Misc. Saturday

 Well I hope these girls are not too mad at me.  Here it is the end of September and I didn't post their picture.  Next month will be a guy, so get ready ladies.
Lisa and Ray just came back from vacation, they went to Colorado, Utah and Nevada and came back with so many beautiful pictures.  We all know how beautiful those Western states are, so I chose this picture to post because Lisa knew I would appreciate it and it makes you think. And laugh.
This is a book I just read picked out for me by Teresa at the library.  It's a good book and I enjoyed reading it through but the end is the best part.  Do not read the end before you start it.  I hope everyone has a good weekend, it is a gorgeous day in Michigan.

Visit to Kynda and Mark's Porch...

 It was too cold for me on the porch when we visited and I was disappointed to miss out on it.
 Little table has a story, Kynda bought it at Antique Mall then found out it had belonged to a friend's Mom.
(She offered it back of course).
 Wire frame, made in Michigan, made beautiful with flowers.  Why didn't we do that with ours?

 Mammy's little snail planter, sweet little face isn't it?

 Mammy's little birdhouse in a bird cage found by PJ.

Granddaddy's thermometer from White's Ashland Service Station.  We called it "filling station" back then.
It's like a trip down Memory Lane, and a perfect place for a visit or a read.

 These are most of the pumpkins that I grew in the garden.....
and this is one I tried to make.  I think it turned out like a big ol pattypan squash.  Okay it was a practice piece that I attempted from a tutorial on  Maybe you could try it, but anyway, check out the website and see what you think.
