I thought I would share some of my treasures from last weeks 70 mile
yard sale on the eastern end on the Island.One of my favorite finds was
this old iron bed for the boathouse for $10. It inspired me to do a little
makeover in the boathouse.....yep already!
The white wicker chair was $25-I will give you a better look at it soon but it might be a
think I will store some lace and linens in it.
it is on was $2.
I got some other smaller things but have not photographed them yet. I think I
did pretty good getting these treasures and it was a fun day-albeit a long one.
My husband thought they should rename it the 12 hour yardsale-I am pretty
sure he was happy I went with a friend this year!
Lots of traffic!
We enjoyed our picnic lunch here by the lighthouse in Point Prim.
I was a lovely day!
Hard to believe the weekend is here again- I better stay home this weekend and get some work done
we have some tours from Japan over the next couple of weeks and then time to do the fall clean up
in the garden. However, we are promised some warm sunny days this weekend so I am looking
forward to enjoying them.
I am joining Show & Tell Friday at My Romantic Home.
Hope you have a lovely weekend!

The little conservatory on the back of the boathouse that my husband and son built
in the past year is a lovely place to enjoy a little quiet time and a cup of tea.
my tea and taking some time to write in my journal.
in the conservatory.
I am looking forward to more sunny afternoon teas surrounded by some of the garden beauty
that I enjoy.
Guess,I haven't written since the 70 mile yard sale. We had beautiful weather and my friend and I covered a lot of territory in our 12 hour day but still didn't get to all the sales. We were both happy with our day and the new treasures we found.My biggest purchase was a flat bottomed boat for our pond but more on all that later.
Thank you for visiting,

I hope your week went well.We have had some beautiful sunny days this week so I spent some time taking some photos. Since our garden is well past it's prime I seem to be moving back indoors a bit more. I loved seeing the sun shining into the kitchen and though you might enjoy seeing some red and white touches in the kitchen as well as my red and white transferware.
are not-they were built about 8 years ago
to my husbands great aunt.I was thrilled to have it given to me by my sister in law.
Hope you enjoyed a peek into my cupboards today.
Tomorrow, I am off early in the morning for our 70 mile yardsale with over 150 vendors covering a distance
of ...... well 70 miles! There will be lots of shoppers and the weather looks very promising. I am packing a picnic lunch and taking my camera too. Now if you see any red and white transferware........don't touch it!!!!! Ha! Ha!
Hope you have a fun weekend!

It is a beautiful September day here so I am just popping in for a few minutes to share the recipe for Oatmeal Scones that some of you asked for and the peach preserve recipe as well.
here except I chopped by hand
instead of using the food processor and I used less sugar as they will not last long anyway!
1 1/2 cups of flour- I usually use part spelt and part unbleached white flour
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup of melted butter
1/3 cup of milk
whisk dry ingredients together and then whisk liquid ingred. and add to dry.
mix gently together - knead a few times then flatten into a circle about 1/2 inch thick.
Place on cookie sheet.
Sprinkle top with a tablespoon of sugar or sugar and cinnamon.
Bake at 375 for about 15 min.
Thank you for your visit and I hope you will enjoy the scones and peach preserves.
