The birdbath below is full of rain water. It has been drippy drizzly cold for the last 5 days. (Yes, I am counting.) The weather here has been in the low thirties today and I found frozen water in a pot saucer on the north side of the building. These last few cold days have have not bothered me too much - I think I am finally used to the cold weather and remember how many layers to wear each day.
The roses are still blooming, mexican mint marigold in the herb ring is (finally) blooming. Got 2 acorns off the burr oak tree (left) and am loving the colors on the maple tree and the caster bean.
Creekside Rummager found this great photo of a Christmas tree made out of funnels (on Pinterest). This photo was motivation for a day at the local antique mall (warm and dry inside). Not that I was going to find anything that we could actually afford but a great way to spend the day.
Sparkley idea for an crystal ice bucket.
I used to have one... probably in storage.
Corn basket (?) chandelier - cute idea to steal. This one was marked $650.
Found a funnel - this one has a very nice sieve also - $95
Note to Creekside Rummager: I have not found any great places like you have out there. The search for funnels here may be futile.
I did make one purchase.- a rusty snowflake - to add to the collection.
I am easily amused.
