Fresh Berries

Show and Tell was given a rest this weekend. Summer has arrived and holiday time is just around the corner. The last day of school is Wednesday June 25th, for my two children.

We went to the local market and bought some wonderful strawberries, blue berries and raspberries. No sugar required. Perfect already. It is so nice to have fresh local fruit again :-)

My new Weed Eater ~ Isn't she sweet !

I know, two posts in one day! I just had to share these photos. The same deer that came to visit us last weekend, on Father's day, is back again. I guess she likes our weeds, LOL. We have 3 acres on our property and about half of it is meadow. I guess she likes it ! Better to eat those wild flowers than my garden :-)

I was hiding (ha!) behind the small Oak Tree to take these pictures.

She knew I was there, but didn't seem to mind.

She was watching me, and my cat (that curiously wanted to see what was going on).

She really likes those flowering weeds. She most likely has a sleeping fawn nearby. The local Humane Society has newspaper and radio ads every spring. They advise people to leave the "abandoned" fawn alone. Mommy is most likely grazing nearby.
They don't leave their babies alone for long.
Maybe I will have pictures of a tiny fawn soon :-)

Happy weeding !

I won 2 Giveaways recently ~ thank you so much !

and a hand painted hat box (by Nancy)

Lovely Linens,

Ginger Tea and floral napkins.
Thank you so much ! I feel very spoiled :)


My second lovely Giveaway is from Mandy at Herb Girl . Mandy also has an Etsy Shop and you can view her ~ Bloom N Bottles ~ here .

I just love the little bottle (perfect little Daisy vase)

My two children were quick to scan the cook book

Thank you so much Nancy and Mandy!

Your Thank You cards are on the way !!!!

Pretty in Pink ~ Victorian Doll

This doll is a reproduction but you really have to look closely to be able to tell. She is signed and dated 1980 on her shoulder plate.

I just love her feathered hat.

Her Clothing is silk with lace trim. It is all fully lined.
Expertly made with French seams, piping and bows.

She has a bustle, half slip, pantaloons and camisole.

She is just over 14 inches tall.

I love her little black boots.

I will likely post her on eBay in a day or so . . . Etsy does not have a doll category or an antique category (only vintage) . . . so I think a Victorian Style Doll will be easier to find on eBay.
