The Dog Ran Through My Tulips

When DS and his little friend A. were 3 they beheaded all my tulips with their "I have the PowerHe-Man" swords. Wish I would have taken pictures on that day.

This week D Dog ran through and over the tulips in his never ending quest for being somewhere else. Delicate stems. At least I could rescue and enjoy them in the house.







Not much difference I think, except it doesn't bother me the way it did when I was younger.


Its almost May, where is the time going?



I did work on a painting project this week. I painted four ordinary frames with CeCe Caldwell Chalk Clay paint in Santa Fe Turquoise and finished with clear wax.




I collect frames from thrifts and garage sales, remove any contents, sand and repair if necessary and then occasionally do a 'group of frames' project. They are handy for grouping 3-D collections.

I am in love with pretty right now. Love the spring greening and flowers, the sunshine, green mossy grass, softer rains. First back yard mow on Sunday.



Happy Birthday DH.

Thanks for visiting.
See you again on Monday.

Embrace The Eclectic 3 Vintage and Rusty

Totally love the title - it describes what so many of us do every week while out garage sale - ing,  flea - ing, thrift - ing. This month my eclectic find is rusty junk in the back yard.

Maybe I should be worried, because all of this great junk is still in my possession.


a worn and rusty two handled logging saw (?), one handle missing
a great Turquoise Rocket metal wagon, rusted
old golf clubs, vintage sewing basket and a piece of driftwood
can't remember 'what it is' but I love the metal/wood mix and the inventive construction, edge of an old egg carrying box and the worn corner of a window

a pile of great junk, nails I left out in the rain a rusty shovel and a pile of hinges and junk with rust
a great score of oil containers and relanted junk
one of several boxes of vintage dusty sealers 
rusty grater, inside of a tin box and a close up of an old typewriter complete with spider webs and stuff

I feel totally rich with this great collection of junk.
