Chances are...

 We are always thinking about something different to offer on our website...

We have the cutter, fondly named "The Doohickey Machine",
for cutting stencils and vinyl for our signs. 
There are many uses for vinyl words and lettering and
we are now working on some new products for the website.

 Chances are Coffee Mugs and several other mug designs are now available.
Lettering is high quality exterior vinyl
We recommend only hand washing with
a mild dish soap and air dry
We'll be adding more mugs and glassware soon.
Custom designs available.

Sunday Breakfast...

 The last of the blueberries picked and shared by the
grand littles earlier this week.

 Made blueberry pancakes on the old griddle that my Dad
used to cook pancakes for my brother, sister and me
when we were children.

A wonderful breakfast on the porch.

Wishing all a lovely Sunday...

Queen Anne's Lace

Queen Anne's Lace...
The legend is Queen Anne, the wife of King James I, was challenged by friends to create lace as beautiful as a flower. While making the lace, she pricked her finger, and it’s said that the burgundy-red flower in the center of Queen Anne’s Lace represents a drop of her blood. Also called Wild Carrot, since Queen Anne’s Lace is the wild progenitor of today’s carrot, Bishop’s Lace or Bird’s Nest, for the nest like appearance of the bright white and round flower in full bloom.  In the language of flowers, Queen Anne’s Lace represents sanctuary.

 I can't seem to attract these tiny beauties with a feeder but it seems
I must have the right flowers because they have
been visiting regularly this week

At the Hot Lips Sage...

 and the Turk's-Cap Lilies.

I am thrilled they find my garden so inviting.

Berry Pickin'

 Received a call on Saturday morning asking if I would like to join the daughters and grandlittles to pick berries at a local berry farm.  


 It's the end of blueberry season and the raspberries and blackberries
were just starting to ripen and any ripe berries were picked
much earlier than when we arrived at the farm that morning.

 We were able to gather enough blueberries
to come back to our house and make a nice large batch
of blueberry pancakes
for the hungry, berry picking crew.
