Talk of the Town #72

It was a busy, but wonderful weekend for my family. My niece got married yesterday and all of my kids and two of my sons’ fiancées were there, so it was wonderful having our entire family together for the wedding.

Vintage Cutting Board Kitchen Chalk Board

Vintage Cutting Board Kitchen Chalk Board Here’s a little randomness I learned this week … Did you know a group of cats is called a clowder and a litter of kittens is called a kindle?

Lots of fun things have been happening in our family recently. First, my daughter brought home two baby kittens last week that had been abandoned. They have been a delightful source of entertainment.   Then my husband and I spent a few days in the Ozarks with my middle son and his fiance.

Wooden Spoons Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Art

Wooden Spoons Rustic Farmhouse Kitchen Wall Art Before I share today’s project, I’ve got a question for you. What kinds of things do you collect? If money were no object, there are so many things I’d love to collect, like antique quilts. But, alas, money IS an object, so I’m a cheapo collector. 🙂 In fact, the most money I think I’ve ever spent on something I love to collect was a whopping $18 for an antique ironstone pitcher. I {Read More}
