Thrifted Finds

Spring is sharing some great warm weather, no rain Sunday, great temperatures, 
even some sunshine. 
Garage sale finds were good this weekend. I am so glad the 'season' is back.
 I am always on the watch for wooden spools, cast iron and kitchen vintage.
I also scored a new to me weed eater that I can handle.
I did the edges of everything in the back yard and when DGS (did I mention he is 8 1/2 years old !!!) arrived he volunteered to mow the grass. He puts his best efforts and planning in to mowing - he plans his moves, likes long straight parallel lines and manages the lawnmower very well (yes he was very closely monitored by his Dad). It goes almost without saying that Grandma is VERY impressed. Peaches gnawed on her bone and watched from a safe distance.

  6. Hi Joy!

    You DS is having fun as he learns. Sounds like he is taking his time and planning his moves, that will serve him well throughout his life.

    I love how you frames all your photos. I need to find a program that I like.

  9. You found some great items. I also love collecting vintage kitchen ware. I always weed eat our lawn. Everytime hubby tries he butchers it. Wonder if he does it on purpose? lol! Great to know there is another weed eating woman out there. Sound like your little grandson is a keeper. So nice to have him help you out. Thanks for sharing this with Share Your Cup Thursday.
    Hugs,
