I was reading a favorite blog the other day and saw some neat vintage bowls that Koralee at Bluebird Notes blog had been collecting. She started with a small turquoise Pyrex bowl. I have one oval "Oven Serve Ware" bowl - it's small, I think it's for making baked custards. I have several smaller round ones too. They come in gold, turquoise, pink, ivy green, brown and pumpkin. My favorite is the turquoise. I did a search for them when I left her comment and found 2 listed on Etsy.. a turq and gold one. So, I bought them. Now I have 2 blue ones! At dinners I often put butter in them. Don't you just love the embossed flower designs?
Today our youngest son Travis came out with his youngest son - he went up on the roof to blow off the pine needles that fall off the large Douglas Fir & Cedar trees in our woods. He wanted to make sure his Dad didn't go up there! Wasn't that sweet?Caleb came in to visit "gamma" and Grandpa gave him a sucker. Then Grandpa went out to watch our son. He finished the first one off and then went to see if there were more where G got that one.. and he found a 2nd one. Then a 3rd. And a 4th. Grandpa is now out of suckers. :-) Grandpa should have never let him see where he kept them. In his key basket by the back door. The gig is up.
I adore this child. He's our youngest and will be forever the baby. No more children will be coming.
I went out to enjoy the sunshine with the guys and caught the sun shining through the red leaves of the Japanese Maple.. they will turn brighter in a day or two.
I liked seeing the red of the maple reflected in the pond.
The Birch tree above the pond is yellow...
This is a *huge* Pin Oak that is at the side of our house.. it turns a brilliant red, and it's half turned now. It's usually all red by Thanksgiving.
I saw this moss of the downed maple tree in the driveway and snapped this photo.
A strawberry leaf is all red.
The Hydrangea leaves are turning purple and yellow. The weatherman is predicting nice weather this week. I can go for that! I hope it's nice where you are and .. thanks for visiting! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
