Hi everyone, here is this week’s Sunday Sevens, a little ode to randomness that doesn’t merit a whole post. For info about Sunday Sevens, please pop in to see the creator, Natalie, over at Threads & Bobbins. There are no real rules, just sharing of seven(ish) pictures.
This is my eighth week, but it is Week 52 for Natalie and those who joined right away. It’s been such fun trying to make the mundane seem interesting for these past few weeks.
My oh-so-fabulous new apron will have a post of its own in the next day or two, so here is a bit of miscellaneous “stuff around the house” for your Sunday Sevens viewing. We didn’t go out much as it was just too &%$#*@ hot. Yesterday was the hottest day of the week 90 degrees – with 100% humidity! (How is that even possible?)
COFFEE ON THE PORCH
This morning, in anticipation of another sweltering end-of-summer day, we had our morning coffee on the front porch. We enjoyed the gentle breeze, and slightly cooler temperature.
WELCOME TO OUR (WELSH, IRISH) AMERICAN HOME
We definitely plan to paint the dreary and not-so-very-welcoming entryway. The same color extends upstairs and into the landing. Something a little lighter, brighter, and well…more welcoming!
I LOVE PITCHERS
This old German one picked up at a yard sale many years ago is definitely missing something…
An antique Welsh (or English?) pitcher with broken spout is valuable only to me.
This sweet little bovine, French porcelain, was purchased with our wedding dishware.
UNCLE TOM’S GOLF TROPHY
My mother’s brother Tom was my favorite person in the whole world. Though he died when I was only seven, I still vividly recall his twinkly blue eyes and lilting voice as he called me his “little Jenny Wren”. An avid and accomplished golfer, this barometer was one of his many trophies.
We took a short train ride New York State Fair in Syracuse. Hot. Hot. Hot. But lots of buildings with nice cold air, a diary building with milk for 25 cents, a fabulous Native American show, more food than anyone could eat, horticulture, crafts, music, and of course, animals. Unfortunately, the animals were in transition on the day we visited, so very few were open to visit. We did see a few horses (oh, the most beautiful Percheron), a newborn calf and 6 laboring mothers, pigs, a couple of llamas, and this little charmer named April.
Have a great week everyone!
