Finds, The Garden And Father's Day Is Coming

I saw this poster at work on the wall and took a picture since it sums up pretty much how I feel.  Things have been crazy around my place and I'm slowing down in the getting things done category.  The husband's and my work schedule are about to get really crazy so getting things completed may take even longer.

I recently bought the vintage cat glasses and sunglasses and was in a bit of a crazy mood when I took the pictures which is the reason for the mixing of fabrics it just seemed the way to go.

The last couple of weekends have been spent in the garden I took a walk around the yard this morning and took these pictures of some of the plants.

It's been a long time since I've gone to a second hand store and on Saturday we stopped at my favorite store it was half price for all color tags.  I found the cute little tea strainer and the Pink gooseberry pattern Pyrex dish and was surprised to get it.  The paperweight my husband found at the flea market for me this morning.

The Husband Corner:

The postcard in the top picture is what my husband would like to be doing every day of the week.  The fly fishing tie is the tie he wore for our wedding.  He grudgingly agreed to track down a tie that met with my approval and wear it at the wedding.  He was quite happy when people kept commenting positively about his tie.  The two books are Hardy's guides his all time favorite fishing gear company.

Father's Day

Since I won't be posting again till the evening of Father's Day I wanted to wish all the fathers out there a Happy Father's Day.
My dad loved old cars the 1928 Ford Model AR was his first old collector car when he got it, it was a shell he didn't actually get to do the restoration work on it as he was having chemo treatments at the time the gentleman who did the work was kind enough to do it in my dad's garage so when he felt up to it my dad could be there.
His next car was the 1966 Chevy II Nova which my mom still owns.
I found the 76 antenna ball in my moms stuff so why not add it.
My dad's favorite song when I was young was Chantilly Lace by the Big Bopper I've added a link if you would like to listen to it.  The Big Bopper like my dad left this world way too early.

The above photographs are from my husband's family photo's and I picked them with Father's Day in mind.

Thanks for taking the time to drop by.
Have a great week.

Victoria Day And Some British Items

This year Victoria day falls on May 18th here in Canada which is to celebrate Queen Victoria's Birthday which is actually May 24th.  The picture above is a postcard of  British Columbia's Parliament building in Victoria on Vancouver Island.  The picture below is of a book I picked up a while back of the grand lady herself Queen Victoria.
I Have To Share This With You Before Carrying On With This Post:
My husband told me this past week one day just before we left for work that he had something to tell me that would make me really happy and want to give him lots of kisses.  I threw my arms around his neck gave him a big kiss and told him I would let them know I was quitting at work that day.  He said that wasn't a good idea.  I said well what do you have to rate such a reaction.  He said the shirt I was wearing was on inside out and I might want to fix it before leaving.  So I'm still slaving away at work.  Boy I liked my idea way better. 


The collage is of British themed items.
Top Row: Keep Calm sign, Garden theme books, a stamp with a Dalek from Doctor Who
Middle Row: Jug with Prince Phillip , Collage of British items, Jug with Queen Elizabeth 2nd 
Bottom Row: Tardis Piggy Bank and Doctor Who figurine, Bobbie hat bell, Cars from my collection

These postcards are of areas around England.

This is the first time I've posted the top Harrod's bag the bottom one has been posted before.

The Land Rover Defender is a British Vechile I've always liked, the ones in the pictures above are some I see around the Fraser Valley.  I like them all but the middle one is the one I would like to have parked in my driveway.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Have a wonderful week.

A Mother's Day Post

I was all set to do another theme for this post when my husband said that next Sunday was mother's day so everything came to a halt Saturday night and I started replanning my post for today.  Know the theme you got it I'm sure is set around mother's day.  I hope everyone has a wonderful and special day next Sunday and Happy Mother's Day.

This Sherman brooch was supposed to be a Christmas gift from my wonderful husband which he forgot about and found a little while ago.  This happens quite often I usually receive Christmas gifts throughout the year.  Don't get me wrong I like getting gifts anytime I just find it amusing when he comes in from the garage with a Christmas gift months past Christmas.

The locket in the picture was my husbands mother's and inside when I opened it stored in it for safe keeping was this paper cut out of a child's art work which I thought was special and I thought was something my husband had done for her.
however he assures me it was not him.  His mother was a teacher so we think maybe a student might have done the cut out.
You may remember back a few posts ago I posted the blue jar above well I went down and unpacked the two other jars to show you the three I have found over time.

The above Pictures above are from my husbands family photo's .

I couldn't stop myself I just had to add This Anne Taintor Picture.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
Have a lovely week.
