One Tin Box

 There was an estate sale near our house yesterday. I found this tin and was curious about who had made it. It is marked "Made in Belgium" so I assumed it might be a chocolate box.
 I found out that it was made by a company named Daher in England which is now The Tin Box Company in NY. Love this tin and you will see in my next post that it is an ironic find.
 In a small box at the same estate sale I found a bunch of quilt squares. SCORE!! I am loving the fabric. A real mix of mostly older cotton with graphic or floral prints. I've tucked it into my new tin box for now.
Here is some "cheater" fabric made to look like quilt squares probably from the 1970's cause it looks like Holly Hobbie style prints and colorways. :-)

Before Frost

Our fench line has really blossomed this year.
I'm glad that I was convinced to add a coral bells plant.

We are sad, like this tree to have to cut it down. 
This massive pine had to go as well.
It was killed in the terrible storm at the end of June this summer.
The wind twisted it so much that it tore the bark and inner parts that lead the sap up.
