Saturday Stroll

Awhile back, I got my dad a book about World War II at the River Market Antique Mall. Yesterday, I took him there so he could look for himself. I wasn't interested in the books, but this concrete garden urn sure caught my eye.

As did this birdbath. You can't tell from the picture, but it's gigantic.

Loved these feeders!

I found these great letters and have already put them in a mosaic you can check out HERE on my other blog.

Dad loved the mall so much, he wants to check out another. I think it was the nostalgia that intrigued him. All those religious pictures that hung in his house and his relatives' houses years and years ago - he said 73 years has really flown by.

In Bloom

Spring is my favorite time of year. Check out the birdhouse, made by my friend Piper. It's in a tree outside of my front door and seeing it every day makes me smile.

The plants are coming in well. It's hard to believe they'll be okay over the long, dead winter. Come on roses!!!

I planted my pansies in mid March. They don't mind a light dusting of snow.

Japanese maple.

No real chickens like at Sharon's here; mine are concrete.

I haven't had a solid antiquing spree in a long, long time. Going to a huge flea market in a couple of weeks so plenty of new treasures for the booth coming soon!!!
