A Day Off!

Took Sunday Off!
Spent the day watching a NCIS Marathon, with the Chief!
Here are a few images of the gatherings from the Auction...Dale and I are going to get the rest Wednesday....
I'm working in the shop today...{the first time I will have walked through the doors. since I have been back from Nashville...oh dear...the Boys and I went through the little shop...like a Bull, in a China Shop...or Three Bulls...oh dear!}
I have put the word verification, back on my blog, when you leave a comment...too much spam! I have received an anonymous comment, Twice, concerning boycotting American women... I gotta tell ya...I totally understand...{sadly...I agree, with much stated....but...I think a lot of 'wanting your cake, and eating it, too'... got us, where we are...plenty of blame, to go around...and...we have all suffered the consequences... } but... I will not post it, or any comment, without a way for me, and my followers to easily recognise, who is behind the comment....Hiding behind a cloak of attempted anonymity, is not for me...as you know...I'm pretty much...'out there'....if you believe in something, enough, to put it in writing... put your name on it......stand behind it!... I learned a long time ago, anonymous, is Never anonymous, in computer land... I can pretty much get to your back door....and...I'm pretty much computer illiterate! think what folks could do, with a computer trained brain!
Here are a few images I captured this morning...
The concrete piece, is wonderful.... It's a bench...and a very lovely one..... perfect for Spring! This image depicts, just a small portion of one of it's legs... very ornate...
I picked up a nice group of Fancy Garden Gates....
The rake, was a 'must'...it's 30 inches wide...with heavy wire, and an iron top... perfect for my Wine Glasses...John has been talking about making something for them...{he doesn't drink wine... and hates the glasses stacked precariously on the old Pie Safe....} This is Perfect! I'll have him help me find the perfect, permanent spot, then filler up!
Hope Everyone Has a Most...Amazing Day....
Love, to Ya1
