We were going through Rockville, Indiana when we noticed that this store was open that is open only now and then. We drove past, Roger asked if I wanted to stop...I said it didn't matter...so he went around the block and we went in and talked to the owners and proceeded to look around. The guy noticed that I liked sewing machines and when I was standing by one, he said he wanted to show me something.
He opened the drawer in the old treadle sewing machine cabinet and pulled out the wooden box....and opened it up like this. It had all these pressure feet. I knew what some of them were for, but others I had never seen anything that even resembled them. I did not take pictures then but had to go back...
I just had to show everyone...have you ever seen anything as neat as this???
This is a father and child...and this first pic is not the greatest but posting it anyway. I could not actually catch him in the act of feeding the baby...always behind something or happened too quick.
We're going back in time for Good Fences today...all the way back to 2006. First with this one from about 45 minutes north of us. Does it look at all familiar to you? It is the same fence featured earlier this summer...look here to see. Quite a different looking scene isn't. I know it is partly that everything is green and growing in the recent post, but still it is quite a change.
I couldn't resist this one of one of Mama Squirrel's babies. Also from 2006. Boy that seems a lifetime ago!
Thank-you Theresa for still taking the time to host this meme!
This is one of the daylilies I have...I only have 3 or 4 different colors. Roger had not noticed that the edges of this were ruffled till yesterday I think. Notice the little sweat bee and the other bug up on the petal that reaches to the right. I did not notice it till after I downloaded the pics. But I was noticing the little sweat bee.
Thought I would throw this one in also...be sure and click to expand. The other bug is still on that petal, but you cannot see it any better.
I bought a hibiscus this year...I think this color was called Rose Mallow.
And while I am at it, I just want to post this. This washed out look is how it came from the camera....I sort of like it. And I didn't like the look of the spiderweb in real life, but I think it adds to the picture.
I am again featuring Tennessee barns...still from the same day in April of 2011. I altered the first one to B&W, plus a few other alteratiosn trying to make it presentable. It was taken mid-day and was very washed out. Not so sure this is any better, but I am tired of fiddling with it.
Next we are going to have some glimpses of barns..
You can see by looking at this that the road is curvy with no place to pull off, so you just take what you can get in cases like this.
This is a barn that I remember--there was just no way to get a good view of it. So I am posting a couple different glances of it.
Just FYI, I took over 200 images on that drive, and the majority of them have a barn in them! So, I am just going to go through them and post a few of my favorites...even if I have posted them before.
Also, our granddaughter is still here, but leaving tomorrow. So I may be slow in visiting but will for try to get around to everyone before the week is out.
I bet this is not the photo you expected....if you only looked at the title. This is the first, and I think only time I have seen a skunk anything other than black and white. This was taken a few years ago at the strip pits. We have not seen it since.
