I purchased 2 white porcelain mugs to make a total of 4. I'm finding that I don't often make a pot of tea when company comes over. They chose their favorite from my selection and we each make our own mug of tea. I have 2 white ones I purchased from Winners several years ago. Yesterday two of these mugs were available for $1 each. Done. They came home with me so I can offer a larger or smaller mug to my company.
I picked chokecherries this week. The temperatures have not been cold enough to freeze over night which makes these sweeter but I did not take the chance of not getting any for the freezer. I will pick more once it's a bit colder if some one has not gotten to them before me. In the city most people don't understand about picking wild berries.
I have considered clips for hanging my calendars. Bull clips are not pretty so I was hoping for a pretty option. I found these wire clips at a large arts and crafts store this week. I have been thinking of providing a pretty clip to allow the hanging of my photo calendars. I know that the desk frame can be a problem for some people so this would provide an alternative. Being that they are metal I can adjust their color with alcohol inks to be more in tune with the colors in my calendars.
It's time for Concord Grapes. Yeah!!! These are the yummiest. I look forward to them every fall late summer. I picked some up the other day and have enjoyed them a lot.
I have been looking for a bottle brush for a while that did not cost and arm and a leg. This one I found at the thrift store the other for $1. It's a Pampered Chef product so it is good quality. It will be great to clean small vases and or bottles.
