You are a sweet grandmother!
I made an arrangement out of dried wheat once and won a blue ribbon at the fair!

Fruit Salad with Egg Yolks- that might even beat out Jello with Veg-All for the "What Were They Thinking?" award!

Love your farmers market. They are so much fun. Those radishes looked fantastic. That overnight case looks just like one my grandmother had--wish I had it now and I would send it to you to "doll" up for me. You have such an eye. Bet you are in the middle of the biscuit and gravy breakfast right now. What a lively home you have. I love visiting with you.

Karla!
I love the idea of shopping the garage sales for baby items for the grands! I going to be a Gram this December and am so excited. What a good idea to have special clothes JUST for Gram's tea parties! Oh I like that idea!

Wrapping breakables in laces -- charming idea!

I can tell you how to grow Queen Anne's Lace. When you see it growing, don't dig it up, but instead, wait for it to dry. It will turn into little mini bird-nest shapes and all those little flowers make into seeds. Snatch up the very dry "bird nests" and then scatter them wherever you want QAL. I promise you, you'll be pulling it out from everwhere after a year or two. You might want to try it in a distant flower garden/field.

I do think that the flower you thought was Queen Anne's Lace is a relative. I'd say it's wild carrot, which is in the same family. QAL has the "ruby pin" in the middle tho.

Yarrow grows wild in the pastures where I live. I have it in my flower beds too (mostly wildflowers).

Fun, fun, fun post!

You had a great weekend! What a great idea to save dress-up dresses for tea purposes with grandbaby & you!

Hi Karla! Sounds like you had a wonderful day! I love going out treasure shopping!! It is the best therapy!

I am so excited about our fairy swap and I am so glad to be swapping with you! I have started mine but won't be finished until tomorrow.

Have a great night! Heather

Karla, looks like you did well at the garage sales. My hubby and I went today to a big flea market and also stopped at several yard sales. Of course we came home with a lot of junk we didn't need but a bargain is a bargain, right?
I have a question about the Queen Anne's Lace. We have a plant here in VA that looks a lot like it but my mother always warned us to stay away from it. She called it a "chigger weed". I think it might be a wild version of Queen Anne's Lace but I really don't know. I'm still afraid to touch it though!
