Good Monday Morning
Blogging Friends

It's such a pretty day,
it's hard to stay inside.

But, it's Monday
and it's wash day...

Sometimes, I wish I still had a clothesline.
Not all the time, mind you.
Just for the sheets and such.

Sometimes, does your hubby do something that just
drives you up the wall?

Mine said he was going to mow the lawn this morning.

He came back inside and asked me to come tell him how much
to cut back this tall palm tree in the front yard.
Just the dead fronds, I tell him.
(Is that what you call those limbs on a palm tree?)

And then I happen to look over,
and bless Pat, he has cut my Sago palms back, 
just butchered them! 
They were so lush and green!
What! Why, I ask?

They poked him when he mowed the grass, he says.....

I just come back inside, and continue on.
They'll grow back next year, I guess....

My little row of tomatoes and peppers and cukes
are really growing.
Can't wait to taste that first fresh tomato.

We did go to the fresh fruit market yesterday 
and found lots of goodies.

I do love this time of year.

BamBam is watching a John Wayne movie.
Ms.Wilma told him he had to babysit.

I'd better go check on her,
no telling what's she's up to!

Have a great week,
and Dino

And it rained, and it rained and it rained...

It's rained for about two weeks straight!
But that hasn't stopped the Estate sales..
We found a great one a couple of weeks ago.

This vintage tablecloth with strawberries was square and my table is round but I brought it home anyway!

Every room in the house was full of vintage goodies.
Dishes, linens, books, Christmas decorations, furniture, they said everything must go!

There was enough of this fabric for me to make several dish towels.

I bought a stack of vintage hankies.

There were bags of lace, fabric, thread,
jello molds...

Vintage ornaments and a pair of cute German dolls.

Joy, Joy,
happy dance!!
I finally found one of these vintage metal 
Christmas tree stands!

I hope the sun is shining where you are,
or at least you find a dream Estate Sale
in the rain!

That Wilma says just put on your rain hat
and go play in the rain.

Best wishes,
and baby Dino

Viv's Easter Swap

Are you ready for Easter?

I'm ready for some warmer weather and Spring flowers myself.

Don't you just love blogging swaps?
My partner this year was Debby at

She sent the cutest bunny basket filled with 
all kinds of adorable.

I love the sparkly hen ornament.
Hens Rule!

Look at these sweet miniatures.
The flower pot may go in my dollhouse~

Debby made this little bunny in the cabbage patch.
Isn't this the sweetest thing?
I love it all.

This was the basket I sent to Debby.

Thank you Debby
for being such a sweet swap partner.

And thank you, Vivian
for sponsoring the swap!

Have a great week everybody.


Dorothy, Ms.Wilma, BamBam and Dino
