In The Garden and Finds

 This past week has been weird around my place I have not had time to hit any stores though I saw a new store I can't wait to check out but won't be able to do so till next Friday.  Hopefully I will be able to tell you about it on my next post.  On Saturday I had most of my family over for dinner it was a good time which always makes all the work involved worth it.

I'm only sharing one of my new paperweights today.  This one is by Selkirk made in Scotland it's a limited edition 229/450.

I took a walk around the yard this week and snapped  the pictures of my flowers above. 

My husband and I both liked the covered stoneware dish above we can't make out the makers name but it was made in Japan.  A friend of mine believes the vase the flowers are in is End Of The Day Glass the vase I inherited from my husbands mother once we got together.

I found the large amber jar a couple of weeks ago and I went downstairs and dug the smaller one out of a box I had it stored in I found the smaller one quite awhile back.

These mugs look like Fire King but have no marks I haven't had time to figure out who the maker is yet.
I like the colors and the design on them so when I saw them I knew they needed to come home with me.

You may be wondering why I have a picture of the Good Year blimp in this post but it's because on Friday August 07th to the 9th 2015 was the Abbotsford Airshow.  I have watched planes fly over the different homes I've lived in for decades but have never attended the airshow I would like to but I don't like crowds much and it's very crowded plus I burn so easy so I have not attempted it.  My dad's cousin took this picture as you can see it had quite a audience as it hovered over a farmers field there's another picture that shows cars way down the road stopped.
