Above was taken last summer,
readying an outdoor pool area for its annual opening.
Below were taken just in time for Hallowe’en.

Additional treats here.
Spotted this immediately . . .
. . . after walking through the door, . . .
. . . so I grabbed it.
After several moments of incredulity, astonishment, and delight . . . I started reading. Oh. They’re notebooks.
Lovely Sewing Readers ~
Does this push boundaries too far?
Am I getting too intense??
Is there such a thing???
American sewers can keep their eyes peeled, possibly in several chain stores. (🇺🇸 $12.95)
Sorry, but I don’t know about elsewhere… however they do list a U.K. price of 🇬🇧£9.99 so there’s hope.
Had time to do a quick search – shh, don’t tell!

There’s a small child-height water feature by a library under shade trees that hasn’t been drained for the coming winter freezes.
Thought you might enjoy the colours!

I should explain.
I’m a cat person.
However, in 2008 I was wandering the streets north of Chicago and saw this little cutie.
I snapped a quick pic wiith the owner’s permission.
Never thought to ask the name or breed, but can’t forget the expression.
Hope you enjoy!

Have had these sitting on my desktop and do hope you’ll forgive me for forgetting to post them for Ailsa’s Travel Theme.
May we all enjoy the differences . . . and appreciate the similarities! 😉

Sometimes a day can turn right-side up in a tic.
Firstly, the lovely package from Thimberlia’s give-away arrived – yeah!!! Cannot thank her enough for sending these all the way from the U.K. Extra-extra-extra special treats!!!
Secondly, enough breezes kicked in so I didn’t have to spend another night in an hotel.
Should explain my ickle flat is detached on 5 sides, in a very strange arrangement in a complex of mostly traditionally attached-&-stacked flats. Below are before & after photos. Those windows on the right aren’t mine. Soo the brown doors at the ends of hallways? those will go!
PS/All the doors get painted this coming Thursday… fingers crossed!
Love the way it looks, so don’t mind the elbow grease it takes to get it so.
Well, not too much. 😉
For lovely Ailsa’s travel theme ~ hope you enjoy these grasses from across the U.S., beginning in the west and moving east. Thank you for visiting, and y’all come back (as they used to say down South)!

Half, a. [AS. healf] …️ a half view.
First, a quick view of my new table, which i don’t know if I like yet, as the top is black and things can get “lost” on it. Of course, the saving graces include drawers, where I can stash a lot of sewing toys & trinkets, plus I can always spray paint that top another colour, right?
