My friend Gracie and I had lunch together on Monday. We both wore our newly finished shawls. Gracie made one using the yarn I used for the Ruby shawl.. doesn't it look wonderful on her? I'm enjoying wearing my pink and muted brights on my Sunday Shawl. We had a nice long chat over lunch before she heads off for a very long road trip to see family.
We both had the crab salad and, oh my, was it good!
The guys have put a primer coat of paint on the areas that need it.
The "before" photos! :-)
The garden shed is getting painted right now.
The face of the garage-barn was really dried up so our son Travis scraped it and they put a primer coat all over it.
The end of the house -- "before".
The front. Yes, the xmas lights need to come down. LOL!
Meet Lee, our painter! He worked with Travis at The Oregonian newspaper for years in the press room.
This is a fuzzy shot but I love the bright red cherries on the wild cherry tree.. the birds love them!
The red Crocosmia is blooming.. I adore this plant and it reminds me of the beach where they grow them a lot.
Talk about RED!
I'd given this bracelet to Gracie for her birthday and on Monday I noted she wasn't wearing it.. she showed me that it was broken so I offered to re-string it with soldered jump rings. Our blog friend Meredith had sent me some bead supplies not long ago when she decided she wasn't going to use them any longer. So, I told her I'd share with Gracie. I went through her supplies and found the soldered rings and also two very special beads to add to Gracie's bracelet, the cute little owl beads. I texted a photo to Gracie and she said the owls reminded her of Meredith's love of feathers and was happy to have something of Mere on the bracelet too. :-)
Aren't these wonderful owl beads? Thanks, Meredith for your gift to me and to Gracie.
The garden shed has some red on it now.. and Hayden got to help paint as far as he could reach. :-) I love it!
The next post on Friday I should have some more photos of red buildings.. with white trim! How is your week going? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
