Due to the fact that I have not replaced my camera yet (the one on loan to me and I are not getting along these days), I am still digging around in my picture archives to see what I have on file. I did not take this picture (could not find the source) - It is one from an estate sale listing some time ago. I had C&P the picture with intentions to attend the sale and do a post on it also, but it did not happen. This sale would have been a milk glass collectors haven..........
I know many of you collect milk glass and would loved to have been at this sale. Collectors of milk glass would drool over this like I would over a table of vintage rhinestone/bling jewelry bits and pieces. Everyone has their favorites!
Orange Ladybugs?!?!?Walked out in the courtyard a few days ago to do some Fall cleanup. You know - all the leaves, acorns, hickory nuts, pine needles and any other tree debris the winds brought down recently when the latest cold front came thru. Glanced down and noticed a orange ladybug (actually an Asian beetle) had landed on the rabbit statue's nose. Then noticed there were several of them in the same area. Hope we don't have an invasion of them as I have heard they can be a problem and smell ! Anyone ever had an experience of an "over abundance" of them in your area?
An Abundance of Nuts: Speaking of hickory nuts and acorns - I have heard when there is a bumper crop of acorns and tree nuts, it is a sign of a very cold Winter. I sure hope that is not true, because I don't think I have ever seen the trees by me produce as many as they did this year.
Are You Ready for Thanksgiving ? I am NOT! Said it before and will say it again - Hard to believe it is that time of the year again. Don't know how much I will be around this next week - House full coming and things to get done. Will visit around when have a chance. Just a Dab of This and That. Have a great week! Glenda
I have been on a "shopping free diet" for some time now, with the exception of the necessities. Still on a mission to "clean out" around here, and I have not worked on that mission for some time now due to other "stuff" going on.. Of course "necessities" does include jewelry making supplies, so made a trip to a bead show last weekend.
Replaced my supply of rhinestone balls and rondelles, some vintage flatware pendants. Also found some chain with beads already added and a locket that I plan to add a bit of bling.
Of course gotta have beads and a few pendants............ Now I just need to get busy - Christmas is not that far off.
It is that time of the year - More lists to be made! Decorate for the holidays, gifts to be bought/made and wrapped, cards to be addressed and mailed, the "to do" list to get the house in order for company (especially since you are still finding pieces of last year's Christmas tree between the carpet and baseboard), and that mile long grocery list to make all those yummy dishes that we indulge in only once a year, and those social obligations you had rather NOT deal with. WOW! That is a long sentence! :-D
I made the comment recently that I may not put up a Christmas tree this year and thought I was going to insight a riot ! For many years I have put it up before everyone is here for Thanksgiving as the Grands look forward to it so much - almost like the beginning of their Christmas festivities. Hard to believe the holidays are here again - Guess I need to make a decision pretty soon..........
How about you - do you put up a tree every year ?
What ever your plans are for the weekend - Have a great one!
Most of what is going on around the "Dab of This and That" house these days are not things to post about. So..... I dug around in my pictures, and these are some I took when in Franklin, TN about 3 yrs. ago. After starting this post, I remembered I posted over 2 1/2 yrs. ago about visiting the old cemetery, so some of you may remember seeing them already.

This couple had 3 children and all died very young - very sad.
Took some of them to picasa and did a little editing.
The pictures pretty much speak for them self.............
