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.
