Another This and That

Sorry for the blurry picture but these 2 Black Capped Chickadee's were having fun in the birdbath.  The sun on the window caused the glare.


One of my Trumpet vines and it has a lot of blooms on it this year.  They are just starting to open.  Many more to come.


Another Granny Square Doll Blanket for the Giving Doll.


Hand sanitizer bottle holders for you purse or what every you are carrying.  I need to get the bottles to fill them yet.  I will donate them to the church bazaar in Nov.


New carpet on my inside porch steps.  The old one was getting worn on the edges and we were afraid it might cause us to fall.  Besides I had a gift coupon for $25.00 and that covered the carpet and the tacks to hold it in place.  It should last us a long time.

Little of This and That

My Star Gazer Lilies are starting to bloom.


This is tomato plant #1  They sure are getting bigger.


Tomato plant #2.  That is the total of our garden and they are in pots.


This is a potted planter I was given for Mother's day and the large leaf plant in the middle died off.  But look it is coming back up.  I am so glad.


2 more doll blankets for the Giving Doll.

Flowers, Hot air balloon and Doll Blankets

These are blooming now.





We have seen this balloon several times on our way home from our son's but never got close enough to get a good picture of it.  This picture has been blown up several times so you could see it well.


2 more Doll blankets for the Giving Doll.  I love the blue one but the purple one is a color I have always loved.  It was yarn that was given to me.

This and That

Here is the spouted bottle hubby bought me at the Seville yard sales last weekend.  He spent a whole $.25 on it.  But I love the bottle.


Four more doll quilts for the Giving Doll.

 
I was out taking pictures when the Hummer flew by.  He landed in my Trumpet vine and is right in the middle of this picture on my Trumpet vine.  He landed here first then flew to the feeder in the next picture.



My Day Lilies.


My Hosta.


First tomatoes on our potted plants.

Blooming now

These are the flowers that are in full bloom now.  Not sure if these are circle flowers or not.


Honeysuckle are taking over this area but they smell so good.


This is the young Wisteria I moved from Terry's this spring and these are it's first blooms since she got it.  Small but so pretty.

Doll Blankets and Rick-rack Flower

 2 more Doll Blankets corner to corner design For the Giving Doll.  They work up very fast.

I got a new canvas purse the other day and hubby said I had to add something to the front of it to make it really mine.  I always add something to my purses. I found this flower in Pintrest and had to make it.  It is from Rick-rack.  It was a little fiddly but I got it done.  I will add it to my purse as soon as I get it Scotchguarded. Then I will show you the finished purse.

Doll Blanket and Flowers

Here is the latest Doll Blanket for the Giving Doll.


Lots of flower pictures.  This Iris was moved from Eric and Terri's a couple of years ago and this is the 2nd year it bloomed.





This Iris has not bloomed for a few years but surprised me this year.


Terri and Eric gave me this pot and it sure likes the place it is sitting.




My white Poppies.


This rose is an off shoot from a peach ground rose I bought a few years ago.  Since then the peach one died but this one is going crazy.



This is a bud on the Wisteria we moved from Terry's and we cut it off when we moved it.  It has gotten leaves and now this nice surprise.  I can't wait to see it open.



This pink Peony has not bloomed for several years and I thought the Black Walnut tree near it had done it in but it surprised me this year and has 2 blooms.
