Got Me A Goat, Reunion & Fairy Garden


Hubby and I went to the Trader's Flea market on the 4th...first thing in the morning. I've wanted one of these darling metal goats and I now have one. His name is "Billy" of course! Most of the time he is in the porch so no one steals him. Once in awhile he goes outside to "graze"! LOL!!!

 Here I am with my last living Uncle, Denny! He has Parkinson's disease. His head bobs around, his hands don't work as they should and he needs help to walk. His mind is fine :)  He should be wearing his glasses! He doesn't have many teeth left. He is pretty happy and enjoyed seeing us. We also had birthday cake for him. He is 9 years older than me! He is the last born of 11 children that my Grandparents had. It was bitter sweet....It appears that this disease runs in the family and seems to affect the men.



On a happier note, made myself a little fairy garden. Grand girl isn't into making them anymore :(  but I am!!

While up in the Brainerd area we stopped a a few antique shops and didn't buy anything! WEIRD!!! It's always fun to look. It was a little disappointing too! A couple of shops didn't have much to sell and weren't very "fresh"...Plus it was rather HUMID yesterday and temps in the 80's. Most of the shops didn't have central air!

Tomorrow is my duty day at Auntie M's! You know it would be fun to visit me there!!!
warmly,
deb

How darling is your goat! I've never seen one made of metal before. Now,I definitely need one! Have fun working. Hopefully, you'll have lots of sales to keep you busy!

Hi Deb, oh I love your little goat. What a cutie that is. We don't have trader Joe's here.
Such a special pic of you and your Uncle. My father had Parkinson's and I understand this too well. My dad did not have the head or limb movements however but did have trouble with beginning to walk. Once he got moving he was fine.

Lovely sweet Fairy Garden. I have yet to create one and would like to try it. Thanks for the inspiration.
I love your hair style. So pretty!!
Enjoy your duty day!!
Hugs

Your fairy garden is cute, love those tiny plates on the bench and cute little "Tink" and ballerina! :) I'm sure your uncle enjoyed the visit! My grandmother has 8 brothers and sisters, so nine total including her, that my great grandma had. Love your cute new goat!! Be careful goats will eat anything, watch your pretty flowers! :) lol. xo Holly
