I liked this tin planter so well that I brought it home
and made a table runner in the same colors.
Isn't he sweet?

working at the car wash

Grandpa thought it would be a good idea
 to have a car wash in honor of Father's Day...
Grandpa believes in child labor just as his parents did.
Some of the work gets kinda hard
This ain't no place to be if you planned on bein' a star
Let me tell you it's always cool
And the boss don't mind sometimes if you act the fool
His two helpers took their job very seriously.
At the car wash
Workin' at the car wash, girl
Come on and sing it with me

The barn quilt Mr. b made me is finished and hung on my shed.
(Well, actually it's more of a playhouse.)
Of course...I love it!
Ideas for a fall quilt are already rolling around in my head.

Our three-year-old granddaughter told this grandma
she needed more clothes for her dolly Rainbow.
It didn't take me long to dig out a pattern and fabric.

I love it when the granddaughters ask me for things.
Grandpa says "NO" isn't in my vocabulary when it comes to these girls.

~g is for grandma

This weekend we...
... enjoyed homemade buns.
This is a new recipe using molasses.
...bought a Blackstone griddle for camping.
My family agrees I need to stay off pinterest
 which is where I saw these.
Dakota Man is making cornhole games...
also for camping.
I'm enjoying rose and mock orange cuttings.
How was your weekend?
