The large tomatoes have been used for tomato sandwiches. EVERY SINGLE DAY! I eat a tomato sandwich, at least one, every day. So does Yngwie. Dear husband prefers them in a bowl with cottage cheese. No matter how you eat them, they are sooooo delicious.
This weekend I plan to make salsa as I have an abundance of tomatoes, onions, and jalapenos from my garden.
So sewing has been put on hold, temporarily.
How does your garden grow?

My flowers are still blooming despite getting little water. This tiger lilly grew to about 5' tall this year.

I also got a couple of other things that I will share later on.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I got the fabric and the pattern at the thrift store so this purse cost at grand total of 50 cents! (Plus two new serger needles). The button is just decorative as the purse closes with velcro.
This purse was super easy to make, and I can see more of these being made in the future! Hope everyone has a great day!

When she was a teenager, she remembered the doll and she and her sister went out back and started digging. It took them a while but they finally found the doll! She put the doll in her trunk and there it stayed for decades. She finally showed it to me one year and told me her story. I asked how the doll got so cracked and broken, and she said the doll was used before she got it and I guess just age and heat made it worse. Anyway, the year I graduated from high school my Grandmother gave me this doll. It was stark naked so I made her this little dress. She has been proudly gracing the top of my entertainment center for over 20 years now. I wouldn't take any amount of money for her.
I think she is a beautiful doll with a sad story.

And here is a bonus photo of a sunset, just because I thought it was pretty!
p.s. I just noticed when I was proofreading this that THEY DON'T HAVE LIFE JACKETS ON! grrrr! ( I'm sure they were in the boat, but still...)

I am from a little brick ranch house beside our church. I am from walking to church with my family and best friend. I am from potluck dinners on the gounds with homemade ice cream being churned. I am a child of God.
I am from clothes washed on a wringer washer with Little Boy Blue bluing. I am from clothes hung on the line for the sun to kiss dry. I am from the smell of clean clothes being ironed. (One of my very favorite smells!).
I am from chicken houses, tobacco barns, smoke houses and equipment sheds. I am from running barefoot all summer long.
I am from climbing apple trees and riding bikes from sun up to sun down.
I am from vegetable gardens and eating ripe tomatoes right in the garden. I am from digging potatoes and picking corn and beans.
I am from the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This is forgotten far too much today.
I am from hard working honest parents and grandparents who gave me unconditional love.
I am from fried chicken, fried apple pies, and chocolate cake. I am from souse meat, corn bread, and homemade biscuits loaded with butter.
I am from peanuts in my Dr. Pepper, Hershey bars dipped in peanut butter, and mint julep taffy.
I am from a wonderful marriage with the greatest husband of earth. I am from a teenage son who is such a joy to me.
I am from finally finding peace with who I am. Plain. Honest. Country.
That's who I am.
