Well we are finally getting a fair bit of rain here in the Fraser Valley in British Columbia and believe me I`m not complaining. It`s nice not to have to water everything. This past week I`ve been tired but I`ve just gone from one shift at work to a totally different one so I`m guessing it has something to do with it. I managed to hit a couple of second hand stores yesterday but didn`t find that many items.
I took the picture of the church above a few years back it`s located a few miles down the road from the house I grew up in. It kind of fit my mood today so I thought I would put it in this post.
A Walk In The Rain Around The Yard
Yesterday I took a walk around the yard and snapped these pictures of things growing there.
This mug is Watcombe Devon Motto Ware England.
My grandparents had a plate in this pattern on the wall in their cabin.
The mug reminds me in a way of something Clarice Cliff would have done and since finding pieces by her are hard to come by here in British Columbia I thought I would get it when I saw it even if it isn`t by her.
I recently came by these books by Mark Twain at the same time in my favorite second hand store I wonder if it was someone`s collection or just ended up there at the same time by chance.
I of course know the story of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn but have never heard of Tom Sawyer Abroad.
The last book with a picture of Mark Twain is ``A Treasury Of Mark Twain The Greatest Humor of the Greatest American Humorist.
These Allies are part of my glass collection it`s always nice to find them in bags of marbles I pick up at the second hand stores.
