And now to some of my latest finds:
#2 Favourite Time of The Day: morning, I have always been a morning person & in the Summer & early Autumn you can find me sitting on the patio to enjoy the morning quiet & the way the sun appears across the field.
#3 Something To Represent Home But Not The Building: my cats represent home to me as they are a huge part of the comfort I find at home. (yes they are on the table ... but at least we were done lunch 😊)
#4 Head In The Clouds: this cloud was part of several big thunderhead clouds seen from our front door during moments before a big storm. We experienced a lot of rain, thunder & wind from this storm but the city north east of us (about a 2 hour drive) experienced major damage from the tornado born out of these storm clouds.
#5 The Art Of The Fold: three of my specialty folded cards. The more I get into card making, I know my strength is not in ink stamping but in paper on paper so I am trying to build my paper skill with artful folds.
#8 Window Views: this is the church I attend & for the last 17 months I have only been able to view from the outside & I have missed looking out the stain glass windows from the inside. There are 5 types of windows in this photo & each one frames the same view in a different way.
#9 Something Older Than You: this is a tea cup & saucer from the set of fine bone china that Mr Man inherited from his Mom. I did not know her as she had passed away before Mr Man & I started dating. This china set was apparently something she was very proud of buying before her marriage to Mr Man's Dad, part of her hope chest.
#18 Upside Down, Right Side Up: our crazy black squirrels.
#20 Decades of Sharing: I believe this set of corn on the cob "plates" is from the 80's possibly the 70's. I inherited this set from my Foster Mom a couple years ago when she was downsizing to move into a senior's apartment. They, at the time, amused me, so yes I lay claim to them. Maybe after this season of fresh corn on the cob they might be part of the August de-cluttering challenge!
Alternate B: A Local Landmark: this home was once a private boy's school known as The Academy, built in 1853 by William Wetherald, a Quaker. The school closed in 1883. The movie, Agnes of God, used this home as the convent. The current owners use not only as their home but as their art gallery & pre-COVID, each August they hosted an open house to the gallery. Maybe next year.
And that is a wrap for me for now. Our next check in/link in will be the day after the closing of the 2021 SPSH, Friday October 1st.
