~ Simple Country Life ~

Good Monday afternoon stitching friends.

In my corner of the world we are being blessed with 
a gorgeous cool summer!  

No need for air conditioning at night, just a cracked fact
the temperature has been so cool I have to shut the window
completely during the night! 


Lovely weather for working outside!

I didn't have time to plant a garden this year, so I've been
enjoying going to our local 'farmers market'.


Do you have a special tape measure in your sewing basket?
Here is one from my sewing collection of goodies....

~ Early Nickel-Plated Brass; Turtle ~

This style of turtle tape measure always has a little 
saying on the top; this one says ~

'Pull my head not my tail'

The real early ones will always have a cloth tape.  

Also, an early turtle tape should always have a nice old
patina to the nickel-plated brass.  


Last year for my birthday my dear friend Olga (hi Olga) sent 
me this wonderful gift.....

It's a sweet little night light that plugs into an outlet.  The
design is a alphabet sampler!

This was such a lovely gift....I enjoy it out in my Studio.

Over the weekend while looking for
something, I discovered I had kept the
original box it came in, so if your 
interested in purchasing one.....

The front of the box has all the contact information listed.

....and the back of the box has the bulb information.

Their website offers LOTS of different designs to pick from,
and I think my friend Olga picked out the best one!


My book review this week is for a primitive style magazine....

~ A Simple Life Magazine~

Here's the contact information.

Here's an example of the contents of this lovely 

This issue contained 97's a nice thick magazine!

Every issue is packed with great country decorating ideas.

.....gardening ideas

....sewing ideas, and much more.


I finally got a picture of a butterfly.....

Great contrasting colors!

The sad thing is, its got a broken wing!

Hopefully after resting it will be okay?


I love good pictures of chickens & roosters....this was
at a local farm.


While on our Sunday drive yesterday we passed this
load of army vehicles....

This was taken in Tomah, Wisconsin.  There was a convoy of 
six army semi's hauling equipment to Fort McCoy in 
Sparta, Wisconsin.


For my fellow rabbit's a nice 
old clip art print to enjoy.
