Weekend Update

1. Mailbox

I love rural mailboxes. Ours doesn't have that "old" feel too it, since its made from plastic, but here are some pictures of it. I'm trying to grow some plants at the base, but they aren't too big yet.

When I was out there taking these pictures, I couldn't help thinking about that movie called "Signs". Remember the aliens in the cornfield? Well, so far I haven't seen any aliens.

In this one some farmers were "burning off" their hay field.

2. Lizard. Bet you weren't expecting that! There's a lizard in my house. My step son first saw him last week sitting on the back of the love seat. Then I saw him Saturday scurrying through the kitchen.

Then yesterday I saw him sitting in the middle of the living room floor, twice. The first time he ran under the love seat and disappeared. The second time I grabbed a bucket and put it on top of him. I had to leave the house and so I put a sign on it that said "Lizard" so my guys could help get him out of the house. Well.... he got away during the process and is still in here..... somewhere.... (checking area around toes).

3. Baby Shower. I was invited to a baby shower for a neighbor's new baby grandson. Saturday afternoon I made a quick baby quilt and a set of 3 burp cloths, but forgot to take pictures. For the quilt to be quick, I used a whole cloth top with had cute cars all over it. The backing was a bright yellow checked and the binding was dark blue with little white stars. I already had all the fabrics on hand and machine quilted it. It turned out pretty cute. The burp cloths were made from camo-frogs and some monkey flannel. I trimmed them with ric-rack. They were really cute too.

4. Busy! Its such a busy time at our house this time of year.

Hope you had a nice weekend. Ours was busy, but still nice.

Lizard! My mom has them bad at her house. I remember one coming in on her back one time. :o) I love rural mailboxes. I have a plastic mailbox too, but not as decorative as yours. I like the flowers around yours too. A quilt in a day... I'm very impressed.
