Vintage baby tub with iron stand

I've been wanting one of these for a long time.  A vintage Hungarian baby tub. 

They are just the cutest and so versatile.
Fill them with linens, plants, shells and stuff.

Great for parties just put a cork in fill with ice and
bottled beverages of your choice.

How about an immense shrimp tub?

 It would also work well to give our dirty little dogs
a bath. Now where is that dog shampoo?
Have a great week everyone.

A few final blooms.

Earlier in the week I was writing about Christmas decorations and today I'm holding onto summer with a few final blooms from some of our rose bushes. 

Here they are captured in the late afternoon sun

No editing other then resizing and adding text.

I liked how the sun highlighted the petals

So to all of you where summer is just beginning
I appreciate photos of your roses

because it's Mum season here.

Christmas silverware garden markers and signs. Elves in the workshop

Silverware Christmas signs and silverware Christmas garden markers.
The "elves" worked hard this summer instead of going boating or to the beach.

A freehand sketch was hammered dot by dot in the shape of tree into the silverware.

I know it's very early and seeing holiday decor in October has never been something I was fond of. I've been getting holiday orders since late August.

Since these are handmade to order they take time.


I liked how this set of reindeer spoons looks in a basket of shells,

Holiday colored lobster float

This little holiday colored lobster float was just too cute to leave at the flea market.

Red and Green colored holiday decorations have pretty much been banished from the living room and dining rooms so this is just perfect for outside!

Seagulls Surfers, and Sighs

I had forgotten about these photos taken right after Hurricane Earl.  We had never seen so many seagulls at once. Hundreds of them lined the beach.

It was like they were waiting to listen to a speaker or something.

To which my DB happily obliged by saying.
"We are so glad you could all be here today
I'm sure you are all wondering why this meeting was called..."

This youngster walked a little closer to hear it all.

Surfer's were enjoying some decent waves.

This one had some dance like movements going on.

Right up to the moment before he lost his balance.

These seagulls were literally in an "arrow" formation pointing to the water's edge.
I asked my DB to take my photo for my blog.
In a new dress I'm still not sure about. It's a bit short.
So here goes.

Yes, some of us should only wear pants!

"Honey, they won't be able to see you if you keep your sunglasses on."

Sigh, Sigh.

Antique Cars. A study in chrome

Numerous vintage car owners were invited to show off their rides at the recent antique wooden boat show.
You can visit that post here.

This photo is dedicated to Sea Laura. She really likes the color gray.

This is the drivers side of a fabulous old wood beach cruiser wagon.
It looked like it belonged in Ralph Lauren(tm) advertisement.

The gleaming dash of an American icon.

None other then a 1966 Mustang with a good old V8 engine. 
That in itself sent shivers down my spine.  
There is nothing like a vintage convertible with a V8.

It's owner stood by watching me crouching and studying the car.
 Offering to open the door for the dash photo I was after.

So did this one.

 While everyone else was trying to take photos of the
 entire car I was just after the chrome.


Several owners were intrigued by my "chrome" mission.
Asking if they should make sure it was free of fingerprints.

This was one stylin' wagon.

The paint and chrome on this car was amazing.

This little cutie could have come home with me.

It had it all. 
Convertible, chrome and it was a perfect shade of blue.

I tried to get the whole car in a photo, but there were so many
admirers gathered around it.

My day would have been complete if I had arrived on this.

Well, if it were aqua it would have.
