Finds. Some Fun, Some Not So Fun
Of course, being the proud grandmother that I am I must brag about their sweetness of sharing everything with me. Isn't it darling? One hears of so many children these days who do not share, or even take turns. So rest assured, dear reader, that MY grandchildren do it often, and do it well.
Anyway, so while I was sick and recovering I read more Jane Austen. I also watched Sense and Sensibility.
And, I noticed a few things around me that needed to be photographed.
See the three new canisters on the bottom shelf of this cabinet?
Presently I have the sweet scene of the child rocking a baby showing.
But, someday I may want to look at the back of two Dutch men, and all I shall have to do is turn it around to do that.
That is a "win/win" in my book.
I think it works well here.
If you don't, don't tell me, as I like to maintain my illusions.
The flowers were also a Michael's find, but alas, only 30% off. There are times, and causes, for which I will splurge.
In other news, THGGM is painting our awnings. I don't like it. He loves it. I was not consulted about the color. It's a GOOD color, actually my FAVORITE color, but not for awning stripes.
I add this only to show you that my life is not perfect. I have to put up with a stubborn Dutch guy who thinks he can make important decisions about things like the color of the awning stripes on his own.
But mostly, I am upset about our magnolia tree. It only has about a dozen blooms on it this year. I believe this means it is dead, or nearly dead, and this saddens me. Then last night I found a dead little bunny in our backyard.
I love Spring, but like everything else, it has it's downsides.
