Burgers in Birmingham

I have always enjoyed flying. Especially in small planes. My husband can fly, I even took a few lessons.
We have a friend who took us to lunch one day.

The Runway Restaurant (near Birmingham Alabama) is where you park your plane on the grass in front, and proceed to pork out on good burgers. The women sat in the back and tried to talk in all the noise, find their houses, do allot of sign language, and take photos of the Tennessee River ways. I tried to tell my hubby he was long, long overdue for a hair cut that morning.
But, that day it was more fun to go to
Birmingham for a Burger.

Crochet Dreams

I don't remember where or when I got this,,probably an estate sale in Oregon...I have had it a long time,(it's 40") it was a mess, so I finally got around to pressing and repairing it, trying not to alter it too much. It is on a soft linen with pulled threads. I wonder about the woman who made it,, what Her Dreams were,,,do you think it was it a sampler for her own records,....hummm...
I like to think she would be Glad someone appreciated it.

It is laying on my Great Grandmothers Quilt that means so much to me.

I might have to make one of my own, I don't crochet, yet, but I won't let that stop me.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

A Little Fun

I managed across this aqua hat at a great antique mall I discovered recently.
This is the outside,,,my kind of place..It was Just Loaded with goodies!

 I freed this iron planter to hang on the brick, between two windows on the front porch.
A much nicer life for it than stuck in that tub.

The good thing is it was a "cash only" kinda place,,,saved me from over spending.
They don't have booths either,,it is grouped by theme and colors inside.
I will go back.
