July Picturethis


The Sunshine Challenge has come to its end. I'm happy it got me posting and I'm happy I found some new flisters! I really need to find a way to get that community feeling back again. Ah, well. Enough griping. Trying to return to illustrated posting! 

Spent my regular Tuesday/Wednesday with my mother. Typical thrifting for her antique stall. I scored these two Ringling Bros souvenirs - 



Happy with those two! $3.50. Also a nice book haul.

This photo was on her coffee table. Not sure why. First Communion for one of my sisters and me. I'm the one with the longer hair -



Sweetness.

We are in the grip of a mini-heatwave. Nothing like the East Coast and certainly manageable up here on the mountain, but dogs are hot -



So are the young'uns - 



And even the wildlife, trying to cool off in the just-watered vinca -

Photos!

I miss thrifting. I miss Guenter! I was going to go after my doctor's appointment, but I was finished before it opened and I didn't have the strength to wait. I'm so glad you were able to go with your mom. Are you still finding book treasures? Your mom has a stall? Cool!

Poor hot puppy!

Your daughter and friends look nice and cool by the pool.

Love the picture of you and your sister. So sweet.

I do love thrifting...but sheesh, M, do I really need more crap???? Books are piling up and stuff like these two. But I LUFFS them!

I think we may be talking about different Guenters.

It's the thrill of the hunt! And rummaging through other people's stuff. ;-)

Maybe! I thought you were talking about Gunther Gebel-Williams.

No doubt its the hunt! And yep, seeing what other folks discard or kept pristine for years!

Ah, I was talking about my Guenter who used to take me thrifting, who passed in June. :-)

I watch a lot of thrifting channels on Youtube. You guys have amazing thrift stores!

Oh, that makes perfect sense! *hugs* Why is thrifting so much more delightful with another person??? I guess to celebrate the crazy finds and treasures!

Those elephants are adorable. I need to do a thrift store run sometime soon.

Who are those young'uns? Kidling1 and some of her friends?

That poor dog has so much hair-- at least for this climate!

Yep, Kidling1 and a friend of hers on the far right and the girlfriend of Kidling2's friend who happens to be the brother of the far right gal!

He loses two coats every spring, but yes, it's a lot of hair. I don't understand how folks have these dogs down in the valley or SoCal! :(

How's your kitty fella?
