summer treasures

Some simple shots of what's happening in our neck of the (vary mosquitto'y) world.

I have a piece in a group show that is at our local botanical gardens, we went to see it this last weekend with my mother in law.   It it a magical place every season of the year, especially this one.

Growing, picking, eating, preserving, storing.  We asked for it and we got it.  I just heard a 'clink' from a jar of pickles sealing in the kitchen,  sigh of satisfaction.

Treasure hunting today led me & Oscar to a crazy place we would go before we had kids ( because it is FILLED with junk.) But within that junk there were treasures. A  handmade quilt, a wooden tricycle, leather log carrier, black metal lunchbox, large tin serving platter ( seen under those green tomatoes) and ....

  this awesome awesome basket.  all for $60.  can't beat that

Heading to a dance tonight and camping after , crossing my fingers that we don't get eaten alive.  No twirly skirts for this dancing gal,  long pants and socks I'm afraid.   ta ta for now.

1. How long is your show up at Olbrich?? I want to check it out.

2. So where is this junk drawer/treasure chest of a shop??

3. When are we getting drinks? Seriously, woman. We need to get an evening or a lunch on the books.
