Life, Ten on the tenth
Comments 4

August ten on the 10th

A lovely day for today’s ten on the 10th. We headed into St Louis to explore a junk shop we like and to visit The Upcycle Exchange to check out some new yarn they have in.
We lunched at the Everest Cafe on The Grove and came home and made a ‘base’ in the garden!
The ‘base’ was built with supplies we got at the Upcycle Exchange and lots of imagination.
I am going to do a post about it next week with lots of photos.
Here are today’s terrific ten.

Flowers on a painted screen, only slightly spoiled by water damage.  Still lovely.

Cumin seeds and sweet thingys at Everest Cafe.

A fun day filled with treasure. You will be proud of me when I tell you I left it all except some wool. Now I need to find a knitting pattern, I am thinking a big lace look scarf. I have four shades of the yarns and I want to incorporate them all in a scarf/shawl type number.
Do you know of any good (by which I mean easy) patterns?
What are you up to this weekend?
