Whole Lotta Soakin' Goin' On!
This is the first of the treasure from the latest button score - the plastics. That is all I have finished cleaning to show so far. You can click the picture bigger. This was a huge tin and it took me several days and some very sore fingers, to get them sorted and the strings picked out.
This was a real button tin in as-found condition so it included all those odd things that make their way in to button tins. No bullets or baby teeth this time but lots of dry beans and corn. Weird! I don't know what happened to these buttons but I suspect they were spilled out on a cellar floor and swept back up and plunked back in the tin. Nobody know the trouble they have seen but there are happier days ahead for them!
Holly at Damita's Pretty Wrap and I were joking the other day about what a great theme "what's in your kitchen sink" would be for us junking aficionados!
Nothing to do with junk but must share a few garden pictures. My hydrangeas are back to their full blue glory this year. The last couple years they have been a mix of blue, lavender and pink, like an impressionist painting.
There are a still a few renegade pink blooms but mostly blue this year and I'm loving it.
The water lilies are also putting on a show this year. Yesterday there were four blooms. I need to put on my water socks and take a little walk in there. The lily pads are about a foot across and some are extended above the water - a sure sign they are pot bound.
I hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend. The Husband and I are celebrating 39 years today.
