Over the Weekend...

Over the weekend
I did a little shopping at a new local antique store
and took a day trip to Mount Rainer...

I thought I would shared some randomness
 from each....

(click photos to enlarge)

I picked up these little felt acorns
at the new shop...


the tops are real acorn tops...


I thought the would be so fun for white vignettes
in the fall...

On the trip to Mount Rainer we saw snow
but I thought everyone has seen enough of that lately
so I didn't take any pictures of that....
ha ha :-)


I never see a stand of Birch trees in the forest
without thinking of Bev Doolittle's paintings...

Do you see the deer?


I loved these little white wild flowers,
I have no idea what they are....


but they made made a beautiful ground cover
on the forest floor...


our weather has been beautiful today
and I have been busy in the garden,
so much to do!

I will be be back tomorrow with
some pretty pics :-)


Thanks for stopping by...

A getaway would be nice! So glad you got a bit of one. I would NOT have noticed the deer! Those are sweet little acorns, and sweet wildflowers. So much beauty in your neck of the woods!xx

Bella, those felt acorns are so cute-they will be perfect for the Fall!! Your trip to Mt. Ranier was beautiful. I think those white little flowers are oxalis, atleast that is what they look like.

Those little acorns are adorable! And yes, I saw the deer even before reading, where you ask about seeing it :)

Hope your week is going wonderfully ~ It's to be near 80 here is Michigan today; Whoot! Whoot!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

I also thought it might be oxalis. I have a pink oxalis that is a weed to me and very difficult to eradicate. Every little bitty piece of root/bulb can grow a new plant. Grrr. Lovely but invasive. Your photos's are georgeous. We lived in Brier Wa. for a year and a half, durring our Navy years. We loved it up there.

Dawn said...

Love Dawn xx

Beautiful photos! I love the ones of the forest. I'm thinking it's time for me to take a day trip too; I'm so tired of staying at home.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

The acorns are so cute! That does look like Oxalis or Wood Sorrel. I have it growing under a cedar tree and it's just blooming. It hasn't been invasive in my yard and loves the shade.

Love the acorns. I've made them but mine were not as cute! The little bell flowers are oxalis, one of my favorites. Sorry to be so late at commenting...thanks to blogger!
Happy WW anyway!
