Mosaic Monday

Again the mosaics are here - I love Mondays!!!

Stop over at the Little Red House and visit all the other Mosaics.

I have two mosaics this Monday - the first one is our grandsons at the
NW WA Fair - in August. My mosaics are about summer - because I don't
want fall to come - I don't care for it all that much - I would much rather have
summer, or spring, or even winter. Our summers here are simply gorgeous
and I never want them to end - so here is summer - two little boys at the fair - and their grampy riding on the merry-go-round.

And another summertime passtime . . . .

Picking blackberries. We came across this fabulous old house and asked the neighbors if they knew if the owners would mind if we picked the berries hanging along the driveway. The neighbors assured us that it was fine - as the owners were only there to bring things to the old house and to mow the lawn
and pick the apples from the orchard.

The house was in horrible condition and probably no one has lived there in years - but there was certainly a lot of stuff in it - upstairs on the main floor and in the basement - stacked high!!! One window was broken out in the kitchen and there were poles hung from wall to wall, full of all sorts of cloths - leopard print dresses, fancy hats, lots of men's suits, feathers and lacey things. The clothes didn't look like they have spent a rainy winter there, so they much have
been brought there fairly recently.

We picked 2 gallons of blackberries and had hoped to get back to pick more. So far we haven't, but we've thought often about the shabby old house and its funny contents.
