The Blue Jar

A gorgeous blue color of glass. Are you old enough to remember it ?

Yes, that is the logo on the bottom.

Today's blue jar. No beauty here.

Not flannel but still needed.

Yes, I have what my Dad called the 'epizootic' and part of the cure always includes Vick's VapoRub  along with DayQuil and one for night time too as well as Halls honey lemon cough drops. I may not be at full bounce tomorrow but I know I will be better.

A time line of the Vick's company and two interactive books can be  found here.

Longing for the Days....

..of Green. 
This photo from last May, when it seemed the whole world was green. I love green, all shades of green are beautiful to me.

A closer view of the cellar, the red Honeysuckle I planted and the Virginia Creeper just muscled it's way in over time. I do not use the cellar for the storage of food stuffs for which it was constructed. It is close to one hundred years old and supposedly constructed by a woman.

'Forever Dust'

It may be a permanent condition in my house. There is too much fun to be had elsewhere. Simple things like pen and paper to funnel time into creative endeavors. Take those few minutes of quiet and pick up a smart phone and the time slips into colors and shadings and picture with postage stamp edgings. Go here for a closer look. I hope you won't see any dust.

Downton Abbey

Just finished watching the first season of Downton Abbey, the PBS series that is getting raves and with good reason. It is so well done and the characters are just marvelous. The library has the complete season available on DVD, you can watch it on PBS on your TV, your computer, your iPad or iPhone.
