Eye Candy ~

I do hope everyone had a wonderful, safe holiday.  The weather in Ohio sure can change quickly.  Two days ago we were sweltering in high temps and humidity, and today it is jeans and sweatshirt weather.  I am NOT ready for summer to end.  As so many others have commented, Labor Day is the unofficial end to summer :(

I took a few pictures at Wink's house that I will share with you.  Many years ago I caught the "antique flu" from her.  We still have the disease :) 
Wink has a great collection of patriotic items.  (Soon they will all be put away to make room for her fall decor.)  I am going to steal this idea from her.  She grouped a collection of cobalt blue bottles and filled them with American flags.

More patriotic items . . .

This is a perforated paper sampler.

Child sized dry sink.

A very small part of her featheredge collection.  She is the one who introduced me to it many years ago.

These are a few of the reproduction samplers I gave her over the years. 


Her first grandbaby, 12 month old Clayton.  Isn't he just too cute?

Pug hugs :)

Wonderful pictures! I'm with you as far as having a case of the antique flu. I hear there is no cure and that it is highly contagious.
