Monday Stuff

I always enjoy taking part in Good Random Fun on Mondays, as I can sort of share my last week of events. So thanks for hosting this, Tamar.

Good:
When we were visiting in Illinois, I took pictures all over the farm, but also was able to take on from my sister-in-law's hutch that I thought you might enjoy. It's interesting these are not all made by the same manufacturer, but so similar in style.

Random:
You remember that I'm packing, right? Our move is next week, as we sign for the house a week from tomorrow. You may not see much of me after this week for a bit. As I am cleaning out the garage, I took a picture of the items that are stacked up and ready to move.

Also, since my husband is a pack rat  collector of many items, I took this picture of some old stuff. The one license plate is from South Dakota in 1914! The trailer one is from 1941. Who knows the origin of the hard hat. And the tools ... who knows how old they are?

Fun:
My first bloom from the hibiscus is open!

And from my Facebook friends... For all of you for whom English is not our native language, I'm sure you can relate to this. English is very hard to learn, so congratulations to you who have done so well with it on the blogs. This is for Janie J-bug.

Have a fabulous week ahead!

I hope that the rest of the packing and sorting things out goes well and that the move itself goes really well too!! See you again when you are all in if you don't make it back to blogging before then. Enjoy your new home!! xx

What a great selection of pictures, Linda. The rose china is so beautiful, I would love them in my collection. Moving is so difficult - we are collectors too, and it does increase the work when packing up. You look very organised though. I like the ancient tools - my HB has a few of them as well, which I imagine will move on with us next time we make a move. Good luck with it all!

Best wishes with you move! Moving is so much work but so rewarding once everything is in place. May the force be with you!

Rebecca said...

Busy times for you. I like that old stuff! I would decorate with it somehow. :) And I am impressed that the china is by different manufacturers. It looks the same to me! Rebecca

jandi said...

oh my! that is a lot of stuff to go through! and the Victorians all copied each other!

Cherdo said...

We're riding the fence about putting our house up for sale. We have an equal list of loves and hates. The main thing we love is the privacy but we constantly have things that need repaired and replaced because of its age and it just a unique house. Unique is realtor talk for "everything you do cost double." I need a "slide into retirement" house.

But when I look at your packing efforts...the tables tip the other way...

Cranberry Morning said...

My mom had a pitcher much like the one in your first photo. What beautiful stuff! And I like the photo of the old tools and plates. I'm always on the look out for old signs.

Friko said...

Best of luck with the move and happy landings in your new home.

No, English is not hard to learn. Says I.

The Yum List said...

What pretty things today.

Carol Blackburn said...

Certainly lots of good, random, fun things to go through in that garage. I hope the packing and moving goes smoothly.

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

That last one made me laugh out loud because I have always thought someone was a little tipsy when they made up that rule!! :)
Good luck with your move and I hope it goes smoothly for you. Have a blessed day.

Claudia Willison said...

What fun 'English lesson' - makes me smile (being German and all) :)

Rory Bore said...

Ha - that Facebook post is perfect and spot on!! I never did get that rule - why even have it? LOL

note to self: get a hibiscus plant. gorgeous bloom!!

hope the move goes smoothly.

Janice C said...

Lots of luck with the packing, it's not easy!
