May 3, 1973. Note how no one in this photo is smiling. Love it.
Also, it's a new month, so that means a new calendar page:
|Papers are from Stampington & Co., vintage measuring tape, and yellow flower trim that I can't remember the brand. |
This week Jacob and I also started planting some flowers. This year I'm trying out some new ones, including lilies:
These were on sale for a dollar each at the Hy-Vee garden tent, so I figured what the hell. Gardening is a lot like gambling for me. I spend a bunch of money without guaranteed results. But it's sure fun digging in the dirt and seeing if I can manage not to kill a bunch of flowers. I did okay last year, so I'm hoping I can keep most of what I bought alive!
I've also been busy working on just a few more things for Market Day this Saturday:
All in all, a good start to what's probably my favorite month of the year. May is busy. There's always a lot going on. Lots to celebrate. Hope you have a fabulous month. If you're in Des Moines this Saturday, come down to Market Day and say hello! It's also the opening day of the Farmers' Market, which is always lots of fun.
