Summer greetings

Hello there!

So much time has passed since my last post!  What a beautiful summer we are having!

I thought I would share a little bit of garden beauty since we lasted visited.  These flowers were such a joy as I looked out my kitchen window.

Lupine!   A new flower to love!

Abbie planted these in the cutting garden last year and this was our first season for flowers.  I think they are so majestic looking.  They have finished blooming now and I am missing their splendor, but now some of the phlox is blooming and they are tall and beautiful too.

Today we visited a local rummage sale on the way to the Farmer’s Market.  It is a huge sale with lots of things to look at…and good prices!  In the housewares section I found this jar with the wire clasp and the small vase, both of which didn’t have prices marked on them.  I was thinking of just getting those two items.  When Bill took them up to be priced, the lady put them in a gallon ziplock bag and said that we could put as much as we could fit in the bag for $3.  If we didn’t find anything else we wanted, she said to come back and she would reprice it.

While he was waiting in line…such a good guy! :), I was browsing around!

I was so excited to find this egg beater!  I love it and it is in perfect condition!  So into the bag it went along some other things!  We even tried it out tonight making some whip cream and it whipped it up wonderfully!

A cheese slicer and pie server with a matching little fork were some of my finds

Along with an extra whisk which will come in handy, and this wonderful set of salad tongs.  The tongs are small,  yet heavy duty and so easy to use.  And I didn’t have a pair!

All of this fit into the bag along with another little bottle and the little cruet at the top which I thought would be cute to use as another flower vase!  This was so fun!  It was so nice to find such useful items!

It was a beautiful morning at the market.  When we first got there the sun was shining and there was a nice gentle breeze which made it so pleasant.  Going to the market is one of the blessings of summer.

I hope you are enjoying some simple blessings of this wonderful season too!

  1. I hope the flowers bloomed like that for the 4th of July! Did you plan it to be red, white and blue???
    And weren’t you blessed at the yard sale? Bag sales are such fun – especially when you can find items you can use!

  2. Hello, Sharon! Your flowers are beautiful! I love going to sales too…all sorts of neat things just waiting to be found! You really hit the jackpot! 🙂

  3. Oh, such wonderful treasures from your out and and about time! I have two vintage egg beaters and I use one in my kitchen and the other we have in our Camper Van. I love old fashioned kitchen gadgets. Thank you for sharing. Hugs ♥ Teri

  4. Hi Rebecca! I do feel I was blessed going to this sale! Unfortunately, the flowers were finished blooming by the 4th of July, although there is a small one blooming right now. My daughter just planted a seed packet of assorted colors I think. It is fun that they turned out like that.

    Sweet blessings!
