Sunflowers and Selfies

Lunch date with college friends

While At Carriage House I looked for a gift.

Hopefully my friend can find the right photo and keepsake for this memorabilia frame.
I selected it as an anniversary gift.

Roadside beauties I photographed on my way home from Jackson.

Mary and Sam shared a part of their special day with us. We had time over lunch to remember some high school memories and their wedding day.

In 1967 I wrote the following words into my journal.

I regret that I didn't take pictures of Mary and Sam on their 50th anniversary. I should have insisted.
I hope they made a few photos later in the day. I also hope they know how much I admire them. 

None of us are crazy about taking pictures now that we have aged.
But here's mine after about ten tries to get one that didn't look too horrible.

 This little thing turned up in one of the bargain bins at Goodwill.

 Bookcase holds much more than books.

After many months out at the booth 
I decided to bring this sweet pitcher home.

 A whimsical rock gift from a friend greets me 
by the door entrance and makes me smile.

Home is where the heart is 
and where lots of personal stuff ends up.

Pennee's writing of the word home is lovely.
She gave me this large sign when they moved 
into their Dallas apartment. Not sure where to use it.
I did use her other sign above kitchen cabinets in Mother's former apartment.
May place it over our mantel closer to Thanksgiving.

 I did this stitched picture and saying years ago.
Some home stuff is meaningful and hard to part with...maybe 
it will stay around for a few more  years.

Fun Finds

The first three were very inexpensive.

doorstop brass rabbit

brass snail for windowsill collection

bird and nest candleholder

This very old print appealed to me, especially the wooden opening for the quote. For now I've leaned it against books on the bookcase.

While I had the brass polish out cleaning the snail, I decided to work on the heart trivet I've had for many years. The hearts represent Jo, Jason, Ryan, Lester, and Lauren.

Hope you are having a wonderful Fourth of July. Our house is quiet since Les and his family have returned home. But we thoroughly enjoyed our time together on Saturday and Sunday. Kiera and Chloe were a joy to watch.
