Sunday Scenes

The first sign of spring and we were off .......
.... to the craft centre





 We found a shop full of doormats





Novel idea, dogs with no heads, just hind legs and bums
Weird looking owls
Another doormat. I liked this one.


There were plenty of signs, too, but the best is shown at the end.

I like the garden picture doormat best too. Yes that last sign is sad but true. I hope the weather is good for you again today. The sun is out again here today I'm off out to enjoy it.

So glad to hear that spring has arrived in your parts, Valerie!

This was the strangest spring, wasn't it? And here as well. One day it felt like spring, the next it felt like fall. Right now we're getting unusually hot and humid full-summer weather. Yesterday it was over 90 degrees!!

Enjoyed your photos of the craft center. Love the dogs with no heads. And I agree, the doormat you liked best is awesome! It looks like a painting.

Have a lovely Sunday, dear lady!

Okay--THIS kind of shopping I can do! Right, you go, take photos and I'll tell you what to pick up!
Nothing from this trip, ty--we have a doormat that warns people about the dog in the bushes.
(we don't own a dog...LOLOL)

Valerie said...

John, the weather here isn't as good as yesterday... sadly!



Valerie said...

Ron, as I said to John there is a change in the weather. No two days are alike lately. We've had the coldest spring for 50 years. Heehee I think I should emigrate to your part of the world.

Valerie said...

Brian, I didn't make anything, everything was done by other folk.

Fun post, Val! LOVE the doormats and funky Owls. You saw all sorts of cool stuff there!

Geraldine said...

Looks like a fun place and what a beautiful setting too!

I hope you have a wonderful week Val. Looking forward to Monday Mirth!

Hugs, G

I like the look of that place Valerie, love the signs.

Paul Forster said...

Like the farmer's doormat. The craft place looked interesting with great doormats and owls.

Very cool! Reminds me of the artist's villa next to the San Diego Zoo. They're set up very similar to this, but on a smaller scale. Awesome Pics!!

Valerie said...

Geraldine, there was certainly a lot to see. We didn't get round it all because some of it was barred off for kids pleasures.... bouncy castles and the like.

Valerie said...

Herman, I would love to see a place dedicated to art.

I love the doormats! )

Valerie said...

Pearl, I would love to have a gimmicky one but never could pluck up the courage :O)

That last sign is Mr BC's motto!

CrystalChick said...

Looks like there was a lot to see at the craft centre. I like that one doormat... Friends welcome, relatives by appointment. haha
Hubby would like 'All you need is love, and a dog.' Since we have two dogs, I guess we're getting double the lovin'. And double the hair and the backyard cleanup... lol
Ooh, that ivy on the building is just divine! I have it on a few fences and so enjoy it. I'm sure there are tons of bugs living underneath the beautiful leaves, and it's very tenacious when it wants to grow away from the fence and thru the yard, but otherwise, very pretty!
