our morning out with a hike on our walking trails. I could only handle about 15 minutes and went .85miles but still got out there and enjoyed.

Yesterday Mike helped me with the wood. It’s just about all put up. Joss wanted to help a bit too so we let her carry some bark.

And Mike and I took a ride around the pits and he gets so proud that his truck is filthy dirty.

So there’s my Saturday plus. I hope that you’re having a great weekend. Jim is on his way home from work and going to take me out for a quick lunch and then this afternoon I’m taking a nap. I want to rest, relax and enjoy some this weekend, and I’m off to a good start so far. Take care my friends and have a blessed day!!

That is a very nice basket--simple but pretty.

You have no idea how much I'd love to go on a walk with you. Though I'd probably slow you down,w ith my wonky knees. Still, looks brisk and beautiful in your parts. AHAH, there's cutie-Mike!!! Say hi from us old ladies who love his smile. :D

Later, hugs...
