Sifting Through a Junk Dish
You might have an actual junk drawer. I do. This glass dish accumulation is on a smaller scale. The items need to be evaluated and most of them discarded.
An old eraser, the end of the curtain rod, Canadian coin, a single earring, perfume sample, a button from a blouse long gone, a knotty necklace chain, a pink polished rock, a rubber stamp square, a game token, a tiny key and an ivory brooch. I need the curtain rod piece. The rock can go in the dish of polished rocks I have on my desk in the hall. Maybe I have the other clip-on earring.

Always Fresh Bread- A Handmade Gift
A day to be appreciative of all we have in our lives. Olga, my DIL’s mother gave me a handmade linen bag with a special lining to keep bread fresh. Made in Ukraine.
After more than three weeks away, I slept in my home bed in a warm house last night. It was a long day of travel so lots of time to knit and reflect on a wonderful visit with my son and his family. I received many welcome home messages and it was lovely How good it feels to be able to travel again. To be with those you love. To meet a 2020 granddaughter.
I’m grateful for my family and friends and all of you who stop by here.
I found an article about Giving Thanks from Harvard Health Publishing and how it can make one happier. I believe it!
Rose of Sharon, Unfurled
“One plant commonly called “rose of Sharon” in the US is Hibiscus syriacus…….”
It’s not really a rose at all
There are Biblical Origins but scholars can’t agree
What’s by your bedside?
Unearthed from the Garden
A bit of broken glass from a candlestick. Two soldiers. A rusty toy car encrusted in dirt. A long screw.
A Favorite Appliance
Do you have a favorite appliance? My friend just repaired the pin that holds the head onto the body. It had worked its way out so the head wobbled when being used. I was so pleased it could be fixed as this Kitchen Aid mixer was a gift from my dad in 1986. It’s been a reliable workhorse in several kitchens where we’ve lived. A lot of birthday cakes and batches of cookies have been produced with it. And when I realized how happy I was it was fixed, I decided it’s my favorite appliance (with my toaster I received for my 50th birthday a close second).
Abandoned But Still Standing
I photographed this house before. New housing developments are all being built all around what used to be farmland, cornfields. Barns
