Here is the vintage birdcage from my BFF that I recently painted...
on the front porch with an ivy inside.
Atop my country cupboard in the unfinished laundry room.
Here it is again downstairs in my unfinished room.
I had to take Stickley the Bungalow Cat to the vet for her claw clipping and some dematting. Her arthritic joints are making it hard for her to groom herself. She hates the cat kennel carrier and lets me know by meowing at the top of her kitty cat lungs during the 10 minute car ride. When we enter the vets she must smell the other cats and dogs and she stops immediately. She is happy that the trauma is behind her and found a sunny patch on the carpet to curled up and went to sleep!
I met lovely daughter for some grocery shopping and then a sushi lunch. We thrifted for a bit and I got a large wicker basket to put my backyard veggies in when I harvest them. I also found a vintage black leather clutch and a book on backyard makeovers all for under $10.
We stopped in at a second hand cum antique shop and I found a large black vintage tin tray for $10....to add to the black theme I have been chasing!
Domestics are nearly done, I am taking a tea break and blogging.
I have to get chopping as I am making a vegetable rich dish with beef shanks which will be simmered for several hours...it is bascially onions, celery, carrots sauteed until soft then brown the beef shanks in oil and add stock and simmer for 2 hours...its easy peasy and tastes great!
While the meal simmers I plan to read a bit...have been so busy gardening that I forget to sit and read...besides my muscles are a wee bit sore...so a good excuse...wouldn't you agree?
