Cottonwoods, always remind me of a trip I took to Colorado when I was 19. We slept under the stars along the Colorado River under the protection of giant cottonwoods just like this beauty.
A couple of events this weekend to check out for local girls.
A Flea Market Style Barn Sale
at Heritage Barn and Board
W2644 Loveland Rd. Elkhorn, WI
We loved their Christmas Sale.
Nellie's Barn Sale
10856 Branding Iron Ln. Roscoe, IL
Never been but looks like cool vintage stuff.
Saw this ad on Facebook...
5000 sq ft of fun!
2450 County Road O
Delevan WI 53115
We will remember this place when we go up to see Northwinds Perennial again.
We have no plans for the weekend except spending some time in the garden, there may be local a rummage sale... With gas $4 a gallon and up...there are no bargains when you spend a bundle to fill the gas tank, as much as we love a road trip. Oh, and a picnic dinner with a man who got soaked with me last weekend, that is if the weather cooperates!
Have a great weekend my friends.

Comfy House on Friday. We always have a great time together, and our thrifting mojo seems to flow when we're together. I found this awesome straw boater hat.
when he is an animatronic in the tunnel of love. Creepy and funny. Anyhow at $4 I had to have it.
On a personal note our dear friends Jean and Tom delivered some gifts to my hubby for some help he gave them with their computer. These two...what can I even say... are the kindest, most generous and craziest.
When I say that we are blessed, it is no joke. Thanks to Jean and Tom...your friendship means the world to us!
Sunday we went to the little flea market with Brother Greg, SIL Elizabeth and my two little nieces. We got a late start and it was really hot. The kids wilted first with my sweetheart not far behind. We let Grandma and Grandpa shop while we cooled off in the car and listened to a scary story told by my little bird. It involved a girl and a boy a jacket and a grave... She explained that the girl was a GHOST! We sang some songs and Grandma came back to the car, without Grandpa. (He left the house without his phone, go figure...) I went to find my dear brother, it only took a minute since he was heading to the car to find us. I told the girls I found Grandpa in the room with the lost children. I said he was crying and then jumped into my arms when he saw me. The little bird, now almost 6 believed me for a nano second, and then asked her grandpa..."Were you really in the room for lost children?" A great time was had by all, especially eating snacks and drinks in the cool of Auntie Penny's house.
I need a rest from my weekend!
Another rainy day...thank goodness, I need the rest!
Enjoy this beautiful day.

I'm sure you've seen all the mason jar accessories in the craft stores and the Wally Mart. Three lids with a hole for a straw for about $10, straws extra! I didn't have anything big enough to punch a hole in the dozens of lids I already had. Then we went to a Harbor Freight tool type store. I couldn't purchase just the tool of the size I wanted, but the set was reasonably priced. So today I set out to manufacture some lids for my recently purchased and so vintage canning jars.
Back to my crafting with a hammer...;-)
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy this beautiful day!

Working on getting things set right again on the deck and in the yard. Gazing at the roof is my latest pass time. Makes my sweetheart laugh. Maybe I'm just doing it to hear that laugh...
Take care my friends, thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.
