A Birthday & A Few Treasures

Twenty nine years ago today David and I were blessed with a son, Matthew David.  I thought he'd never get here. Three and a half weeks past his due date, he finally decided it was time, 7 lbs 10 1/2 oz, 21" long, a little bit of blond hair and big, blue eyes. He has grown into a fine, handsome, young man and his dad and I couldn't be more proud !

Happy, Happy Birthday Bud !!!

Last weekend we went to some sales and an auction.  Found a few things at some garage sales and tried really hard to get some neat garden and architectural pieces at the auction.  We came away with just a few things, it was a tough crowd.  Most of the really cool garden stuff we wanted went to a guy that owned a big garden nursery in Indianapolis and was going to use it for his displays. At the end of the day we came away with a great old gate, trellis, an old red & white quilt, a child's tea set and a few other smalls.

Yesterday, we came across this early child's wheelbarrow.  Looks great on the dining room table and I can imagine it full of David's carved pumpkins and some bittersweet this fall at the Country Living Fair in Columbus, Ohio ... that's if it doesn't take up permanent residence on my table.

All in all, not too bad for a weekend. 
Happy hunting y'all !!
