10 on the tenth and weekly photos 19/52

  10 on the tenth from Saturday, I didn’t post on Saturday because it was the Bead Soup Blog Party reveal and I didn’t want to be posting all day!  So here they are! 1.  Mr Y and I got up early to go a local church ‘Garage’ sale.  We got there so early we had to join a little line to get in.  Very keen!  I spotted this box as soon as we got there and I thought it would be ideal to store photos in.  When I bought it, it was labeled ‘suprise hardware $1’, so I took my hardware chances and got the box.  Turns out it is great for my photos and it was indeed full of hardware including some very nice hooks I will most likely use.  Good start to the sale! 2.  The jewels I made with the beads I received as part of the Bead Soup exchange. 3. and 4. A tin and buttons from the sale. 5. and 6. Award winning magnets!  Another score from the garage …

Last week saw the arrival of May which is one of my favourite months of the year, the weather is usually lovely,  gracefully welcoming summer and by the end of the month school is out. For the photo selection this week we have: Storm clouds and treetops.  Impending storms always seem to make the light glow and these trees look so bright.  As soon as I snapped this, I got rather wet as I had forgotten an umberella! A pretty two tone seed. Someone had left a spade in the volleyball court. Massive sheet of safety glass and me. The cloud factory. School field day. The sunflowers are 5cm tall. I hope this week has started well for you, let’s see what it brings.  Happy Monday!

  It has been a week of sunshine, a school concert, seed planting and a new shower!  We can’t use it yet because it would be a wet disaster, but when the bathroom is tiled, it will be the best! There are flowers everywhere I look, from dandelions to flocks of daffodils, all so pretty! We dragged out the Swingball which is in desperate need of a new ball at the end of it’s string!  The dog has nearly bitten our’s in half.  We can still whack it, but I am afraid it will fly into two pieces very soon. I caught these reflections on a local bridge when I was getting some photos for Through the Lens Thursday this week. To the Middle School band concert we go.  I am wearing my lovely new Bohemian Trader‘s scarf which I love so much! A tree on a hill to finish this week’s collection. Do you have exciting plans this week?  I have a card to make for a card exchange (post coming, got to make …

Last week was filled to the brim with sunshine and flowering trees.  Out came the flip flops and the nail varnish.  The nail varnish on toes is my way of gently persuading my feet out into the open air.  It is a chilly, rainy day today, so they are safely tucked up in boots again. So let’s have a glimpse of that sunshine again along with the dog guarding the new shower base, Mr Y helping remove the bathroom floor and waiting outside Trader Joe’s.  The last photo is of some pretty wallpaper we found under the skirting board in the bathroom.  Makes we want wallpaper in all the rooms again, look at those teeny flowers, so lovely.

Last week really saw the trees starting to bloom and we had our first tornado warning trip to the basement.  Lots of rain, wind and hail and a tornado touched down about three miles from here, yikes! The garden is getting planted and we bought and build a composter which is totally encouraging everyone to eat veggies just so we can compost the peelings!     Here’s to a happy sunny week ahead!  Do you have a weekly photo round-up?  Share in the comments!  I am linking up with Em at The Beetle Shack for her Weekly Stills collection.
